Assessment
We’ve created resources to help you quickly unlock the flexibility of custom questions and added some nifty improvements to extend your learning product’s reach.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
Custom questions made easy
The creative possibilities of our custom question type are virtually endless. We've done the hard work to make it easier to get started by providing a downloadable sample project and streamlined documentation.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
New symbols for the math keypad
We’ve added a variety of new symbols to the math keypad to broaden the range of topics available for authors and learners. New additions include the symbols for cent, "because," and "del operator."
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
Increased support for right-to-left languages
To reach more learners worldwide, we’ve continued to extend language support for right-to-left questions. Bidirectional language support is now available in two more question types: choice matrix and token highlight.
 
 
 
 
Authoring
We've made it easier for authors to keep their work organized, consistent, and up-to-date.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
A seamless item editing experience
The Author Site now offers a richer item editing experience. Whether editing standalone items or items from within an activity, authors have full access to configurable left menu options.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
Supercharged item search
The lightning-fast item search powered by our new search engine has been rolled out for all item banks. Upgrade to 2020.1.LTS onwards to access this time-saving feature.
 
 
 
 
Developer Experience
We’ve lightened the cognitive load for your developers with a helpful new resource and a more consistent user experience.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
Quick-start tutorials
When developers start working on Learnosity-powered software, there's a lot to learn. To help devs hit the ground running, we've refined our quick-start coding experience to be more straightforward, better-documented, and available in multiple programming languages.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
A more coherent design system
We’ve made our user experience both more consistent overall and more accessible by adding our developer user interface to a front-end framework.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Accessibility
Here are the latest updates in our never-ending mission to deliver more accessible experiences for both learners and authors.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
Accessible color contrast ratio for Author API
Authors with visual impairments can have problems reading if foreground and background colors are poorly matched. Guided by WCAG, we’ve updated the Author API to make our color choices more accessible.
 
 
-----------------------------------------------
 
 
Accessibility roundup
We've improved screen reader accessibility for the question editor edit/preview toggle, updated visuals for the table of contents, and simplified keyboard navigation of the keypad within the math essay with rich text question type.
