Recovering information from a survey quiz

Dec 03, 2012

Hi I have articulate engage and quiz operating within moodle on a course and I want the students to be able to access the essay submission that they have submitted in the quizmaker survey question.  I understand this can be done if using moodle's own quiz programme however I would like to use the quiz within Articulate but do not know how to allow the students to recover this data.

Good morning Pauline,

One option would be to have the user send the information to their own email address, so they have a copy of what they submitted in your course's survey. 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. 

However, 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 this article.

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:

Have a look and let me know if this helps with what you're trying to accomplish.
