How do I share an item bank in New Quizzes?

You can share an item bank with another user in New Quizzes or to another Canvas course. Item banks can only be shared with users with a teacher, TA, or admin role.

You can choose to share an item bank with view or edit access. Sharing an item bank with view access only allows the user you share with to view the item bank. Sharing an item bank with edit access gives users full access to the item bank, including adding items to the bank, sharing or removing users from the bank, and deleting the bank.

Note: Canvas Admins can also manage access to item banks for an entire account.
