Random Order of Questions

Hello!  I need to create a test in which the same collections of questions are asked, but in a randomized order.  I see a potential path to use by creating a random question linked to a pool of questions attached to that slide, however I need to be sure that all of the questions appear in the test.  I have two questions:

First, if this is indeed the path I need to take, will questions selected from a pool be displayed again if the same pool is used (I suspect this is a strong possibility)?

Secondly, is there an easier way to have the questions simply appear in a random order?

Thank you!

Easiest way would be indeed to have a question pool with exactly the number of questions you want to ask, and insert the same number of random questions. BTW you can also shuffle answers in most types of questions.

However: if you allow multiple attempts on quiz level, learner will get the same order in the next attempts. Randomization will only happen again when course is left an re-entered.

I have a similar requirement in a course, where randomisation of questions should happen when every time when a learner retake the assessment without exiting the course. Is it possible to make this happen?

Please, do not ask the same question twice. Did you read my answer here? Same answer is posted in your thread as well.
