When assigning a Simple Assessment, you have the option to randomize the order of the questions on the assessment.

When assigning an Advanced Assessment, you have the option to randomize the order of the items on the assessment. This setting does not randomize the questions within the items. It simply randomizes the order of the items themselves.

Things to note:

  • When teachers review Assessment Analytics, the order of the items will match the order in the assessment builder.

  • This setting does not randomize the answer choices.

  • Students are not made explicitly aware of the fact that questions are randomized. Unless the creator of the assessment manually numbered the questions, the student will have no indication of randomization of questions.
