New Quiz QTI file exports import LaTex broken


This behavior has been resolved and deployed to the production environment as of 12/11/23


If a New Quiz has LaTex content, is exported with the "Export Content" option in the quiz, and then imported to another quiz, raw LaTex and a broken image are seen.

Expected Behavior

New Quizzes with LaTex should export/import to other New Quizzes without the LaTex breaking.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a New Quiz. In a question, create an equation with the equation editor.

  2. Select 3 dots at the top of the quiz > Export Content. Export quiz.

  3. Create a new New Quiz. In Build page, go to 3 dots > Import Content, and import your quiz.
