Inquisitive is a Joomla! component that allows you to create quiz / surveys from the front-end of your site. You can then fill in answers and submit. Reporting displays individual or entire quiz / survey responses.
Using Inquisitive is simple. You create the quiz / surveys from the front of your site. The quiz appears in a list of all created quiz / surveys called 'Quiz List'. You have the option of editing the quiz at this point. When you are ready, publish the quiz / survey so that people can access what you have created and begin to respond. Your newly published quiz / survey will be accessible via a unique link. You may wish to email this to others publicly or restrict access only to those who have permission to do so.
TIP: You can tell the difference between a question that allows only one answer versus multiple answers because of the shape of the option buttons. If it allows only one answer choice, the radio buttons will be circles. If it allows multiple answers, the buttons will be square check boxes.
Click the create quiz / survey link from your menu (see 3.1 Setup Links). You will have 3 types of questions to choose from. After choosing simply enter in your first question. Answer options should also be entered at this time for each desired answer. Repeat these steps for each and every question until your quiz /survey is complete! When your happy with your quiz / survey, click submit and you will notice it is already in the 'Quiz List' - the list of quiz / surveys. Repeat these steps for each and every quiz.
To add more answer options for your users to respond. Choose the [Add Answer], you will then pop in another one underneath the Answer: text field. [Remove Answer] Removes the previously entered answer option.
TIP! Clicking the [Next Question >>>] button automatically saves/updates your survey with the new question. This way it saves your progress.
Enter your text for the question name and answer options, Create your question and click [Next Question >>>]
Edit - Make minor changes to your quiz / survey text. Change, add or remove answer options.
Preview - Content publisher may review their quiz / survey. Helpful for remembering correct answers. Unpublished & read only.
You must publish a quiz to allow users to take your quiz / survey, otherwise only you will be able to interact with it.
From the 'Quiz List' you will find the following three states for your quiz / survey. You can toggle between Published & Unpublished.
Unpublished - This state makes the quiz / survey available strictly to the publisher or any user with super-administrator access. You will be able to fully edit your quiz / survey.
Published - This state makes the quiz / survey accessible.
Unpublished & read only - This state makes the quiz / survey hidden to all users except the publisher & super-administrator.
Once published you will no longer be able to make edits. ( This is to preserve consistency of your respondents results - Otherwise when you edit the quiz the answers might not match anymore! )
From the 'Quiz List' click the expand options button to further modify your quiz.
Quiz mode - Displays Answers / results at the end of the quiz to help users learn from any errors made.
Survey mode - Displays a thank you message to the user but suppresses answers.
Now that you have spent a few valuable minutes creating your quiz / survey, you will have published it live so now users with 'read' access (see how to configure permissions to 'Quiz List' for access) can 'Take' the quiz /survey.
Users will enter in their response and then click [Submit], an email sent to quiz creator upon quiz completion.
NOTE! When a user finishes a quiz the last response overwrites their previous attempt.
From the 'Quiz List' click the reporting button. From the reports page you will find statistics about the responses your quiz / survey has generated.
NOTE! Only a correct response is added to the final score %, nothing is subtracted if incorrect.
Install component extension from the joomla back-end or update your existing installation through the joomla control panel.
'Create Quiz' - Access to the app that enables creating a quiz. Once you have this you no longer need to have a menu item technically.
'Quiz List' - View the full list of quiz and surveys that have been created.
Assigning permissions to groups is easy. Joomla now makes this accessible from Administrator->Components->Inquisitive->Options
A typical configuration consists of two groups. The 'Quiz List' app should have public or registered access for those who will 'Take' the quiz / surveys. The other group are Publishers, these users will have a higher access level and can create 'New Quiz'. Regardless of your group configuration. The following rules apply.
'New Quiz' creators should have write access
'Quiz list' users should have read access
Note: Users who operate Active Directory domain networks can use a permission sync plugin to assist teachers and students to log in to the intranet website with their same group membership. Essentially mapping LDAP to JOOMLA .
