D & D using variables to pass the score

Jul 07, 2015

Hi I am trying to pass a score from a variable to the Results.ScorePoints variable on the results slide.

I used this information but using a NumericEntry 


Still cant get it to work. I attach my file for your delectation. 

I have set the results slide to none on the D&D slide, so that it doesn't effect the outcome.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for reaching out here. The Results.ScorePoints variable is not one that is accessible via triggers, but would only be adjusted based on the score of quiz questions throughout your course. The article you shared above is reporting the value of a variable as a question answer to your LMS, not adjusting the Results.ScorePoints variable. 

Hopefully someone in the community will be able to assist you with this set up.

Hi Tim,

I'm not sure I understand your question? If you're using a standard question type, those have points associated with them, which are calculated by the results slide used to track the question and included in the Results slide variables. If you just need to pass the value of a variable to your LMS and are not concerned about it counting towards a score - the method you previously linked to would work but it's not for numeric values. If you need to set a score using a question type would allow you to assign that score and then use the results slide to track and pass to your LMS.
