Camtasia Studio 9 - 'Ratings' function please!

The 'quiz' functionality in CS9 is really helpful.  I create a lot of training videos on my organisation and these really help me validate my viewers learning path.

However I have no idea how MY videos are being received?  Whether I could improve them?  Or even whether the format that I use is helpful?  It would be great to have a 'Rating' function, similar to the quiz, but to allow a certain question to be graded or rated.  Some default questions could be added.....
"Was this video helpful?"  Like/Unlike......
"Do you like learning this way?"  Yes/No.  
"Do you think this is a good way to learn?" Strongly agree/Agree/Neither A nor D/Disagree/ Strongly disagree.

The email function with the results would obviously be a great additional too, and this would be beneficial to ensure my videos remain relevant, targeted and effective.

The quiz can be used to a certain extent, but really only the 'free text reply' question can be used.  The other question type demand a right or a wrong answer.

Please consider adding this functionality!!

Hi there


I'm a bit confused how this would be different than simply using questions.


For example: "Was this video helpful?" seems to be a binary choice. Either it was or it wasn't. The True/False question would seem to fit that need.

Same for the: "Do you like learning this way?".

And the last question: "Do you think this is a good way to learn?" could easily be handled using a multiple choice question.


So it seems to me that the functionality you are asking for already exists. You simply need to use it. ;)


Cheers... Rick :)

I'm not sure I'm understanding your statement:

Because all the question types apart from free text demand a right and a wrong answer being identified, so the quiz an be marked.

Are you saying that you dislike being forced to choose an answer? You want the ability to allow the user to not interact and just skip the question if they want?

Cheers... Rick :)

As the CREATOR of the quiz I am forced to identify which answers are the correct ones. Which means that as the END USER completes the quiz, they may well be presented with the feedback "incorrect" if they answer 'no' to the question "was this video helpful?".

Are you with me yet?!

Ahh okay, gotcha.

So since all you want is feedback, you don't want anything showing that indicates or suggests there is a "right" or a "wrong" answer.

I note that when you are configuring the quiz itself you are offered an option to choose whether or not the quiz reports answers.



With these settings cleared, there is no forced selection of a "Correct" answer and no feedback for the end user to see. In effect, a survey.

Now, if you do choose to have a question as part of a scored survey, you do have an option to turn off the feedback on individual questions.



Cheers... Rick :)

Right, I have had  a chance to test this, this morning.  And Yes, this function in disabling the feedback but makes it more like a survey and will suit nicely.  Thank you for your help.

Curious about the quiz feature?
1. After creating a quiz in the editing video, 
several files are created. 
If I upload the generated html file to the bulletin board, 
I want to know whether other files should be uploaded or not.

2. Can I set the duration when I create a quiz?
That is to say, a function that allows you to set a week only !!
Because I have to decide the duration of the quiz 
and submit the quiz within the period.
