I would like there to be a setting to force viewers to watch the video with a quiz, instead of being able to skip around it.

Right now if a video has a quiz a user can chose "Watch with out quiz". This limits the effectiveness of the video as a trackable learning option. I would like to force users that view the video to have to take the quizes with in the video for tracking and rentention. Please add this to your awesome product.

Thank you for the suggestion Collin. We will take this into consideration. Would you be willing to talk with us directly about how you are using quizzing so we can better understand your needs? If so, you can contact me directly at s.lovellette@techsmith.com and we can set something up.

I stumbled across this because I have faculty who also want to force the quizzes on their audience.

Hi, I'd like to echo Collin"s request to be able to disable the quiz opt out function. In some cases, pedagogically important to force users to take the quiz.... very important feature for my work, and I'd love to contact you directly Shane, if that's ok too.

Yes, there seems little point developing the quizzing feature at all unless there's a way to force users to take certain quizzes.

I also agree.  Right now, I cannot effectively use the quiz feature to track usage (by the entered name and email) because the user is able to opt out of taking the quiz.  Is there any other way to track usage by requiring a name and email to watch the video and track that without a quiz?

I also agree that this should be an option.

I teach classes that require a certain amount of contact hours to remain certified in a career field.  If I provide the option of taking a class via a screencast, I need to ensure they watched the entire screencast to certify they received the required contact hours.   

I cannot implement some screencast training until I can verify successful viewing.

I realize this is an old post, but would also like to have this option to force users to watch the video WITH the quiz. Having the option to watch without on the first viewing defeats the purpose of embedded quizzes. I could see that as an option after the user has completed the video, but not before. Thanks for consideration of this feature enhancement.
