Today, we're going to take a quick look at how to use the xAPI features in our Checkbox Knowledge check template.

In this file, the user responds to a question by selecting any of several checkboxes on screen, then pressing submit.

When the user initially checks a box on screen, a statement like the following will be sent.
When they uncheck a box, a similar statement - with unchceked as the verb - will be sent.

Finally, when the user presses the submit button, a mastered or failed statement, including a success result will be sent.

Each of these statements are contextually related to some values you enter for the course identifier.
This makes them easy to sort and filter, and provides some nice visualization in the analytics dashboard of your LRS.

To use our statements, navigate to the "advanced actions" tab.
Statements for each checkbox are located on each of the checkbox actions.
The result actions can be found in the check_answer action, on the show feedback tab.
Each of these are conditionals - so check both parts of the statement.

Edit the details on these actions, making sure to update each.
Check out our xAPI overview video for more details on these details.

Once you edit those values, your file is set up and ready to go.

From here, you'll need to publish and launch your files to see statements.
