Brightspace Tip #378: Quiz Question Converter

Do you want your students to take a quiz or test online? Do you have a test that you normally administer on paper and you don’t want to retype all the questions into Brightspace? The Quiz Question Converter is a tool, from the Brightspace Community, that you can use to add a bank of questions to the Quiz Question Library.

The Quiz Question Converter will create a CSV file for import into Brightspace. Quiz questions have to be in a special format in order to be imported into Brightspace.
