Add Item Bank sort, add field, and export functions

0 Kudos

My role is as a course director and examiner of medical sciences courses.

The recent move from old to new quiz formats came with a switch from a discrete question bank to item banks that can only be accessed by building or editing a quiz. This makes management of the whole item bank, for example for purposes of auditing, item performance monitoring, standard setting, very difficult to achieve individually and impossible when working in a team.

Please therefore reinstate functions that allow users to organise large Item Banks directly and to append additional fields to the default fields (suich as Angoff scores, question performance statistics).
