How Do I Import My Test to a Sakai Course?

After building your test, you’ll want to export it from Norton Testmaker before uploading it to Sakai. See instructions to export the test from Norton Testmaker.

Importing a Test to Sakai

Log into your Sakai course. 

In Sakai, there are two options to import the imscc file exported from Norton Testmaker.  Option 1 will use the Import from Archive tool. Option 2 will use the Lessons tool in Sakai. 

Option 1: 

  • Go to Site Info and then to Import from Archive.
    Note: If the Import from Archive option is not available, go to Option 2.
  • Click Choose File, navigate to and select the downloaded imscc file, then click Import. 
  • The test will appear in two places.  
    • Find it in a Lessons tool.
    • Find it in Tests and Quizzes in both Published and Draft modes.  

Note: You will want to review and edit the Draft test settings, and perhaps the questions as well, before publishing it. To avoid confusion, delete the deployed test in Lessons, as well as the Published version in Tests and Quizzes. 

Option 2: 

  • If there is not a Lessons tool already in the left navigation menu, go to Site Info and then to Manage Tools to add one. 
  • Click on the Lessons tool in the left navigation menu and go to the More Tools dropdown menu to select Import CC/CP. 
  • Click Choose File, navigate to and select the downloaded imscc file, then click Import. 
  • The test will appear in two places.  
    • Find it in the left navigation menu. 
    • Find it in Tests and Quizzes in both Published and Draft modes. 

Note: In the Draft version, you will want to review and edit the settings and the questions as well, before publishing. To avoid confusion, delete the deployed test in Lessons, as well as the Published version in Tests and Quizzes.
