      Description

      I want to provide students with random descriptions in a quiz
      An easy way would be to handle the list of descriptions like questions.

      But the system distinguish between questions and descriptions, and this feels like an inconsistency or a bug.

      For some course design it might be helpful to provide random descriptions, to make repeating a quiz interesting or hinder participants from unwanted cooperation.

      Please do not distinguish between questions and descriptions for random questions.

      in 2.0.2 it says: This random question is not in use, since its category is empty.
      Add questions to the category
      even if it contains a number of descriptions.
