Available for Author with Extended Access
We are introducing Item Banks to support institutions' need for maintaining control of their test assessment content, as well as allowing authors to better organize their content. Learn how to create an Item Bank here.
Within the Item Bank, you can move and import content (defined as Questions / Question Sets / Content Blocks) from the Authoring page, as well as between different Item Banks. It is recommended that you move your existing content from the Author page into Item Banks, should you wish to have access to it within your Item Bank.
This article will show you how to move content between Authoring and Item Banks and content between item banks.
- Moving content between banks will be logged and visible under Recent Events in the dashboard
- Only question sets located within item banks can be added to tests.
- Your bank prefix will replace the Author module in the menu header to indicate which Item Bank you are working out of.
Moving content between Authoring and Item Banks
- Make sure you are in the Authoring page. Choose Question Sets, Questions or Content Blocks from the Author drop down; this depends on what type of content you wish to move.
- To move content between the Authoring page of Inspera Assessment to Item Banks, select the content that you want to move by selecting the checkmark box to the left and press Move to other bank at the bottom of the page.
