Tests built from random subsets of a question bank

Follow

I would like to use a random set of questions from a larger question bank to create a quiz where each attempt of the quiz produces a unique set of questions.
e.g. 10 questions in the question bank, 5 questions random questions on the quiz. Therefore if a student can take a quiz twice, they have some of the same and some different questions on each attempt.

    Yes, this would be extremely useful for a mastery based class.

    Yes! We can create a test from a bank of questions, but once created it is static for all students... having a slightly different set of questions for each student (in addition to rearranging the order) would be a nice feature.

    This would be very helpful to prevent cheating, since each student would have a different group of questions.

    This would be very useful! Having the computer choose random items but having all the quizzes the same is next to useless. That's not what one has in mind for "questions chosen randomly from a question bank".

    yes, this feature would be extremely useful. Drawing from a large "pool" of questions is crucial, especially with online courses.

    Also the ability to import "test banks" from publishers for this very purpose would be really great.

    @Melanie: You CAN import from other tools (we use ExamView) if they can export in BlackBoard or Edmastery format. The trick is to "Import a Quiz" and then add the questions to a question bank for re-use in a Schoology Quiz.

    YES please! I have an end of course exam for my class and it would be great to upload a ton of questions from practice tests then randomly choose a certain number of those questions each time we took a practice test.

    We need this to help prevent cheating too.
