Create Question Pool

Question Pools in quizzes can be used to distribute a unique set of questions to individual students. For example, if you have a bank of 50 questions, you can create a question pool to pull a random sampling of 25 of the 50 questions for each student. You can have multiple question pools in one quiz. For example you can have a question pool of multiple choice questions and a question pool of written response questions.

Note: In order to create a question pool, questions must reside in the Question Library.
