Question Banks

Note: It is your responsibility to handle question banks securely and appropriately to prevent them from becoming widely available and searchable via the Internet.

These quiz questions were created for a generic U.S. History textbook and may not align perfectly with this version of the text. Please review the questions before adding them to your course. Some additional quiz questions are also available through the American Yawp website.

We provide quiz banks as QTI files, a standard format that allows you to import questions, build, and customize quizzes in most learning management systems (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.). These files cannot be opened outside of an LMS.

According to Lumen company policy, we do not provide quizzes in written (e.g. MS Word) form, in order to preserve the academic integrity of our quiz banks on behalf of everyone using our materials. We adopted this policy after observing how easy it is for quiz banks in written formats to find their way onto websites that promote academic cheating.

There are 16 question banks with a total of 329 multiple choice questions.
