Branching and scoring?

Hi there,

Can a quiz be set up using branching so different users are directed to different groups of questions?

The problem I have come across is the scoring. I only want users to answer questions in a group relevant to them and the scoring only take those questions into account.

So my plan would be to ask a survey question which has branching included that takes the users to one of two groups of questions, they would then be given a score based on their responses.

Is this possible?

Yes, I think it's possible.  After you create the survey question, create the question groups, and with the last question in each group branch to finish quiz.

Unfortunately that doesn't work.

In theory it does and you can direct the user off to a group of questions but the scoring is still out of the total questions.

So if I have 2 groups of 5 questions when the user finishes they will only have answered 5 of the questions therefore the highest score they can achieve is 50%

Hi Sharon,

If you have two quizzes in PowerPoint the publish SCORM settings only allow 1 quiz to be used as completion. But It looks like Quizmaker can handle the scoring all on its own.

With a bit of digging and playing around I managed to set up the following:

Question 1 true/false with zero points awarded.

Which group are you in?

Group 1(correct)

Group 2(incorrect)

Feedback for correct includes branching to Question 1 group 1

Feedback for incorrect includes branching to Question 1 group 2

The last question for each group has the branching for correct and incorrect answers set to finish the quiz.

This seems to work perfectly for what I am trying to achieve, hope it helps someone else. I guess if you have more than 2 groups of questions you want the users you would have to drill down to the group by asking multiple true/false questions, something like:

Are you in..

Group 1 or 2?

Group 3 or 4?

And so on.. as you only have the correct and incorrect answers feedback panels to utilise for the branching.

Hi,

I am working on a game and have 10 questions in all. Each question slide has a 'Your score' section which displays the score of the user for each question. For eg. after the 1st question the 'Your Score' section  should display 'Your Score: 10/100'.

I am geting the final score on the Result slide but want to display the score on each question slide.

Can anyone suggest me in this regards.

To get around the scoring problems, I have since started setting variables based on the users selection in the branching quiz. We then use layers on the question slides, to display the correct question to the correct users.

Points to note, you need the same number of questions for each group of users, turn off shuffling of answers and make sure the correct answer for each layer is in the right position.
