Allow user to leave quiz at any time

Mar 05, 2013

In Quiz Maker we use the option "allow user to leave quiz at any time".  I'd like to set up the quiz questions in Storyline the same.  How can I let the user click Next and proceed without pressing Submit?

Hi Marianne,

With Storyline, you can set the quiz or question slides (or any other slides for that matter) to resume their saved state. You can also modify the prompts the user sees when they return to the course. By using these options, their progress will be saved and they can pick up where they left off. Is this what you're wanting to do?

You can also remove the "Submit" button from your quizzes, if you'd like, and simply display the "Next" button. However, if you do this, and you need to have the quiz results submitted, you may need to tie a trigger to the "Next" buttons that will send the results. Though, this really depends on how your course is set up.

I hope this makes sense If you have any other questions, please let me know.

In Presenter I would have a slide with a quiz question.  Then I would have " allow user to leave quiz at any time" turned on as one of the options.  This way the learner is not "forced to answer" the quiz question.   This is what i would like to replicate in Storyline. So if the hit Next instead of Submit, they can go on to the next slide.  How would I do this?  I do not use results slides.  I'd like a Submit and a Next button.  Submit for if they would like to submit their answer.  And Next if they'd like to pass.

Hi Marianne, 

So you'd like the learner to be able to move throughout the quiz without answering any of the questions, if they wish, correct? 

You can definitely do this. When you have your question bank open, select the question(s) and select the "Next" and "Submit" options in the slide properties provided in the lower right-hand corner of the window. You may need to select each question to add this option.

It'll look like this:

I put together a quick example, if you'd like to see this in action:
