Can someone tell me ... Is there a way you can check a user id to see which of your quizzes they have taken? Also any way to see how they rated it?

Being from Australia my quizzes often get launched at inconvenient times to get enough coverage. So by the time you guys get out of bed to start the day, my new quizzes have fallen off the radar of the most recent list. (Hence why some of you get a message sent by me asking you to try a quiz, sorry)

Kind Regards

Click "Your Quizzes" at the top of the screen. Click the individual quiz you want to check. Click on "Taken". This will show the names of all who have taken your quiz and the dates among other things. Click on the name under "User" you want to check.

At the very top, it has "Now viewing results for user " " whoever the name is. Click on the actual name, and this will take you to their profile. It has all of their information. Check where it has "Rates Other Player's Quizzes An Average Of: This will give you an idea of how each person is rating your quizzes. Not the specific rating, but the average of how they rate.

Hopes this helps!

Hi Rick, this applies to all other members, not just us Ozzarians!

Click on "Your Quizzes" at the top of the page below the Sploofus logo.
That will take you to a list of quizzes you have written.
If you click on the title of one of those quizzes, that will bring up the results of that quiz. It will inform you who took it, what their score was, and how long they took to do the quiz.
You can sort the results by clicking on "Taken" to find out who was the latest player, or sort by times, or by scores, just by clicking on the headings at the top of the quiz name.
You will also see your quiz-difficulty rating, as well as how many points you get for each quiz there.

Unfortunately, unless the quiz is very new, there is no way to find out what that player rated your quiz.

I hope this clarifies the matter, please PM me if you need more help.

Cheers, Bev

Haha...looks like both Marilyn and I were composing an answer at the same time!

Yeah thanks guys. I knew I could do that but it can take some time to check through 300 takers
Would be good to include a ratings radar in 2.0
Kind regards

at the moment (unless I'm missing something obvious) you also cant check how each individual question was done -- well or badly tho you know for the whole quiz.
Some stat along that line might be fun?

Unless something has changed in the last couple of days, you can click on each name and see their answers for the quiz.

But it would be cool to know that 80% of all takers got question 1 right, and only 22% of all takers got question 2 right, etc. Totally unnecessary - just fun.

It also would be really excellent to know how each player rated any particular quiz.

Yes Exactly! A few of these simple stats is all it would for them to add to 2.0 for us to have a lot more feedback. The rating one is the most importantl. I think you should be able to block certain users from taking your quizzes if they show a pattern of rating low whenever they score low.

Telling players how each taker rated their quiz would very likely lead to a lot of hurt feelings and personal conflict, and that could be disastrous for the community as a whole. A mechanism is already in place to identify chronic low raters and discount their ratings.

I agree with Sploofanatic.

How long do you think you (or the majority of quiz-takers) would continue to give honest ratings (or any ratings at all!) if you knew that the author could see who rated what? Yes, if you loved the quiz you'd be happy to give it a 9 - but what if you thought it was terrible - would you still give it a lower rating if the author could see that?

And how long do you think it would be before we had 'ratings wars' going on, with people taking other people's quizzes and deliberately bombing them in revenge for low ratings on their own quizzes? Or alternatively, everyone giving everyone a 9 for everything, making the whole system completely meaningless?

There's good reasons why things like this (and presidential elections, etc) are done anonymously!

I totally agree with the above regarding keeping individual ratings anonymous. I do, however, like the idea of being able to see each question's overall performance at a glance, as also mentioned previously (Garrybl and Bigbird's first comment). It would be a nice system feedback feature that might help improve the quality of future quizzes.

Yep, I like that one too - percentages per answer for each question.
