error_outline In order to use blueprints, you'll first need a questionbank.
A blueprint is a composition of objectives that should be used in an assignment so it will correspond sufficiently to the learning goals of the course. This way, an assignment can be created more efficiently to better correspond to the learning goals. The assignments of different years will also be of the same composition.
The use of a blueprint is optional, but highly recommended. The advantages of using blueprints and objectives to automatically generate assignments are:
- to match the questions to create an exam in line with the study goals of a course.
- to compose an exam faster and more efficient.
- to compose assignments that correspond better to assignments from previous years if the same blueprint is used.
- to prevent fraud, you can randomise the selected questions for each student.
- to gain better insights in the learning results per objective.
Blueprints can be used to automatically generate a written assignment or a digital test, based on learning objectives. Learning objectives need to be attached to the questions in your questionbank. By doing so, you can indicate the amount of questions Ans need to select for each learning objective.
A blueprint selects exercises as follows: all questions within an exercise can be linked to an objective. In a blueprint, you can set the number of exercises you want from a particular objective, so overlap can arise. If one of the questions within an exercise is requested by a blueprint, the entire exercise will be set up regardless of what the objectives of the other questions are.
