    Hello Polaris. Please try it and see smile The main differences are the ability to add basic question types from the question bank and the simplicity of branching which is simple sequential so it doesn't have complex paths through it. Why not visit the demo page?

    I know what a coding error is wink did you find one I can fix? If you need random questions I suggest the quiz is what you are looking for. For me, random questions make no sense in the context of this activity but please feel free to discuss further, I'm not saying it can't be done if there is a good reason for it.
