Adding categories to the Question bank is a great way to organise questions for each paper and quiz. This page explains how to add a category to your question bank.

  1. In your Moodle paper, select the More tab under the paper name.
  2. In the drop-down menu, select Question bank.
  3. At the top left, select Questions.
  4. In the drop-down menu, select Categories.
  5. At the top left, select the red Add category button.
  6. Check the Parent category is correct or change it by selecting another in the drop-down menu.
    :It is very important to check this drop-down menu and make sure the Parent category isn't a 'Top' category, as this type sits outside your paper and may make your questions hard to find.
  7. Add the Name of the category and any necessary information.
  8. Finally, select Add category at the bottom of the screen.
  9. Your new category will display in the Question categories page. You can change where it appears in the list, via arrows to the right of the category name.
  10. To add questions to your new category, select the category name.
  11. You will be taken to the screen below. Any questions created here will be stored under this category.

You can also move or copy questions to a different category.
