Instructor used Respondus to make a QTI file that they tried to upload into an Item Bank in the Quizzes LTI. At the last moment it wouldn’t import. Screen shots and files attached.
Hi Deactivated user...
We also use Respondus (Respondus 4.0: Exam Authoring Tool) to batch-upload several quiz questions at one time into a Canvas quiz. Typically, instructors will either:
Once the new quizzing engine is "live" for people to use, I think I remember you saying in a presentation (or maybe I talked to you at CanvasCon 2016) that we could convert quizzes in the current Canvas format to the new quizzing engine, correct? What happens when the current quizzing interface retires? I'm not sure that we'll be able to continue to use Respondus the way we have. We don't do a lot of work with QTI files right now, and so this may be of concern for us down the road when it comes to batch-uploading.
We have not made decisions on end-of-life timelines yet, so the Canvas Quizzes Classic to Quizzes.Next pathway is still a possibility to solve this particular issue. We fully intend on supporting partner integrations as the toolset continues to mature into general availability. I don't have a timeline for possibility yet, but we will share more as we can.
The only alternative walkaround that I found out works like this: you import the v1.1.3 QTI to canvas the same good old way as you have been using since forever, then you export the quiz with all questions ( usually, generated by the system) as a zip file. Then you reimport this zip file to the New Quiz as an item bank, then you can start playing with the random selection in the new interface. It is cumbersome as it can be, but it works. I don't know when they will drop the Legacy for all, if that happens, I am not sure importing the QTI will continue to work.
