In this tutorial, we'll look at how to create and manage question banks. To learn how to add slides to a question bank or draw them into your course, see these tutorials:

Creating Question Banks

By default, one empty question bank is automatically added to each Articulate Storyline project, but you can add as many as you'd like. (To add slides to the default question bank, called Question Bank 1, see this tutorial.)

To create a question bank:

  1. Switch to Story View and go to the Home tab on the ribbon.
  2. Click Question Banks and choose Create Question Bank.
  3. When prompted, enter a name for the question bank and click OK.

The new question bank will open, where you can add and edit slides.

Managing Question Banks

To add, edit, duplicate, rename, and delete question banks, open the Question Bank Manager.

    1. Switch to Story View and go to the Home tab on the ribbon.
    2. Click Question Banks and choose Manage Question Banks.
    3. When the Question Bank Manager opens, do any of the following:
      • Create: To create a new question bank, click the icon that looks like a blank piece of paper in the lower left corner. A new question bank will be added to the list, and its name will be open for editing. Type the name you want for your new question bank, then press the Enter key on your keyboard to open the question bank for editing.
      • Edit: To edit an existing question bank, click the pencil icon in the lower left corner. (Tip: You can also double-click a question bank to open it for editing.) Learn more about editing question banks.
      • Duplicate: To duplicate an existing question bank (and all its slides), click the icon that looks like two rectangles.
      • Rename: To rename a question bank, click the ab icon, type a new name, and press Enter on your keyboard.
      • Delete: To delete a question bank (and all its slides), click the trash can icon and confirm your deletion request.
