  2. The Manage Quizzes page will open. Select Question Library.
  3. Select New.
  4. Select Section.
  5. The New Section page will open. Enter a name for the section in the “Section Name” field.
  6. Select Save.

The Question Library page will appear again, and the new section will appear in its list of items.
