Question Bank to Item Bank Possible?

Follow

Is there a way to convert a Question Bank that was created from a current Test/Quiz format in schoology to a Item Bank that can be seen and used by the Assessment section in schoology.  We know that you can create a Question Bank from our current Test/Quizzes and we know that you can make a Item Bank from our current Assessments.  We want them to be able to be used interchangeable, is that possible?

    Hi all,

    Item Banks for Course Assessments are on our Product Roadmap.

    I recommend following the Product Roadmap to receive updates on the progress of this feature.

    You can view the different phases here, here and, here.

    Best,

    Please help!  I can export my test from TestGen (from Pearson) into a Blackboard.  I can then import the blackboard into a question bank.  But assessment doesn't give me the option to import questions from question bank. Only item bank .... :(

    Thanks.

    Nina, your response doesn't answer the request at all. What you linked to only discussed moving questions between several item banks. We want interchangeability between question banks and item banks (or at the very least the ability to convert a question bank into an item bank, since there is the option to convert a quiz/test into an assessment). I have hundreds of questions in question banks that I will have to rewrite for item banks to use them in the assessments. This is just not practical and will undoubtedly guarantee that I will not be moving to assessments, regardless of how much I would like to switch over for the enhancements provided within assessments.

    This seriously needs to be addressed as I have complex questions already made and it would take up way too much time to remake the questions.

    I'm with Amanda.  I had to manually type in my AP Chemistry test and took me 3-4 hours by the time I have to type and put in graphs, table, or pictures.  Very time consuming expecially considering I can import them into a question bank but not an item bank.  Please help.

    This new item bank is a nightmare.  I had to correct the key and now it will not regrade the 85 question test.  How can this be?  It is a feature of the former test/quiz.  Help!  There is no way I can grade all these tests by hand.

    So...they have something in there as of TODAY that converts from question bank to item bank.  Once you have your question bank.  Go to your gear box and there is an option to Convert to Item Bank.  It converts it to Item Bank.  I was then able to create a new assessment, go to Item Bank, find the specific one and import individual or all of the questions in the Item Bank.

    Thanks Schoology!!!!
