    Asked by lori_riskconusa on May 23, 2017 at 07:34 PM

    Is there a way to notify the test taker if they "passed" or "failed" the quiz? For example, put a minimum score of 85% and if they score below that, notify them they need to try again?

    This is possible, through the use of conditions and email notifications. Here's some head start for you.

     

    1. First, try to create the email notification. Input there the Reply-to Email. This could be your email address. On the recipient email, select their the field name where you asked your test taker to input their email. Once that is done, you can click on the Email tab, to setup the text message. Note that, you will need to create two of this. One for passing the test, and the other one for failing the test. 

     

    2. Setup a condition to change the e-mail recipient. 

     

    3. The configure your condition to match the score of your test. Then, on the second part of the condition, it will asked for the email notification. On the drop down arrow, choose the email notification that you have created, and it will auto populate the information in the field.

    @lori_riskconusa

    If you would like to send the result of the quiz form to your respondents to let them know if they passed or failed (below 85%), then you can do the following.

    Supposed you already constructed your form and you also included an email field where your respondents would put in their email address.

    In the Quiz Form App, click the "Send Results to this email" that you can find just under the email field.

    Clicking that will give the "Email Results to" the field ID of the Email field in your form.

    You can also customize the content of the email that will be sent to your respondents.

    Here's an example.

    Here is a sample form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71432148268962

    However, if you want a different set of emails to be sent for those who failed and for those who passed the quiz, then I would suggest you calculate the total correct answers within your form without using the Quiz Form App.

    To do that, you need to set calculation values for each field question in your form. If let's say you have 20 field questions in your form then that would be 5 points for every correct answer to get a total of 100.

    Next, use a Form Calculation widget to get the total score based on your respondent's answers.

    Note: You can hide the widget so it will not show in your form.

    Then lastly, you can follow what @williamralloma mentioned in his reply above.

    Create two email autoresponders in your form. (One for the passers and one for the re-takers.)

    After that, create conditions that will send the appropriate email autoresponder based on the total score of the respondent.
