Dear IMS-QTI users,
I have been trying to find readily available QTI packages to download in
order to test different learning environments such as ATutor. I had
hoped to find an entry pointing to freely available packages somewhere
in their FAQ or documentation; this came to nothing.
I consulted the impressive list that the JIS CETIS wiki offers, but
apart from dozens of abbreviations with descriptions that try too hard
to sound all serious, only a few entries (5 out of ~50) seem to contain
*actual* questions. The pity is, of these five, one seems to be just
another talky side ("*will* establish"), another is not accesible
to parties outside their university, the next features dead-end
pdf-papers and, finally, two rely heavily on Java and
presumably hide their questions in proprietary databases. Surely, this
is not the point of defining a plain-text XML-standard like QTI?
This seems to be a less than satisfactory state of affairs. I would
sincerely appreciate any guidance onto more fruitful soil.
On a related side-note: How do I search the mailing-list archives
without having to browse it month-by-month in the mailman-archive?
