If you are looking to build quizzes that go anywhere beyond basic list of questions you will want to start learning more about the Quiz Library. The D2L Quiz Library allows you to organize questions (e.g. by topic, chapter, level of difficulty, type) into what are called a section. These sections can be easily pulled into quizzes and reused in other assessments. This organizational structure allows you to begin building tests designed to address different learning outcomes and sections can be randomized within your quizzes.
