Creating Questions in the Question Library

The cornerstone of any good quiz is a robust question bank built to test student's knowledge.

Creating your question in the Question Library, allows you to organise, and easily update questions across multiple quizzes. In addition, using sections, allows you to easily create a pool, to select random questions in your quiz.
