Authors can share their custom questions with other faculty authors for use in assignable custom exams.

If other authors are enabled under your group institution, you can view and use questions from others – if allowed by the question author.

Status Settings

Authors can set a status of questions for view and use.

  • Published
  • Draft
  • Under Review
  • Retired

Published questions are available to review and use in Custom Exams. Only the owner of a question can edit it. Question set to Draft, Under Review, or Retired will be available to the owner author to edit, but not available in custom exam builders.

Privacy Settings

In-group authors can make their questions public or private.

  • Me Only
  • Other Authors in my Institution (shared)

If a question is marked “me only” then no one but the owner can see the question. If a question is "shared" then other authors in your institution can see and use your questions in building their own custom exams.
