How can I add quiz questions?

When adding questions to a quiz, you have two options of adding questions for a specific quiz: a question group or to a question bank.

Question groups allow instructors to create a pool of questions that Canvas will randomly draw from. This creates a unique quiz for each student.

Question Banks are a place to house questions that can be added to quizzes across courses or accounts. This also creates a unique quiz for each student.

Before adding quiz questions, please ensure that you have created a quiz.
