Graduated Difficulty is a Smart Create feature that makes assessment items more challenging as the learner becomes familiar with them.
Learners can master a concept with fewer quizzes by making the quizzes more productive.
As a result, it also helps to engage learners by providing various question types without requiring the creation of additional materials.
Diagrams and some Q&A item types increase the difficulty as a learner progresses.
Example of a Q&A question type with Graduated Difficulty applied first with multiple choice:

Note: Graduated Difficulty is automatically turned on when creating a learning set or bulk uploading a CSV file. If you prefer to have it turned off you have the option to uncheck the box at the bottom of the page where you created the question.
Pro Tip: Leave the Graduated Difficulted box checked on all learning items, except for true or false questions.
