Test Question Bank for Assessments

It would be very helpful if questions created in assessments for a course would be stored in a question bank that would allow teachers to use them for cumulative assessments later in the course (ie. mid-terms, semester final exams, etc.)

    Now that a question bank is available, it would be wonderful if teachers could upload a document containing a large swath of questions at once. Textbooks typically include these types of support resources, and it is extremely tedious for teachers to copy/paste each question manually into an assessment before adding it to the assessment bank.

    Happy to report that this is a feature that the LMS team will be pursuing in the near future. No ETA on when the feature will be ready, but we are looking to begin some general discovery.

    It has been 5 years and still progress on this need?

    Agreed that with this ability the ability to import/export questions in a standardized format would be very useful.

    Need to import question banks into OnCampus so teachers do not have to do redundant manual entry.

    Agreed with Rick, this would be very helpful.

    Allowing for the importing of questions some other test bank programs is also a very needed feature.

    Any and all questions for CEA would be helpful.

    I agree with Bev. It'd be nice that if the first key had a teacher mistake (like forgetting to add points, or forgetting to mark the correct answer in a multiple choice, etc.) that we'd be able to go back and make that correction in the key, without having to type in the points then for 150 students.

    I would also like to see the feature for test keys to be changed after the assessment...incase the first key was wrong...this would save a lot of grief in correcting them by hand for over 100 students. Thank you.
