primaryQuestion Bank Administration

Configuration by pool administrator

The administration area of the question bank provides question bank managers with access to the five organisational domains of the question bank. Just like e.g. the user manager or the author, question bank manager is a role assigned to a system user by an administrator. The question bank manager has the right to change / manipulate/regulate organisational aspects of the question bank, but he has no control over the content of the question bank or individual pools. The question bank manager, however, has access to the following domains of the question bank.

Subject areas are used for subject-specific keywording of the questions (items), and are presented in a hierarchical structure. This represents, for example, possible courses of study in educational organizations, or possibly organizational units in the private sector. New subject areas are added via the "Create new taxonomy level" button or via "Import taxonomy levels". Already existing departments can also be edited.

Question Type

OpenOlat has several standardized question types. All are available for test item creation  that can be created either in the test editor as well as of the learning resource Test or in the item editor in of the question bank. Create more additional question types if the existing default types aren't sufficient. Please note that the question types of OpenOlat are not sufficient. The default question types can not cannot be deleted.

Newly created questions must be translated per available language so that both German and English speaking users, for example, will see the correct terms and not the translation key visible here.

Newly created questions need to be translated into each language available, so as to make sure that e.g. german as well as english speaking users are shown the correct terms instead of the translation key visible in the screenshot.

Create question type

After successfully creating a new question type, the new type will appear in the type table at the very bottom. The Translation - or the missing translation - is shown in the translation column. The following name convention will always apply: 

item.type.[Type name]

This is the so-called translation key, which allows the new type to be translated into the various languages available on your OpenOlat system.

Click in the corresponding line in the translation column. The following form opens:

  3. Active the comparative language and select the relevant language in order to compare and verify the terms.

Repeat these steps for all languages available in your OpenOlat system.
