Creating Questions in the Question Library

Use the Question Library to create any questions for a quiz, self-assessment or survey.

The information in this guide is intended for Instructors and Convenors.

The Question Library in the Quizzes, Surveys and Self-Assessments tool enables you to create and manage questions to help you maintain your questions organised. In this guide, we will be creating Quiz Questions. You can then create quizzes to evaluate students learning progress and provide immediate feedback. Select Survey or Self Assessments if you wish to create questions under those assessment options instead.

Below are the steps for accessing and managing the question library:


Step One: Access Quiz Question Library

 1. Select Quizzes from the Assessments menu.
