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

Note:
Oncourse will be retired in August 2016. Canvas, IU's next learning management system, is currently available for teaching and learning. For more, see About the transition from Oncourse to Canvas.

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.
