Importing or exporting an assessment

Note: To complete the procedures in this document, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

You can import an assessment you previously created, or export one for use in another IMS QTI-compatible application. To import an assessment, the source file must be an IMS QTI-compatible XML file. For more information on the IMS QTI specification, see the IMS Global Learning Consortium page at:

Import an assessment

To import an assessment:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant course or project site, click Tests & Quizzes.

  2. On the Assessments page, under "New Assessments" and next to "Import Assessment", click Import.

  3. In the "Choose a File" field, enter or browse to the file you wish to import. When you have selected it, click Import.

Export an assessment

To export an assessment:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant course or project site, click Tests & Quizzes.

  2. On the Assessments page, under "Core Assessments", locate the assessment you want to export, and below its title, click Export.

  3. Next to Choose export type:, click the appropriate radio button for QTI v 1.2 or Content Packaging, and click Export.

    If you choose Content Packaging, you will be prompted to open or save the export file.

    Choosing QT v 1.2 will generate an XML file that will display in your browser. When you see the generated file, use your browser's save command to save it (i.e., export it) to your hard drive or some other storage device. For example, in most browsers you would click File and select Save Page As, and then select a location to save the exported assessment. By default, the name will be exportAssessment.xml. If you wish, you can rename this so you can easily find the assessment later.
