Automated quiz testing

Jul 18, 2013


I have created 8 assessment each with 6 to 10 questions, and each question can have 1 to 10 parts.

Is there a way to automate the testing, so that I can record my action and replay it to see what the user scores each time after making minor adjustments to the questions?

Or could anyone recommend a flash test suit that would be suitable for Articulate storyline assessment testing.

I would like to eventually set up four test case for each assessment.

  • 0%
  • just fail
  • just pass
  • score 100%

Thanking you in advance.

Hi Niteen,

I'm not sure I understand you're question, and since no one replied to Julie that may have been the same issue for her original query. Are you looking for a place to host your Storyline content for testing purposes? 

There is some information in this article on places to host your published content or share it with others, and if you'll be uploading your course to an LMS you could always test it at SCORM Cloud.

There are a few test suite out there like SmartBear, but they are expensive and not the easiest things to use.

For assessments/quiz, I found I could place a trigger, select this answer and submit (at timeline start) on each question.

This can be a lot of work, but once done you can run it as many times as you like, and have the assessment do itself.

This allows you to confirm if the correct answers have indeed been marked as the correct in each question, and that the weighting/points for each question is correct.

I like to adjust the triggers to choose some incorrect answers to show the results of the users just failing or just passing. This often reveals discrepancies in the points the users is meant to have received.

I like to couple the trigger with a variable, "if test == true" (with test defaulting to false) hence the test will only run if you set test to equal true at the start of the assessment. 

This is probably not worthwhile if you only have a small assessment and you don't plan to make any future changes to it.
