The IMS Question & Test Interoperability (QTI) specification has existed for many years, and there are a few tools for authoring questions in early versions of the specification. However, the new QTIv2 specification was unsupported in any existing authoring environment. The AQuRate project was funded by JISC’s capital project program to fill this gap. AQuRate is one of three JISC projects, which together aimed to support the whole e-assessment process, from authoring (AQuRate at Kingston University) to storage (Minibix at Cambridge) and finally to a delivery/assessment development (ASDEL at Southampton). This paper considers issues raised during the creation of the tool: data modelling, graphical user interface design, and use cases. It ends raising issues currently effecting on-going development.
