Is there a way to export individual question banks as separate files, rather than exporting specific quizzes and/or the entire course? Thank you.
Sarah, as you've already surmised, you can export a quiz, but not an individual question bank, as a file. These are the steps to create a quiz from a question bank and then export it as a file:
Here are some other methods of sharing quiz questions:
This does, indeed work.
Also the import function. I exported an exam which I made in 2002 using TestGen 7.5 using the QTI option and imported it into a "testing" quiz. It was imported successfully and it also imported the image ( a .png ).
However, when one is using something like TestGen one should, as Tim Gunn so eloquently directs the Project Runway aspirants...be very THOUGHTFUL... about the choice of shoes from the wall, oooh...sorry...be very thoughtful about the actual "thing" that is being exported. There is an absolute plethora of options in something like TestGen, and the "descriptions" of the "file types and where they would go" was intended, methinks, for the "untrained". This oversimplification / overexplanation of the file types can lead to the wrong results. However, the wrong result can merely be deleted and another option attempted.
At first I was slightly uneasy about Canvas seemingly only being able to "move files around within canvas". Would I be creating a lot of exams within Canvas and not be able to export them to the system of another college or, if my present college changes the LMS system, what then?
The QTI import / export is............FOR MOST OF US.... something of a "well i only make so many exams and don't really have a way to TEST what will go in and out easily".
After researching QTI and finding the very timely article at Wikipedia, > search for QTI Wikipedia< , I see that what "seems" to be the majority of open source systems, SAKAI being one, are supported.
Thus, one "should" only have a problem importing from a proprietary system to QTI but if it "says" that it will so export then, from my small experience it should work.
Then the only concern would be exporting back INTO the proprietary format. I have not so attempted and probably, at this stage will not.
The short answer would be (as with so much on Canvas): No.
It would be nice to be able to export account-level question banks to GIFT format. Without having to export content from Canvas then import it back to another LMS to get it to GIFT format.
