This allows the client to see assessment question link, answer, result and topic score data for a given assessment.

Default record

The Assessments feed includes a default record that is used in instances when data from certain records does not have an assigned value. If you're creating reports from records in this feed, you will see one more record than you expect, this extra record being the default record. To filter out the default record from any reports you generate, filter to only include records that contain an AssessmentKey with a value greater than 0. The default record is:

<d:AssessmentKey m:type="Edm.Int32">-1</d:AssessmentKey>
<d:PerceptionAssessmentMID m:type="Edm.Int32">-1</d:PerceptionAssessmentMID>
<d:PerceptionAssessmentLID m:type="Edm.Int32">-1</d:PerceptionAssessmentLID>
<d:RevisionNumber m:type="Edm.Int32">-1</d:RevisionNumber>
