Question Pools

A question pool is a bank of questions that you can select from to create your assessments. When you create a pool, it is usable for all of your sites. You can also share a question pool with others, and others can share theirs with you.

  • Questions pools are set up in advance of an assessment, for convenience.  When you are ready to give your students an assessment, you can pull questions from your pools and also from pools that have been shared with you.  
  • Question pools serve as the basis for Random Question Assessments .  To give each student a different question on the same subject, set up a question pool with several equivalent questions on that subject, and then add a random-draw question using that pool.
  • Question pools can be subdivided into subpools, and those subpools can be further subdivided, for the organization that reflects your teaching methods.
