Our Question Pool feature allows you to create an interaction using a set number of questions randomly selected from a larger pool of items. In other words, every time a participant goes through the interaction, they will receive randomly selected questions.

This is especially useful for scored assessments that allow retakes, as it can present fresh content, rather than showing the quiz-taker the same questions over and over. 

Question Pool functionality is available for Surveys, Scored Quizzes, and Outcome Quizzes. 

To enable the Question Pool feature, go to the Edit tab of your assessment and navigate to the Section. Click on the "Edit" icon. In the section settings, you will find the option to enable the Question Pool. Check the corresponding box and select the number of questions you want to present to your end users from the available pool. For instance, if you have a pool of 16 questions, you can choose to present only four in the actual quiz. If your assessment has multiple sections, repeat this process for each section that requires a Question Pool. You can also have one section that uses a Question Pool and additional section(s) that do not. 


If you use the Question Pool for Scored Quizzes, we recommend using the same point value for every question in the pool, as questions with differing point values may lead to inconsistent scoring.


The Results Report displays only the questions that were seen by each participant. In the example below, the first participant saw Q1, Q3, Q5 and Q8. The blank spaces in Q2, Q4, Q6, etc. show that the questions weren’t assigned to that participant.
