You might probably may want to narrow your search if too many Questions items are retrieved, or broaden it if you get very few results (or none at all).


titleWhere are the "Obsolete" and "Rejected" Questions?

The Project Bank, Observer, and Build Exam search pages will automatically filter out the inactive (rejected and obsolete) Questions items to limit the results to only Questions which items that can be used on Exam Forms. However, the Project Bank page under Manage, can retrieve those Questions items by simply adding State = Obsolete (or Rejected) in addition to any other state you would like to see in the search results. The Observer and Build Exam search pages will are never be able to retrieve Rejected or Draft Questionsitems, however here there is a project setting that will allow allows observers to search for Obsolete questions items from the Observer page.

titleWhat are the differences between the Observer Search page and the Manage Project Bank Search?

There are several key difference differences between these two pages:

  1. The Observer search page allows a read-only view of the Project Bank. Search on the Project Bank page under Manage, allows the Questions items to be edited.
  2. The Observer search page can be configured to limit the Questions items shown based on the Questions tab settings of the Project's Configuration page. This is not possible for the Project Bank page under Manage.
  3. The Observer search page will does not show Questions items in a Draftstate. It is possible to search on the Project Bank page under Manage, to display Draft or Obsolete Question items by specifically using the State = Draft or State = Obsolete searches.
