Renaming a Quizmaker file

Here's the scenario:

I have several previously-created QM quizzes that I am re-tasking for a new project. I copied the old Quiz file to a new folder, and renamed the file. I then made the needed modifcations to the quiz, including changing the quiz title under quiz properties.

I republished in SCORM 1.2, and posted to the LMS.

The LMS settings require that the quiz open in a new browser window. Everything works fine... except that the OLD QM file name (i.e., "Old_quiz_name.quiz") shows up in the title bar of the browser window.

I don't see how this happens, since the Quiz file has been renamed. I also tried opening the quizz ans "saving as" a new file name, but that didn't help either.

Any ideas from the group?

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Terry,

Looks like this thread is a little bit older, I'm not sure if everyone in this discussion is still subscribed to the thread.

Can you tell us a little more about what's happening for you, please? Is the old name displaying for you before and after you upload to your web server or LMS? 

Which version of Quizmaker are you currently using, '09 or '13? 

If you're able to share the file here, that may also help. If it happens with just the quiz itself, and the file isn't loo large, you can attach the .QUIZ file to a response through this thread.

Thanks!

Hi Reiner,

This discussion is a bit older, but I'd love to help! Can you share a bit more with me, like: 

  • What version of quizmaker are you using? 
  • Did you upgrade the files from another version?
  • Are you uploading to your LMS or web server to see the issue with the file names? 
  • Do you see the file name updated in the player properties before publishing?

Hi there, Reiner!  We're ready to help.  We just need a little more information from you.  It sounds like you might be using Quizmaker 360.  Correct me if I'm wrong!

  • Did you upgrade the files from another version?
