CougarVIEW Instructor Guides: Importing questions - Import/Export/Copy

Need help with something in CougarVIEW? Good news! We have a number of guides to show you how to use the many tools and resources in CougarVIEW. These guides cover topics like using the grade book, setting up quizzes, creating groups, and many more.

Question Library & Import/Export/Copy Components - Add Questions from Other Courses

Overview : The Question Library serves as a central hub for storing, organizing, and accessing all your course-related questions, regardless of their origin (Quizzes, Surveys, or Self Assessments). This consolidation:

  • Simplifies transferring questions to new courses through the "Copy Course Components" feature.
  • Offers flexible import options from CSV files, learning object repositories, and direct integration with other course tools.

Important Note: When importing questions from the Library to Surveys or Self Assessments, points and difficulty indicators (not relevant in those contexts) are automatically removed. Additionally, Likert scale questions (specific to surveys) cannot be imported into other question types.
