Assessment Security & Versions

Jun 10, 2013

Hi everyone,

I have a question about creating an assessment. I am creating an assessment that has 3 versions. The assessment is made up of 3 sections, the first two sections will stay the same for all the versions, but the third section will be different for each version.

Is it possible to create all three versions in one file, and then have it so one of the versions of Section 3 is selected randomly each time the assessment is delivered? Also, this assessment is delivered in an LMS and the scores must be sent to the LMS gradebook.

Thanks for your help! Let me know if you need more details..

Hi Daniela,

For creating the three different courses, you could import the slides using this technique. That way, you have all of the same slides and content in all three courses. Or, you could simply use the "Save As" option to save and name the additional 2 projects.

For the next question on randomizing, are you referring to actual quiz questions or? If you pull over a quiz or questions from a question bank, you can randomize that question bank - but I'm really not sure how you have this set up. Can you share a little more information on how you have this and how you'd like to have it changed in the third course?

Thanks Daniela!

Hi Christine,

Thanks for your reply -- basically we have an assessment delivered on the LMS as one scorm object, the slides are divided by sections of questions, the third section of questions I want to have slightly different, so we are developing 3 sets of test questions that are all slightly different, and we want different sets of questions to go to different people at different times.

I wonder if it could work with the question bank, the only thing is we would need the same "set" of questions, for example if there is Test Version A, B and C and two questions per each test, questions 1A and 2A would be together and 1B and 2B would be together.

Does that make sense?

Hi Daniela,

I think so - I was under the impression you wanted to create three different projects with the same content, but alter the last one slightly. I didn't realize you meant that you would have different sections in the same course. I apologize for missing that!

If you're breaking up the questions into different sections, a question bank may not be the way to go. However, if you want to randomize the questions that are pulled into the question slides, that may work to your benefit. 

You could always "lock" the questions in the question bank, as well - so questions 1A and 2A are always generated together, the same with 1B and 2B.
