I want to be able to create a test where, for example, questions 1 through 20 are shuffled. Question 21 asks "What essay do you want to answer?" and then branches to one of several essay questions.
I tried doing shuffling for questions 1-20 and locking questions 21-24 (the prompt and the essays), but when I turn on branching the shuffling goes away.
Seems like it would be an easy fix to allow shuffling for parts of a form/quiz but locking any questions that involve branching in place.
It's by design that the shuffling settings will be disabled when you use branching in your form.
