Question Pools

A question pool allows a faculty member to create and search collections of questions. Questions can be grouped by any number of criteria, including topic, subject matter, question type, or the difficulty of questions. A pool can be used to generate an assessment with randomized questions selected by the faculty member. Pools can be created from new questions or questions in existing tests or pools. Pools are most effective when there are large numbers of questions in one group. For example, one might have a pool of true/false questions, another of multiple choice, and a third for fill-in-the-blank. The faculty member could then create an assessment drawing a specific number of questions from each of the question-type pools.
