If you do not want to use a Learning Management System (LMS) for tracking the quiz scores, Adobe Captivate provides you with alternate reporting options. You can choose an internal web server as your reporting server.
After the user submits the quiz result, Adobe Captivate Quiz Results Analyzer, an AIR-based desktop application, lets you analyze the assessment report in online and offline modes.
After you set the reporting preference, the process happens in the background and usually requires no user intervention.
Copy the files InternalServerReporting.php and internalserverread.php to your web server.
The sample files InternalServerReporting.php and internalserverread.php are available inside the Templates/Publish in the Captivate installation directory.
Internal Server: Specify the path to the web server as provided in the following example:
The internal server can be a web server of your preference.
You can either use it or create your own server-side file, for example, a PHP or ASP to write files to the server. Ensure that the server allows writing to files.
- Use Adobe Captivate Quiz Results Analyzer for viewing and downloading the results.
- In Source, select the Internal Server Name > Click Get Results > Generate Reports.
Adobe Captivate Quiz Results Analyzer is an AIR-based desktop application that allows you to analyze quiz results that are posted to the internal server.
Use this tool to:
View results and generate reports
Save results to a local folder so that they can be viewed in offline mode
Customize your reports to display or hide the report columns
Generate dynamic charts that visually present the results as line charts and bar charts making results easy to compare. You can also export the reports as CSV.
To use Adobe Captivate Quiz Results Analyzer, you do not require Adobe Captivate installed on your machine.
When you install the latest version of Captivate, the Captivate Quiz Results Analyzer also gets installed.
Launch the Analyzer and specify the source. The source can be Internal server, or (if you have downloaded the results) From this computer.
The internal server option appears only if you have added the servers in the preferences of the AIR application. To do this, click Options > Preferences and then click Add.
On the internal server, the results are stored in the folder CaptivateResults.
