D2L updates & quick tips

Creating Randomized Quizzes with the Question Library

leave a comment »

The Question Library tool in Desire2Learn lets you do two things:

  1. Take an existing quiz (transferred from Blackboard, or an older course) and scramble the question order.
  2. Create a quiz that randomly selects questions from older quizzes. Since each student will have a different selection of questions, this enhances test security.

The PDF handout below is also useful if you have uploaded a question bank or course cartridge from your publisher and need to learn how to make quizzes from it. If this is the case, you can upload your course cartridge file by clicking on  the Edit Course button in the upper-right corner of your course, and selecting Import/Export/Copy Components. Upload the cartridge using the Import option.
