One quiz attempt only and forced remediation

Hi,

We’ve been asked to provide an assessment at the beginning of a lesson. Students that pass (80%) will receive a record of completion after they remediate through any missed questions. Students that fail will be required to take and complete the entire lesson. Is there a best practice or recommended way for handling this request?

1. We are assuming that the assessment will need to be separated from the lesson.

2. Also, is there a way of automatically forcing students through remediation or do we have to trust them to select the review button on their own in order to see any remediation?

Hi Oli and welcome to Heroes,

Here's how I would handle this scenario:

1.  Put the quiz at the beginning of the presentation.  If the user fails, then they go to slide 2.  If they pass, then they go to the last slide.

2.  The last slide will contain a basic quiz that simply asks if they enjoyed the course.

3.  When you publish the presentation, you'll need to select the quiz as the object to be tracked by the LMS.

In this scenario, if the end-user passes the first quiz, they'll then be branched to the final slide.  After answering the basic question, they'll be marked as complete in the LMS.

If the end-user doesn't pass the quiz, he'll be branched to the second slide and begin the lesson.  When he arrives at the final slide, he'll answer the basic question and then be marked complete.

Does that make sense?

Hi Brian,

We thought about that but don’t know how to keep students from going back to the assessment and taking it a second time either by re-launching the lesson or just returning to the start of the lesson and retaking the quiz. Your suggestion would be a seamless solution and more desirable than placing the assessment outside of the lesson. That is if we could control the assessment to being taken only one time. Is there a clean way to set it up so that for up to a full year students would not be able to take the embedded initial assessment a second time? We would need to control this during a federal certification process for over 10,000 employees.

Hi Brian,

There's some confusion on our side by what you mean by "hide the content from the LMS." Our LMS contact thinks that you are talking about hiding the entire lesson and that if the student leaves after failing they will not be able to return to complete the lesson.

I thought that you meant the assessment (quiz.swf) at the beginning would be hidden but am unsure of how the student would get back to slide 2 upon returning if they didn't choose to resume the lesson where they left off.

Could you help clarify this.

Hi Oli,

When I say "hide the content from the LMS" side, I mean that there would be something in the LMS that would see that the content had already been attempted or completed & hide the link to the content.  Alternatively, there would be a script on the LMS side that would prevent the user from clicking on the link if they had already attempted the content.
