Data Table/Check Box Input

How is it going Articulate family!?

I'm in the process of finishing a project for my Master's synthesis and only have one little area that needs to be in place before I go back for any final revisions.

Here is the goal, the subject will watch a video and look for certain behaviors within a 10-second timeframe around a target participant.  The video is setup and good to go with visual cues at 10-second intervals.

The problem that I am attempting to solve is the data table.  Ideally, I'd like a 2x5 or 2x10 table that can receive a "check" if the stimulus resulted in the desired outcome.  The video describes the stimulus as "on-task" behavior, so if the behavior is present I want the learner to click the appropriate box (e.g. 2 "Y" axis' with a present or not present and some boxes next to them for the check.

In order to achieve this, would it be better to make a freeform "click all that apply" and have that underneath the movie or input some sort of excel sheet and set up a "change state" trigger for each box?

Hi Matt,

Sounds like an interesting Master's project you've got there! I'm no design expert, so I'll defer to the community for the best method here - but I'd say using a freeform pick many question would be the best fit if you need to track and report out on their answers. Just keep in mind that Storyline doesn't have a tables insert function so you'll need to build it from scratch. Also, the scoring will be all or nothing - so keep that in mind as you develop your course!

Hope you're able to share what you've come up with once you're done!

Here is what I created so far:

check boxes

I have my video up top, quick instructions on the right side.  Then underneath it there are 3 different options to choose and if the behavior that you are tracking, in this case being on task and reading, is observed, you click the box every 10-seconds to track how frequently the target is on/off task.

I do not really mind if the percent feature is not there, and figure these educators can figure that piece out themselves, as it is in increments of 10%.  However, if I did want to include a percent at the end, how would I go about doing that?  Currently, it is just a check box for visual/interactive purposes, as this was build for educators with a Master's level experience who are accustomed to data collection.

Thanks family!

As Ashley mentioned, this can be done with a pick many freeform question. The percentages cna be calculated with triggers and numeric variables. See attached a quick (rough) example of how this might work. I calculated the On-Task variable for illustration. Of course, this can also be turned into a scoreable interaction. There are lots of options here. For example, I didn't know if learners should be allowed to 'go back' and select options from a previous timeframe. But maybe this gets you started.
