Any page where search criteria is present

Project Managers, Manage Reports, Observer,Search on multiple IDsPreviously, multiple criteria were needed to search on multiple IDs or users would often import a section.Users can now copy and paste a list of item IDs in the text box when searching on question IDs. Search is space delimited, can copy from word, excel or other external sources.Enhancement
Exam BlueprintProject ManagersRetire "Move Content To"The exam blueprint page previously gave users the ability to move items between blueprint nodes. This was redundant functionality as it is present on the batch edit page.Users can navigate to the search questions page, filter by criteria, and use the "Blueprint ID" selection to move items to a different blueprint area.Enhancement
Batch EditProject ManagersRetire "Search Labels"Previously, Project managers could add search labels via the Batch Edit page to questions so they could be returned via the "Has Label." This data was not stored anywhere within the application; it's only use was as an additional search criteria.This feature was redundant behavior in the system. Functioning similar to collections within the tool this was removed to trim complexity from the application.Enhancement
Write QuestionsItem WritersAbility to add additional constructed Response and specify toolbarsWhen authoring a Constructed Response / Oral question type previously you only had the ability to have one response area for candidates; you could also only specify the default toolbar or an enhanced tool bar.

Item Writers can now add additional response areas for candidates to a Constructed Response item with a text separator, reorder the areas or delete an area. Users also have the ability to specify the type of toolbar for each response area:

  • Edit Only
  • Advanced Toolbar
  • Style Only
  • Edit and Style
  • None

ReviewersReviewer Tab showing unauthorized projectsIn version 1712 a bug was introduced that allowed reviewers to see all projects in an itembank assuming they had access to at least one project as a reviewer. They did not have access to these projects if they did not have another role in them.This behavior has been corrected. Users are now only seeing projects that they have been given access to.
