Enhancement

Managing Questions by Category

Site Administrator and Instructors are now able to tag categories to the questions in the question bank. There will be a new column in the listing to indicate which category the questions are being tagged to. An additional "Category" drop down menu will now allow site administrator and instructors to quickly filter the questions by category, easing the search process

Just select a category from the drop down menu and click on the "Search" button. It will automatically filter all the questions that is being tagged to that category.

Privacy Settings

We have included an option to allow instructors to set the privacy settings of the questions or assessment they have created to private if they do not wish for others to view or edit it. This will ensure that no changes will be made to the questions or assessment by another user.

Instructors can change the privacy setting of the questions by adding a new question or editing an existing question. The privacy setting will be located at the top right hand corner of the form and will be able to toggle between "Private" and "Public".

Similarly for creating new assessment or editing an assessment, instructors will be able to set the privacy of the assessment from the privacy toggle settings at the top right hand corner of the form under the general tab.

Enhancement

Question Bank

Site Administrator and Instructors are now able to make changes to existing questions by clicking on the “Edit” icon. 

Site Administrators and Instructors are now able to duplicate existing question by clicking on the “Duplicate” icon.  

The duplicated question will be saved as a new entry in the question bank for the user to edit further.

The addition of the Duplicate button in the Question Bank will help you better create a variety of questions with ease and contribute to the growing resources pool to enhance your learners’ experience. 

Assessment 

Site Administrators and Instructors are now able to edit the question in the assessment by clicking on the “Edit” Icon in the “Questions” Tab of the assessment. 

This better improves the Assessment as a one-stop function for you to create and edit your course content. 

UI Improvement

  • Questions in assessment “Questions” tab are no longer interactive.  
  • Changes to the visual of the questions in assessment “Questions” tab 

Site administrators and Instructors now have the option to save the edited questions in the assessment to the question bank by checking the “Save as a new entry in the question bank” checkbox.  

This eases your workflow and gives you the option to save question directly into the question bank without having to navigate away from Assessment page. You will be able to see the saved question directly in the Question Bank after for your own use or to share with other users.

New Features

Saving questions to question bank from assessment

Site administrators and Instructors now have the option to save the edited questions in the assessment to the question bank by checking the “Save as a new entry in the question bank” checkbox.  

This eases your workflow and gives you the option to save question directly into the question bank without having to navigate away from Assessment page. You will be able to see the saved question directly in the Question Bank after for your own use or to share with other users. 

Separate entity between question bank question and assessment question 

For the site administrators and instructors, we want to ease your trouble of having to navigate between the Question bank and Assessment to edit your questions. Thus, with the new enhancements and features, we aim to better establish both the Question bank and Assessment in their function to serve you better.  

With this change, you will be able to independently edit assessment questions from the Assessment page to better customize questions for your course learners. This improves the Assessment as a one-stop function for you to create your course material. Likewise, you will be able to independently edit questions in the Question Bank to contribute and propagate our shared Question Bank for your fellow users.
