Quiz - Shuffle questions


This guide will show you how to shuffle questions in the Quiz activity.


What to know:

The shuffle function will put questions in that section into a random order . This can make it harder for students to share answers, but it also makes it harder for students to discuss a particular question with the teacher. Shuffling is recommended to be enabled in high-stakes summative assessments. 


The shuffling questions function is different from the "Shuffle" within questions function in the Quiz activity general setting. Please refer to Quiz settings  to learn about the shuffling within questions setting.
