The difference between Random Blocks and Question Sets

These two features are very similar but have important differences. It is generally considered that they both exist due to the convergence of Blackboard 8 and Web CT. Multiple Random Blocks or Question Sets can be added to a single test.

Random Blocks

These are created by selecting a pool and/or other test and choosing the number of questions that the test randomly selects from to ask students.

Question Sets

This is a more granular version of Random blocks where you can select specific questions from pools and/or other tests that the test randomly selects from to display to students.
