Oct 30 '17 at 14:54 comment added Stella Biderman @scaaahu Again, I am not saying that Hans's position is wrong, merely that his original justification for it on the grounds that the test should contain the same questions for every student is wrong. I agree with the answer and general and upvoted it after he reworded it.
Oct 30 '17 at 14:52 comment added Nobody @StellaBiderman Please note that the OP is saying "to have an extra question for specific students in the class.".
Oct 30 '17 at 14:48 comment added Hans Hüttel I am of course of the opinion that the questions should be essentially the same; indeed, trivial variations of parameters and re-ordering of questions can be simple and useful safeguards against cheating, and I have indeed used these measures in my own teaching. In the case of an oral exam, we of course cannot ask the exact same questions to each and every student, but we can and should ask essentially the same questions.

I have tried to clarify what I mean by "the same questions".
Oct 30 '17 at 14:43 comment added Hans Hüttel The questions in the setting that you mention were randomly generated and of the same level of difficulty; this is not a problem. However, here we speaking of different questions having another level of difficulty aimed at specific students.
