A question bank is a database of individual test questions resp. items, usually in the QTI technical format, including all relevant information and metadata. Items are bundled and subsequently exported as a test learning resource back into OpenOLAT.
Each item not only contains the question itself along with the corresponding answers, but also information about the author, the creation date or keywords, including item analysis parameters.
OpenOLATs collaborative question bank enables authors to create, store, edit and reuse test questions as self-contained items in a catalog-like structure. Questions may be shared with other authors or groups.
This chapter is meant for test authors and explains how individual test questions, so-called items, are created, edited and managed with the question bank.
