1. Introduction

1.1 Question and Test Interoperability Overview

The Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) Specification describes a basic structure for the representation of question (item) and test (assessment) data and their corresponding results reports [QTI, 02j]. Therefore, the specification enables the exchange of this test, assessment and results data between Learning Management Systems, as well as content authors and, content libraries and collections. The QTI Specification is defined in XML to promote the widest possible adoption. XML is a powerful, flexible, industry standard markup language used to encode data models for Internet-enabled and distributed applications. The QTI Specification is extensible and customizable to permit immediate adoption, even in specialized or proprietary systems. Leading suppliers and consumers of learning products, services and content contributed time and expertise to produce this final specification. This document describes the amendment and errata changes to the V1.2 specification to create the V1.2.1 specification.

1.2 Scope and Context

This document describes amendments that should be made by adopters of the IMS QTI Specification V1.2, thereby creating the IMS QTI V1.2.1 Specification. The differences between the V1.2 and the V1.2.1 specifications are limited to:

  • Typographic corrections - corrections of spelling mistakes, wrong references, phraseology, etc.;
  • Editorial additions - the provision of improved or new descriptions to clarify the specification;
  • Functional corrections - changes to the functionality to correct mistakes and to clarify the intended capability of the specification.

1.3 Structure of this Document

The structure of this document is:

 
2. Amendments & Errata Instructions The resolution of the issues that were not deferred until a later release. Each instruction describes the changes to be made to the documentation;
3. Deliverables The set of documents and supporting information that is released to form the IMS QTI V1.2.1 specification;
Appendix A - The Initial Issues List The full set of issues that were addressed as a part of this revision of the IMS QTI specification. Many of the issues were deferred for consideration under a later release of the specification.

2.2 Editorial Amendments

2.2.1 ASI Information Model Document

 
Amendment Instructions:

Page 20

Change the following paragraph
From:

In V1.1/1.2 flows may or may not be used - this ensures backwards compatibility. When flows are used this will be indicated by the presence of the top-level <flow> element within the <presentation> element. If any flow construct is to be used then the <flow> element must be present within the <presentation> element. Three separate elements have been defined to support flows:

To:
In V1.1/1.2 flows may or may not be used - this ensures backwards compatibility. When flows are used this will be indicated by the presence of the top-level <flow> element within the <presentation> element. If any flow construct is to be used then the <flow> element must be present within the <presentation> element. The <flow> structure itself can have any number of nested <flow> substructures and so an arbitrarily complex organization can be imposed on the material as required. However, it must be noted that all but the simplest combinations may result in unexpected interoperability behavior. Three separate elements have been defined to support flows:

Issue Number:

qti-20021129-01 and qti-20021129-02

 
Amendment Instructions:

Page 43

Change the 'Notes' entries for rows 5.2.4 and 5.2.5 in Table 5.5
From:

Applies to the value of the score after all of the item processing has been completed.

To:
Applies to the value of the score after all of the response processing instructions have been completed within the <resprocessing> block i.e. the limits are not applied at the execution of each <setvar> operation on the variable. The values that fall outside the ranges are truncated.

Issue Number:

qti-20021202-03


2.2.2 ASI Best Practice and Implementation Document

 
Amendment Instructions:

Page 87

Add the following paragraph onto the end of the 'Response and Rendering Types' sub-section of Section 7.3.2.

In the case of hotspots, as identified by the usage of the <render_hotspot> element, then the associated labels are defined by using the <material> element within the <response_label> element. An example of this is:

<render_hotspot>
   <response_label ident="A" rarea="Ellipse">
      <material>
         <mattext>Paris</mattext>
      </material>100,100,2,2
   </response_label>
</render_hotspot>

In this example the label 'Paris' is assigned to the hotspot point as defined by the co-ordinates '100,100,2,2'. The actual positioning of the label is implementation dependent.

Change the definition of the 'Class' term
From:

The class attribute is used by the flow, flow_label and flow_mat elements. It is used to define the nature of the block - the possible values are determined using an external vocabulary contained in the file 'ims_qti_flowvocabulary.html'. The default value is 'Block' but 'List' is another common value.

To:
The class attribute is used by the flow, flow_label and flow_mat elements. It is used to define the nature of the block - the permissible values should be defined in an external file that can be referenced. The default value is 'Block' but 'List' is another common value. The handling of this attribute with respect to rendering of the material is implementation dependent because there is no agreed vocabulary and semantics.
