6.14 Overview of Algorithmic Question Capabilities

Algorithmic question generation allows you to write questions in which specified variables are assigned random values (according to defined ranges and conditions) each time the question is reused in an assignment. Using algorithmically generated variables within questions allows you to generate multiple question permutations from the same question stem. Thus, you can write a single stem or template question that can be reused. The numbers and wording change to use new randomly determined values in different assignment attempts (by the same student or different students).

The system allows you to create variables that use mathematical/logical arguments to generate random numbers in questions (where the data used in a question is determined by random selection from an entire scenario's data and the variables are based on lists), or to use a combination of mathematical/logical and list-based variables to produce a randomized question.
