Seeing Quizmaker Survey Essay Responses

Hi, I have trawled the forums about my question and am just gettoing increrasingly confused!

I want to insert short interim quizzes into a course, say 4 or 5, paired in each case with a feedback form as a Quizmaker Survey Essay question. The short quiz will simply branch to the Quizmaker Essay on Pass, or back to the beginning of the section on Fail; we do not need to see a report. When the student completes the feedback, or leaves it blank, he/she would be talen to the first slide of the next section.

The final quiz is all Graded questions and we must have a record of Passes.

I'm aware of the use of Web objects to have multiple quizzes, and I suspect that I will have to do that. Querstion 1; is that correct, or is there an easier way?

Question 2;  I need to see, and send to the client, the responses to the Survey Essay questions. There is a regulatory reason for this, as well as for needing the final quiz results. The catch is that this has to work without the student having to do anything other than enter a response and move on.

I am unable to deduce from all the material in the forums exactly how I can do this.

We use Articulate-Online as our LMS and Studio 9 for authoring..

All assistance gratefully received!

Good morning Jon,

The option you mentioned about using web objects may be the easiest option for multiple quizzes may be the easiest option for you. If you need to track these, you may want to take a look at this article for some additional methods.

One option would be to have the user send the information to an email address, so they can send 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:
