Tracking of Individual Question Attempts?


I have a company interal client who wishes to track totals ofcorrect/incorrect responses to individual questions in quizzes on a per user basis. Is it possible to do this in Quizmaker or Storyline?Our LMS will track overall quiz attempts per user, but not down to the question level.

I have not attempted to create a quiz with the features my client is asking for. So I don't even know if it's possible. Can anyone provide some insight?

Hi Joshua!

The following information gets communicated to a learning management system (LMS) by Articulate Quizmaker '13 SCORM and AICC content:

  • id: Quizmaker sends a series of data for this string. The most useful portion is theSlide#, which is the number of the slide in that particular question group.
  • type: This is the type of question (True/False, Multiple Choice, Multiple Response, etc).
  • student_response: This is how the learneranswered the question.
  • correct_response: This is the correctanswer for the question.
  • result: This designates whether the learneranswered the question correctly or not.
  • weighting: Articulate content doesn't currently use this item. It'll always be1.
  • latency: This is how long it took the learnerto answer the question.
  • objective: Articulate content doesn'tcurrently usethis item. It'll always be 0.

Tip: SCORM 2004 also communicates the question text to an LMS.

It would be up to the LMS on how they reported on the data sent.

I'm curious if you're seeing this in another environment, such a SCORM Cloud or if this is an issue specific to your LMS.
