To change a media quiz to a timeline quiz, or vice versa:
You can report the results of the quiz through email or via a SCORM-compliant Learning Management System (LMS).
- If you choose to have quiz results delivered by email, you receive the results through email via the Camtasia Quiz Service.
- The quiz service takes the collected quiz data and sends it to the quiz creator in the form of two CSV reports: Summary and Detailed.
About the CSV Report
The Summary CSV report contains a total score and percentage for each person, per video. While a video may have several quizzes, the summary report combines the scores from all quizzes in the video to give one overall score.
- The Detailed CSV report contains a time stamp, detailed question/answer scores, text field entries, and more.
- The reports are in a comma delimited CSV text file format. This format is best viewed in a program that allows you to easily manipulate data in columnar format like Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheets.
- Reports are sent once each day. No reports are sent if there is no new data collected.
- Reports aggregate data. So, each report contains both old and new data.
- You cannot unsubscribe from the Quiz Service. The only way to stop getting reports is to stop having people take the quiz or take the video down from the Web.
- You cannot change the reporting email address.
