Dive into Dynamic and Static Quizzes for the right user experience when taking a quiz.

Deciding the most appropriate quiz format for your learners is an important part of designing your courses.

If you want to throw your users a pitch straight down the middle so that each user has the same quizzing experience, use static quizzes to provide answer types including true/false, multiple-choice, or short answer.

On the flip side, if you want to throw your users a curveball and ensure that each quiz a user takes is different, go with dynamic quizzes that utilize question banks to randomize the questions that are presented to learners.
