Questions Sets with Order Retained

    Professor wanted a set of questions about X, another set of Y, and a set of Z but he wanted them to be randomized so first student gets X-Y-Z, the second gets Y-X-Z, the third gets Z-Y-X, etc.  For example:

     

    Student 1

    Student 2

    Student 3

    Set X Q1

    Set Y Q1

    Set Z Q1

    Set X Q2

    Set Y Q2

    Set Z Q2

    Set X Q3

    Set Y Q3

    Set Z Q3

    Set Y Q1

    Set X Q1

    Set Y Q1

    Set Y Q2

    Set X Q2

    Set Y Q2

    Set Y Q3

    Set X Q3

    Set Y Q3

    Set Z Q1

    Set Z Q1

    Set X Q1

    Set Z Q2

    Set Z Q2

    Set X Q2

    Set Z Q3

    Set Z Q3

    Set X Q3

     

    We set up separate pools for X, Y and Z and then created a test using Questions Set and randomized the question order for the test overall.  It randomized the X-Y-Z, Y-X-Z, Z-Y-X as expected AND it also randomized within the sets:

     

    Student 1

    Student 2

    Student 3

    Set X Q2

    Set Y Q3

    Set Z Q1

    Set X Q3

    Set Y Q2

    Set Z Q3

    Set X Q1

    Set Y Q1

    Set Z Q2

    Set Y Q1

    Set X Q2

    Set Y Q1

    Set Y Q2

    Set X Q3

    Set Y Q2

    Set Y Q3

    Set X Q1

    Set Y Q3

    Set Z Q3

    Set Z Q1

    Set X Q2

    Set Z Q2

    Set Z Q2

    Set X Q3

    Set Z Q1

    Set Z Q3

    Set X Q1

     

    I'm sure this is considered Functioning As Designed and it's helpful for most situations but in this case the order within the sets mattered so close but no cigar for him.  I even tried using separate tests rather than pools to see if the order was retained but it wasn’t.
