How do I randomize the order of the questions on my quiz?
You can use Question Groups to randomize the order of the questions on your quizzes.
Note: If you need your questions to appear in a specific order, you should add or find individual questions instead of creating a question group.
Create Question Banks
Add Quiz Name and Instructions
Edit Quiz Settings
Create a New Question Group
Enter Question Group Details
Give your Question Group a name .
Choose how many questions you would like Canvas to randomly select from your Question Bank for this Question Group. If you want all the questions from your Question Bank to appear, enter the total number of questions in your Question Bank .
Choose how many points each question is worth in this Question Group .
Note: You can also randomize the order of questions on your quiz by linking to a question bank. However, questions that are linked to a question bank cannot be regraded.
