QTI Export/Export item revisionProject Managers,
QTI Export Packages
Revision code mismatch when exporting a published exam

When the following criteria were met an exam did not compile because the exported revision codes in the source files were inconsistent:

  1. Exam and Sections must be published
  2. Changes to the items occurred after publication

When exams were exported after item level changes (causing a new revision to be created) the section source file exported contained the latest revision code of the item rather than the revision code present at the time of exam publication.

This has been corrected to ensure that the proper revision id is exported in the itempool and the section file so that the exam compiles appropriately.Fix
Batch Edit/Batch Edit MetadataProject ManagersBatch edit allows multiple values for drop-down metadataWhen users batch edited items to update a singular metadata value for Drop-down items the system added the newly specified value on top of the existing value rather than replace it.This has been resolved so that the selected value via batch edit overwrites the existing value so that the one correct value is present on the item.Fix
Examine Questions/Modify Case textProject ManagersUnable to update case text from case questionAfter searching for a question belonging to a case users were unable to modify the case text from a question belonging to a case.This has been addressed so that users can now modify case text from a question belonging to a particular case.Fix
Modify Questions/Modifying a Point and Click itemProject Managers,
Hot Area items listed as Hot Spot items when modifyingFor Point and Click items having a response type of "Hot Area" selected when a user opened this item for modification, the system was setting the default response type selection to "Hot Spot" rather than retain "Hot Area." There was a risk in saving the incorrect response type after making item modifications.The system has been corrected to retain the proper response type selected for the point and click item.Fix
Custom Report/XML custom reportProject ManagersXML custom report contains incorrect tag and attribute

When users ran a custom report with the XML output there were two xml tags that had changed unintentionally:

<QuestionRevision_Collection> became <Id_Collection>


<QuestionRevision QuestionRevision= became <Id QuestionRevision=

The previous XML convention has been restored.Fix
