D2L's question library is a repository for quiz questions. You can use it to not only store quiz questions, but also randomly add questions or subsets of questions to your quiz.
As a best practice, we recommend that you create a section in your Question Library, then add your quiz questions to this section. This will make it easier for you to select the questions you want to add to your quiz, especially if you plan to randomize the questions on your quiz. (See the
Randomizing Quizzes guide for more information.)
There are 12 question types in D2L (multiple-choice, written response, etc.), and the process for building each question type is slightly different. This section provides an overview of the process, but detailed, step-by-step instructions for each question type can be found on the
D2L Resource Center website.
NOTE: You can preview questions as they will appear to students by clicking the
Preview button at the bottom of the page.
Once you've added questions to the Question Library, you can create quizzes with randomized questions. View the
Randomizing Quizzes guide for more information.
