I think Hagen has made an important point here, and the lack of examples
is something that we need to tackle - I've been having a look at the
examples that come with the current public draft and they don't really
cover enough.. A lot of elements aren't covered by examples.
So, I think we need a community driven effort to get a better set of
examples. We don't need lots of examples from the same template, but
lots of examples that are a bit different. They also need to be
I'd be happy to coordinate this, and do some checks to make sure items
and assessments are valid. Obviously any examples would have to be
released under something like creative commons, so they could be

Subject: [QTI] QTI examples packages
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?
