Lectora: Best way to save Test Summary data to be recalled.

At the end of the test (if the user passes), the results show you what questions you missed and why you missed them (custom feedback)

Then the lesson closes.
Anytime in the future our company needs to be able to recall that Test Summary page to display to the user, and we are trying to figure out the best way to go about doing that.

Does Lectora have built in functionality for this?

We can do custom code if needed

    you could always have a button that grades the test again - that should bring up Test summary page?

  • What if they came back a week later on a different computer? Or cleared their history? The test information for grading would be gone I am assuming.

    We are scorm compliant right now so we have access to SCORM variables, which includes question answer and question correct answer.

    Do we really have to programmtically pull in all the information? The solution you provided is interesting but I am wondering how resilient it will be.

    I guess the answer may depend on what your setup is - how you are hosting the lesson, etc.  If using SCORM via an LMS, you could have the course report that info back to the LMS (Publish to SCORM option, "The published course will report Test/Survey Question Interaction to the LMS"  (I don't personally use this, but sounds like a good option for you).

    Question property has an option to 'retain value between sessions' (as well as test behavior to retain answers between sessions), so it should still save between sessions, but if marking the course complete in the LMS, I'm not sure if that will reset the course or not from the user end if launching the course again.

    Another option is to use the Custom Results Submission for the test, and report the test results to a custom script or Google Drive.  I use the form reporting to Google drive to gather some user interaction data, and then take the data automatically from a Google sheet to Smartsheet, and it works well.

    So I guess it really depends on your setup, and how you are wanting to access the information after-the-fact...

    @cainam, I thought Google Drive reporting was removed from Lectora a couple of versions ago?

    @CarlFink - I'm on the most recent version of Lectora 18 - still there! (for both Form submissions, and custom test results submission.
