One feature in D2L under Quizzes is the Randomization Checkbox. This feature allows you to randomize the question order of a new or previously built quiz very quickly. By selecting the Shuffle questions at the quiz level checkbox in the quiz properties, the order of all questions not contained in a Section in that quiz will be randomized. By selecting the Shuffle questions in this section checkbox when editing a Section, the order of all questions in that section will be randomized. Randomizing question order helps to maintain academic integrity on quizzes and exams.
