Interoperability (Q&TI) Specifications. Within these specifications are the descriptions of the IMS QTI data structures that are used to provide interoperability between question and test systems used in distributed learning. The key data structures are: Assessment, the basic test unit; Section, a container for groups of sections and items which support a common objective; Item, the fundamental self-contained question/response block within which the individual questions are contained. These specifications now provide a mechanism by which the appropriate vendor and content supplier systems can exchange question and test materials between each other.
