Get random list of 8 elements from pre-defined list of 25 elements

I have a list of 25 elements which is already defined in a previous question (name it list25). In a new question I would like to ask for 8 random elements from that pre-defined list (list25) how they scale from 1 to 5 (each element apart).
So my question is: How can I randomly select 8 elements from that list of 25 elements and use that list of 8 elements in a new (grid) question?

In the List Manager, you can create a new constructed list with list25 as its parent.  Then you can give the constructed list these instructions:

Add(list25)
Randomize()
SetListLength(8)


Then all you have to do is go into your grid question settings and set the rows list to this constructed list.
