Question bank - Questions marked to always be included, are always positioned at start of question draw
Jun 18, 2019
For a project we created a question bank (150+ questions). We would like to have a random question draw of around 100 questions. We want to make sure that some of our questions are always included (in a random order), so we marked those questions to always be included in our question bank.
When we preview the question bank, the questions that are set to "always be included", are always the first couple of questions in the question draw. Even though the question bank is set to do a random draw. Is there any way to solve this issue? We are using Storyline 360.
Locking the question to another question doesn't seem to be an option, because the lock functionality doesn't work if one question is set to be included randomly and the other to always be included. If I change both to always be included, I get the same issue as before: the start of the question draw is always the same.
Because I can't share our project, I created a basic sample to show the issue. It's attached to this post. In this example, I have 5 questions in a question bank. I made a draw of 3 random questions, where question 3 is always included. As you can see: the draw will always start with question 3. If I set questions 3 and 5 to always be included, the question bank will always start with 3, followed by 5. It seems like the question draw will first combine all questions that are set to always be included, and then make a random draw based on the number of questions that are left for that draw.
