Can you share your file?

The default value for correct answers is 10 points. You can manually change that if you want. SL should tally up to total number of points available, and total points earned, then calculate the percentage on the results slide.

Are you using a question bank, or manually creating questions?

I am using your question templates. I've attached file for you to look at. I don't understand why it is not automatically calculating each of the 8 questions as being 12.5 so that all correct would add up to 100%

Found it. On slide 1.23, your Jump To Trigger for the Next button goes back to the Main Menu slide instead of the next question, so the user never gets to slide 1.24 to answer the question - hence why the point total is off.

Also, you have different questions being assigned different point values for correct answers, so that is why each question is not automatically worth 12.5 points.

Also, it will look like you answered all questions correctly when you use the review button because it will only show the questions you actually answered.

I just changed that trigger and everything seemed to work fine. Hope that helps.

If you open up the question slide and click the Form View Button near the Trigger Panel, it will open up the options for the question content. At the bottom there will be boxes for Correct and Incorrect. On the far right there is a column for points. 

 

Typically, the default point value for a correct answer is 10 points. I saw you had some 10 points, some 7 points, and one 25 points. If you would like to give weight to specific questions, that's how you would do it. However, if all questions should be weighted the same, I would recommend making them all worth the same amount of points. Hope that helps.

Sorry to take so long at getting back to you. We were working with files.
Isn’t there any way to get results to equal 100% if the number of questions is not cleanly divisible by 100???
Is there a way to score the quiz based on correct questions and not points scores???

Hi Angela - You are correct. The percentage will be points/total points.

Are you still having difficulty with scoring after making the adjustments that Luke shared above?

Hi Angela,

Storyline automatically will account for the amount of questions not being cleanly divisible by 100 to equal 100%. If you are still having issues with getting all questions correct and the points not equaling 100%, then there is an issue somewhere else.

There may be another solution for scoring correct questions instead of point values, but the best way I can think of is setting each correct answer equal to 1 point via the screenshots above. You can use references (a text box with %VariableName%) to show the number of points (in this case, the number of questions answered correctly since each is worth 1 point). 

Here's an example of the text: Correct Questions: %Results.ScorePoints%/10

If you answered 8 of 10 questions correctly, and each is worth one point, then on screen, the above text will read: Correct Questions: 8/10

Does that answer your question?

Thanks for sharing the file and allowing me to take a look Angela.

Slide 23 was set to jump back to your base so the user was never presented with Slide 24 - therefore you could never reach 100%.

I changed the trigger on 23 to go to the next slide and I was able to reach 100% as expected:

Your updated file is attached as well.
