Assesment Tool

Hi All

We have a DSE assessment that we need for staff to fill out and send their results across to their manager for them to review, Im looking at quizmaker for the staff to do the quiz, but is there a way of sending the results across to their managers and if so how.

Or can anyone else suggest an alternative way of doing this I would appreciate as much help as I can

Welcome to E-Learning Heroes, Annemarie!

Not sure if this would work for you, but you could set up a quiz in Quizmaker that will enable your staff to email their results to their managers. The only catch with this is that you'll need to specify the email address in the quiz itself. 

What you could do is insert a placeholder address similar to "EnterYourManagerAddress@email.com", then instruct your staff to modify this address before sending their results.

Here's a quick example:

Quizmaker - Email Example

(The correct response is "None of these.")

To set this up, you'll need to enable to the email option on the "Pass Result" and "Fail Result" slides. More information on this can be found in the following article:

Articulate Support > Quiz Pass Result Slide

Would this work for you?

Thanks!

Hi Annemarie,

Personally, what I would do is add instructions on the results slide. This way, before the learner even touches the "Email Results" button, they'll know they need to enter their manager's address. 

To do this, click on "Pass Results" or "Fail Results" (you'll want to set this up for both)  in your Quizmaker quiz. Here, you'll want to enable the option for "Allow user to email results to:" and provide some type of placeholder text for the email address. You may even want to exclude the domain, so if they try to send the email without changing it, they'll probably receive an error from their email client prompting them to enter an email address. For example, you could enter "Enter Your Manager's Email Address". 

It'll look something like this:

Now, if you want to give your staff instructions on the results slide, you can do this as well. 

To do so, click on "Slide View" while you have the "Pass Result" or "Fail Result" slides open. By default, Quizmaker already sees that you've enabled the email option. As you'll see on the slide, there's been text added that informs the user that they can send the results to someone via email. If you select this text on the slide, you can modify the message. 

Here's a quick example:

QuizEmail

(Note: I only set this up for the Correct answer, you'll want to do this on the Fail Result slide, if you want the staff members to have access to this when they fail the quiz.)

I'm also attaching the .QUIZ file, if you'd like to take a look.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Annaemarie,

That's odd, I don't see the same thing on my end. Wonder if it's something to do with the way Moodle communicates the email request with Outlook? 

Do you see the same thing when you click on the email button in the quiz I linked?

When I use the email option in my example file, Outlook opens a new email, with the quiz details. I can see the field for the email address, which contains my custom text. I can modify that address and send the content to the new address.

Hi Annemarie,

Strange. Maybe a security setting in Outlook, then? 

Have you modified the address to include the domain, or is it still just "Enter Your Manager's Email Address"? Outlook shouldn't be able to send that. 

Here's what I see when I try to send the email:

It may be related to the version of Outlook you're using, a setting somewhere, or maybe even the browser. What web browser are you using to view the example?

Thanks! Hopefully we'll be able to get this working properly for you soon.

Good morning Annemarie,

Not quite sure, then. It may be a security setting in Outlook, or the web browser. Have you tried a different web browser such as Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox?

Do you have any other mail clients installed (Outlook Express, maybe?) you could try setting that one to default and see if it works. Or you can see what your settings are in Internet Explorer for email programs. 

Thanks!

Christine
