    Thank you for your inquiry.

    We regret to inform you that there is no straight forward option to export the entire quiz or quiz questions from the Quiz Library as the CSV file at this time.

    However, you can use the Import/Export/Copy Components tool to copy a specific quiz or a question library to another course (please see the link below for instructions).

    Alternatively, you can create your own CSV file with the questions and import it when needed:

    You can download a sample CSV template from the Question Library tool by following these steps:

    1. In Question Library, click Import.
    2. From the Import button, select Upload a File
    3. From the Upload a File dialog, select the source where existing questions reside by clicking Browse Files and selecting the file or dragging and dropping the selected file into the Upload a File dialog.
    4. You will find a link to download a template CSV for the question creation

    For more information about the Quizzes tool and its features, please refer to this article:

    Additionally, I have found that there is a new Freemium offering in the Learning Center that can be used to create a CSV file for import into the Brightspace Question Library. INOTE: this tool can be used if you have a Word version of the quiz. The Quiz Question Converter allows you to input your questions in a word document (instructions for how to make the word doc follow and are also accessible from inside of the Learning Center), and converts the word document into a CSV file for you.

    Although we hope to make additional improvements to the Quiz Question Converter in the future, at this point D2L is not committed to supporting or maintaining it. Nevertheless, we welcome your feedback and encourage you to share tips, tricks, extensions, etc., with your fellow Community members!

    I hope this helps,
