Item Banks

Follow

Wait - tell me if I have this right: The only way to add a test item to an item bank is to create one from scratch within the item bank? I can't add any questions from tests I've already made? 

If so, WHAT IS THE POINT.

     Hi all, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    Schoology released the current version of Item Banks to give instructors the ability to do the following: 

    • 1.Create an item bank in resources.
    • 2.Add questions to item banks.
    • 3.Add questions from an item bank to an assessment.
    • 4.Convert an existing test/quiz question bank to an item bank. 

    You can learn more about converting a test/quiz to an item bank here

    Currently, the option to  add items from an assessment to an item bank is not a supported feature. However, we are happy to report it is currently on our Product Roadmap. 

    Best,

    This is a great and important question! How do we convert Assessments into Item Banks, or at least how can we pull items from previous assessments?!

    It's strange that you can do this in the old Test/Quiz but not the "newer improved" Assessments. Dang!
