Send Students a Copy of Their LearnDash Quiz Results with Automator

Quiz data can be an invaluable study aid for students and an important resource for educators. Automator puts that all-important quiz data right at your fingertips to disseminate as you choose.

email-learndash-quiz-results-to-students

In the Automator recipe pictured above, for example, we’re able to email quiz results directly to our students so that they can keep a record for themselves as a study guide for later on. We can then use features like tokens and filters to customize the email content (including which datum to send) and create a personalized learning experience.

Additionally, we can use Automator to help our students find immediate remedial assistance.

For example, in the recipe pictured below, we’re able to notify a student’s group leader if/when they fail a quiz. Using tokens, we can include information about the student’s quiz experience—such as how long it took them to complete the quiz and the number of times they’ve attempted it—to help group leaders give their students the assistance they need.

Recipes like these ones are just simple examples of how you might choose to share LearnDash quiz data with your students and educators. You can even integrate quiz results into your CRM, such as ActiveCampaign, Groundhogg and HubSpot to launch personalized engagement and improvement campaigns.

Create Custom LearnDash Reports in Google Sheets and Airtable with Automator

In the recipe pictured above, for example, we’re able to store all of our students’ quiz attempts in Google Sheets. We can store minute data such as their answers to specific questions and broader data such as the number of correct answers. Keeping track of metrics such as the average amount of time it takes our students to complete a quiz and the number of attempts they’ve made can help us to optimize our quiz content.

Additionally, Automator allows you to store your LearnDash quiz data in a relational database like Airtable so you can visualize quiz results in any number of ways. Click the image below to learn how to connect your WordPress website to Airtable.

Front-End Essay and Assignment Management with Uncanny Groups

Particularly in B2B sales, LearnDash group leaders often need greater access and control over their group’s content than administrators can reasonably give.

Fortunately, Uncanny Groups takes essay question and assignment access and grading out of the back-end of your WordPress website (i.e., out of /wp-admin/) and puts it comfortably on the front-end. Using a simple shortcode, you can give your LearnDash group leaders greater control of essay questions and assignments.

Essay Question Management: With the front-end management solution, group leaders can review essay questions submitted by users in their group, access the associated lesson, course, quiz or comments, grade and assign points to essay questions submitted by users in their group, and do a whole lot more.

Assignment Management: Similarly, with the front-end management solution for assignments, group leaders can download and review assignments submitted by users, approve and assign points to assignments submitted by users, filter assignments by group, course, lesson and status (approved/not approved), and do a whole lot more.
