Your quiz can include a mix of automatically and manually graded questions.

Item Banks

Use item banks to randomly pull from a pool of questions, adding variety to your quiz. To create an Item Bank, open any quiz in New Quizzes and click the options menu in the top right corner (next to Return). Click "Manage Item Banks" >" +Bank." Give the bank a name and click "Create Bank." To add questions, open the newly created bank and click "+New."

To add banked questions to a quiz, open the quiz and click the "+" icon to create a new question. Select the piggy bank icon, then open a specific item bank. Click the "All/Random" button, then close the item bank to return to the quiz. Click to edit the new question, then under the Question selection options, choose whether to "use all questions" or "Randomly select questions." Enter the points per question, and click "Done."
