Remediation in Quizmaker

Mar 16, 2011

Normal 0 false false false oNotPromoteQF /> EN-US X-NONE X-NONE ontGrowAutofit /> MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 I want students to see a first set of questions (randomized) the first time they take a quiz.  If they fail (or if they just retake the quiz), I want them to see a different set of questions (randomized)  Can this be done?

Hi Donnis and welcome to Heroes,

When your quiz is set to randomized and the student retakes the quiz, the user will be presented with another set of randomized questions.  In my testing, I created a 3 question quiz, randomized it, and set it so that it pools 2 questions.  During the first attempt, it gave me question 2 and 3.  During the retry, it gave me question 3 and then 1.

Does that answer your question?

Thank you very much for your reply.

Do you think that Quizmaker is tracking which questions werepresented during the first try so that is knows which to present during thesecond try….or is it just luck?  The reason for my concern…this is aregulated course and for remediation purposes the student is suppose to see aseparate set of questions if they fail the first try.

Hi Donnis,

Quizmaker will randomize and repool the questions on every attempt.  I wouldn't call it luck, but there's probably a one in a million chance the end-user would see the same set of questions.  Even then, the questions would be completely randomized.  So, I think it's safe to say that your quiz will be satisfactory in regards to the requirements.
