QTI Assessment in a Blog

~ The Icodeon Common Cartridge Platform supports assessments based on the popular QTI format. The platform API can be used for integrating these assessments into blogs, wikis, web pages and social networking sites ~

This page shows how quiz items from the Icodeon Common Cartridge Platform can be embedded into a blog post, wiki or other web page.

All that is required to embed the quiz is a single HTML tag:

<!--add this line of code to your page-->
<script type="text/javascript" 

When the single HTML tag is added to a web page, the quiz items are rendered.

Clicking the "Submit" button posts the form to a remote web service for processing and the response returns any marks and feedback available.

Clicking the "Next" button makes a request to a remote web service for the next question within a sequence.

~ QTI Assessment Tool from Icodeon CC Platform ~

In the Common Cartridge specification, quiz questions are required to be added using the Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) standard - an XML mark-up language for questions and assessments.

The example embedded into this page is a "QTI Assessment" - an ordered collection of individual question "QTI Items".

Each "QTI Item" defines its own rules for processing the response to the question and returning any feedback.


  1. the assessment breaks when submitting

  2. works for me in Firefox, Safari, Chrome and and Internet Explorer - all on Windows Vista. Which platform are you running?

  3. Can see the issue. This assessment has a number of QTI question types that are still under development (fill in the blank, matching etc).

    The assessment on the entry "September > The Blue Ribbon" as only Multiple Choice selection type, which are all running.

    Full QTI implementation on the Icodeon CC Platform is not yet complete (QTI is a large specification...)
