A Question Pool contains all
the questions you've made
in a survey/quiz and gives you the option
to only show
a certain number of
these questions to
the respondent. Each respondent
will therefore receive different questions
and experience the quiz/survey differently. This is a good way to assemble a lot of different information
while only using short surveys
with a high response rate

2.1 Question Pool out of all questions
When you want to select a certain number of questions
out of all your questions turn on Question Pool in Question Block 1
(your only Question Block). A number
will appear next to
Here you can select
the number of questions
out of all your questions you want to show
in your survey/quiz.
E.g.: Here I have 6 questions, and I've set the number next to the buttons to 3. So my survey/quiz will consist out of 3 questions, randomly chosen out of this Question Pool. Every time I open the quiz, I will see new questions.
2.2 Question pool out of a selection of questions
If you want several questions
to be fixed
in your survey, and others
be to selected
out of a Question Pool,
you are going to separate the fixed questions from the question pool questions by using
the Question Blocks.
The next steps will describe a situation in which you want your first data-collection question to be fixed, and the other questions to be randomly selected out of a Question Pool.Start by adding a new Question Block
on the green 'Add Question Block'-button
you want to have in your question pool
to the second block
on the 'Move to next block'-button
for each question
. If you have made a mistake and moved a question to many, you can put it
back by clicking
on the 'Move to previous block'-button.
All the questions
that you want to have fixed
are still in the first block
.Turn on Question Pool
in the second Question Block.
A number will appear next to the buttons. Here you can select the number of questions out of all your questions you want to show in your survey/quiz. Set the number of questions you want to appear in your survey/quiz.
If you also want to have questions fixed after your Question Pool: Make a third Question Block and move all the questions you want to have fixed after
the Question Pool
to the third block by clicking
on 'Move to next block'
