If you want to write your own version of an existing question, you can duplicate and edit any question in our question bank. Any questions you write or edit will be available in any future courses you teach, but they are private to only you.
On your main course page, click on the name of an activity to open the activity editor. Any Flash-based activity will do, but it's generally more efficient if you choose the assignment to which you plan to add the question when you're done.
Open the activity editor
Find the question you want to edit in our library. If the question is already in the assignment, you can select it and then click the locate button to locate that question in the library.
Locate the question in the Question Bank
If you don't see the question you want in the assignment, click the book icon to open the library, then browse through the question banks on the left to find it.
Click on a question to select it, then click the duplicate button. The copy will appear at the bottom of the question list since it is sorted by ID in ascending order. If you click the ID column header, you can sort by ID in descending order, which will place the newest questions at the top of the list.
Select the question and duplicate it
Tip: Any duplicates you create will have You in the Source column.
Edit the question copyOnce you have located the new question, click to select it, then click the edit button.
Make the changes you desire. Check all of the tabs of the question in case your change affects them. It's probably a good idea to call your Client Success Specialist the first time you do this, so they can walk you through everything and make sure you understand what everything means.
Note: The question saves every time you change to a new tab (from Question to Correct, for example).
You can also edit an existing question to create something brand new. This might be a good idea for your first few questions, so you can see how our feedback and variables work. In some cases, though, it might be easiest to start from scratch.
Test your question
Very important: Preview your question to view and answer it as a student. Always do this to make sure the question works the way you think it does, no matter how certain you are. You might have missed something, and it's always possible you'll find a bug in our authoring. It's far better that you find mistakes before your students do.
To preview a question, you can double-click it, or click on it and click on the preview button. The preview window will open below the question.
