My students made 15 questions so I used excel and generated the list of combinations. There is really 75 questions since there are 15 per grade for K-5. I am just going to print out the three choices and make 15 stars to select the question for each grade and each star goes to a different question. Thanks again.

Oh, there is a shuffling procedure here:


I adapted it to what I think are your needs.

the procedure "use.first.in.text2" takes the first line of text in the text box text2 and runs it (supposing that that first line is the name of a procedure).

I think you can even hide those text boxes, or place them in a different page.
