How Do I Reorder Questions or Question Groups in a Quiz?

You can move quiz questions or groups after you've created them. You can manually drag and drop the question or group, or you can use the Move option, which is also accessible for keyboard users.

You can also reorder questions within a question group. However, please note that quiz ordering inside a question group is only a quiz management tool for instructors. Your students will always see questions from a group in a random order.

Note: To help identify quiz questions in the Move dialog menu, make sure each quiz question or group has a specific name.
