Copyright of test/exam questions

Are teachers allowed to use test/exam questions from textbooks to test their students? Would this be under fair use, or do teachers have to create the whole test/exam themselves?

I think teachers can use exam questions from textbooks. Some questions are necessary to ascertain whether learning has occurred. I would only be concerned if the questions were used without the textbooks being purchased - that is, stripped form textbooks to avoid a purchase.
One would assume that the questions do not make up the majority of the book, and that the majority of the protected content - not the questions - make the work of value.
