Announcing a low impact release for Friday April 5th 2019 at 06:00am CET, (check your local time here).

Approximately 60 minutes of possible service interruptions are to be expected. This release is planned to be available on cirrusbeta one week prior this release date.

New Item type: Comprehensive Integrated Puzzle (CIP) questions [NEW]

The CIP question is developed in collaboration with Radboud University and is a much used question type for medical education. It tests the integrative elements of diagnostic thinking and clinical reasoning. At the same time it preserves the ability to discern proficiency in various disciplinary elements.


New Item type: the Financial Statement question [NEW]

We were still working very hard on this so it did not make our last release. Using the Financial Statement item type you can create versatile questions specifically geared toward Balance Sheets, Income statements, Account statements.


More info on this type will be added to our article on the different item types in Cirrus once it is on cirrusbeta.
