You can group questions into “pools,” which allows for even more variation from student to student. For example, you could group 5 similar questions, and each student is assigned 2 questions randomly selected from that pool.

  1. Click on an activity to open the activity editor.
  2. Click on a question to select it, or Ctrl+click to select multiple questions. With one or more questions selected, click the folder icon.

    The folder icon has a tool tip on mouseover of "Create Question Pool with Selected Items(s)".

  3. Shading now appears around the question(s). Additional questions can be dragged into or out of the shaded region.

  4. Additional options are available at the top of the question pool. 
  • Collapse the pool using the green triangle.
  • Edit the number of assigned questions using the Assign menu.
  • Unpool the questions.
  • Delete the pool and its questions.
