Compliance course

Hi

I am creating a compliance course but have hit some snags along the way.

1. There are four sections in the course

2. There is an assessment at the end with 12 questions (randomized:8) and the learner has three attempts. Pass percent is 100

3. If the learner cannot answer questions from a particular section, he is flicked back to that section or sections

4. Once he has reviewed the section/s, he is redirected to the quiz whereupon he answers questions only from that section or sections he reviewed

It is easy enough setting up the course till point 2. From point 3 is where I am unable to build it properly. Any help would be much appreciated.

I remember trying something like this a while ago, out of curiosity. I can't seem to lay my hands on it right now - I may not have kept it.

I think the solution I found was to set up a separate question bank for each topic, then use variables to track success/failure for each topic.

After that, you could use triggers to show/hide links back to the related content. On the content pages, you could set up triggers to show links back to the test on the second go-around.

For example, if someone gets a question on topic 2 wrong, set the "topic2redo" variable to true. At the end of the test, if the "topic2redo" variable is true, display a link back to topic 2.
At the end of topic 2, if the "topic2redo" variable is true, display a link back to re-take the test.

A word of warning: make sure you reset the triggers at the beginning of the test, otherwise the links will still be there if they pass on a subsequent attempt.

Let me know if that makes sense.

Hi Simon

Thanks for your reply.I have managed to set everything correctly upto a certain level.

What I need to know is what happens if I need only one of the results to change in the second or third attempt if there are multiple quiz results in one slide as given in the following link:
http://en-au.articulate.com/support/storyline/how-to-show-multiple-quiz-scores-on-one-result-slide

How will I ensure that the results of the other quizzes remain the same and only the one that has been attempted again changes. And when the result of the re-attempted quiz changes, the final result also changes.

Hi Amrita,

I can't access those videos right now, but I'll take a stab at answering your question and hopefully I'm thinking of the right thing.

Assuming you've set up each topic as a separate question bank, you can use triggers to control whether someone can retry each one.

  1. First off, we'll use the variables above to track whether someone needs to retry a topic. Set all their initial values to true.
  2. At the end of the instruction for topic 1, you'll need to modify the behaviour of the Next button as follows (the order of these triggers is important):
    • Jump to topic 2 if topic2redo is true
    • Jump to topic 3 if topic3redo is true 
    • Jump to the slide that has draw from test bank 1 if topic1redo is true
  3. Similarly, at the end of topic 2, you'll need to modify the Next button thusly:
    • Jump to topic 3 if topic3redo is true
    • Jump to the slide that has draw from test bank 1 if topic1redo is true
    • Jump to the slide that has draw from test bank 2 if topic2redo is true
  4. At the end of topic 3, the Next button needs to behave like this:
    • Jump to the slide that has draw from test bank 1 if topic1redo is true
    • Jump to the slide that has draw from test bank 2 if topic2redo is true
    • Jump to the slide that has draw from test bank 3 if topic3redo is true
  5. At the beginning of slide draw, set the associated redo variable to false
  6. If someone misses a question, set the associated variable back to true
  7. At the end of each test draw, we'll have to modify the Next button
    • At the end of draw 1, jump to draw 2 if topic2redo is true
    • At the end of draw 1, jump to draw 3 if topic3redo is true
    • At the end of draw 2, jump to draw 3 if topic3redo is true
  8. After all the draws go to the results page. On there, you can use the method described above to show/hide the links back to the instructional sections.

The triggers in steps 2 and 3 prevent learners from going through content they've already passed. The ones in steps 4 and 7 prevent them from redoing tests they've already passed (therefore preventing them from changing that part of their score).

Assuming your results slide is showing the score based on all the question banks, the final score should update after each attempt at any bank.

Cheers,
Simon
