Completion Status and Tracking in Storyline 3

Can I track completion status by number of slides viewed and also get survey (or quiz) results reported to the LMS?

I have a story that has two survey question slides that report to one result slide. When I publish, if I track completion status by the quiz result using the result slide I can see the data. But I want to track completion status by number of slides viewed. I tested on Articulate Online and when I do this I don't get a report option to see the results like I do when I track results by quiz result. Is it possible to have both?

Hello Mary!

Great question. Articulate Storyline lets you track a course either by the number of slides viewed or by a single quiz (result slide).

Tracking both measurements or tracking multiple results slides in the same course isn't supported.

  • Is the course branching?
  • Concerned about users not visiting all the slides?
  • Concerned about users skipping ahead?

I'm sure we could assist with any of those :)

Our issue is that we want to get the result of two survey questions (NPS score of 1 through 10) plus any comment they might want to make as well as track the completion of the course by number of slides viewed. To me this seems such a basic thing to have reported to the LMS. I am surprised this is not available through Storyline.

One related question then. If we decide to go the route of reporting by result slide. Could we have multiple result slides - one for graded quizzes and one for our survey questions above - then combine the results of those two result slides into one result slide? So we could get their passing score for the graded quizzes e.g. 80% as well as the NPS score they entered and any comments they provided (for the survey questions)?

Hi Mary,

Unable to get completion status in storyline 3 using number of slides viewed but using same method able to achieve completion status in storyline 2.

I have used SetStatus("completed"); in the last frame to track completion status which is supporting in storyline 2 and not supporting in storyline 3

Can you please help me out with this.?

Hey there, Soumya.  Storyline 3 doesn't currently support using JavaScript to send completion status to your LMS.  

Are you able to track by number of slides viewed when you publish for LMS?

Alternatively, I've seen workarounds where your learner doesn't realize they're visiting a hidden quiz interaction and results slide which will function to send completion status to the LMS.  Quiz elements are off stage and selected automatically through triggers.  Maybe this would work for you if you need to send completion at a certain point in your course!

Hi Crystal,

I have a similar concern. Since storyline does not support using javascript to send certain variable values to an LMS, how do Set up these hidden slides to send results of certain variables to the LMS?

Thanks
