Don't add members, add lists.

Ie, the only member of the "reply to me" list is the discussion/
announcments list.  I don't think "Poster" is appropriate here; you
should set the reply-to explicitly to the quizmaster's address.  If
you have multiple quizmasters, you can have a separate owner password
for that list only, and give it to the quizmasters so that they can
reset the reply-to to their own address immediately before posting.

There may be additional configuration you want to do, to make it look
as though the quiz list is the same as the original, or maybe you
