Customize print result for quiz

I have created a survey essay that allows you to enter a long text in the answer box. I have actionned the print result for that essay. When trying to print it, I get my text posted in the student answer column and I am able to print it. ( the text is about half of a regular 8.5 x11 page). The only problem with this is that my column is narrow but very long. It is about a column of 2 inches wide but is about 4 pages long. How can I customize this printing report?

 

Thanks

Hi Guys!

I have a question for Peter. I'm Polish, so I'm trying to customize Articulate to my language needs. I have one problem though - I can't seem to change one part of the results print out - results (it's "passed" or "failed"). I've read the guide (http://daveperso.mediaenglishonline.com/2009/03/11/customizing-the-printed-results-in-quizmaker-09/) but I can't find the answer there. I'm able to translate every other bit of this result print out - but not this one. Could you help me guys?

Thanking in advance. Regards,

Paul

Hi Paul, welcome to Heroes!

I received your PM as well, but wanted to reply to you here so that others might be able to benefit from your question. If I'm understanding your question correctly, I think subheading #8 from this link is what you're looking for:

If you're looking to change something else on the results slide, please feel free to attach a screenshot so that I can get a better idea of exactly what you're hoping to do. Thanks, and I hope that's helpful!

I'm struggling with the instructions to customize the report. First I have multiple printable quizzes in a single Presenter file. Second, I'm not seeing the report file at all. I publish to LMS so is this in my zip file or in the stand alone file? I can find the swf but never the report.html file. When I search for report.html, it does come up but when I open it, I'm only receiving a Date/Time view on a web page attached.

Hi Daniel,

I'm very new to Storyline, just started my first real project this week.  I want to remove the Passing Score and Result from my printed results.  I used your method above and it seemed like it should work, but when I click Print Results, the only thing that comes up is the Date/Time header box.  Everything else is gone. 

I'm guessing it has to do with your comment in your first responce "(Please note that this method is not supported by Articulate.)"

I don't have Quizmaker, just Storyline.  Is that why I'm not able to make it work?  Is there something I can do in Storyline to remove the Passing Score and Results from the print out? 

Thanks,

Debbie

Thanks for the quick responce Peter. 

I have allowed the users to review their results.  Here is what I have selected:

When I publish that, here I get:

I downloaded the reports.html file mentioned above and replaced the original published reports.html file.  I made no edits to the reports.html file that I downloaded.  Here is what I get:

 I get the same screen when I try to hide sections 12, 13 16 and 17 in the downloaded resluts.html file.

Any suggestions?

Cancle my last post. I made it work!

Thank you!


How?

Ken,

I was able to remove various sections on the results screen by going into the reports.html file that's created when you publish. Once I opened that file using Notepad, I placed "//" before lines that began with "document.write". I did this in multiple locations to remove different sections. I can show you exactly which sections were removed and how I removed them if you like.

I've run into another problem with customizing my printed results screen. Rather than showing the user their percent scored, I want to show them the actual number they scored. Does anyone know how to change this on the report.html file? I'm pretty certain I need to change the following line

document.write("

" + g_listQuizzes[g_oPrintOptions.strMainQuizId].nPtScore + "

but I'm not sure what to change in order for it to be the number scored and not the percentage.
