Canvas not randomizing questions from created question groups.

Is anyone else finding a glich in the Canvas quizzing feature? I have tons of quizzes created for my students to take. They all draw from Question Groups that are linked to fairly large question banks. I discovered that, at some point after Wednesday last week, the quizzes were NOT pulling randomly from the question banks.


For each item/question, the quiz feature is just taking the FIRST question from the assigned bank. This means...1.) My students who took a quiz ALL got the same questions AND 2.) any student who made a second attempt got the EXACT same questions, in the same order, as on their first attempt. This also happens for me when I put the quiz in preview mode. Same questions EVERY time.


This is definitely a new problem for me. Previous quizzes had been fine, but now I don't know what to do. It appears ALL of the upcoming ones are doing this. HELP!
