    Interactive Presentation

    Jim@Mahle
      Hi everyone. I am developing a test in Captivate. I am having two issues:

      1) When I hit the "submit" button to answer a question I get an alert saying that e-mail is going to be sent to the training administrator (that is me). "Submitting this form will expose your e-mail address to the recipeint and so on and so on".

      2) If the student answers a question incorrectly Captivate 2 is setup to take them to a review slide and then back to the question slide automatically. The problem is when returning from the review slide the program seems to freeze and I cannot re-answer the question or clear my previous answer.

      Probably basic to some of you experts but bewildering to me.

          I am having the same problem as your #2!! This is very irritating .... if you get any replies or find any solution to this PLEASE let me know - Captivate2 is useless to me for testing and quizes if this continues to happen.

          Thanks in advance!!

            Jim,

            There is a difference between the "review" feature of Captivate and the
            ability to retake the quiz. By default, assuming that you only allow an
            incorrect question to be answered once, when a learner navigates within a
            quiz - the learner always see's their previous answers and are not able to
            change their answer. However, the key words are "navigates within a quiz".
            To navigate within a quiz means that the learner is in a slide between the
            first slide in the quiz and the results page (or the last page of the quiz,
            if you don't display the results page). This means that once a learner gets
            to the first page of a quiz and does NOT navigate outside of the quiz (and
            to clarify - they do not go to a slide BEFORE the first question or a slide
            AFTER the last slide) they will continue to see the results of how they
            answered previously answered questions. Once they navigate outside of a
            quiz - the quiz is reset and they can retake it.

            So... the simple solution *may* be to add a button to the results screen
            that says "retake quiz" and to navigate to the slide BEFORE the first
            question in the quiz.

            Regards,

            Andrew

              Jim,

              Forgot to add... Ideally, the best method for sending an e-mail is to use a
              server-side script. However, because of a huge number of different
              environments, IT requirements/restrictions, URLs - Captivate doesn't use a
              server-side script for sending e-mail data. If want e-mail, I would
              experiment and implement a server-side script and modify the JavaScript
              files to send the e-mail to your script.

              Regards,

              Andrew
