In Oncourse Tests & Surveys, how do I import or export assessments?

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. To view a list of permissions associated with a given role, see Permissions, roles, and tools. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

You can import an assessment you previously created, or export one for use in another IMS QTI-compatible application. To import an assessment, the source file must be an IMS QTI-compatible XML file. For more on the IMS QTI specification, see the IMS Global Learning Consortium.

Note: Because some systems differ in their interpretations of IMS QTI standards, importing IMS QTI-compatible files from other systems may not work reliably.
