One of the most important features of the current quiz engine in Canvas is the ability to grab a certain number of questions randomly. You can either put questions in the group or use a question bank like so:

There appears to be no such feature for Quizzes.next and this is disappointing. We use this feature all of the time at our institution. It really is a better way to test students making it so they do not all have the same test questions. It also can provide important formative assessment since we can allow students to take the quiz several times and receive different questions each time and they can use the quiz to study. I hope this is on the road map but, if not I would suggest it.
