How do I copy a quiz to another course?
As an instructor, you can copy individual quizzes in one course directly into any active course in which you are enrolled. You can also send quizzes to other instructors at your institution. When you copy a quiz, any assets within that quiz (images, files, etc.) will be included in your quiz copy.
- To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
- Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
- If you copy the same quiz to the same course more than once, the quiz you previously copied will be overwritten with the newly copied quiz.
- By default, quiz copies will not include unbookmarked question banks. To ensure your question banks are included, you must bookmark your question banks.
- Currently, this feature does not support copying quizzes with linked question banks. To copy a quiz with linked question banks, you must use the Course Import tool instead.
In Course Navigation, click the Quizzes link.
