Creating Quiz Questions

When creating a quiz it is important to remember there are two main parts; creating the quiz ‘front cover’ and the questions themselves – which are stored in the question bank. This article will show you how to create categories in the question bank (to keep it more organised) and some broad instructions for creating questions.
