10-060 Archiving Course Contents


You can archive results from Tests, Self-tests, Surveys, SCORM learning content and course results, in Group task and Task course elements. Other content that can be archived includes content that has been uploaded to Participant folders, Log files, Topic assignments, Forums, File dialogs, Wikis, Checklists, Forms, the Chat history and Bookings.

The Test and Self-test files are stored in Excel format. The files will contain details about the date and time the tests were done, the number of questions answered, and the test score of the individual users. Self-test data is archived anonymously.

Important Steps

  1. Open the Authoring section and go to the course where you would like to archive contents. You can only archive from courses if you are an owner.
  2. Select Administration, and choose the Archive tool from the menu. In the menu to the left you will find all course content that can be archived.
  3. Select the content that you would like to archive, for example a Test. You will now see a list of your Tests.
  4. Use the Configure download options to the right at the top of your interface to customize how the test should be archived:
    • Display all item columns: All question titles, answers, scores and test duration will be shown in the spreadsheet.
    • Display score: All question titles including the scores will be shown.
    • Display time (beginning, duration): Only the duration of the test and the questions will be shown.
    • Display answer comment: Only the comments to each question will be shown.
  5. In any case the obtained points in the sections and the test as well as the duration of the test execution will be shown in the created excel list.
  6. Select the Test and the options and choose Archive. A .zip-file will be downloaded.
