Creating a Quiz Pool Using Multiple Question Banks
Select the LaunchPad unit to which you would like to add a new quiz (in this case, Chapter 1). Under this unit, select "Add to this Unit" and click "Create New" from the drop-down menu that appears.
Provide a title for your quiz or assignment (in this case, "Quiz 1"), and add any necessary directions in the text box. Then click "Save."
Click the menu button next to "Create" and select "Question Pool" from the drop-down menu that appears.
Enter a title for your question pool (in this case, "Pool 1"), and enter the number of questions to select from the pool (in this case, "3"). Then click "Create."
To add a question to your pool, select the question bank you wish to use from the left side of your screen.
First, choose the chapter or assessment from which to pull the questions (in this case, "Chapter 1: Life").
Next (if applicable), choose a subset of questions within your selected question bank (in this case, "Multiple Choice").
A list of available questions will appear. To add a question to the pool, hover your mouse over the question and click "Add to this assessment."
In the drop-down menu that appears, select the pool to which you would like to add the question (in this case, "Add to 'Pool 1' pool").
When a question has been successfully added, a green box labeled "Quiz Updated" should appear in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
To add questions to the pool from a different question bank, click on the "Questions" tab and select a new question bank. Repeat the instructions in Step 8.
*Note: You can add as many questions as you wish. Students will only receive the number of questions you chose to be selected from the question pool.
When you have finished adding questions to the pool, you may edit any assignment settings (due date, point values, number of attempts, etc.) by going to the "Assignment" and "Settings" tabs.
