It turns out Docebo does not log Test re-take information. So if one of your employees fails a quiz the first time, and retakes it a second time - the results from the first failed attempt are automatically over written. Absolutely unsettling but has anyone solved a work around? Any support or guidance would be appreciated.

HI @Ryanmm1123 this is a tricky one...in one scenario, in order to maintain test scores (whether passed or failed), we have added “versions” of exam objects to the same course...this only works when you have dedicated exam windows as you need a cut-off point at which you can deactivate the first exam object so you can open the 2nd one…

Example: Test 1 > allow users to take it and pass or fail > then it is unpublished (hidden)…(and works best if you only allow 1  attempt / object to track properly)

Those that passed the original test are DONE (since Docebo does not push a user from completed to in progress when the admin adds new content) however those that failed remain “in progress”.

After that, the admin adds the 2nd test (v2) and alerts those users who failed to attempt it once more...and so on...definitely not that easy to manage but it does track attempts this way.

I seem to recall that some updates to Enrollment Rules may be coming that would allow us to assign course x based on the status of course y but don’t quote me on this...if I did recall this properly it may still be a long way away.

Does anyone know if it is possible to at least find out how many times someone took a test.  Since there’s a retake limit it would appear that the count would be held somewhere.

We are struggling with the attempt tracking as well. We allow 3 retakes before they fail for our certification exams. We also set them to require and answer for each question before you could submit. We have some savvy users that have discovered that the system doesn’t “count” an attempt if you simply close your browser. We haven’t found a way to control that. We would like to be able to report a score for each attempt but have not found a way to do that.

If only we were officially allowed to run Javascript, it would be possible to attach an event to the “Begin The Test” button that fires off a script to grab the user and test info and pass that through an XMLHttpRequest to a webhook, and from there record that information in the data repository of your choosing.  In that way you would know every launch, regardless of whether the student submits the test.  Plenty more could be done as well, but it all depends on Docebo allowing us to extend the capabilities with our own code, which increases the flexibility and value of the platform.

There are several requests to allow Javascript in the Ideas Portal. Please upvote them!

We use this report to track our applications (Tests) because we need to know ALL the attempts.  However now the report only shows completed while before we used to have a full list.  This has now created extra work for my team because they have to compare incompletes against their list of completed.   

The report used to capture all users not just complete and it seems like other people would like to see all the attempts as well.   If you won’t provide the report in the course anymore at least let us run a custom report on the test so we can pull the data we need!
