      Description

      There were two files generated by Notre Dame for importing into assessments One appeared to be a Blackboard import file and the other was QTI. They both generate different errors when importing. The Blackboard generates a stack trace, the QTI imports with the wrong question type (short answers instead of multiple choice).

      When importing the blackboard module (Either via lessons or Site Info) there's a completely different stack trace on 11, 12 and 13 though 11 and 12 get closer to importing the content. 13 doesn't even get to selecting the tool. It would be nice to have this working.

      Importing the QTI file appears to be a problem because it's using these tags to identify the question types and it incorrectly defaults to "short answer". These appear to be deprecated tags in the QTI standard which Sakai doesn't recognize and incorrectly detects these questions. It could possibly use these as hints to get the question type.

                <qmd_itemtype>Logical Identifier</qmd_itemtype>
                <qmd_renderingtype>Choice</qmd_renderingtype>
                <qmd_responsetype>Single</qmd_responsetype>
      

      The blackboard file (Attached as CH_01_-_Data_and_Statistics_Blackboard.zip)
      The QTI file is CH_01_-_Data_and_Statistics QTI.zip)

      Some additional details or subtasks for both Blackboard and QTI should be created if either of these tasks were to be further worked on.

      Additionally, I believe that there should only be one single place to import content rather than the 3 places now. This seems like it would make it very confusing for instructors where they can import, so this would be another (semi-large) refactoring task.
