The goal of a questionbank is to give access to numerous exercises in a certain field, which are all tested by colleagues. Furthermore, the exercises are part of an objective, so you can create an assignment or exam which matches the study goals of your course.
What is a questionbank?
In a questionbank, you can create, store, share, test, label and reuse exercises. Next to that, assignments or exams can be made using blueprints which matches the study goals of the course. In a questionbank you can work together with colleagues (even from different schools) to create exercises and test them.

- Match exercises to create an exam in line with the study goals of a course.
- Optimise exercises by letting colleagues comment on them and use (so test) them.
- Learn from instructors of other schools by reviewing each other's exercises.
- Faster compose an exam by (re)using existing exercises.
- Let Ans generate assessments based on a blueprint
