Answer selected automatically when the question is loaded

Jul 02, 2015


One of our SMEs indicated that some of the questions in the Storyline he was reviewing had the answers selected automatically when the questions were loaded. The way that we set this up was that there was a Knowledge check in the Storyline which draws questions randomly from the Question Bank. We had 17 questions in the Question Bank. The thing that really puzzled us was that he was experiencing this without any certain pattern. It meant that it was not on certain questions, or certain sequences. Any suggestions or helps are welcome. This one really stumped us.

Hi Ben,

You mentioned not certain questions - but question types? I can't say I've ever seen a radio button or checkbox automatically selected upon visiting the slide - but it's possible that a sequence drag and drop for example is in the correct sequence upon visiting just based on the random nature of shuffling. Were you able to replicate this behavior? Where was he viewing the published output? You'll want to make sure it's been viewed in the intended environment and within one of the supported browsers here.

Hi, Ben -- That certainly does sound odd; sorry to hear your SME is experiencing these difficulties! Can you confirm that he is working locally as described here, and he may want to try importing the file into a new file. If you are still having issues, you might want to try to repair Storyline to address this type of erratic behavior. 

Also, could you please also check that he is testing the published output in the intended environment
