The relationship you're after is probably not workExample, unless the 
video is a representation of the same intellectual content as the 
textbook but in a different medium.

If you consider the test and video to be part of the content of the 
textbook, use hasPart. We're not paper-bound anymore so it's OK for 
videos to be parts of books.

{ ...
   "@type": "TextBook",
   "hasPart" : {
     "@type": "Chapter",
     "hasPart": [
        { "@type": "Video" },
        {
         "@type": "CreativeWork",
         "learningResourceType": "Assessment"
        }
     ]
   }
}

If the Video and assessment are not parts of the textbook then (as far 
as schema.org is concerned) they're just other stand-alone but linked 
resources.

A couple of things you might be interested in are:

- K12OCX <https://k12ocx.github.io/k12ocx-specs/>, a spec for marking up 
complex learning content such as courses (textbooks are similar)

- some ongoing efforts in LRMI <https://www.dublincore.org/about/lrmi/> 
to define a concept scheme for learning resource types 
<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pTZd1AQMdh52otziC_s_-iE3JZOPHSVOP_6D7Bk247I/edit#heading=h.dbbp5570samf> 
(sorry, you'll have to trawl the DC-LRMI Task Group mail archive 
<https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=DC-LRMI> for discussions 
about that and why we avoid terms like 'video' and 'text')
