I have been looking at the Random Number generator tool on the CL and was hoping to use it in a specific way. Is it possible to distribute the integers 1 - 24 to a class of 24 randomly so that each student has a unique value?
This would open the door to a lot of opportunities in my stats class of assigning a specific number of treatment types across the class.
I know, in a graph (which you could hide), you can take a list (1-24) and shuffle it.
Then, (I’m not certain), have an action button for students to click (it can be any button that may also have another use on the same or previous slide). Make a list that aggregates any number (so you could use a button that aggregates something else and use that list). Also, have the button
capture the length of the aggregated list. Then use that as the index for the shuffled list. They should each get a different length (the order in which students pressed the button), but I don’t know if some lag might give students the same value. You’ll also want to disable the button once it’s pressed.
