|When does this happen?||Outcome|
|Examine Questions||Writers, Reviewers, Manager||Comments changing order after making changes||When editing items, some comments were revered order making it look like new comments were added and the old comments were removed when in fact they were just switched order on the Comments screen.||Corrected the application so that when items are updated, the comments will remain in the correct order.||Fix|
|View Exams||Managers||Translated Exams|
When Clients create translated exams from a source English exam. It is time consuming to create exams manually when they are exact duplicates apart from the item language. Users need to be able to create language versions of a source exam by selecting the original exam, creating a copy with a new language code and swapping out the items with that language code.
|View Exam||Managers||Ability to add multiple items and sections to Exams.||Currently in ExamDeveloper a user cannot add the same item to multiple sections.

|Set Standard > Evaluate Rating||Mangers, Standard Setter||Provide accurate calculation for the range and average range when Setting Standard|
When evaluating the rating, calculation should drop users with no rating and remove that user from count of users (for average calc). so that the average range is calculated based on the question ratings.

|Prepare Assets > Examine Asset||Mangers||Users unable to choose review states when changing asset state|

|Viewing Item within Test Driver||Item Bank Manager||PDF doesn't expand along with pop-up window when resizing||When a PDF is attached as a pop-up exhibit there is a material tag that is generated in the QTI during export that seems to prevent the PDF from expanding when the pop-up window is expanded. After removing this material tag the PDF does fully expand with the window.||Extra <mattext/> not exporting in itempool.xml. Split-screen exhibit also worked as expected within Test Driver.||Fix|
|When does this happen?||Outcome|
