Test banks are pools of questions from which instructors can create quizzes, assessments, and exams. The questions could appear on a printed exam, in a learning management system, or in other assessment software. If you have questions about how your test bank will be distributed, talk to your Cognella rep.
You can build test banks in Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word.
Building a test bank in Excel allows for the inclusion of valuable metadata alongside questions. For example, providing the difficulty level alongside each question enables instructors to create balanced exams or multiple versions of an exam, each with the same level of difficulty. If you’d like to build a test bank in Microsoft Excel, ask your Cognella rep for a template.
To create a test bank in Microsoft Word, follow the formatting instructions in this guide.
