Please be sure to review the Known Issues page to see a list of any continuing defects seen in the application HERE.
|When does this happen?||Outcome|
|Exam Forms/Exam Name||Project Managers,|
|Remove Edit as a group, modify Exam rename||In previous version clicking on the edit icon next to the exam name brought you to the Exam Group Page where you could modify multiple forms and modify the exam name.||The Edit as a group page has been removed. Clicking on the edit button for the exam now allows you to only modify the exam name.||Update|
|QTI Configuration/Export Revision Codes||Project Managers,|
QTI edit packages
|Add ability to export revision in ItemID.RevisionID convention||System allows users to export revision codes appended to item IDs with an underscore r a period appendage as well as exporting as an item version attribute.||Users now have the ability to export the revision code and append to the ID with a period delimiter or an underscore: |
ItemID.RevisionID i.e., 32481.1 or
ItemID_RevisionID, i.e., 32481_1
|Review Questions, Examine Questions/Edit Statistics||Project Managers,|
|Remove ability to modify item statistics||Prior to 1808 Project managers and item reviewers had the ability to modify item and response level statistics. They have also had the ability to change default (bench) stats.||Individual statistics modification has been removed from the system. Users must now import a new analysis set if they wish to update statistics on specific items||Update|
|Item Bank Configuration/Languages||Item Bank Administrators||Add several EU official languages||When configuring the Item Bank, users are allowed to select various languages used for their item bank.||There have been seven EU official languages added to the system. This includes: Croatian, Finnish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian.||Enhancement|
|Add Content/Add, Search Collections to projects||Item Bank Administrators||Search functionality added when viewing/adding sections on projects||In past versions users were provided available collections in a blanket list and had to navigate the list and pages to find the relevant collection(s) to remove, or share.||Search functionality has been added when viewing collections in a project or attempting to add collections to a project. Three criteria have been added: Collection Name, Created By (who created the collection), and Editable on.||Enhancement|
|QTI Export/Export item revision||Project 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:
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 Metadata||Project Managers||Batch edit allows multiple values for drop-down metadata||When 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 text||Project Managers||Unable to update case text from case question||After 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 item||Project Managers,|
|Hot Area items listed as Hot Spot items when modifying||For 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 report||Project Managers||XML 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|
|Create Exam Form/View Exam||Project Managers,|
|Enhanced DOCX Export functionality||Only Display types could be exported previously.|
True DOCX files are created, the content is no longer in tables.
Display type items alignment, indentation, bulleted lists, numbered lists, fonts, font size, font colors, headers, table content, special characters, MathML and Assets (in jpeg format) are all exported into the docx accurately.
The following items now export to DOCX: Constructed Response / Oral, MCQ (One Correct Option), MCQ (Multiple Correct Options), Pull Down List, Fill in the blank, Point and Click, Enhanced Matching, and Compound.
Exam Key & Metadata can be included, you can now group Exhibits before questions in the report, and you can export exam forms consisting of cases.
|Manage Reports/Custom Report tab||Project Managers,|
|Include Cases in JSON reports||Case content was not available in the JSON report.||The JSON custom report can now include case information.||Enhancement|
