Canvas - How do I duplicate classic quizzes in a Canvas course?

Quizzes can be tricky when trying to copy into the same course. They still have some association with the original quiz in the backend code of it and can result in a big mess if you are using in the same course it was created.

Instead of trying to copy quizzes or creating new ones from scratch every time, create a quiz question banks with the question(s) you will be using continually.

Here is how to:
If you have already created the quiz in a course, those questions will be in an unfiled question bank. You can create a new question bank and move the question from the unfiled into the new question bank.
