Composite question order

Follow
Answered
Bruce Sharp

Can you add an option to composite questions to maintain question order when the assessment is set to randomize? For example a composite question may be 2 questions based on a diagram. The students have to find the answer to question 1.1 before they can find 1.2 so the order needs to be fixed. The composite may only be 1 question in a 20 question assessment though. If I set the 20 questions to randomize, Buzz will also randomize the subquestions within the composite.

Hey Bruce, you can have the questions in a composite question maintain their order. 

It would look like this.

Type: Composite
Options: MaintainOrder
1) Composite question

Type: MC
1.1) First composite question
a. a
*b. b

Type: MC
1.2) Second composite question
a. a
*b. b

Type: MC
1.3) Third composite question
a. a
*b. b

Type: MC
1.4) Fourth composite question
a. a
*b. b

Ok. Thanks. I thought Option: MaintainOrder was only used to keep answer choices in order. I didn't realize it also applied to composite questions.

Hi Brad,

I've got several questions within an assessment that need to be grouped together, but I want the rest of the assessment to be randomized. For example, here is the two questions that I need to appear together.

Composite questions don't exist anymore in the new Buzz editor. Here's something to think about until someone from Agilix gets back to you.

You might be able to write these as a passage question. Your reference tables could be the passage with the questions linked to the passage. They would all stay grouped together, but I'm not sure if you could keep them in order. Try it and preview to see what happens.

Thank you Bruce! I will check it out.

Robyn,

Bruce is correct that the passage question type would be best suited to ensure these questions remain next to each other. There is not currently a way to force a question remain at a certain position when questions are randomized (for example you cannot guarantee Q1 will remain Q1), but linked passage questions will stay grouped together.
