I am a very new user to Moodle so bear with me.
I exported quiz questions that were created in "Respondus" in this format (IMS QTI XML file) and when I attempt to import the questions and select "IMS QTI" format from the drop down menu I get a message saying Moodle does not yet support this format. Why does it appear on the drop down menu. There are a lot of posts concerning this format. Do I need to install another module? I have thousands of questions in Respondus so this is definitely essential to my SANITY
Thanks, in advance, for some assistance.
Sure appreciate the input.
The issue right now is not Respondus which fully supports IMS QTI 1.1+ import and export, but the lack of IMS QTI 1.1+ import/export in Moodle 1.4.x.
I understand that Respondus fully supports IMS QTI 1.1+ export but that still leaves no efficient way to get Respondus output files into Moodle 1.4.3. The script we developed converts the Respondus output files in WebCT format because that format I felt comfortable working with. eCollege does not have a built-in way to export quiz files, so we use Respondus to extract them from eCollege and then use the script to convert them to a format Moodle can import. If Moodle 1.5 has IMS QTI import capabilities, we'll likely switch to that method when we upgrade. But in the meantime in 1.4.3, we need a way to quickly convert Respondus output files, hence I thought others might also need an interim method to getting Respondus output files into Moodle.
Debra, Yes. Its fairly simple to use but I'm putting a ReadMe file to go with it and will post them both tomorrow at the latest.
Just following up. Can I get the script you described in this previous posting:
Debra, I could not get the Respondus QTI output to work either on 1.43, so we wrote an ASP script to convert Respondus WebCT 3x-4x text file output to GIFT. WE have a ton of multiple choice quizzes on eCollege and we just import them into Respondus using the eCollege personality and then change to the WebCT 3x-4x personality so we get the feedback in the text output. I've used it now on about 20 quiz files and have not had any problems. We have not hacked it into our Moodle yet so we run it first and then import the GIFT files into Moodle but I'll send you a copy if you are interested.
Another challenge I am having is importing questions from Respondus or WebCT with the images embedded. I just imported a WebCT Math quiz from WebCT into Moodle and all the text was in tact but none of the images I created with an Equation editor. I also have this entire test in Respondus as well.
HELP....need to have test ready by tomorrow!
So if you can export in BB 5.5 format, it may work now, if not, our new importer might help.
We'll post here when it is ready for testing.
Note if you are updating in CVS, the format of the import/export class has changed very slightly! The name now reflects the format and there are two new methods - provide_import and provide_export which must return true if the class has that functionality if you see what I mean
Hi Dawn -
Hello from the neighboring state of Georgia. I am a recent transplant to Georgia, and a geek pursuing Moodle nirvana for the high school where I work (northgwinnett.com).
I was wondering if I could borrow your ASP script for the QTI export conversion? A teacher of ours uses Respondus extensively, and we need to get his quizzes into Moodle.
Thanks for your time and efforts,
