Order Questions

The Order Questions feature allows you to change the order in which questions appear in your quiz, or within any section of your quiz.

By default, questions are displayed in the quiz in the order in which they were added to the quiz file. If you have multiple sections, YQuiz first arranges the sections in the order in which you created them, and then arranges the questions within each section. The simplest way to reorganize a quiz file with multiple sections is to first use Order Sections to place the sections into the order you want, and then use Order Questions to place the questions in each section into the order you want.

Note: If a section has been set up to assign questions to a student randomly, the order of the questions in the quiz file is irrelevant. Each student may see different questions in a different order.
