Build a Quiz with score and time (contest)?

hello!

Could I have some help on building my quiz contest?

We wish to have a winner based on the result + the time spent on the quizzes.

Therefore i need to score the 4 quizzes on points  and on time spent (count up) on all the 4 quizzes.

Setting my result slide, I found how to add and cumulate the points and % score of all the questions.

I also found how to add and see the Elapsed time:

however: i could not find how to

>have the elapsed time shown on the slide (and not on the top bar of my player)?

>have the total time added for the 4 quizzes?

>be sure the time they review their answers is not added to the score time!? it seems that the time is running again when i review my answers... ;(

or...maybe it would be easier to work on an LMS report to track the time spent directly from the LMS??

Thank you for any help...

Merci

Hi Julie,

>how can i have the elapsed time shown on the slide and not on the top bar of my player?

Unfortunately, you can't have direct access to that timer at all, so you can't do much with it. If you really want a timer on the slide, you will have to build one yourself.

>how can i have the total time added for the 4 quizzes?

You can calculate this using the method attached in the example below (see link)...

>how can i be sure the time they review their answers is not added to the score time!? it seems that the time is running again when i review my answers... ;(

You have to record individual question statuses (through one or more variables) which point to (otherwise empty) pause layers so your counter does not execute...


Have a look at this. It may be a decent starting point in your case.

Hope this helps,

Hi Julie,

Building a timer could prove to be a bit complicated. It might help to look around and see if there are any free examples shared by other community members. Variables along with some design and slide options may help with what you'd like to accomplish. 

Here are some discussions and examples that may help:

Here's How Easy It Is to Add a Time Limit to Your Storyline Quiz

storyline slide timer - E-Learning Heroes

Timer or count down that controls feedback? - E-Learning Heroes

Timer to use in Storyline - E-Learning Heroes - Articulate

Free Storyline file: pre-built, user-defined timer - E-Learning Heroes (not quite the same - but still pretty cool)
