Randomize Quiz Questions

  1. Imaginate

    I see that we can randomize the quiz answers (which is great), but is it possible to randomize the quiz questions?

    My client would like the quiz questions randomized so that users can't tell other users that "question 2 answer is B". That way every quiz questions order is a little different.

    Another great feature to add would be the ability to have a pool of questions (like 50), then only pull a random 10 out of that. So each quiz become very different for each user.

  2. If the answers are randomized, one user telling another "question 2 answer is B" would not be useful, would it?

    I will bring your suggestions to the attention of the development team.

    True, but randomizing the questions seems to be a popular request for most organizations I work with that do any sort of learning management. It'd be great if this was an option.

  4. Imaginate,
    I'm with you. It would be great to have a pool of questions to pull from.

    In addition, it would be great to have the option to add an "average respondent score" (average of all users taking this particular quiz scored...)?

    Chris Hajer,
    As a side note, the Quiz plugin is freakin' awesome and JUST what I've been waiting for! This alone is worth the price of renewal. Nice work!

  5. Thanks for the feedback. I will pass it on to the developer of the quiz add-on.

  6. This is something that we have discussed internally and is something that we are considering adding as a feature down the road.

    It's much more complicated than it sounds due to the fact a form can consist of more than just Quiz Fields and you wouldn't want to randomize the non-Quiz Fields. Which means you makes the randomization output much more complex due to the fact you may have non-Quiz Fields that appears first... then some Quiz Fields... and then some more non-Quiz Fields.

    Not only that but technically you could have Quiz Fields and non-Quiz Fields completely mixed up as far as presentation order goes.

    But it is something we have already discussed internally as I mentioned above, it's just a matter of finding both an efficient way to do it from a code execution standpoint and an intuitive way to introduce it as a setting in the Quiz Settings so that users fully understand how it will work.

    If we're able to implement it, it won't be until sometime later in the year. We are currently working on introducing aggregate results display for the Quiz Add-On so that you can see quiz results with charts, graphs, etc. in the admin. That will be part of an updated beta that will be released later this month.
