Can I have branching from the Pass/Fail results in a quiz?

If the user fails a quiz, I'd like to branch them back to the start of that lesson. If they pass, the default will be to continue with the course to the next lesson. Is this possible, or am I confusing my Storyline experience? I see the "Finish action" on the quiz only allows user to close window or go to a URL. Please help.

Hi Debbie,

You should be able to set this up with branching in Quizmaker with the "Correct" and "Incorrect" feedback options. Take a look at the following tutorials:

Articulate Tutorials > Quizmaker Branching

Articulate Tutorials > Customizing Question Feedback

Articulate Tutorials > Customizing the Result Slides

If you have any questions, or have trouble setting this up, just let me know.

Hello Christine,

Thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately your links did not answer my need. I want the branching based on the pass or fail results from a quiz. If user fails, I want to direct them outside of the quiz, back to a PPT slide which would be the start of the lesson. Is that possible in Articulate?

Hi Debbie,

I apologize, I wasn't aware that the quiz was in a Presenter presentation and that you wanted this to happen after the quiz was completed. Sorry for not catching that! 

What you could do is set this up in Presenter/PowerPoint on the quiz slide. To do this, navigate to the slide that contains your Quizmaker quiz. Click on "Properties". Once here, select the quiz you'd like to modify in the "Quiz Slides" list. Now, below the list, in the "Quiz Properties" section you're going to see a few options here that will enable you to direct your user, depending on whether or not they pass your quiz. 

The options you'll want to modify are "When user passes, 'Finish' button:" and "When user fails, 'Finish' button:". Here you can specify where you'd like to take the user when they've passed or failed the quiz. 

Here's what it should look like:

I hope this helps!
