Note
Since the release 12.0 only tests in the QTI 2.1 standard can be created in OpenOLAT. The QTI 1.2 test information is only relevant if you still have old learning resources in QTI 1.2 format. If this is the case, you should convert them to the QTI 2.1 format.

Already created Currently, old QTI 1.2 tests can still be used and edited. A conversion into the new 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 ist still possible. Aktuell können alte QTI 1.2 Tests zwar noch genutzt aber nicht mehr umfassend geändert/bearbeitet werden. Um den vollen Funktionsumfang des Test-Editors zu erhalten und z.B. auch neue Fragen hinzufügen zu können, müssen Sie ihn in das aktuelle QTI 2.1 Format konvertieren. Das lässt sich einfach mit einem Klick erledigen. Mit dem neuen Format stehen Ihnen dann viele weitere Fragetypen und Einstellungsmöglichkeiten zur Verfügung.. This can easily be done with one click. The new format provides you with many more question types and setting options.

Convert whole tests

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. 

Note
titleHint

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.

Convert single questions

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. 

Further

The following points need to be considered when converting questions or tests from QTI 1.2 to QTI 2.1:

  • If a hint is added, it will be shown in QTI 2.1 anyway. It cannot be hidden. (Shown as button, which can be opened by test participants)
  • If a feedback is filled in, it will be shown in QTI 2.1 anyway. It cannot be hidden.
  • The description on test level will not be converted. In QTI 2.1 no description can be added to the test level.
  • The section description is converted. In QTI 2.1 it will be shown above each question.
  • The question description is not converted and will not be shown anywhere in the QTI 2.1 questions, as QTI 2.1 question items do not have a description. 
  • Time limits are available in QTI 2.1 only for the whole test. Time limit on the level of questions or sections are therefore not converted. 
  • For gap text questions alternatives can be added. The separation of these alternatives has been done by semicolon in QTI 1.2 and will be done be comma in QTI 2.1. During the conversion, the separation sign is changed.
