8. Quiz

8.7. Moving existing questions into a question category

If you are amending an existing quiz to add questions or move questions around, you can move existing questions in a Quiz into the appropriate categories in the question bank once you’ve set up the categories, then amend those questions if necessary.

To move an existing question into one of the question categories, open the question in edit mode. You will see the ‘use this category’ box is checked if a question is already in a default category:

Uncheck that ‘use this category’ box and select the appropriate category for that question from the dropdown box which is now available to you.

Save the changes to the quiz question.
