Quizmaker quiz occasionally skips questions
I've got a weird issue with my quizmaker quizzes in the course that I'm building.
I posted a while ago here http://community.articulate.com/forums/p/6773/38175.aspx#38175 about a challenge with the course where we wanted to reward learners that got 100% in all 5 mini tests of our course. I was finding this difficult because Articulate only lets you track one test within a single SCORM package.
The solution I came up with, which I think is pretty neat, was the following:
I created 2 groups of identical questions within each quiz. At the end of the first group, I put a blank slide on which was displayed a 'secret word', and branched the quiz to finish after that slide. At the end of the second group, there is no extra slide and the quiz is branched to finish at the final question. I then branched every incorrect response in the first set of questions to go to the next question in the SECOND question group. So, if they get every question correct, they never get branched to the second question group, and get to see the blank slide at the end of the quiz. Otherwise, they don't see the slide, but to all other intents and purposes, the test looks exactly the same.
The course instructs them to write down the 'secret word', and by collecting all words from all tests, they can build a sentence which they can use at the very end of the course, where I've placed a quizmaker fill in the blank question, with the bonus content placed on the pass slide and the pass rate set to 100%.
This is working perfectly for me, but I have a problem - very occasionally, when taking any of these branched quizzes with the slide containing the secret word, it skips over one of the questions. A question flashes up on the screen, but before I get a chance to answer it, it vanishes and the next question appears. Unlike a similar problem I've read about that other users of Quizmaker are getting, the question doesn't show up later in the quiz. I can continue taking the quiz, and even get the 100% score, but that is because it is scoring me for the questions I answered. If I retry the quiz, the question will show as normal. As I say, this is an intermittent fault so I'm finding it very hard to test for. I've checked my branching a number of times and all looks correct to me. I'm nevertheless thinking that this behaviour might be related in some way to the unusual way I've set up my questions.
Is anyone able to advise, share experiences, or even just tell me the cause and the fix? Thanks for taking the time to read my lengthy post...!
