Once a TEST has been created it can be EDITED. A warning page appears if any students are in the process of taking the Test or have already taken the Test when Edit is selected. Instructors and TAs can both edit existing questions and add new questions to a test. Note: Certain areas, including existing questions of the Test, are not available to edit if the Test has already been taken by students.  New test questions can be created within the test canvas, imported from existing tests or POOLS, or uploaded from a local computer or the CONTENT COLLECTION
