Branching based on Quizmaker results broken?

Aug 03, 2012

I am creating a course with four sections that can be viewed in any order. At the end of each section is a quizmaker quiz. I am trying to use the 'When user passes' and 'When user fails' properties to either direct the user back to a 'Pass' slide or back to a 'Try Again' slide. The initial attempt turned off the the quizmaker pass and fail pages in favor of these powerpoint slides.

In testing, if I intentionally fail all of the quizzes, the slide that I get sent off to at the conclusion of the quiz is off by 1, incrementing by 1 with each failure. So, by the time I fail the fourth quiz, I am sent to the slide 4 slides 'down' (greater) from the slide I indicated in the quizmaker properties.

The latest attempt has been to turn back on the quizmaker pass and fail pages, but still having the properties set to direct the user to the previously mentioned 'pass' and 'fail' pages. Incidentally, these two pages are located just after their corresponding quizmaker pages. I stumbled a half-non-fix for my 'pass' results by setting the 'When user passes' property to 'Go to next slide', since the next slide happens to be the 'Pass' slide.

This is pretty clearly a bug. Is it known? Is there a fix forthcoming? Is there a workaround?

Are you using any hidden slides in PowerPoint, by any chance? We'd like to be able to take a look at your project files to find out what's going on, if that's OK. Please create an Articulate Presenter package, then upload the zip file to our server. You can review how to do this here:
