Shuffle answers at the question level

Idea created by Thomas Broxholm on Jul 6, 2016
    This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas


    Canvas allows the possible answers of all the questions to be shuffled, which is a great option when we want to make our quizzes more secure and avoid that students pass the answers along. Nevertheless, sometimes there are questions in which the correct answer is, for example, A and C are correct or all of the above are correct. In these cases we can't use the shuffle option.


    I would like to see the ability to choose shuffling at the question level like I can in moodle.  Suppose I have 20 questions in a test and in 10 of them the answers should not be shuffled. The other 10 questions should have the answers shuffled.  The way Canvas is now this cannot be accomplished.

    This was brought up before but was closed.  I'm new to Canvas and being forced to switch from Moodle.
