    I am trying to create a sample data entry quiz.  I want the input to be exactly like the label to obtain a "correct" status.

    Whether I duplicate the label exactly, or make mistakes, the results continue to show as 0.00%.  I have tried this multiple different times, even copy and paste.  

    I have attached a screen shot of the Results Page.  I was not able to upload two photos, but I have also double-checked that all Quiz Answers are set appropriately.

    Thank you for your help!

    I was able to replicate this issue also. It seems that the answers are not saved properly due to some script error.

    Hi, Please disregard my first reply. I found out after doing further test that Long Text entry field is not supported for the Quizform App.

    Here are the list of fields that works on Quizform App and can be assigned with answers.

    Radio Buttons
    CheckBox 
    Text Input Fields (Case Sensitive)
    Drop Down Box
    Number Input Fields

    I created a sample form and was able to set the answers correctly, see the link below.

    When you assign/set the answers on the Quizform App, it will show which fields are valid cause it will show a "Check" mark colored in green.

    Thank you,

    Ok I appreciate the quick response. We can work with the short text box. But now when I try that, it is NOT case sensitive. We absolutely need this for the application we are intending since it will assess a person's accuracy at data entry. Any ideas on how to enable case sensitivity on the quiz? 

    Thank you.

    Yes, short text doesn't seem to accept case sensitive answers as per my test. I will submit a feature request to our second L2 to add this in the future release. In the meantime, you can use a dropdown option so user can select answers instead of inputting the text in the field. Would that work for you?

    We do love JotForm, but we will have to use an alternative software solution at this point.  Dropdowns would simply defeat the purpose when testing accurate data entry skills.

    Thank you for your help!
