QTI to Numbas

A tool to convert QTI packages to Numbas exams.

This is an ambitious goal! At the moment, it can convert the following kinds of packages:

  • a bank of multiple choice questions exported from Blackboard in QTI 2.1 format.
  • a Canvas quiz created using the old quiz engine, exported in QTI 1.2 format.

It could be expanded to support more of the QTI specification.

There is no real error handling: packages containing unsupported items will fail.

I (Christian Lawson-Perfect) don't have access to Blackboard, so if you have a QTI package that doesn't work, please send it to me and I'll try to work out how to support it.

Installation

This is a Python 3 script which requires a couple of packages to be installed.

To install the packages, run:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Usage

To convert a package called question_bank.zip, run:

python qti_to_numbas.py question_bank.zip

A .exam file containing all of the questions in the question bank will be created in the current directory. You can upload this file to the Numbas editor.

To do

  • Deal with generic/correct/incorrect feedback in Canvas quizzes.
