yes (a.k.a. copy)Assessment also allows import and export using the IMS QTI standard

yes
yes (a.k.a. sections)

Tasks

Surveys uses tasks to allow users to take an instance of a survey. Policies (e.g. interval active, # of times allowed to take) are tied to a task as opposed to a survey.

Not sure what "tasks" mean in this context. Assessment has sessions (a.k.a. attempts)... is that what this is?

Policies
There are quite a few policies designed. Not sure how many are implemented.
What are policies?

Reports
Basic reports
cvs export and very basic reporting of multiple choice questions

XML Output
yes
yes (IMS QTI)
