Passing the value of free text entry field to an LMS
May 19, 2014
Hi, I'm trying to get the value of a free text entry field to report out to our LMS but with little success. I have followed the steps of the existing thread http://en-uk.articulate.com/support/storyline/reporting-storyline-variables-to-an-lms to the letter, but I still can get it to work.
I have 2 multi choice questions and a free text entry field on the first slide, and have converted this to a free form pick many slide. Slide 2 is a short answer question slide, and slide 3 is the results slide which makes reference to both the pick many and short answer questions.
I have added references to each variable on the results slide, and can see that the various variables are changing correctly, but the LMS is ony receiving the values of the 2 multi choice questions, and is returning a null value for the free text/short answer.
If I add another trigger to the results slide (submit interaction: results slide 1) then the value of the short answer is output to the lms, but unfortunately I get a warning message of "Invalid answer. You must complete the question before submitting" as I'd guess it is expecting some sort of value to be input into the short answer.
Any clues as to what I need to do to get my text entry field output to the lms?
