Random selection of questions from a question pool
 

Dear,

How can I make the quiz module select random questions form a given question pool..?

i.e, Suppose I have 200 questions on my qustion pool and a test has 50 questions.. How can I make sure that the student gets 50 questions at random from 200 predefined questions..? Please some one help me out...

Thanks in advance

Dear helen,

The problem is not that.. Suppose I have uploaded 100 questions onto my quiz..

If an user attempts the quiz he should see only 50 questions, and the next time adifferent 50 questions.. And so on.. That is the system should be able to give the student questions which are not familiar to him from his previous attempt..

Can You suggest me how to do this. Please help me.

Thanks a lot

Sai

Dear Tim,

At present if I upload 50 questions into my quiz using add random questions, A student gets 50 questions as his test, another student too gets the same 50 questions but in adifferent order.. What I need is the system should give him altogether a different set of questions and not the same 50 in different order..

Making this will enhance the quality of my tests.. Is there a way to do this. Please guide me a solution.

Thanks a lot..

Hi

The second student will get a "different" set of questions. How different depends on the number of questions you are selecting from. If you are getting 50 questions from a pool of 1000, then most questions between the two tests will differ. If you are getting 50 from a pool of 100 then a lot of questions will be the same. The system does not keep track of the questions already used in a different test. This is just as well as for lots of students you would quickly run out of questions!

If you have 2 students getting a lot of the same questions then you probably don't have enough questions to choose from.

regards

Paul

Hi Victorin,
Check Quiz settings, Adding/updating a quiz under display settings, turn off shuffle questions.

Tip: in the question title, start each question with the question order number. Probably a good habit to use 001 for your first, 002 for the second. When questions display in a list for the teacher to select, the question title is the sort value.

Most of my teachers want a fixed number of questions in a question category and select all of them. We like to see the start of the question in the title. After or before a quiz, I use the title trick to call attention to questions in a category by placing a number or a ZZ at the front. For example: "1 added check The cow jumped over" or "ZZ remove 2010-3 Why did the Moodler cross" .

These are codes for actions. If somebody forgets to "remove" (ie move) the question, the ZZ puts it at the bottom of the list and it stands out. Hopefully Mr. Collman will not use it when he compiles the next quiz smile
