> Importing From Blackboard 7?
Posted: Dec 13 2006, 05:44 PM

Is there any way to export a test created in Blackboard 7 and import it into ExamView? The ExamView help docs vaguely imply that it's possible, but Blackboard only exports to a zip file and I don't see any way to import that into ExamView.

A similar question asked a couple of years ago on these forums was basically answered "well, get your textbook publishers to support ExamView" but that's not the question or an appropriate answer - these tests were created by me, the instructor, in Blackboard, not by the publisher. And because of problems that I'm having in Blackboard that I never had in ExamView I'd like to bring them over but I just don't see any way.

Any help/suggestions that you can provide are appreciated.

Currently you can export from ExamView into Blackboard, but you can not export from Blackboard into ExamView. To be able to export from Blackboard into ExamView would take a joint development effort. I would suggest contacting Blackboard and suggesting an ExamView export feature.

If you can export to RTF, you can then import into ExamView.

When you export from Blackboard, it is a zipped file. I unzipped and then tried to import the xml file into ExamView and got this message.

imsmanifest.xml (line 0): is not valid at this location. The root element must be <ExamView>.

There must be a way to go into the file and edit the xml code so this can work.
