Randomizing Scenarios

Hello Everyone,

My client has 9 scenarios. Each scenario is a situation with 2-4 questions. Very basic -- no real branching.

They want to randomize scenario training, where each user will see 3 scenarios plucked from the group. We are developing this package for 2 different LMSs, and 1 website.

At this time, the scenarios are separate Articulate presentations with QuizMaker for the questions. We are developing a shell that will pick the scenarios randomly.

I was thinking, though -- is there a way to build one Articulate file with 9 different quiz questions, each question being 1 scenario? Or, maybe even 9 different Engage interactions?

I am playing around with this now, but wanted to check with the group to see if this is actually more trouble than it's worth.

Thank you!

Thank you, Justin! 

So for each scenario, I would add a blank slide at the start (to set up the scene), and then ask the questions. Each scenario would be a group.

Is there a way to randomize the groups, rather than the questions within the groups? I want the quiz to begin, and then choose 3 groups out of the nine I would have.

I hope that's clear! Thank you, again, for your time!

Unfortunately you can't randomize the groups but that might be a small sacrifice. If you wanted to do multiple quizzes and track them all in one presentation, you could try the suggestion here:

Using Presenter would allow you to have the user take the different quizzes and track them all separately.
