Creating Sections in the Question Library

Create sections to organize your questions into folders. You can do this in the Question Library, or while creating an assessment by clicking Add/Edit Questions on the Properties tab. Either of these areas is similar in functionality: one creates folders within the Question Library, while the other creates folders within an assessment. You can also import sections from the Question Library directly into a quiz or survey. Importing sections from the Question Library will transfer section folders and all of their associated properties (section name, messages, images, or feedback). 

NOTE: Although you can create subsections within sections, we recommend you keep your question organization simple and intuitive.
