How to Add an Existing Question to a Test

To find questions, you will have to include certain metadata when you create or edit the question. This includes categories, topics, and keyword options. The more specific you are with this data, the easier it will be for you to find the question later. The purpose of the question finder is to help when you are adding additional, existing questions to a test.
