The Exam Blueprint defines the Domain, Task and Subtask of your project. ExamDeveloper allows you to upload the blueprint for the project from an Excel file or you can import questions for the project from other sources.

What format should be used for the Blueprint ID?


The Blueprint ID column should only contain the ID of the full blueprint where the question in tied. This is why there is only one column for blueprint ID in the template.

To import questions to the correct blueprint for your project, you need to identify the Blueprint ID corresponding to blueprint already in the project.

All questions should have a Blueprint ID


Although you can upload questions into the system without being associated with a blueprint, you will not be able to change the state of a question to "Complete" without specifying a Blueprint ID for it. Therefore, it is important to either upload the questions with the blueprint information or "batch edit" them after they are in the system.

To view the Exam Blueprint of a project:

Click Manage → Import. The Import Questions page comes up.

Click See Blueprint. The exam blueprint is displayed.


You need to use the corresponding number of the blueprint item, not the entire x.y.z notation. For a domain id, use the ‘x’ part, for the task id use the ‘y’ part and for the subtask id use the ‘z’ part.

What if I'm importing references on the template?


References should be entered on the “References” sheet of the upload template. The “References” column on the Questions sheet should only have numbers in it, corresponding to the ID listed on the “References” sheet. There will need to be the full reference, “Title”, “Author”, “Publisher”, etc for each reference.

Common Instructions:


1. The type of question you are importing. Select the type from one of the types in the list.

2. Same image is not allowed in two or more options.

3. Reference fields are mandatory or optional is depends on project reference settings.

4. Metadata category is not mandatory. If the category is not specified then it is considered as default category metadata.

5. Comments: If the comments are application defined then it should be ["Free Text", "External ID"] and if its other than that then it is imported as new comment type.
