Create 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 pathways is similar in functionality: one creates folders within the Question Library, while the other creates folders within a quiz. You can also import sections from the Question Library directly into a quiz or survey. Importing sections from the Question Library into an assessment will transfer section folders and all of their associated properties (section name, messages, images, or feedback) into the assessment. 

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