individualised quiz question

Hi, I am new to Canvas and am especially interested in creating quizzes. A typical barrier in many platforms is that the questions in a quiz can't be individualised, so I wondered if the following is possible in Canvas.


Say, I want to ask a (silly example) question: I ask a simple sum of 3 numbers to a student: 1 + 2 + 3. Then the outcome is 6.


As I have many students in my class, I do not like to ask the same question over and over again (they will remember it is 6). So I could add many similar questions, asking each time for a different sum: 1+2+3, 1+2+5, 1+2+7, 1+2+9, etc.


Now that is quite burdensome, and a waste of time. I wonder whether it is possible to ask instead one generic sum question in the following way: 1+2+a, where the 'a' will vary for each student. Is that possible? Many thanks.
