Provide Candidate ID to Question Writer Tracker[edit]

This feature is useful if you are sending quiz takers to Question Writer Tracker, and want to be sure that the score is recorded against a particular id number.

You can include their ID in the URL you send to them and it will be automatically embedded in the quiz.


Example: If your quiz location is http ://www.questionwritertracker.com/quiz/47/H4P9E3K7.html

you can embed the user id like this http ://www.questionwritertracker.com/quiz/47/myuserid/H4P9E3K7.html


The candidate will show up on your reports as 'myuserid' regardless of what they enter as an id.

You can also untick the User id box in Quiz Properties - Introduction so that the participant is not asked to provide any id.


This technique works with one time use tokens too.


It is usually a good idea to launch a new window without an address bar when using this technique so that the user can't change the URL.
