Currently, old QTI 1.2 tests can still be used but can no longer be changed/edited comprehensively. To get the full functionality of the test editor and to add new questions, you have to convert it to the current QTI 2.1 format. This can easily be done with one click. The new format provides you with many more question types and setting options.
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".
A copy of the old test is saved in the new format. Both test versions are available under "My entries".
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.
