Say I created a question:
When the student took the test, the answers were randomized, e.g.,
When I extracted the results, I got a data string like
- answer_order: 0, 3, 4, 1, 2 (the order answers were displayed to the student); note: the ordinal position is 0.
- sequence of response_values (the actual selections)
- score_value: 0.0 (what the student auto-scored)
Does the sequence of response_values corresponded to the original order of answers in the question, or the order of answers displayed to the student?
It is corresponds to the original order of answers in the question.
The question had five answers
- 3 - position 0
- 4 - position 1
- 5 - position 2
- 6 - position 3
- 9 - position 4
The question was displayed to the student
The student selected a. 3, b. 6, c. 9
That corresponds to the sequence
