Hi Alyssa & welcome to Heroes,
Quizmaker is designed primarily as an elearning development tool to be used in conjunction with Articulate Online or your own Learning Management System (LMS). You can track and report quiz and survey results via stand-alone Quizmaker quizzes or those embedded in Articulate Presenter using a number of methods.
For the best results and most accurate reporting, we recommend Articulate Online:
You can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Articulate Online here:
Your own SCORM- or AICC-compliant Learning Management System (LMS) will also provide accurate tracking capabilities. Here are some open-source options for tracking quiz results:
* Dokeos: http://daveperso.mediaenglishonline.com/2009/10/29/getting-your-own-lms-part-1-dokeos-campus/
* eFront: http://daveperso.mediaenglishonline.com/2009/12/23/getting-your-own-lms-part-2-efront/
* Docebo: http://daveperso.mediaenglishonline.com/2010/01/22/getting-your-own-lms-part-3-docebo/
* Moodle: http://www.mozealous.com/upload-and-track-a-quizmaker-09-quiz-in-moodle/
Although email is not intended as a robust tracking mechanism, Quizmaker does provide an option for emailing results. Upon completion of a quiz, the user can choose to email the results to a designated email address. The results are sent in raw text format in the body of an email (raw text is the most flexible and universal data format). The recipient can then copy and paste the comma-separated output from the email into a text file and open it via Excel. After importing into Excel, you can select a "Table" format to organize the data into columns for better analysis.
Due to web browser, Flash Player, and email security issues, this method may not always work as expected. We suggest that you thoroughly test this method in your environment to see if it meets your needs. For more information, please review the following article:
Tracking results via a text file or a database is not supported. You may want to consult our Community Forums if you are looking to track quizzes outside of the supported methods:
Some of our customers are successfully sending Quizmaker results via PHP or by using a database, but these methods are not supported by Articulate. You can learn more about these methods here:
