Today, we're going to take a quick look at how to use the xAPI features in our Read & Select Scenario template.

In this file, the learner responds to a scenario by selecting 1 of 3 buttons at bottom of the content.
When they do, they are presented with additional content, and a yes/no decision to make.

When the user initially presses a button, a statement like the following will be sent.
When they respond to the supplemental content, another statement will be sent that indicates the user either voted up or voted down the content.
The whole sequence looks something like this.

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 of the main buttons are located on the button action tabs.
The voted up and voted down statements are on the check_answer and close content feedback actions.
In each of those cases, statements will be on their own tabs, labeled xAPI.

Edit the details on these actions, making sure to update each as you go.
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.
