Bugfixes
Assess API v2.95.1
  • Fixed a bug where Assess API could not be loaded when requested with a particular version format.
Features
Questions API v2.142.0, Author API v1.53.0, Question Editor API v3.68.0, Reports API v1.12.0
  • Added the option to add "not congruent"(≇) and "not similar"(≁) symbols to the keypad.
  • Added accessibility support for the Drawing Question type including the toolbar, select and erase drawing marks.
  • Added three new events, which are fired when creating, editing and adding Items via the Activity Editor. These allow developers to add custom functionality, by listening for these events.
  • Changed the public methods: duplicateActivity(), setActivity() and setActivityItems() so that they now return false in the Item edit in Activity edit view. The new behaviour is clearer because it explicitly returns false instead of behaving unpredictably.
  • Changed the public methods: createItem(), duplicateItem(), editItem() so that they now return false in the Activity edit view. The new behaviour is clearer because it explicitly returns false instead of behaving unpredictably.
  • Improved the public method safeToUnload(). If it's called in the Item edit in Activity edit view, it now checks whether there are unsaved changes in both the Activity edit view and the Item edit view. Previously, it only checked if there were unsaved changes in the Item edit view. This makes the safeToUnload() public method more reliable when used to check if the user has any unsaved changes.
  • Added the option to add "not congruent" (≇) and "not similar" (≁) symbols to the keypad.
  • Updated the template placeholder for Cloze math Question type to be more math specific.
  • Added the ability to navigate clickable links (that are enabled with click events) via keyboard controls, to allow keyboard-only users to access the links. See here for the full list of affected report types and event types.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented iOS devices screen readers from being able to announce the timer on an assessment.
  • Fixed a bug in which the native “exit fullscreen” button on iOS (specifically on iPads) completely covered the Assess player's hamburger menu.
  • Fixed a bug in the Scientific Calculator where the aria-label of the toggle to switch between "radians" and "degrees" would not be updated after clicking on it.
  • Fixed a bug where the Custom Question type does not have scorer JS provided. In this case, the Question should be launched as a non-validatable Question and automarkable should return false instead of null.
  • Fixed a bug with the Image Annotation Uploader, where a loaded image was deleted and the "changed" event wasn't being called.
  • Fixed a bug where the save:success event did not contain the Item data.
  • Fixed a bug with the Graphing Question type in which the labels for enabling or disabling the arrows in both axes were switched.
  • Fixed a bug for Firefox where Math questions have extra padding at left edge of the validation section.
  • Fixed a bug in the item-scores-by-tag-by-user report where some drill-down requests would be slow to respond, or result in a 500 error.
Polish
Assess API v2.95.0, Questions API v2.142.0, Reports API v1.12.0
  • Improved the accessibility of autosave alert dialogs, by adding a polite level aria-live announcement and allowing the dialog to be dismissed with the escape key.
  • Improved accessibility for our Video Player. Now, the time slider constantly shows its aria attributes, and the captions menu is fully accessible.
  • Improved accessibility for the Response Masking Setting in the Multiple Choice Question Type. Now, more context has been added for screen reader users when masking or unmasking a response option.
  • Improved the MathJax accessibility processing for better cross browser support, particularly on IE11.
  • Improved accessibility by removing role="heading" from the drop responses area of the image drag and drop Question type. Screen readers will no longer announce the heading when navigating through the response areas.
  • Improved accessibility by updating aria-label text editor inputs for the longText and longTextV2 Question types, in order to avoid screen readers repeating the stimulus.
  • Improved JS canvas-based score bars accessibility across all UI report types (except sessions-list-by-item, session-detail-by-item, session-detail-by-question,last-score-by-item-by-user, live-activity-status-by-user,activity-summary-by-group,sessions-summary-by-group and item-scores-by-tag-by-user),
    • Correcting score element order in score bar
    • Supporting screen reader to read the content of the score bar.
Features
Assess API v2.94.0, Questions API v2.141.0, Author API v1.52.0, Question Editor API v3.67.0, Reports API v1.11.0
  • Added the aria-current attribute to the review screen Items, so screen readers will announce which Item you are currently on.
  • Added 'aria-hidden' attribute to the progress bar of an Activity, to avoid repetition since screen readers would read the same as in the Items count.
  • Added a new option to the Hotspot Question type. This enables users to customize the focus state color, by letting them choose the color individually or globally as a default. For the Safari browser, in order to retain normal keyboard navigation behaviour with this fix, you will need to adjust Safari settings.
  • Added a shortcut for the Math Keypad to allow users to enter a forward slash without it being converted to a fraction.
  • Multiple changes in Item editing within Activities:
    • The message "Item successfully added" has been changed to: "Item successfully added to the Activity".
    • The message "This item will be added to the activity on save" has been changed to: "This item will be added to the Activity on save".
    • The message "Item successfully added to the Activity" now gets dismissed when the user changes to a different view. Previously, the message was being dismissed when the Item was changed, which caused the rest of the UI to shift upwards and this could be inconvenient for authors.
  • Updated the disabled state for the back and settings buttons in the Item edit view, to be consistent with the rest of the disabled Authoring UI elements.
  • Added a new option to the Hotspot Question type. This enables users to customize the focus state color, by letting them chose the color individually or globally as a default.
  • Improved keyboard and content accessibility of chart tooltips across all UI report types (except item-scores-by-tag-by-user, sessions-summary-by-group and activity-summary-by-group), in accordance with WCAG 2.1 guidelines:
    • It is now possible to toggle chart tooltips using keyboard focus. This allows keyboard-only users to view the contents of the tooltips. Additionally, tooltips can now be read by screen readers.
    • Tooltips will now remain visible if the cursor is positioned onto the tooltip. This allows the text inside the tooltip to be selected using the cursor.
    • All visible chart tooltips can now be dismissed by pressing the Escape character key.
  • Added the ability to expand and collapse accordions in sessions-summary-by-tag report and progress-by-tag report using only keyboard controls. This ensures that both reports meet WCAG 2.1 Level A in keyboard accessibility.

  • Fixed a bug where using MathML that contained alttext caused the assessment player to load indefinitely.
  • Fixed a bug that made the compass too small if the image source dimensions were very large.
  • Fixed a bug in which the Horizontal Keypad always matched the image size in the Cloze Math With Image Question type. This was particularly a problem when using very small images, causing the keypad not to be wide enough to contain all of the buttons and hence being harder to use.
  • Fixed a bug that added double quotes to aria-labels in cloze text Question types.
  • Fixed a bug with the compass tool in the Drawing Question type. When the user changed the uploaded image width and height manually with the wrong ratio, the compass could not be moved to the edge of the drawing area.
  • Fixed a bug, a JavaScript error that was thrown when using the compass tool in the Drawing Question type on touch devices.
  • Fixed a bug with the image annotations upload dialog. When a loaded image was deleted, the event "changed" wasn't being called.
  • Fixed a bug with the validate method, where the count of feedback attempts was not being recorded correctly. Also, added a new feedbackAttempt flag.
  • Fixed a bug with horizontal keypad where focusing away and back from a response zone caused the keypad to collapse in width.
  • Fixed a bug where clicking the Highlight Question color picker button on the toolbar, and the Rating button would submit the Activity.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Question instance from removing all events when calling the off public method without any arguments.
  • Added title attributes to the Drawing Question toolbar button.
  • Fixed a bug where references with different case or trailing/leading spaces, or not passing a reference, were not handled properly when passed into the editActivity public method.
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't save an Activity containing Items with duplicate references, but different IDs.
  • Fixed a bug where references or titles could be entered with leading or trailing spaces, or passed into public methods without being trimmed.
  • Fixed a bug where the public method saveActivity was only saving changes to the Activity and not the Item within the Activity that was currently being edited.
  • Fixed a bug where Activities with lots of Items (more than 100) failed to load all Items.
  • Fixed a bug where Items from an Item pool with a numeric ID could not be added to an Activity.
  • Fixed a bug where an Item with missing restricted Tags could be updated.
  • Fixed a bug where the calculator simple feature was not taking up the full width of the editor.
  • Fixed a bug where changing the uploaded image width would not update the height value with the image original ratio in the Drawing Question type.
  • Fixed a bug where Question Editor threw an error on very slow computers.

  • Fixed a bug where the custom metadata heading and content did not have a section identifier to allow them to be hidden.
  • Fixed a bug in the session-detail-by-item report and session-detail-by-question report, where the tooltips on the score bubbles could be partially obscured and were visually inconsistent with other report types. They now have consistent styling and are displayed to the left of the score bubble for better usability.
  • Fixed a bug when rendering two item-scores-by-tag-by-user reports, where one report would display the previous report’s values instead of its own if they had the same user IDs.
  • Fixed a bug where sessions saved via Data API's SET /sessions endpoint in the format: from_template did not work with some reports.
Polish
Assess API v2.94.0, Reports API v1.11.0
  • Updated internal libraries to maintain security standards.
  • Updated the table of contents list to now use <a> elements instead of <button> elements to improve accessibility. This change aligns more accurately with the link's functionality based on the WAI-ARIA standards. For the Safari browser, in order to retain the previous keyboard navigation behaviour, users will need to adjust their Safari settings under 'Highlight the next item on a webpage'.
  • Updated the placement of chart tooltips on some reports, for better usability.

  • Mathcore v1.70.0
    • Fixed a bug with equivSymbolic compareSides where it was not functioning as expected for inequalities.
    • Added more comprehensive support in Learnosity Math for commutative property of multiplication. As equivLiteral ignores parenthesis, this was leading to issues where certain correct responses were not validating.
  • Fixed a bug where responses authored without a value were scored as correct if match_all_possible_responses was set to true.
  • Fixed a bug where the getLocation() public method returned a route with :widgetData instead of :data, which was inconsistent with previous versions.
  • Fixed a bug where the setItemTags() arguments were not correctly handled, leading to incorrect Tags being shown in the user interface.
  • Fixed a bug where malicious client side content could potentially be executed when loading from an Item bank. This would have occurred prior to the loading of our rich text editor, which normally handles the filtering and escaping of content. Now, this potential risk has been eliminated.
  • Fixed a bug where dragging a Question or Feature to the bottom or top of the screen didn't cause the page to scroll.
  • Fixed a bug with the height of LaTeX source input field, in order to avoid a scrollbar overlapping the text being displayed.

For example, '7nm' is treated in Mathcore as 'seven nanometers' by default. The new flag will treat that as straight variables, therefore '7mn' (7 * m * n) will now validate equivSymbolically with '7nm' (7 * n * m).
    • Fixed issue with equivSymbolic not behaving as expected with expressions consisting of two non-combinable (decimal) terms.
  • Fixed a bug where Author API couldn't be loaded because customButtons were configured but dependencies.question_editor_api.init_options.rich_text_editor was not defined.

Items API v1.91.0, Assess API v2.86.0, Questions API v2.133.0, Author API v1.44.0, Question Editor API v3.59.0
  • Added the new resource_items support for assess mode. This allows teachers to provide a place where students can access additional learning resources such as documents, diagrams, charts, images and so on.
  • The questionsApiActivity.math_renderer setting currently overrides any Question-level math renderer settings. The behaviour controlling the override has now been moved from Questions API to Assess API.
  • Added support for Questions API CSS styles to be more defensive with custom CSS style.
  • Improvement to simplify the math rendering process: math is first rendered inside Questions and Features using the appropriate renderer, then global math is rendered.
  • Added support for higher quality audio recordings (16-bit, 22050Hz) for the audio Question type. This enables more reliable processing of the audio by speech recognition software.
  • Removed a global CSS rule that left-aligned text, in order to utilize the browsers' default behavior when rendering left or right-aligned text. This should better match expectations when customizing the look and feel of Questions and Features.
  • Increased the maximum matrix size from 5x5 to 10x10 in formula Questions. This allows larger matrices to be used in math Questions and the math editor.
  • Added a warning message if an Item is part of one or more Activities, so that the author is aware that changing the Item also changes the Activities.
  • Fixed a bug where navigating from Item preview to Item edit resulted in an error.
  • Fixed a Content Security Policy (CSP) error by updating a library dependency. This was preventing Author from rendering on some sites.
  • Added support for CKEditor toolbar to upload resources in the stimulus. For example, if you have a chemistry assessment, a resource could be the periodic table of elements.
Bugfixes
Assess API v2.86.0, Questions API v2.133.0, Question Editor API v3.59.0
  • Added the new resource_button capability, which can be added to the user interface. This allows teachers to provide a place where students can access additional learning resources such as documents, diagrams, charts, images and so on.
  • Enhanced the accessibility of the Assess Player by updating the Previous and Next navigation buttons to provide more context to users relying on screen readers to move back and forth throughout the assessment.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the readyListener event to be called after the start button appeared, when the students used a very low-end machine to load the assessment.

    • Fixed equivalence of lists with or without braces.
  • Fixed a bug which didn't allow authors to specify anchor elements within a CKEditor input field.
  • Updated scoring for Question Editor API: Enabling "Match all possible responses" now disables the score of the Alternate responses. Disabling "Auto scoring" now hides "Match all possible responses" from the UI.
  • Fixed a bug where feature previews (protractors, imagetool) quickly appeared then disappeared when initially added to an Item, or when their properties were being edited.
  • Fixed a bug where keypad hints weren't appearing in the Template and validation area in edit mode for chemistry and math Questions.
Features

    • Fixed a bug with isExpanded method so it will validate additive terms to powers greater than 5.
    • Added support in mathcore to ignore trailing commas. For example in set notation if a user adds a comma after the last value the response will still validate correctly, i.e. { 1, 2, 3, 4, } will validate to the correct response { 1, 2, 3, 4 }.
    • Fixed a bug where is Simplified scoring method was validating the original expression to be simplified as correct.
  • Polished the preview and review modes for the selected Question types: highlight, clozeassociation, imageclozeassociationV2, orderlist, numberlineplot, imageupload and fillshape.

  • GET itembank/items: Fixed slow performance for some queries.
Polish
Author API v1.35.0, Data API v1.25.0
  • Updated message to show option for duplicating passages only if the Item being duplicated has a passage and duplicate_shared_passages option is set to true.
  • SET sessions/template: Tightened validation of the session_id attribute. Various elements of the system assume it to be a UUID, which led to downstream processing error when it was not. The endpoint now rejects the payload upfront with an indication that the attribute needs to be fixed before continuing.
Features
Items API v1.84.0, Assess API v2.79.0, Questions API v2.123.0, Author API v1.34.0, Data API v1.24.0
  • Dynamic data now supports the characters " and \. This means authors don't need to manually enter unnecessary backslash \ characters when authoring.
  • Added mapping for Events API to support LTS versioning.
  • Added support for caching inline public methods for Items API.
  • Changed the behaviour of the submit dialog which was showing the close button when the "limit_type": "hard" init option was enabled. It previously allowed users to go back to the assessment.
  • Added an invisible character for texthelp support in matchlist. this will help screen-reading software process the words on the page.
  • Added an option of splitting the js property in custom Questions to Question and scorer within one object.
  • Added a Feature exposing an itemlist:selection:changed public event (when in item_list mode and enable_selection is true), whenever the user selects/unselects an Item and also when a selection is cleared using the clearSelectedItems public method. This allows you to identify selected Items to act on with a "save" button. It also works with pagination.
  • Allow specifying search filters in the Item lookup tables for Activity edit.
  • Fixed bugs and improved the user experience for authors who use audio recording when creating the Audio Player simple Feature.
  • For the math keypad, LaTeX can now be added into dynamic data without any need for extra escaping. LaTeX used anywhere else still requires the \( \) delineators. This allows authors to more easily input LaTeX since they don't need to add in extra escape characters.
  • If the following conditions are met: then the URL will now automatically be converted into a HTML img element. This enables authors that are unfamiliar with HTML to embed images simply by pasting the URL.
  • GET sessions/responses: custom session metadata can now be retrieved in the response using the "include": ["sessions.session_metadata"] option, so the session metadata is conveniently available while processing the responses and score data.
Bugfixes

  • Removed a console error when reviewing the correct answer on the simple shading Question type.
  • Fixed a bug where the sort list Question type shows the wrong stimulus list Item when resuming responses.
  • Fixed a bug where the Tag search options were not displayed in the Item list.
  • Fixed bug with uploading of text file types (and .VTT caption files, specifically).
  • Fixed a bug where adding an Underlined Indicator to some text in a rich text field would break the Remove Format functionality.
  • Fixed a bug where adding multiple empty possible responses would break the imageclozeassociationV2 Question.
  • Fixed a bug where the button to add response positions wasn't clickable.

Bugfixes
Assess API v2.78.5, Questions API v2.122.6, Events API v1.4.2, Question Editor API v3.48.6, Data API v1.23.4
  • Fixed a bug where the save/submit dialog could still show the cancel button when limit_type was set to hard.
  • Updated button styles to be the same in all regions.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Item container to be rendered with the wrong height in the horizontal-fixed region.
  • Fixed a bug where the assessment button element lost its title attribute, when hide_label_option was set to true.
  • Fixed a bug that caused content inside the scrollablepassage feature to be invisible when being used on iOS 10 devices.
  • Improved the stability of the audio recorder Question type on mobile devices.
  • Fixed a bug where entering double quotes into a math formula within the stimulus results in subsequent HTML not being rendered correctly.
  • Fixed a bug that caused auto-generated math content from being cleared when the formula input's focus was removed.
  • Provided a better description for formula Question types when these Question types are validated.

  • Fixed a bug where an error fetching past events on subscriber initialisation would prevent receiving any future events.The API still reports the error in the console, records it in the LearnosityEvents.errors list and sends it to the errorListener if specified, but now continues to send subscribe requests to retrieve new events and deliver them to the application.
  • Fixed the messages reported on backend errors. Previously, raw backend error responses were reported verbatim in the console. An additional error message is now reported, if available, giving more context about what the error means for the API (e.g., fatal or not). This does not impact what gets recorded (i.e, the error only) in LearnosityEvents.errors nor sent to the errorListener.
  • Fixed a bug where requests denied with 4xx HTTP errors would be retried in a tight loop. This prevents overloading the backend with a lot of known-incorrect requests. As before, the request is passed to the caller's errorListener, allowing it to be informed about the issue and take further corrective action if needed.
  • Fixed an XSS vulnerability where inserting an HTML tag with any "on" event function causes said function to be executed.
  • SET /itembank/items/tags - fixed a bug where supplying the same Tag with different spacing within its type or name can trigger a 500 server error. It now treats the above scenario as two separate Tags.
  • GET /itembank/questions - fixed an issue where a non-string array of references or item_references would trigger a 500 server error. The request now returns a validation error instead.
  • GET /itembank/items - fixed an issue where a non-string array of references or questions.references would trigger a 500 server error. The request now returns a validation error instead.

  • Fixed a bug that was causing empty paragraphs above and below certain top level block elements when authoring content with a rich text editor.
  • Fixed bug in session/responses endpoint where a combination of several user and activity ids could lead to a timeout of the endpoint. The endpoint is now able to fetch data for those combinations in linear time.
Polish
Data API v1.23.3
  • Added a Request UUID to all Data API Endpoints which identifies the request in the Learnosity system. The UUID is returned in the response metadata on error. This UUID can be communicated to Learnosity support to assist with investigating root causes of unexpected errors.
Bugfixes

Polish
Events API v1.4.1, Author API v1.33.2
  • Made the retry-on-error behavior less aggressive by batching all retried publish events into fewer requests. This reduces the load on both clients and server in case of transient failures, and avoids compounding the problem while ensuring past events do not get lost.
  • Updated message to show option for duplicating passages only if the Item being duplicated has a passage and duplicate_shared_passages option is set to true.
