For the release 11.0 OpenOLAT changed the test from the IMS Standard QTI 1.2 to the IMS Standard QTI 2.1. This change brings along some modifications which are carried together here.
In the authoring for tests two different learning resources can be created. On one side it's the already known Test in the format QTI 1.2. On the other side it's the Test (QTI 2.1), which will be created in the format QTI 2.1. Depending on which type of learning resource you're choosing here a different editor will open, where the corresponding test can be created. Further information about creating tests can be found for QTI 1.2 and for QTI 2.1 on the corresponding pages.
But what happens with tests which have already been created and are in operation, but in the format QTI 1.2? Theses tests and questions are not lost, but can be converted. Tests can be converted directly in the test, single questions in the the question bank.
To convert a QTI 1.2 test, open the learning resource test (not the course element) and choose under Test "Convert to QTI 2.1". After you inserted a title and saved, the converted test can be found in the authoring under My entries. Through this process the old test will not be deleted.
If the learning resource has been embedded in the course as test, it will not be exchanged automatically. If you want to run the test in the new format QTI 2.1 you can either create a new course element test where you embed the briefly converted learning resource or you exchange the learning resource in the existing test.
If you exchange the existing test all results will be lost. It is thus recommended to create a new course element test and limit the visibility/access to the old test.
Beside tests also single questions can be converted. Questions are converted in the question bank. Therefore open the question bank, mark the questions (in the format IMS QTI 1.2) you want to convert and confirm with the button Convert.
Converted questions will be saved under My questions.
If you have put some questions to lists or shares as well, the will be found there still in the format QTI 1.2 If you want to have the questions also there in the new format QTI 2.1 you need to add the questions again to the list or share manually. The old questions can be removed to avoid a doubled appearance.
The following points need to be considered when converting questions or tests from QTI 1.2 to QTI 2.1:
After converting please check the test configuration to make sure, that the test is shown as you desired.
