Duplicate Randomised Questions from a pool of questions

HI All
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.
Scenario 
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 🙂

Gary

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:

  • GIFT or CSV import for the content
  • Editing the Quiz object styles and the quizzing master slides for the formatting

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.

Hi @RodWard 
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 😞

Random quiz slides have some limitations. I tried to bundle them in a blog post:

Hi @Lilybiri

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:

Quiz Resources - eLearning (adobe.com)

It is from december 2020, maybe I'll need to update it again.
