Is there a way to import questions to a forms test from external databanks ie. from textbook companies?

Hi @laskyd 

 

There's no way to do that as yet. Each question will have to be made one at a time and configured as needed. You will also need to set up branching if required.

 

Best wishes

 @Damien Rosario Is this still the case?

Hi @cbitter78 

 

Still the case unfortunately. Still something being requested by many:

Hi@Damien Rosario 

I use HotPotatoes to create those question banks. If it's too complicated (you end up with a bunch of HTML files you need to tie together and publish), Learningapps can be interesting.

Not even H5P can handle question banks with random selection....

Kind regards
