Brightspace offers two ways to randomise questions:

  • Add a Question Pool: Add a subset of questions from a larger question pool resulting in a different version of the quiz for each student.
  • Shuffle Questions: Any quiz can have quiz questions shuffled, even if there is no question pool. When questions are shuffled, every student gets the same set of questions, but the order of the questions presented will be different for each student.  Some quiz answer choices can also be shuffled to add additional variety to a quiz.
