Complete noob here having just completed the Virtual training from Adobe 🙂
I am currently creatinga quiz using multiple Question Pools but i am seeing duplicate questions from a same pool.
I have a pool of 16 matching questions
I set up my quiz to have 6 randomised slides
But i can get 4 uniques and get one uplicated to two slides..
Is this a normal thing??
if so then does this not make Question Pools and Randomising Questions pointless as someone could in theory get the same quest 6 times!
Any direction would be great 🙂
When you created these 16 question slides, did you happen to use Duplicate to create new ones instead of starting each one from scratch?
If so, check each question assigned in your Question Pools to see if perhaps you have the same question in more than one Pool.
I did start each question slide as a new one in the question pool by 'clicking' the + to add a new one.
The reason I set up pools was to seperate out different question types so i know i haven't duplicated questions.
But when you say Duplicate do you mean in the main quiz slide view?
If so no i didn't do that either 😞

That normally never happens, unless you have less quiz slides in the pool than the number of random slides you inserted in the project.
Avoid duplication or copy/paste for quiz slides, even in a question pool. Do not duplicate random slides neither. In a basic training I always recommend to split up formatting from content for quiz slides (whether in a pool or not) using:
Random quiz slides have some limitations. I tried to bundle them in a blog post:
Thank you for the response 🙂
Funnily emough i justed utilised one of you blogs for pass/fail audio playing so thank you for that little gem 🙂
I also came across your post last night that you have linked to..
This made me go back and start again as your advice was great and enlightening.
I will keep my post open as not solved until i complete the rework of my quiz 🙂
again thanks for responding
Gary, thanks for appreciating some blogs, most users only look at videos nowadays.
I really want to know what caused the issues you described, Quizzes are one of the main topics on my blog, always eager to learn more.
it was as you said a combination of new user and duplicating.
I actual followed you direction a used gift expoert/imports and that has cured the issue.
Thank you for the support 🙂
Of to create another post now lol
Glad it has been solved!
If you want more reading stuff, this blog has a pdf with links to most of my quizzing blog posts:
It is from december 2020, maybe I'll need to update it again.
