Sharing test results automatically via email

Posted by Joan Phaup

When someone passes a test, it’s easy to tell them the good news automatically via email.

To do so, you need to have a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service running on the application server. Then set up your test to associate an automatic email with a particular assessment outcome.

When you open Questionmark’s Authoring Manager and locate your assessment in your repository, use the Assessment Editor to enable “Email” from a list of Assessment Outcome settings and tick “Participant” as the email recipient. The
email will be sent when the participant achieves the passing score.

This is just one type of email you can request. You could also use emails to tell managers how people who report to them have performed on a test – or to inform instructors of people who need remedial instruction. And you are not limited to pass-fail notifications: you can include details about scores and other details, too.
