Randomizing Quiz Questions

Random sections pull questions from a designated pool of questions. Questions must be imported into Random Sections from the Question Library. If you have no questions in the Question Library, they can be imported from existing quizzes or created there. You cannot create new questions within random section folders. See Using the Question Library for help with this.
