Question Pools

 
Creating Question Pools within studentcentral can have a number of benefits when using online tests. An instructor can create multiple pools/banks of questions for use in studentcental tests. Questions can be labelled to allow easy searching of large pool. Then, when creating a test, the instructor can simply pick and choose appropriate questions from the bank for inclusion.


Creating Question Pools can take time, however they come with a number of benefits:

  • If you use tests regularly, creating pools is a much more effective way of storing and sorting the questions you are creating. 
  • An entire pool of questions can be added to a Test, or you can mix and match across multiple pools
  • You can copy Question Pools to your new instance each year.
  • You could create a shared pool of questions within a course area, meaning multiple staff can contribute and use the pool.

Creating Question Pools within studentcentral is very similar to creating an online test.
