Question Writer 4 Beta

Question Writer 4 is now available in beta form. ‘Beta’ means that it now has all of its features but it is not well tested yet and some of the translations aren’t ready yet. Don’t use it for anything critical just yet, but do check out the new features!

I’ll be blogging the new features in detail over the coming weeks, but here’s a summary of what’s new.
Major New Features
Pages – Pages allow multiple questions to be placed on the same page
Multiple Scores – You can now specify a score variable to be associated with each question – this allows you to maintain multiple scores in the same test.
Feedback – You can now define feedback pages with content to be displayed based on the answers or scores achieved in previous questions.
Branching – Branching allows skipping questions, or jumping to previous questions based on the answers or scores achieved in previous questions.
Plugin Question Type – Plugin Questions allow any question type to be seamlessly integrated into Question Writer. The beta includes 3 sample Plugin Question types. This allows you to write your own question types.
Content Model– Text, images and Flash can now be used together both in question content and answer options. This allows matching images to text/sound for example, or multiple images in the question content.
