Help! Users can bypass Presenter quiz despite restricted settings.

Feb 04, 2013

I had to make a small update to an existing Presenter course and now that I'm republishing I've run into a snag. I set the quiz permissions of the final course quiz to NOT let learners continue past it unless they pass the quiz. However, when I publish and test the course, users can skip right passed it. Why?!

It may be of note to mention that every time I reopen the Properties box on the Quizmaker/Presenter slide to check the settings, it resets the "User may view slides after quiz" setting to "Anytime." I think this may be the culprit. I don't know why it's happening, though. I reset it to say "After passing quiz" and then publish the course again, but the setting doesn't work. I've even deleted the slide altogether and reimported it. No dice.

Hi Laura,

Yikes! That's a bit strange. Have you tried saving the quiz (in Quizmaker itself) as a new quiz, and inserting it again? 

Also, and I'm sure you've already checked this, but I always need to ask - are the presentation files on your local hard drive?

If you've confirmed the files are local and still see this when re-inserting the quiz as a new file, are you able to share the .QUIZ file here?

Yep, tried doing a Save As and reinserting. Made no difference. Everything is local, yes. The one way I did get it to work is to go into the XML of the published file and change the setting manually. However, that's a workaround. Still not sure why it isn't working otherwise. I can share the file but would prefer not to do so in the forum. Should I submit a ticket/bug?
