Create partially correct feedback response to a Multiple response

Jul 12, 2013

Hi, one of my courses that I'm developing in Storyline requires me to provide feedback for a partially correct response. I'm currently unable to find a way to do this using the basic quiz layouts. For e.g. if I create a quiz question slides:

Q) Which of the following are even numbers?

a) 2

b) 4

c) 5

To which the correct combination is of course option a) and b). However if the user selects only option a) and clicks Submit, I want to display a feedback message that states something to the effect of "That's not entirely correct, try again"

Can anyone help me with implementing this or suggest how I should approach this problem?

Hi Sean,

I attach a very rough demo to show you how this can be achieved.

Basically, I have built my own feedback layers (correct, partially correct and incorrect) and have used trggers to display the relevant layer based on the value of a number variable that assigns a score (10 points if 2 AND 4 = 'selected' when the user clicks on submit or 5 points if 2 OR 4 equal 'selected' when the user clicks on submit). The key is to have the triggers that assign the score above the trigger to submit the interaction - SL processes triggers from top to bottom so you want the score to be assigned before the the relevant feedback layer is displayed. 

Does this help?

Hi Lars,

This discussion is a bit older - is there something that you need help with? Partial scoring is not yet a feature of any Articulate products, although you can do weighted scoring (providing scores by answer choice) for some question types! 

Let me know if you need anything else and I'm happy to point you in the right direction!

This may be really late, but this was the first thread that appeared after searching for this functionality. Here's what we came up with.

Does it work? I am also looking fo the same problem, Multi response, partly getting points for good answers. The one from Dave with hidden slides looked very complicated to me. Please let me know if you are still hanging on here;)
