The export begins when you click the Ok button. A progress indicator circular animation is shown while the QTI Export is generating. The progress status in the form of percentage completed is also displayed below this.
This may not be visible for smaller Exams because the QTI Export may happen very quickly, but it provides a good measure of the progress of the process for large Exam Forms. Earlier versions of ExamDeveloper had no such progress indicator for QTI Export.Image Removed

For Section nodes:

For ExamForm nodes
ExamForm nodes (Assessment nodes) idents with # and $ also exhibit a similar behavior as Section nodes.
Under PearsonvuePrecondition (under ExamForm/Section nodes)
The $ and # replacement also happens on the following nodes LinkRefID attributes:
Variable Comparison (VARIABLE_COMPARISON)
Response Comparison (RESPONSE_COMPARISON)
Item State (ITEM_STATE)
The behavior is also seen for PearsonvueApplication - Calculator.
When an “&” (ampersand) symbol is used in a Question Stem or Answer Option, it is first carried to the “Itempool.xml” file.
Therefore, a Question with a Stem having an “&” symbol as below,
will have a Stem entry in the “Itempool.xml” file as below,
where the “&” is replaced by “&”, which is correct per HTML notation.
However, if the “Itempool.xml” is manually edited to change this entry to “&”, which is not its correct HTML notation, then it results in a compilation error in the Pearson VUE QTI Compiler and the compilation fails.
When any font attribute is modified for a MathML expression in the MathML window of any Question, an error message similar to the one shown below is generated in the Pearson VUE QTI Compiler and the compilation fails.
This can be fixed by editing the "Itempool.xml" with a text editor such as Notepad. Locate the affected code at the mentioned line number(s) and move the font attributes block (including mathsize, mathvariant, mathbackground, and mathcolor) from the <m:mrow> tag, into the <m:mtext> tag as shown in the example below
