Import produces warning: “Could not read was dropped from list.”
Posted by Respondus Support

Symptom: When trying to import a file, Respondus 4 gives a warning message like: “Could not read question 11, it was dropped from list.” There are only 10 questions in the file.

This error message usually indicates that there is a formatting problem with the answer list at the end of the file. Carefully check the formatting of the file against the guidelines provided in the online help or user guide. For example, make sure that the colon (“:”) in the heading “Answer:” is present. Missing spaces between the question number or answer label and the wording is another common formatting issue.
