Changes to default scoring for Display, Essay, and Compound items

Available from1911 (approximately November 2019)
Rollout paceFull rollout - users will have immediate visibility as a result of upgrade
Last updated 

In an Exam publisher, it is most likely that Display, Essay, and Compound items will be unscored. However, when these types are added to an exam, they're marked as 'scored' by default. Therefore, with this change, these item types will be marked as unscored by default when they are added to an exam.

Changes to project sharing rules for items and cases

Available fromTo be determined
Rollout paceFull rollout - users will have immediate visibility as a result of upgrade
Last updated 


When an item or case is removed from a project, it is automatically added to the default 'itembank' project, which is not desirable behavior for many managers. We will be changing the rules around item and case sharing so that:

  • Users will not be able to remove an item or case from the current project if it is editable. They will see an error if this is attempted.

  • A user will still be able to make the item or case editable in a new project; doing so will also continue to make the item viewable in the old project.

  • Users will still be able to remove an item or cases from the current project if it is viewable. Furthermore, it will now be possible to remove the item from the default ‘itembank’ project.
  • Making items and cases editable, viewable or removing them from projects will no longer also share them automatically into the default ‘itembank’ project (this will now need to be a manual action.)

Note: this change will have no impact on sharing exams, sections, or collections, etc.

Legacy custom report retirement

By introducing the most recent custom report available to Project Managers on the Manage → Reports page, we are left with three older custom reports that have now been surpassed and are due for retirement. We will be removing the following three custom reports from ExamDeveloper:

  • Question Data
  • Question and Statistics Data
  • All data

Project Managers who are still working with these reports should switch to the custom report available at Manage → Reports (in the Custom Reports tab).
