Moodle: Activities & Resources: Create Quiz Questions in the Question Bank

Instructors can create their quiz questions directly in the Question Bank before creating a Quiz. One may want to do this if they would like the questions added for the entire course before they create their quizzes.

Important Note:  Quiz Categories should be created before creating Quiz Questions in the Question Bank.  (How do I Create Quiz Categories?)

After adding your questions to the Question bank, please see: Moodle: Adding Quiz Questions to a Quiz.
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.
