Will I get a per-question output to LMS for survey questions?

Aug 04, 2014

If say half of my questions are survey questions, and the other half are graded questions, and there is only oneResult slide were I have selected ALL the questions, my guess is it will calculate a score only for the graded questions and pass that to the LMS, but what about Survey questions? What kind of information will the Result slide pass to the LMS for the Survey questions?

What i am trying to do is a pre and post quiz in the same e-learning, so that learners go through a pre-e-learning quiz, and then a post e-learning quiz, in the same e-learning. And i want the e-learning to pass these two different scores to the LMS, or per-question score to the LMS for the Pre-quiz and atotal sore for the post-quiz.

Any help will be appreciated!

Good Morning, Jay.

As I mentioned in your similar thread, this information is communicated to learning management systems (LMSs) by Articulate Storyline SCORM and AICC content. If you'd like to watch this data streaming over to your LMS, I'd recommend enabling LMS Debug Mode.

Please let us know if you need anything else, and have a great day!

Thank you for this! I am going to try the debug mode option! I hope i will understand it though...

So to clarify...the Result slide does not send JUST the final score, does it? It also sends the right-wrong decisions per question?

I only ask because my LMS is Cornerstone, and I have been having this fight with them and they keep telling me that the e-learnings I am uploading on the LMS (SCORM 2004 2nd edition, with result slide and questions chosen) do the grading and only pass the total score data to the LMS, which is why they cannot give me a report which contains a per user, per question analysis....they can only give me a total score per user.

Hope this clarifies the issue.

Thank you once again for the quick reply. This is something i ALWAYS appreciate about Articulate.

Hey Justin! 

So a (long) while ago you helped me by showing me the debug option, so I could examine data being passed over to the LMS. At that time, as it happened, the business didn't really want such an e-learning so I dropped my research. 

However, now they do....there is an e-learning we are doing where users are meant to type an answer which should be sent to the LMS and be reportable. The only issue is, when I run a report on this e-learning in the LMS, the answers do not show. 

So I ran the debug option, but failed to factor in the fact that it is CODE and I do not know this language. At all. 

So...I turn to you again to shine light on what is happening right in front of my eyes (though I cannot see it). I am attaching the bit of code for the slides that contain the text question. The text i typed in is "THis is a trial". I can see that text being passed to a variable strData though...And also the funny thing is that it passes the data twice. 

So please help!
