The QTI 2.1 format is used in OpenOLAT to create tests. A detailed description of this QTI specification can be found on the IMS website. Creating and saving the tests in a standard format makes it possible to use them as course elements in different OpenOLAT courses on the one hand, and to use them in different LMS supporting the same version of the IMS QTI format on the other.

If there are questions in the older format QTI 1.2 (e.g. from an old OpenOLAT version) they can be converted. Information on how to quickly create a test can be found here.

Tests created in OpenOLAT can also be exported as Word files. Click on "Export as Word file" under Export in the Test Editor. The test is then downloaded in Zip format with two Word files, one of which contains only the questions, the other the solutions. The exported file contains all important information about the test including the score, so that you can use the document directly for offline tests.

On the following pages you will learn in detail which possibilities and settings the OpenOLAT test editor offers:
