    Asked on January 29, 2018 at 07:13 AM

    Good afternoon,

    We would like to know if it was possible to generate questionnaires as follows:

    DB divided by 3 modules with 100 questions

    Generate inquiries with different questions that are randomly taken from these 3 modules. That is, with 4 questions from each module in a total of 12 questions.

    Is this possible through jotform?

    Thank you,

    Boa tarde,

    Nos gostaríamos de saber se era possível gerar questionários da seguinte forma:

    BD dividida por 3 módulos com 100 perguntas

    Gerar inquéritos com questões diferentes que sejam retiradas aleatoriamente desses 3 módulo. Ou seja, com 4 questões de cada módulo num total de 12 perguntas.

    Isto é possível através do jotform?

    Muito obrigada,

    I'm not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    You want some of the field questions to be shown randomly out of the field questions you created in your form? I'm afraid this isn't possible.

    A workaround is to create all field questions in your form then use the Shuffle widget to randomly changed their positions everytime you open the form.

    If I have misunderstood your question, please let us know.

    What we want is to have a pool with 100 questions that will generate us 12-question questionnaires. That is, of these 100 questions are chosen 12 randomly.

    Is this possible?

    No, it's not possible. I also could not find any possible workaround other than the one I previously mentioned but it's not possible to take 12 questions randomly from 100. You can only shuffle them all.
