How do I import questions to my exam?

Do you have a lot of questions you want to add?
With an import you can upload a lot of exam questions in one go.
Please find an example .csv file with the correct structure for the import.

Just keep the top-row unchanged and enter your content below in the specified columns. And you should be good to go!  : )

Here is how you should add your content to the columns:
Question  > Please enter the Questions here (one question per row)
Points  >  Here you can enter the amount of points that you would like to give for this question
Answer_1  > You can enter any of the answer-options here
Explanation_1  > Here you can enter an explanation for when someone selects this answer (only working with a Business Owl and up)
Correct_1  > If answer_1 is correct you enter a "1", if incorrect enter a "0"
This is repeated for 10 answers
Explanation  >  Here you can enter a general explanation for the question

Are you having difficulties with importing questions to your exam?

The most common reason why uploads fail is that the CSV is not in a UTF-8 format. You can set your Excel to save CSV files as UTF-8 in the following way:

  1. Go to "Save as" and select the dropdown "Extra" and then select "Weboptions"
  2. The go to "Encoding" tab and set it to UNICODE UTF-8

Please note that Excel on MAC cannot save in UTF-8 (nobody knows why). A simple work-around is uploading the file to Google Docs and then downloading it as a CSV file, it will then automatically have a UTF-8 encoding.
