Terms Relating to the TAO Architecture


George will need to organize and store the various components of his assessment in TAO. This is done in TAO's libraries.  

The TAO Glossary defines a Library as "The panel on the left represents the various Libraries. There are Libraries for existing Items, Tests, Deliveries, etc, as well as for possible Interaction types".

The term Library can be confusing only because libraries are sometimes given other names. The most common these is Banks. Banks is only used for libraries which contain assessment content, and usually as part of a more complex term – for example Item Bank, or Delivery Bank. Occasionally they are also called Trees. Libraries, Banks and Trees refer to the same thing.
