Result slides give learners dynamic feedback at the end of quizzes and surveys. They also send reporting and tracking information to learning management systems, including learners' responses and scores.

You can use multiple result slides in a Storyline 360 course and even combine them for a composite score. In this tutorial, we'll look at adding result slides to a project and configuring their properties.

  1. Add a Result Slide
  2. Choose a Quiz Type
  3. Identify the Questions to Be Tracked
  4. Enable the Quiz Timer (Optional)
  5. Define the Passing Score (for Graded Results)
  6. Score Only Viewed Questions (Optional)
  7. Choose Result Slide Features
  8. Format Result Slide Buttons

Step 1: Add a Result Slide

  1. First, do any of the following:
    • Go to the Home tab on the ribbon, click New Slide, and choose Results.
    • Go to the Slides tab on the ribbon and click Results.
    • In Story View, right-click anywhere in the workspace, scroll to New Slide, and choose Results.
    • In Slide View or Form View, right-click anywhere in the Scenes panel, scroll to New Slide, and choose Results.
  2. When the Insert Slide window appears, choose the type of result slide you want to add. Use the filters on the left side of the window to narrow your choices. There are three result-slide types:
    • Graded: Choose a graded result slide when you want to track the score for the quiz. You'll have options to show the learner's score, the passing score, and passed/failed feedback.
    • Survey: Choose a survey result slide for non-graded questions.
    • Blank: Choose a blank result slide when you need to send completion data to an LMS but want to design the slide from scratch. For example, you might want to disguise it as a summary, thank you, or standard content slide.
  3. Click Insert Slide to add the result slide to your course.

The Quiz Settings window will appear where you can identify the questions you want to track, define the passing score, enable the quiz timer, and more.

Step 2: Choose a Quiz Type

Use the drop-down list in the upper left corner of the Quiz Settings window to choose one of these quiz types:

  • Final Assessment: This is the default quiz type. It creates a standard “submit results” trigger on the result slide. A final assessment can be scored and tracked by your LMS, and it’s automatically added to your LMS tracking options.
  • Pre-Check: This quiz type creates a conditional “submit results” trigger, which depends on the learner passing the quiz. A pre-check quiz can be scored and tracked by your LMS only if the learner passes. If they fail, the quiz won’t get reported to your LMS, and the learner has an opportunity to pass another quiz later in the course. Pre-checks are automatically added to your LMS tracking options. (Even though a failed pre-check doesn’t get reported, the question data still gets submitted to the LMS. Depending on your LMS, you might be able to see how a learner responded to a failed pre-check.)
  • Knowledge Check: This quiz type isn’t scored or tracked by your LMS. Therefore, a “submit results” trigger isn’t created. A knowledge check simply gives the learner an opportunity to test their knowledge and reinforce what they learned.

Step 3: Identify the Questions to Be Tracked

A result slide can track question slides or other result slides. Use the Calculate results for drop-down list to select one of the following, then mark the boxes for the question slides or result slides you want to track.


Use this option to track individual question slides and question draws.

Results Slides

Use this option to combine other result slides into a final result slide. Then decide how you want to score the combined quizzes, using the scoring options that appear:

  • User must pass each quiz: You can require learners to pass each child quiz. If they fail any quiz, then they fail the entire course.
  • Combine points from each quiz: You can add the points from all child quizzes together as the final score for the course. Then enter a percentage in the Combined Passing Score field at the bottom of the window. In this scenario, a learner could fail one or more quizzes and still pass the overall course.

When combining multiple quizzes into a final result slide, learners will need to visit each of the child result slides in order to complete the course. Otherwise, the course status will be marked incomplete.


Step 4: Enable the Quiz Timer (Optional)

You can set a time limit for your quiz, using the options in the upper right corner of the Quiz Settings window.

  1. Mark the Quiz Timer box, then enter the number of minutes you want to allow for the quiz.
  2. Click the stopwatch icon to choose when the timer should start counting down and how you want it to display. (Note: The responsive mobile player always uses the time remaining format.)

Step 5: Define the Passing Score (for Graded Quizzes)

If you're tracking graded questions, enter a percentage in the Passing Score field at the bottom of the Quiz Settings window.

Step 6: Score Only Viewed Questions (Optional)

As of September 2020, you can allow learners to skip quiz questions without negatively affecting their score by grading only the questions they view. Simply check the box to Only score viewed questions.

For example, you might branch learners to different questions based on their answers to previous questions, which means they could skip some questions along the way.

Unviewed Questions vs. Unanswered Questions

Unviewed questions and unanswered questions are treated differently. When you score only the questions learners view, they won’t be penalized for questions they don’t see. However, if learners visit questions and then skip them without answering, those questions will count against their quiz score.

Step 7: Choose Result Slide Features

Finally, choose the features you want to display on your result slide.

If the Quiz Settings window is open, click OK to close it, then go to the Result Tools—Design tab on the ribbon. Choose from the following features, and click the slide where you want them to appear.

You can add features to the base layer of the result slide or to the success/failure layers. For example, you might add a review button to the base layer so learners can review the quiz whether they pass or fail. And you might add a print button to the success layer so learners who pass the quiz can print their results. You could also add a retry button to the failure layer so they can retake the quiz if they fail.

User Score

This adds a placeholder to your slide that displays the percentage the learner achieved and the number of points earned. Format the text box any way you like.

Passing Score

This adds a placeholder that displays the percentage and number of points required to pass. Format the text box any way you like.

Review Button

This adds a Review Quiz button to your result slide, which lets learners go back and review the answers they submitted (but they can't change their answers).

To give learners visual feedback on their performance, double-click the Review results trigger in the Triggers panel and mark the box to Show correct/incorrect responses when reviewing. To let learners review only the questions they got wrong, mark the box to Review only incorrect questions.

Print Button

This adds a Print Results button to your result slide, which lets learners print out a summary of their results.

To include the learner's name on the printed report, double-click the Print results trigger in the Triggers panel and mark the box to Prompt the user for their name.

Retry Button

This adds a Retry Quiz button to your result slide, which gives learners an unlimited number of attempts to retake the quiz. (To limit the number of quiz attempts, see this user guide.)

If the quiz drew a subset of questions from a question bank, learners will see a different subset of questions each time they retake the quiz.

To let learners retry only the questions they got wrong, double-click the Reset results trigger in the Triggers panel and mark the box to Reset only incorrect questions.


Tip: You can adjust the passing score and timer settings on the ribbon or in the Quiz Settings window, as described above

Step 8: Format Result Slide Buttons

You can format buttons on your result slide to match the rest of your course design. Select a button on your slide, go to the Button Tools—Format tab on the ribbon, and make your design selections.

You can add icons, change the button style, adjust the colors, and add effects. To learn more about working with buttons, see this user guide.

Can I Edit My Result Slide Later?

Absolutely! Open your result slide in Slide View. Then go to the Result Tools—Design tab on the ribbon and click Quiz Settings.
