  13. 13. Pools Are Not Just for Swimming!     The Pool Manager allows instructors to store questions for repeated use. Pools from other courses can be imported through Pool Manager A pool SHOULD NOT be modified if students have already begun taking an assessment that draws questions from the pool. When creating questions for pools, instructors must add correct answers as if they are creating questions for Tests. These answers will be ignored once the question is copied into a Survey.
  14. 14. How does Creating a Pool Differ from Creating a Test?   Pool questions do not have point values associated with them. When a pool question is added to a test, the instructor can assign a point value A file of pool questions may be imported from the pool manager page
