Quiz - Reading "Total Points" Column from Response

Please allow for use of the Total Points field from a Forms Quiz. We need to take this data to enter into flow so that an appropriate email would be sent to the person taking the quiz. It seems odd that you record the data but do not allow use of the data.

Yes. When a candidate finished one quiz and the total points is the first meaningful data to be recorded. But why the function that the total points can be collected and output into a flow (for example, to trigger a notification to the HR manager re the total points the candidate get).

please do consider of this!

This would allow us to build a flow that could react appropriately to employees using their test results.

It would be great to have total points and per question points for use with flows. These firlds are available when exporting results to excel from Forms.

Yes agree - whats the point of quiz if the fundamental bit - did you pass, score enough etc isnt accesible.

 

However while this element needs to be readable in flow - and capable of being passed to sharepoint etc. I would equally say that the forms needs some functionality built to also handle this - i.e that if a quiz is completed and a (configurable pass mark either for the whole test or even groups of questions within the test) isnt reached, options can be set, to make the test available to be done again(with same or random questions) and a set number of rertires - before being locked out, so in a perfect world youd set say 2 tries, each try. could still run a flow to store output of responeses, but on second try if still failed flow is run to notify manager/teacher etc that two failed attempts occurred with score, this flow could give option to reset test for a third/4th go.

This is really a must!

I was thinking that probably Forms provides some APIs capabilities that can be as an interim solution, but did not find anything about it.

This seems like a serious oversight.  What good is being able to right the information into a SharePoint list if you can't include the final score or at least an outcome?  I get that we could basically pull the responses individually into Flow and conditionally assign points based on the answer and then push that into a variable and use it to basically grade the test through Flow - but there are a few problems with that; that becomes really cumbersome if you have more than a couple of questions, and why in the world would we have to recreate the grading process in Flow when Forms has the grading process already built into it.  Like, we if we were going to do that, why even use a "Quiz"?

I'm switching to SmartSheets for our quizzes in the meantime, since this isn't supported. Please email me when this feature is completed.
