The release will take place on July 7th at 07:00 AM CET. The downtime will be minimal.

It's a high-impact release and we offer all customers to try the new functionality out with their own data on the cirrus beta environment. Please contact our support at for access to our beta environment.

Enhancements to manual question selection in assessments

The manual question selection screen has been improved for easier use and better overview. The following additions have been made:

  • Added more filter options
  • Added column with learning objectives
  • Adding and removing items can be done with one click


Enhancements to the blueprint in assessments

The blueprint functionality have undergone huge improvements. It is now possible to set the blueprint criteria on Subject level, instead of individual learning objectives. We've also enhanced the business logic of the blueprint as well as the algorithm for generating assessments based on blueprints.



Generate forms

Instead of generating assessments, you can now create a test form (multiple test forms will come later this year). We've redone the user interface on the Generate assessment page. 



Manage items in a form

Many enhancements have been done to how you manage items in a generated form. These are the highlights:

  • More filter options
  • Added learning objectives column
  • Added search functionality
  • Drag and drop of items

It's now also easier to manage your items. We've added to possibility to add or remove questions to an existing form, without having the re-generate the form. A feature that users that use sections will be very pleased with. It's also very easy to add sections by selecting the questions and click "Add section".
