You know the old joke, you wait for hours for one import format, and then two come along at the same time!
Question Writer now supports importing questions from text format (.txt and .rtf) and also from Moodle XML format. I can’t guarantee that these will work perfectly for every single possible question from the outset – the permutations are just too great. However, we’re serious about getting this right. If you experience difficultly importing a set of questions – send the file you’re importing to email@example.com and we’ll do our level best to correct the problem.
Also, I’m interested to know what other import formats you’d like to see supported – more widely used formats have a better chance of making it into QW, but drop me a line, ideally with samples from the format and I’ll see what we can do.
