Hi, we've recently configured SLK on our SharePoint server and are using Adobe Captivate 6 to develop courses for our employees. We have a main LMS program that we use to test our students on government required compliance courses however that system does not support open-ended answers in courses. Therefore we are using SLK and Captivate to create courses that have multiple open-ended response points within the same course. To give you an idea, it is for medical staff to test their critical thinking knowledge so that we can evaluate where we need to improve their education; so we ask how they would treat a patient, then give them more patient info and ask them again, more info and ask again, etc. I get these courses to work fine within SLK however I cannot figure out how to find the answers that users put in to the open-ended questions. Right now we are forced to distribute as SWF and not HTML5 due to Captivate 6 (I understand Captivate 7 may allow open-ended questions to be placed in HTML5). Is that the issue or am I missing something else?

Thank you for the guidance!

I think that in Captivate you need to set a setting when creating a package to enable review mode? If that's already checked and other question types are saved, then Captivate may not support that capability. You can try turning on debugging on a test server to see if the answers are saved to SLK.
