Articulate Storyline 3 Text Entry reference only return the word before space

Nov 27, 2018

Hello all, I have the learner enter their names on the very first slide. Then if they pass the test, they will be able to print a certificate. 

However, the name referred on the success layer of the quiz result would only display the first name, sometimes even only the first five letters of the first name, although in the text entry I entered the full name. 

While I am trying to create a simplified version to attach to this question, I found that if I delete 14 out of 15 questions from my quiz, then the name showed up correctly. So it seems making no sense to attach my simplified version here. But just in case, please see the attachment.

I don't have SL3 yet, but you mentioned having to delete quiz questions to get it to work.

I'm wondering if you might be overloading SCORM's suspend_data field by Storyline trying to save too much data to it.

Are you publishing to SCORM 2004 3rd or 4th Edition, or SCORM 1.2?

If you exceed these limits, you can see all sorts of issues with your variables.

The SCORM specs give the following lengths for the suspend_data element:

Spec                   /                      Characters
SCORM 1.2                                   4,096
SCORM 2004 2nd Edition          4,000
SCORM 2004 3rd Edition          64,000
SCORM 2004 4th Edition          64,000
