Question randomization allows you to shuffle questions from all or a selected parts of your online quiz. This means that respondents are shown questions in a differing order each time the quiz is taken.
You can choose to randomize all questions or select a set number from the whole pool of questions in your test.
Benefits of this feature are:
Note: The FlexiQuiz system considers text and media items to be questions and so they'll be shuffled along with other selected questions.
This guide shows you how to set up question randomization by shuffling your questions or how to randomly pull a few questions.
Your question randomization is now set up. Finish configuring, publish, and share your quiz. As per the rules you've set, students will now see your questions in a different order every time your test is taken.
You'll still be able to analyze results using the Response summary as the FlexiQuiz system identifies each question.
This feature enables you to randomly pull a set number of questions from all the questions that are in your online quiz. If you're an Enterprise or Premium plan member you can also pool all the questions together from all of your questions and then pick from bank.
Check out this example - the online math test we've created below has 10 questions, only 2 questions will be randomly shown
each time the quiz is taken. Do you get the same questions every time you take the test?

Top tip! If you're using the page time limits, the timing is applied to the page and not the question or text/ media item. For example, Question A could start on page 2 with a 1-minute time limit. However, after randomization is applied, question A is on page 6 with a 2-minute time limit.
It's not possible to apply a time limit to each question and use the randomize question feature.
Note! You can turn off the question randomization at any time. Just return to the Configure screen and un-check the box named Randomize questions.
