Once all the required modifications have been made and saved to the Exam Form configuration, you are ready to export the QTI Package file to be played in the Pearson VUE Player for the candidate to take the Exam. To generate this ZIP archive package file, click the Export button at the bottom. If you have made changes, you must click Save before clicking Export.
An Export options pop-up appears where you can decide how to generate the Question Review Form, which is a file named "Review.xml", that is also generated along with the other files in the export package. This file contains information about the list of Questions from the Exam Form.
The following selections are available in the Export options pop-up:
- Generate question review form: The Question Review Form "Review.xml" is generated containing all the Questions from the standard Item Bank Project that are on the Exam Form.
- Include items in delivery template item bank in review form: The Question Review Form "Review.xml" is generated containing all the Questions from the standard Item Bank Project that are on the Exam Form and also all the Questions that may be from the Delivery Template Item Bank via template applied to the Exam Form.
The export begins when you click the Ok button. A progress indicator circular animation is shown while the QTI Export is generating.
