Create a Question Pool

Question Pools allow instructors to give students a set number of randomly selected questions from a larger pool of questions. For instance, the questions for a 25-question quiz can be arranged to be randomly selected from a pool of 50 questions. To do this, you must have questions saved in your question library or previously created quizzes with questions in your course.

NOTE: Question pools are created at the quiz level.
