New! Randomize your survey and quiz questions

Krista Stevens

We’re pleased to announce a new feature for surveys and quizzes: now, with the click of a checkbox, you can randomize the questions on any page of a survey or quiz. This feature is particularly useful for scientific research, and helping students to review course content and prepare for exams. Here’s how it works.

First, you’ll want to create a survey, or create a quiz.

Once you’ve got your questions set up, you can check the checkbox next to Randomize the questions on this page, located in the top, right-hand corner of the survey / quiz question editor:

If you’d like to randomize all the questions in the survey or quiz, be sure to click on the Randomize the questions on this page checkbox at the top of each page of your survey or quiz.

Now, when participants attempt your quiz or take your survey, they’ll see the questions appear in a random order on each time.

Note that question randomization cannot be used with question branching/forking. Question branching sets a deliberate path through the survey based on criteria that you choose. Randomization shows the questions in a random order.
