There may be any number of metadata created for a project. Within ExamDeveloper, there are 7 types: multiple entry text, multi-select list, single-line text, block text, drop-down list, and check box as configured by the Project Manager. All of the metadata are displayed in one tab and in their respective fields with the metadata contents.
- Metadata allows you to group items by subject area. You can select multiple categories.
- The Project Manager creates Metadata lists and assigns the types to the metadata. Metadata allows you to add new contents if your project allows it, and it can be made mandatory or made available only to the Project Manager.
- Metadata can be categorized in items and assets, individually or as a group.
You can add a new item for the various types of metadata from the Write Question page:
Add New Contents
Multiple entry text
Enter the content in the Add new field and click Add. This allows for one or more single-line text entries to be added for a given item or asset. This is the default type of metadata if no other type is selected.
Enter the content in the field provided. For this type, you can add only one line of content to the item or asset.
Enter the content in the block field provided. This type allows for one entire block of text or HTML to be entered. This type also supports assets and hyperlinks being attached within the metadata field. This metadata type uses a Rich Text editor interface and thus is the only metadata type that allows attaching assets and hyperlinks.
Enter the content in the Add new field and click Add. This creates a fixed list of items from which the user can choose one or more values to assign to the item or asset.
Enter the content in the Add new field and click Add. This creates a drop-down list of items. The user can choose only one value to assign to the item or asset.
Selection check boxes. This produces one or more values with check boxes next to them. The user can select (or deselect) each value.
