How are tasks of equal priority scheduled?

Round robin - Ready state tasks that share a priority "take turns" to run.



How are tasks that share the idle priority scheduled?

As per tasks that share any other priority. However, the configIDLE_SHOULD_YIELD configuration constant can be used to force the idle task to yield after a single iteration of its loop if other idle priority application tasks are able to run.
