Moodle: Activities & Resources: Adding Quiz Questions to a Quiz

After creating a Quiz, you must add questions to it. You can create new questions, or add questions from the Question Bank. If you create a new question, it will automatically be added to your Question Bank.

Note: Because questions are pulled from the question bank, changes that are made to the content or choices of a question will impact all quizzes where that question is asked. You can duplicate questions within the question bank if you want to create different versions of them.

To Add Quiz Questions to a Quiz:

1. Log into Moodle and select desired course.

2. Click on the desired quiz within the course that you wish to add questions to, then click on the Admin icon (gear symbol) to the top right side and select Edit Quiz.
