I’m a new Articulate ’09 user. Using a powerpoint, I created a quiz in Publisher and saved it as a Scorm zip file. I uploaded the file into my SumTotal LMS and took the quiz. SumTotal only kept a pass/fail record and did not retain the quiz score. Anybody have advice to correct this ?

@Loreli: Have you checked with SumTotal about the issue? Sounds like it may be something on their end. Also, this blog entry is a good place to start. Our support team can also help you out to determine if the issue is on our end or SumTotal’s.

I did contact Sumtotal and they were not able to suggest a resolution. So I just kept playing with Articulate. I did manage to fix the problem myself. I found that when the quiz was created within the Publisher mode, the score never transferred. But when I created the quiz first within QuizMaker…save it and add it into the ppt via Publisher, the score transferred. Thanks for your feedback ! Have a great week.

How can I add two multimedia properties on 1 engage process interaction slide?

Hi Yvette!

Only one media file is supported per step in an interaction. If you’d like to see the option for multiple meda files in the future, please feel free to submit a feature request:


Thanks for the input!
