Creating a variable to trigger if Learner closes browser and exits course during Assessment
Apr 02, 2019
Hi. I'm using Storyline 3 for a HTML5 course with multiple strands, Assessment Pools and results slides. The course set to 'Always Resume' and is published on a Sum Total LMS.
The issue is:
If a Learner exits the course in the middle of the Assessment by closing the Browser window, they return to the same Question when resuming the course. However, their response to the Questions they attempted prior to closing the browser are lost, so when they resume, their score is calculated based on the questions they attempt after re-starting the course.
For example, if you close the browser on Q3, you return to Q3 when resuming, but your score is only based on the remaining 7 questions you attempt (the score from the 3 questions you attempted prior to closing the browser are not captured in the results) which creates in strange scores on the Results Slide.
I'm sure this can be resolved using triggers/variables, but how does Storyline know if the Learner has exited the course by closing their browser.
Is there a way of forcing a Learner to return to the 'Welcome To Assessment' page if they close their browser in the middle of the Assessment?
Or can I create a trigger based on a variable which goes something along the lines of:
Variable = True
Variable changes to False if User exits course
If variable is False, the course returns to the 'Welcome to Assessment Page' (where all scores are re-set to zero) when course is resumed.
