When does this happen?Outcome

Generate QTI package > export

Project ManagerInclude items from delivery template item bank. Will now be able to break up question review into multiple review forms (split by question count).

Create Exam Form -> Generate QTI package -> Export) and change my export options to:

  • Generate question review form
  • And I select 'Include items in delivery template item bank in review form'
Items are included from the delivery template item bank and able to have multiple review forms, split by question count.Enhancement
Generate QTI package > ExportProject ManagerEnable review form exportAble to generate a basic form containing all the questions on my exam in question ID order, so I can quickly review the content against the original source material that got imported. When exporting select the "Generate question review form" for export options.

A question review form is generated when exporting.

  • An xml file named Review.xml
  • This file should contain references to all the questions used anywhere on any of the exam forms being generated
    • This may include Question ID and/or External ID references 
    • This should not include references to any items that are not in this project (i.e. are in the delivery template item bank)
    • If a Question ID appears multiple times (because it is on more than one form, or because items on multiple sections is enabled), only the first occurrence of the item should be referenced (i.e. there should be no duplicate questions on the Review form).
    • The questions should be ordered by Question ID ascending, regardless of what form they appear on
  • A reference to Review.xml in the Compile project (.cpf) file, so that I can compile a dat containing the review
Enhancement
Generate QTI package > ExportProject ManagerSplit review forms by question countWhen exporting select the "Generate question review form" and the "Divide into <input> questions per review form". The <input> field can be up to 4 numeric characters (0-9)
  • A form is generated for every <x> questions set in my project configuration
  • The following areas of the resulting file should should be named "Review_Q<QuestionRange>" where <QuestionRange> is the question range included in the chunk I've specified:
    • Filename
    • Assessment ident
    • Section ident
    • e,g, If I have 20 questions in a chunk, and 50 questions in the exam, then:
      • My first file and assessment ident should be named "Review_Q1-20" and my section ident should be "ReviewItems_Q1-20"
      • My second file and assessment ident should be named "Review_Q20-39" and my section ident should be "ReviewItems_Q20-39"
      • My final file and assessment ident should be named "Review_Q40-50" and my section ident should be "ReviewItems_Q40-50" (It may be that the last file contains less than the chunk count, this remainder is fine)
  • There should be references to each Review.xml file exported in the Compile project (.cpf) file, so that I can compile a dat containing the review
