Reporting numeric variables to a LMS
I'm having some trouble with reporting numeric variables to a LMS. I've been easily able to send text based variables using the available tutorial (http://www.articulate.com/support/kb_article.php?product=st1&id=fdoq1b7qv49l), but I can't set a short answer essay answer to pick up several of my variables. This is probably because user defined variable is numeric, and the questions have text variables.
I've tried to get around this a few ways - reset the short essay question to accept a numeric variable instead of the default TextEntry, use a numeric question instead of the short essay question, etc. At this point, I'm wondering if I should set up a 'if' sequence to convert '1' to 'one' and so on, up to 10 ('max'). Since that would be pretty inelegant, I'm wondering if there is a better option out there...
