Thao Nghi Tu

Hi Megan,

I’m glad we were able to resolve this over email! I just wanted to summarize on here in case anyone following the forum has similar questions.

1) As long as the assessment Part is set to randomize each time an assessment is submitted, it should randomize and we confirmed this is working. A good idea is to include several questions in a Question Pool to avoid students seeing a lot of the same questions, even individual students with multiple attempts.

2) When editing a published assessment, the assessment will be retracted from student view, including those currently taking the exam. Depending on how long the exam is open, whether it’s timed, and other various scenarios, it may be best to just email the diagram to students instead of retracting the assessment from student view.

Feel free to send us a request on if you have questions about your specific assessment. Thanks!
