Pages/Feature:

Exam Forms

Description:

When users edit the exam group name using the Edit Exam Name pop-up window and click Save, the exam group is updated for all the exams in the exam group. No new revisions of the exams are created.

See the Add an Exam Form topic for details.

 

Pages/Feature:

Exam Form Node Global Configuration

Description:

When exporting exam QTI, users now have the ability to export objectives using the system generated objective idents, or using the blueprint ID as the objective idents. This applies to both QTI templates and QTI exam forms.

This solution was created to solve a client specific issue where the results import process is hard-coded to only accept specific objective idents from results. This solution allows the client to use the blueprint ID as the objective ident.

Sample QTI using the system generated objective idents

Sample QTI using the blueprint ID for objective idents

See the ExamForm Node Global Configuration tab topic for details.

 

Pages/Feature:

Batch Edit

Description:

Added the Preserve incomplete review data option to allow Project Managers to make a change via the Batch Edit feature and not require a re-review by reviewers when a new revision is created.

Use this feature when a Project Manager makes a change via Batch Edit that creates a new revision of an item that has already been advanced or returned by a reviewer. The Project Manger can determine the change is not significant enough to require all the reviewers to re-review the item. This feature creates a new revision of the item, but it does not clear out the review data for the current state on the user tracking tab. Reviewers are not required to re-review the item. The same number of reviewers are still required to trigger a state change for the item.

See the Edit Properties of Multiple Items topic for details.

 

Pages/Feature:

ScoreModel (SumOfScores)

Description:

Users can now edit the value of the <map_input> element which was previously always generated with the value SCORE in the QTI output. This feature works for exam forms, templates, and DT Templates.

Sample QTI previous <map_input> element

Sample QTI new <map_input> element
