Replace Flash in Asset UploaderPreviously Flash was used to upload assets into ExamDeveloper.

With the retirement of the Flash component, we are working on replacing Flash dependencies throughout ExamDeveloper. Users can upload assets into Question Stems, Options, and Metadata, and upload assets into the Prepare Assets → Upload page.

From the Upload Assets page, click Upload Assets button. The Upload Files page opens where you can select files to upload.

From Question Stems, Options or Metadata, the Asset Manager feature opens the Attach Asset window. Click Upload Assets to open the Upload Assets page.

When you upload an image, you can select Display as Exhibit. This inserts a Click to Enlarge button on a Question which opens the asset in an exhibit window. You must select Display as exhibit before clicking Upload Files or the asset is uploaded as an inline asset.

The label was changed from Upload for to Submit on behalf of.

Review/Modify QuestionProject Managers,
Save, Finish Later, and Advance buttons on Review/Modify Question pageThe only option when modifying a question during review was to submit the question.

When modifying a question during the review process, there are two new buttons (Save and Finish Later), and Submit was renamed to Advance.

  • Save the changes and stays on the modify questions page.
  • Finish Later saves the changes, closes the Modify Questions page, and does not advance the question to the next review stage.
  • Advance saves the changes in the question and advances the question on to the next review stage.
