In DOCS create a folder with these 10 questions, on the folder set
'Randomly Pick' to 5
!- cannot use this with bubble sheet exams

For both of these. The good solution doesn't yet exist. (Marking a
sequence as 'randomly ordered') but has a design. Implmentation will
be a bit tricky.
The paritial solution of make a container.problem that loads in
.library files that contain the problems works, but has the draw back
that you can't use any old problem in the network.

PPRM -> 'Question Type' set it to 'practice'
- Questions will no longer be considered gradable objects
(they won't appear in CHRT, STAT or SPRS)
- students will get the 'New Problem Variation' button
- interactions with the resource are logged into the activity.log but
not stored with the problem, (PGRD won't show any submissions)
