When a user answers questions in a Camtasia quiz, I assume that the answers become available as variables to the system for checking. Is it possible for the developer/producer of the quiz  to access these variables so that the user's answers can be sent to a web server for processing using get or post?

are you hosting your Camtasia productions with quizzes on a web site?

if so, you can get quiz results automatically from the TechSmith quiz service; the service will send you a daily email for each quiz-enabled video that was viewed/quiz taken along with with 2 CSV attachments; the CSVs contain the quiz answer details which you can then do with whatever you want

I am not currently using Camtasia. However, I do host a site that allows students to take quizzes. Some of these have been created in Captivate and some as raw HTML files. What they all have in common is that I have access to all the variables when a student presses submit. These variables are then used to check against the related answer files and results are returned to the student and also written to a database. I am wondering if Camtasia will also allow access to its quiz variables. I have noted that Camtasia will produce a Scorm package but this is not what I need.
