Import Exam Questions in CSV Format

Updated on

The CSV Exam Import function can take Exams presented in .csv format and import them into the Leo's Exam tool.  Once the csv is received, we will parse the .csv.  While images, sound files and video do not import during the import process, you CAN manually link these files to the specific Exam questions after the import and within the Exam Editor.

Formats vary greatly, so you must select the correct options when you are exporting the Exam out of your external exam manager.

  1. Export the Leo CSV Exam Template provided at the Course Section Level or available below.
  2. Add information in the required .csv format provided in the template.    NOTE: Be sure to format this as the file provided below indicates.

Use the sample template file provided below for more details and examples of how to utilize this template.

TIP: When copying content into the .cvs template use Ctrl+Alt+V to remove any formatting from the source file.
