Writing two versions of an exam and randomly assigning them.

Community Explorer

If I write two versions of an exam, not using question banks and groups, just having V1 and V2, is it possible to randomly assign them to the class?    I can create a group and assign V1 to group 1, but is there another way? 

If I put a student in a group, does the student know they are in that group?   Thank you.
