The Question Library is a central, shared repository for the questions you create, copy, and import. Use the Question Library to build an archive of questions that can be reused and shared in quizzes, surveys, and self assessments, thus avoiding having to re-input questions. If you plan to randomize questions in a quiz, the questions must reside in the Question Library.
Several of the Carmen tools—quizzes, surveys, and self assessments—share the questions stored in the Question Library. The questions that can be accessed by these tools are dependent on the tool type. Certain question types cannot be used by some tools. For example, Quizzes cannot use the Likert question type used in Surveys.
This overview lists the steps to add questions to and manage the Question Library. Follow the links below for step-by-step instructions on creating questions and using other features of the Question Library. You can also view a video tutorial on this topic.
Questions in the Question Library must be imported into the assessment tools in order for students to access them. See Quizzes: Overview for additional information on setting up and using Quizzes; see Surveys: Overview for additional information on setting up and using Surveys.
If you make a change to a question in the Question Library, you will be asked to choose which items (such as a quiz or a survey) using that question will receive the change.
The Question in Use pop-up displays the items that use any given question. Select all of the items to which you would like to apply the change and click Save.
