In this lesson we're going to see how we can publish our results from our quizzes to Acrobat.com and then see those results using the Quiz Results Analyzer. In order for your projects to talk to Acrobat.com you need to publish it. In addition, you need to publish it to either a standalone application or to a web server. We'll talk about the details of publishing your project to a web server and to a standalone application in another chapter.
I've included the standalone applications in the quiz apps folder in your Chapter 11 folder. There is a Macintosh version called Chapter 11_b, which is right here, and there is a Windows version called Chapter 11_b.exe. If you're following along on a Windows computer feel free to open the Chapter 11_b.exe file. I'll be looking at the Macintosh version. When you double-click the application it will begin to play the quiz. Everything that we've built into that quiz is contained into this self-running application.
I'll continue onto the next slide. I know that what's coming up next is the video. I don't need to see the video so I'm going to skip over it. But I do need to start the video in order to skip it. (Male speaker: I'm going to talk about?) There is one. (Male speaker: I want to?) And we're past it. Now we'll proceed to the quiz. An amaryllis is what kind of plant? Well, that would be a bulb.
This will not harm the plant. At this point I'm going to enter a known wrong answer. I'm going to answer this with the word white. I know that's incorrect. That's all right. I did this for a reason. Now I need to match Column 1 and Column 2. This is our random quiz question. You may not be seeing the same question that I'm seeing right now.
Remember, there are three questions in the random pool. A cutting implement are kitchen shears, so I can simply drag kitchen shears on top of cutting implement click- and-drag and an amaryllis is a bulb. I will use this information in my job. Now I finished the quiz. In order to post the result to Acrobat .com, your learner needs to click the Post Result button.
You may want to include that instruction as either a text caption or as a voiceover. I'll leave that to you to decide. You need to enter your own Acrobat.com credentials here. This will enable the learning management system to match up the learner with the results appropriately. Your learner should not be entering the ID of the person who created the quiz. They should be using their own ID. Our results have now been calculated and they're ready to be sent to Acrobat.com.
I'll click Send to post them. Now they have been posted to Acrobat.com. Now, I failed the quiz. When I click Continue I'll be taken back to the video so that I can review that content. I don't want to see the video now. Instead I want to see my results. To view my results I need to use the Adobe Captivate Quiz Results Analyzer. This application is located in your Adobe folder in your Program Files folder on a Windows computer or in your Applications folder on a Macintosh.
If you want to follow along with me, using your results you can open it now. Just know that I'm going to log in with my account to see the results from my quiz. You won't be able to do that. You can log in with your credentials to see the results from your own quizzes. Choose Acrobat.com as the Source and click Sign in. I'm using the credentials of the person who created the quiz. This is how Acrobat.com is going to identify you as the person who can see the results of this quiz.
Once I sign in I'm able to generate some reports. First of all I can see all of the organizations for whom I have built quizzes. In this case there is one, hansel & petal. I could also see all of the departments within hansel & petal for which quizzes have been built. Currently the HR department is the only one using our services. Lastly, I'll see all of the courses that I will have identified in my quizzes. Currently there is one. It's the Amaryllis course. Let's generate a report now.
There are new learner results and of course I just published them, so there should be. Yes, I would like to download them. You can see that this reports two lessons. The Chapter 11_b lesson is the one that is being reported through the use of a web page. The ProjectorApp is the one that's being reported through that desktop application. This allows me to see exactly how people are getting at those quizzes. Let's take a look at the results from the ProjectorApp. It says that 2 students have taken the quiz. One has passed and one is failed.
Double-click the ProjectorApp to see the data for that lesson. Looking at the results I can see that Captivate Training has failed. I also can see that they've taken this quiz twice and they still are failing. James Lockman, on the other hand, he is pretty sharp. He passed it. Double-click Captivate Training to see Captivate Trainings results. I can see how he answered each of the questions. I can see the incorrect answer where the student answered white, where we were looking for kitchen and sharp.
If I want to save these results to a comma separated file or to print them, I could do that by using these buttons up here. This is my Print button and this will save as a CSV file. I can configure how these reports are displayed. Click on the wrench to enable or disable columns in the reports. You can switch between learners by using this drop-down menu here. As more and more learners take the quiz, you can quickly go to the individual's results.
Selecting James Lockman, I can see that on this question he actually answered it correctly. You can also use this crumb trail to navigate to different reports. If you'd like to download all of the learner results as individual XML files, you could do that by using this button here, Download to disk. You need to be in the Course view however to take advantage of that. Also within the Course view, you could remove a course from Acrobat.com by clicking this Delete from Acrobat.com button.
When you're finished viewing your results you can sign out. Using the Quiz Results Analyzer you can sign in under multiple accounts. You simply need to log out and then log back in to see different results. While using Acrobat.com as a learning management system is not as robust as using an enterprise level system, it can be very effective. Using Captivate and Acrobat.com together makes it possible for you very quickly to publish a quiz and gather results.
