End of Course Tracking question

Hey everyone,

I have a course where there is a navigation option to view one set of slides or another.  My material is proprietary so here is a generic example of what I mean; I'm doing a course on building a sandwich. The first few slides are introduction then it comes to a slide where I can choose (click) to make a PB and J or a Ham and Cheese. Each set of slides has its own graded assessment at the end. I know when publishing you are only allowed to track one set of results. Is there an easy way to do it so they can count as "passed" regardless which navigation they choose?

I know "Complete Course" trigger might be the way to go, but can I do that at the end of each assessment and it will work or will it only track from one of those triggered buttons? Thanks in advance.

Hi Joel, 

It sounds like you're creating a branching course with a quiz at the end of each "branch". You have the right idea to use a course completion trigger! 

Here's an overview of how you'll want to use that trigger. Go to the Results Slide at the end of each branch. On the Failure layer, add a trigger that sends a failed status to the LMS. On the Success layer, add another trigger that sends a passed status.

For example:

Then, when you are ready to publish the course for LMS, mark the option to track learners based on course completion triggers you added to your course.

Awesome, thanks for the response. I know it may seem like an obvious question, but can I only  a trigger if they "pass" for recording into LMS? If they fail, they have to retake the test until they pass. I'm guessing Storyline is just going to look for "Complete Course" triggers. Thanks again Alyssa!

Hi Joel, great question!

That will depend on the reporting status you select when you publish for LMS. It sounds like you'll want to use Passed/Incomplete:

  • Passed if the learner reaches the Success layer
  • Incomplete if the learner reaches the Failure layer

This status will allow learners to go back and retake the test until they pass.

Thanks again. One more question (maybe 2). So right now on my Results slide I have a Failure and a Success layer. I added the "Complete Course" trigger to the success layer like you mentioned. My question is on the results slide, one of the triggers is "Submit Results 4.14" when timeline starts. I added an image of what I'm talking about. Again, my "complete course" will happen on the success layer, wasn't sure if this "submit results" trigger is not needed or if this trigger shows them their overall score. I don't want different triggers trying to do the same thing is all. Thanks!

So I'm not sure if this is a glitch or I am doing something wrong. I have my branching set up to work as we stated above. However, now one of my branches will always report 0% on the final test even when some questions are answered correctly. My other branch test works fine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hey Joel,

Thanks for reaching back out. We're certainly glad to continue helping you.

It looks like we never had an option to take a look at your setup. With your permission, I'd like to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening. You can share it publicly here, or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.

Please let me know which branch is causing the difficulty :)
