How can I Disable Quiz Skip Option - CS8

Is it possible to disable the "Watch video only - No Quiz" option, when using Quiz in a video?

This option appears when video starts, where email address is required. (This email form should be also possible to configure, to appears only at the end of the video...).

Hi Cláudio,

Thank you for your feedback. There isn't a way to disable that button if you require a user to enter their information. We'll take your suggestion into consideration and in the future could make that part of the configuration.

We currently require a user to input their information upfront because we store the users answers after each set of questions are answered. This way we can capture partial quiz results if they leave the video early.

Hi Ben,

Thanks for you answers.

Otherwise if why don't require user information, is it possible to disable the skip button?

I understand why require the input upfront, I only felt a little aggressive starting like that, at the end it will be more cool and smooth.

Correct. If you do not require the user to input their information, they will not see that window at all when they start the video.

Ok, but for me it's important both: know who answered the Quiz and with what answer, and need the answer mandatory.

Hope this can be configured in a near future. :)

Thanks,
Cláudio.

I concur with Claudio.  We need the option to disable the skip quiz feature.  When requiring employees to watch a training video that includes quizzing I need to be able to remove that option to avoid confusion.


Thanks,

Paul

Hello Paul,

There is a JavaScript setting that will allow you to remove the skip option.  Currently it isn't exposed in Camtasia Studio 8, but you can add it to any Camtasia Studio 8 production.

1) Open the folder of a production.
2) Open the <production-name>_player.html
3) Locate the section that contains the player JavaScript settings.
4) Add this: TSC.quizModel.setAllowSkipQuiz(false);
5) Save file.

Hope that helps,
Ben

function setup(TSC) {            TSC.playerConfiguration.setFlashPlayerSwf("01-GrogsWorld-QRH-E-2153_controller.swf");
             TSC.playerConfiguration.addMediaSrc("01-GrogsWorld-QRH-E-2153.mp4");
             TSC.playerConfiguration.setXMPSrc("01-GrogsWorld-QRH-E-2153_config.xml");
             TSC.playerConfiguration.setConfigurationSrc("skins/configuration_classic.xml");
             TSC.playerConfiguration.setAutoHideControls(true);
             TSC.playerConfiguration.setBackgroundColor("#008080");

Those suggestions are beyond my ability.  I don't think I have the option to edit the HTML settings when hosting it on the ScreenCast player anyway.  Can't Techsmith just update an option to remove the "skip quiz".  It seems to me that would be a practical approach.

you configure the quiz behavior in the quiz screen when doing a custom production; no special skills required

I don't see that the quiz control options for a custom production are any different than when sending to ScreenCast.  They still don't show an option to remove the "skip Quiz" function.  What am I missing here?

these is no such option

but if you do as I suggest in the post above [set for anonymous], the taker will not get the option to skip the quiz; you just need to collect his ID info in quiz questions

I get your point now Kayakman about gathering the identifying information through a quiz question, thank you.   It would work but I still don't see why this simple option to remove the skip quiz option isn't offered by Techsmith. Hopefully they gather feedback by reading these.

I agree. An option to disable the "skip quiz" feature is a must.
