articulate presenter 6 quiz - capture results for adding into db
Posted on 2012-09-01
I've been searching for days trying to find the best way to capture the vars from a articulate presenter quiz.
- Use some sort of wrapper for the whole thing?
So far I seem to have found several solutions which seem to be for different versions (often with a different quiz/document/player structure maybe) or some which use the send to email solution altered. Most appear to involve altering the files that have been created by Articulate which isn't ideal but I haven't got that to work anyway. Some alter the : function EmailResults(strAddress) but again that's in the created files so it would presumably need to be done for each quiz.
I guess the best solution would be to have a very simple (if that's possible) method to capture the details similar to the way in which an LMS does (which I guess is API). I do have a copy of Chamilo that I've been testing so maybe looking at that might give clues but I expect that will be very complex.
All the LMS systems we've looked at are much too extensive for our needs and we really only need to collect the most basic info whilst providing the quizzes.
I'm happy dealing with the php/mysql side of things, once I can access to the quiz data.
If someone could maybe point me in a suitable direction that would be great as I seem to be going in circles...
