Averaging only the questions answered versus all possible questions

Aug 30, 2017

Hello all :) 

I created a tic-tac-toe game.  Basically the learner selects a hotspot->the hotspot opens a question pool->question pool is set up to ask 3 questions->after the learner answers the questions, they are brought to a result slide.

What I am having issues with is there are 9 result slides (one for each spot in a tictactoe game), I created a 10th result slide to combine all the other result slides.  The problem is I only want to grade/report on the questions answered.  The learner might only see 3 result slides and win the game, or might go to all 9 result slides because they do not answer correctly.

Is it possible to have storyline not average all the questions, but only average the questions answered?

Hi Melissa,

If you have a results slide tracking multiple results slides you'll have two options to report the score and how it should be calculated:

User must pass each quiz

Select this option if learners must pass each individual quiz (represented by each result slide) in order to pass the overall course.

If learners fail any quiz in the course, then they fail the entire course.

Combine points from each quiz

Select this option if you want the scores from all tracked result slides to be added together as the final score for the course, then enter a percentage in the Passing Score field.

In this scenario, a learner could fail one or more of the individual quizzes and still pass the overall course.


It would make a good feature request  to calculate the average of only those questions answered though!

I know the options, but I want Storyline to only count certain result slides.  Although there ate 9 total result slides, the learner might only view 3 of them.  It depends on how they play the game.

If I directly use combine points from each quiz, it does not really average the score.  A learner that answers 5 of the result slides can get a higher score than someone that answers only 3. 

I don't want that, because if you answer only 3 in tic tac toe, you win the game.

Thanks for the reply!

Hi Melissa,

Unfortunately Storyline can only track one results slide - but I know a few folks have shared ideas on other ways to report more than one result to your LMS. 

You may be able to track more than one SCO (shareable content object) in a single course using any of the following methods. Bear in mind that we don't officially support these methods.

Hope that helps and let us know if you need anything else!
