Creating a Question Bank
To get started, go to: Admin > Training > Question Bank
Name your first question bank and think about leaving it inactive until all your questions are just right. Once your question bank is active, it is then available to be used in or copied to assessment modules.
Note: When a question bank is used in one or more assessment module(s), it can not be made inactive until it is removed from all modules.
To view what modules are currently using a question bank, open up a question bank to edit mode and directly under the general settings section is a section called “Modules Using this Bank”.
After you have created a question bank, you can:
Write questions manually
Import questions by downloading and using the .csv questions template. Make sure you click the link that says: "Read this information prior to your first upload". This information will prepare you for a successful question upload.
While you can write questions individually for an assessment module, you can also select a question bank to populate questions for your assessment.
Use bank controlled questions:
If the questions in the bank are ever updated, they are then automatically updated in every assessment module that uses that bank.
Copy a question bank:
Choosing to copy a question bank enables you to copy individual questions to your assessment and edit them for that module.
Question settings in the Module Assessment Settings section are for questions in blue on the left hand pane that you:
- Write individually
- Import directly
- Copy from a question bank
To edit how bank controlled questions are delivered from a question bank while editing a specific assessment module:
- Click the Edit Assessment button
- Click the pencil image for the green question bank row.
Remember to always click the Save Assessment button before you navigate away
from the assessment module. Otherwise, your question changes and settings will
not be saved.
