How to organise my questions in the Question Bank using Folders and Tags?

You can organise questions in several ways on the EdisonOS platform. You should essentially begin by creating folders in the Question Bank. Although you could begin by creating a question directly in an assessment. This question would reflect in the question bank without a folder and would be difficult to track later on. So it is important to start with adding new folders to the Question Bank.

Adding Folders to the Question Bank with Tags

Sign in to EdisonOS using your configured email and password
From the Dashboard, click on Assessments.
In the menu under Assessments click on Question Bank
Click on Create Folder, highlighted in blue, to create a new folder.
Be sure to add a Title as well as +Add Tags in order to oragnise your questions according to domain and skill as well as with a unique folder name.

How Folder and Question Tags appear

PRO TIP: Organizing questions into folders with clear titles, relevant tags, and descriptive content enhances your ability to conduct efficient searches and facilitates the selection process. This method serves as the simplest approach to classify and categorize questions, enabling seamless reuse and accessibility across the platform for future reference and repeated use.

Classification of Questions Based on Difficulty Level

Each question can be classified as being of a particular difficulty, from "Very Easy" to "Very Hard."
Apart from "very easy," "easy," "medium," "hard," and "very hard," a question can also be set to "no difficulty."
