Using question pools

We just migrated from Sakai. In Sakai, I had question pools for each quiz in my course. I had, for a given quiz, a pool of true/false questions, a pool of multiple choice questions, and a pool of short answer questions. For each quiz instance (student), a different set of questions would be on their quiz; drawing 10 from T/F pool, 10 from Multiple choice pool, and 2 from short answer pool. I'm trying to figure out how to do this in Brightspace but I haven't found much documentation for using the question pools this way on this website. Help! Thanks.

    Hi @Marilyn.Z.744

    Thanks for reaching us through the Brightspace Community.

    When editing/creating a new quiz, go to 'Create New' and click 'Question Pool'.

    Next, you will be able to filter question types that will populate your pool:

    After selecting the desired questions, click 'Import'.

    Next, you will be prompted to name your newly-created Question Pool and choose the number of questions your students will have to answer out of that particular pool.

    Finally, click 'Save'.

    I hope this is useful.
