On the Dashboard page of your account you search for the Exam you want to add questions to.  You might have to create one first by clicking the Create new exam button in the upper right corner of your screen.

Once you've selected the Exam, please go to Questions and click on the tab Import.

Here you will find a .csv file and .xlsx file you can download. We recommend you to use either one (depending on whether .csv displays correctly for you) of them to create your own import file. If you use the .xlsx file make sure to convert it back to .csv when you're done.
