Import Questions

Import Questions allows you to add your own multiple choice questions to the quiz using Respondus format.

This is a useful tool if you have a large number of multiple choice questions you want to add from another document. Just copy and paste the questions into the text box.

If your quiz is longer than 30 questions, we recommend that you import a maximum of 30 at a time.
