View an exam form

  1. To view the items, cases, and exam sections on a published exam form, click on the  View icon of the desired exam form.

    The published exam form is displayed:
  2. Click Close to return to the Exam Forms page.



The exam form is now listed at a Project level rather than the Item Bank level listing that was done in previous versions of ExamDeveloper. Exam forms with identical names existing under different projects in previous versions of the application, now have their respective project names appended to them with a hyphen to avoid confusion in identification. E.g., if an exam form named “ExamForm1” existed in two projects named “ProjectA” and “ProjectB”, then it was previously listed simply as “ExamForm1” twice. These are now listed as “ExamForm1-ProjectA” and “ExamForm1-ProjectB”.


Edit an exam form

  1. Navigate to the Create Exam Form→View Exam  menu. The Exam Forms page is displayed.
  2. Click the  Edit icon for the desired exam form.

    This opens the Create/Edit Exam Form page for that exam form.


  3. Here, you can add/delete items, sections, and metadata. You can also change the exam form name, and exam form template, among other things.

     How does the selection and pagination of search results work?

    Users can optimize the number of search items per page by selecting a value from the Items Per Page drop-down; this number ranges from 10 to 50 per page. The default number is 20.

    The selected number of search items is displayed in the grid below the drop-down.

    The search items per page can be changed and viewed at any time for the user's convenience.

    The search results are listed on multiple pages according to the selected number of Items Per Page in the drop-down, if the total number of search items resulting from the search criteria exceeds the selected number of items per page.

    The user can also directly jump to another page of the search results grid by clicking its corresponding link above the search results grid.

    The Selection drop-down in the left of the header row has four selection options: None, Some, Page, and All.

    This Selection drop-down is present on pages in which users need to select multiple search items for use such as viewing, modifying, etc.

    The Selection drop-down options perform the following functions:

    NoneAll items in the list across all pages of the search results grid are deselected.

    All items on the currently visible page of the search results grid are selected.

    If you move to another page of the search results grid, you will see that none of the items on that page are selected, but the items selected on the earlier page are still retained.


    This selection appears when you manually select a few items from the list by selecting their corresponding check boxes. This selection also appears if you select Page from the drop-down and then increase the Items per page, or if you select All from the drop-down and then deselect any item on the search results page.

    It is also possible to select items across multiple pages of the search results grid by simply making the selection on one page and moving on to another - the item selection made on the earlier page is retained even if you move to another page to make additional selections.


    All items in the list across all pages of the search results grid are selected.

    Even when moving to any other page of the search results grid, all the items on that new page are also selected.

    The selection drop-down remains as All if any of the items are not deselected, and it changes to Some if any of the items on any of the pages of the search results grid are deselected. Furthermore, if the deselection is made on the first page of the search results grid, then all the items on other pages are deselected. However, if you move to another page of the search results grid while the selection drop-down is All and deselect any item, the selection drop-down for that page changes to Some, while all items on the remaining pages remain selected with the selection drop-down selection showing as Page on those pages.

    You can sort these items based on the following criteria:

    • Random
    • Question ID
    • External ID
    • Blueprint ID

  4. Once all the required modifications have been made, click Save to save the changes.



Different versions of the same item can exist in different exam forms with their unique Revision Codes.

Of course, this is possible only in scenarios when an exam form has been published with an original item version, then the item is later modified to a new version (with new Revision Code), included in a new exam form, and then the new exam form is published. In this case, the item with the same Question ID but different Revision Codes coexist in two different exam forms because the modification(s) to that item after its inclusion in a published exam form do not affect its version in that exam form.

If the Draft Exam Form contains a published Section with an item, and that item is later modified, the exam form continues to show the version of the item prior to its modification.
