What file formats are supported when uploading quiz questions from a file?

I am importing quiz questions from my own pre-existing question database for my course. My multiples choice questions are currently in AIKEN format, but this doesn't seem to be supported as an upload format. What is acceptable?

    Hi Regan.Z.708,

    Brightspace supports many question types:

    • true or false
    • multiple choice
    • multi-select
    • written response
    • short answer
    • multi-short answer
    • fill in the blanks
    • ordering
    • matching
    • arithmetic
    • significant figures

    but only one file type for importing:

    Aiken is a GIFT formatted file and is not easily converted to csv unfortunately.

    If you, or someone on your team, is proficient at programming, you could write a script that converts the GIFT files (which export as .txt files) into .csv files.

    Kind regards,
