      In Trunk, navigate to a course site that contains the Tests and Quizzes tool (or add it if necessary).

      1. Create a draft assessment (a single question will do).
      2. Now, navigate back to the T&Q home-page.
      3. Click the "Actions" drop-down for the draft assessment and select "Export."
      4. On the following page, click "Export" again.
      5. A window will populate, prompting you to click "Download." Click "Download."
      6. The file will download as "exported-assessment.xml."

      If this idea has been fulfilled, then either a) the file name will be the name of the assessment, or b) the user will be prompted to specify a file name prior to the download.

      Description

      When exporting a draft assessment (Actions > Export > Export > Download), the file that downloads is an XML file with the default name "exported-assessment.xml." 

      However, if exporting multiple assessments, it becomes burdensome on the user to know which assessment is which given this standard file name. That is, it's on the user to rename each of the file names after each download to make distinctions given the standard file name when exporting.

      I propose here that the file name could be the assessment name. That is, if the assessment is called "Psychology Final Exam 5-6-2020", then the export could be "Psychology_Final_Exam_5_6_2020.xml" – or something to that effect. 

      This should be possible. For example, when exporting from the Roster tool, the filename is the course site name. Note: I'd recommend going with the same file naming format/standard here as when exporting from the Roster tool. This way, it's consistent.

      ALTERNATIVE IDEA: Prompt the user to specify a file name before downloading the assessment.
