Customizing for Pre and Post Testing

Hi, My company is moving a training program from a workbook to multiple digital eLearning modules and we are looking to have pre-test at the beginning and the same quiz as a post test at the end of the module. We would like for the post test to be followed by a results slide that shows a comparison of the answers of their pre-test to the answers of their post test, is this possible in Articulate 360 to show this customized information of both exams on 1 slide?

Hi Nicki,

The results of each quiz are available from the built-in variables in your course once you create a quiz and results slide. However, if you want to indicate on your final slide whether the user answered the individual questions correctly or not, you will need to use variables.

In the attached example, I have set up a simple quiz containing two questions, which are asked as a pre and post course quiz. Each quiz has its own results slide and then, after the final results slide, there is a results comparison slide.

I have created a variable for the answer to each question that I have used in the final slide to change the state of an answer icon to show a red cross (the default setting) if it was answered incorrectly or a green tick if it was answered correctly. These variables are initially set to False and adjusted to True when the submit button is clicked, if the user selected the correct answer.

If you don't want individual results slides after each quiz, you will need to make sure that the trigger from your last question slide in each quiz jumps to the next part of your course, thus bypassing the results slides, but you must first create them in order to generate the results variables for each quiz. If you are using menus in your course Player, you can also delete the results slides from the menu so that the user can't click on them.

Hope this makes sense, but if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Hi Nicki,

Further to my previous post, now that you have the variables set up, you can also use combinations of them to redirect users to particular areas of the course where they need to do more work. For example, if they show that questions 1, 5 and 11 were answered incorrectly, you can jump the user to slide 43 for further reading).
