get no Question-Text in LMS Report - instead I receive only this sh****: Scene1_QuestionDraw11_Slide1_MultiResponse_0_0

Apr 10, 2016



I am using:

1.) Articulate Storyline 2 and

2.) SumTotal


When I run a report I only get something like this "Scene1_QuestionDraw11_Slide1_MultiResponse_0_0" for every question text - this is not very helpful to "read" a report - so I have to export it in EXC and use "VLOOKUP" to "translate" this into real text someone can understand - this is bullsh***.


a.)Why is Articulate not send the Question-Text to the LMS?

b.) How can i fix this problem?


This is really a problem ... useless software package ...

Hi Theo, 

I'd agree with Matthew that you may want to look at different LMS publishing options, as it's up to the LMS to read the information as you shared and based on the quiz data that Storyline reports to report something back to you as the administrator that you're able to utilize it. The SCORM 2004 set up reports the question text itself vs. what you've shared above which is question type and how the user answered. 

If you'd like to see more information about what Storyline is sending to your LMS you could look at enabling LMS debug mode and then you'll be able to see the information transmitted to your LMS.

For all others who have this problem:


1.) Create in Articulate
2.) Export as SCORM 2004 3rd Edition
When you run a report in Sumtotal the field QuestionText shows this strange thing ".. Scene1_QuestionDraw11.." BUT

AND THIS IS THE SOLUTION: Ther is now another field you can choose from to show in the list called (again) "Question Text"  but this will show you the "real question" text ...
