play_circle_outline Check out how to work with blueprints on our YouTube channel.
To create a blueprint, follow the steps below.
- Click your domain School name in the menu on the left.
- Click folder Question banks in the menu at the top.
- Select your question bank or use the search bar.
- Click fact_check Objectives in the menu at the top.
- Click Blueprints in the tab at the top.
- Click Create blueprint and fill in a name.
- Click Create.
By following the steps, you see the overview below:
You will see the number of exercises that are selected and the number of exercises available in the question bank. When you click Import, Ans lets you import a CSV file. You can download a template and add domains, objectives and the number of questions that need to be selected for that objective. All objectives and domains that do not exist will be created and added to the question bank as well.
Now, you can fill your blueprint with questions. Per the learning objective, you can adjust the number of questions that need to be selected. Once adjusted, the new value is saved automatically. You can now start using your blueprint to generate assignments. In case new questions are added to the question bank (with connected learning objectives) they can be immediately selected by using the blueprint. Also, if questions are changed, the blueprint will select the last version of a question.
Please note that on the top left corner the number exercises in the whole question bank are shown. In the overview of all domains and objectives, you select the number of questions. It might be possible that the total amount of questions that can be selected is higher or lower than the number of exercises. This can be caused by exercises having questions with no learning objective connected. It can also be caused by the fact that exercises have multiple subquestions.
error_outline In the blueprint, you can indicate the number of questions that Ans needs to select. In case the exercise of the selected questions contains other questions with different learning objectives, these might be selected as well. A blueprint is most effective when exercises contain questions with the same learning objectives.
When clicking Settings, you see the following overview:
From here, you can rename the blueprint, print it or save it as a PDF, export the file to either a CSV or Excel or permanently remove it.
Start generating your assignment.
