Random question slides display questions that are randomly selected from a question pool to which they are linked. These slides help avoid quiz predictability. Random question slides do not have a Timeline of their own but use the timing of the question slide chosen at run time.
Random question slides cannot be exported into Flash 8 or Flash CS3.
Create question pools
Select the question slide in the Question pool panel and add the quiz content on stage. For more information, see Set up question slides.
Unlike the regular question slides, you cannot directly assign points or scores to the graded questions in question pools. You can assign the points to the random question slide using its Property Inspector.
Question pools cannot be exported as XML. However, in the Question Pool Manager, you can do the following using the right-click menu:
Drag questions across question pools.
Copy questions from one pool and paste them into other pools.
Lock, unlock, hide, and show questions.
You can copy, duplicate, or delete the question slides using the Question Pool panel.
You can move a question slide or a group of question slides to a question pool. The question slide is removed from the main project and placed in the question pool. Alternatively, you can move question slides from a question pool into the main project, or to other question pools.
Question pools do not support slide grouping, so all grouping information is lost when grouped slides are moved into pools. Consequently, when the question slides are moved back to the main project, they are not associated with any group.
To move question slides across multiple slide groups into a question pool, expand the group, select the question slides, and move them to the question pool.
You cannot undo the movement of question slides to question pools or to the main project.
When you import question pools, the associated Advanced Actions and Shared Actions are also imported.
