Creating a Question Pool

    Creating Question Pools
  • Question Pools allow instructors to give students a set number of questions randomly selected from a larger pool of question. For Example, a 25 question quiz could be comprised of questions pulled at random from a pool of 50 questions. Each student would get a unique set of questions.
  • Multiple question pools can be created within a single quiz to allow pools to be created based on course topics, chapters, student learning outcome, etc.
