SCORM with user answers saved to LMS

We use WorkDay Learning and are able to save completion, grade, score to LMS. It would be nice to save user answers for each question answered. Is there a way to do that? I tried "Report quiz result through email" hoping that would provide the user answers, but didn't receive any email after testing. 
User answers are important for remediation for training. By giving a score is nice but not enough. 
Is there a way to save the student answers?
BTW, I'm on Camtasia 2018, but 2019 does not appear to be able to do that either.

Hello CP Liu,

I'm sorry you did not receive an email when using "Report quiz result through email".  It is worth noting that you will only receive an email if 1 or more users have watched the video and taken the at least part of the quiz.

Unfortunately SCORM does not have a method for us to store the specific answers a user picks for a quiz.  Our reporting service does provide that data. 

I will also add that even though we can't store answers with Camtasia 2019, we have made a lot of improvements to our SCORM support compared to Camtasia 2018.  Including supporting a user to ability resume a video where they left off (commonly known as SCORM bookmarking).

Regarding SCORM and individual answer reporting to the LMS. SCORM does not support that at all, so in this case, using any SCORM compliant tool will not help you. You may be able to receive a report on individual answers using a survey tool like SurveyMonkey, but the results will not be aggregated and reported through your LMS.

Within many other authoring tools like Articulate Storyline and Adobe Captivate, you can export learning objects using the xAPI interface instead of SCORM. Building in the right coding in your content, you may be able to build a report of individual answers and right/wrong status.

Another note that may help you. I build remediation into the course for the learner to see during the course. To me, there is no benefit to report individual question results and post remediation in the LMS. The purpose of remediation is as an aid to learning, and that happens within the learning experience, not within the LMS. Ask yourself, as a learner, "would I rather receive guidance while performing a task or after I am all done and have failed miserably?"

And finally, you can easily add remediation within Camtasia if you that is your authoring tool. When creating your questions, add the remediation text in the "If correct" and "if incorrect" boxes. I have tried it and it works well.
