This method retrieves the full XML representation of a previously created delivery assessment snapshot. This allows an external system to deliver the same assessment, with the same randomization and shuffling, repeatedly over time without having to create the scoring and delivery asessment snapshots again.

This method requires a QMWISe license with snapshots enabled for it to function. If the method is used without the appropriate license an error message will be returned.
