Quizzes - Shuffle the order of questions
To discourage cheating in quizzes, instructors can shuffle the order of all questions in quizzes or specific groups of questions (sections) in quizzes. For example, an instructor could shuffle questions 1-10 in a quiz, or shuffle questions 3-10 (grouping those questions into a section) and retain the order of questions 1-2 at the start of the quiz.
When editing a quiz in the Quizzes tool, an option to Shuffle order of questions at the quiz level displays in the Quiz Questions section. When creating a new section to group specific questions in a quiz, a new option to Shuffle order of questions in this section is visible in the Display Options section.

Once the shuffle option is selected, a shuffle icon appears next to each affected question in the quiz.

Instructors can also use question pools in a quiz to establish a large pool of questions and then have a smaller number of questions drawn from the pool display in the quiz. Question pools are, by their nature, effectively shuffled as well.
