Import a question pool

From EdTech Help

A question pool is a set of questions of any types that belongs to the author and others with whom the author shares it. See What is a question pool?

A question pool is available to the author in any worksite in which that person has permission to create assessments, and will show in the list of Question Pools.

You can import a question pool from a saved assessment, or from a file provided by a publisher or exported from another system.

Note: There is currently no way to export question pools, but the questions can be exported in the form of an assessment.
