Fillable Form Quiz in Storyline

Howdy Folks!

Ok.....so I am working on my first tid-bit of something in Storyline, and I would like to create a quizzing interaction that is a form in which participants fill it out.....simple enough right.

So I have decided to create a free-form interaction with text entrys. I have a graphic that I have placed blank text boxes over it (where the form fields are) and the user will click in the little field picture and place their answer.

However since their is so many different fields for them to fill out, is there a way to group several text entries together (like blocks or parts of the form) that the user fills out and then does a submit feature only when multiple fields have been entered?

Otherwise, users would have to submit an answer for stuff like first and last name - which is kind of silly.

Basically, the form is in 3 major parts and I want to user to fill out several text entries fields in part A., B. or C. of the form and submit the A, B. and C components in groups.  Make sense?

How should I best achieve this effect? Appreciate ya'll.....mean it!

Hi Mike! Thanks for the assist.

The goal of the form is to have users learn how to fill out the form correctly in a quiz format. So essentially it is an isolated interaction/quizz that allows a user to enter the correct data into the field on the form and check to see if their input was correct. There will be no tracking or references of the field input as it will all be on 1 slide.

I was wondering if a free form quiz with text fields would do this, or maybe a software simulation would work....exploring options at this point.

I would also like the form to allow the user to enter multiple entries into a single block of questions (for example enter your data into 5 fields and then have the user click submit to see if its right).....if this is even possible in Storyline. The form is broken up into 3 sections that need multiple entries into different areas on the form.

Also, another question I have is if we can create drop down questions in free form view or by another means. One of the parts on the form is a drop down box where the user selects the proper procedure.

Thanks Again!

How's this? (see attached)

Melissa, 

I would love to see the finished output as I am currently building a similar fill-able quiz based on a form.  This is going to be a bear, as the learner needs to complete 33 fields correctly in order for proper medical reimbursement to go through without a hitch.

Best regards,

Thanks Mike!

Thats a good example, and I will certainly add that tactic to my bag-o-tricks!

But just like Alex, I have the same circumstances. My form has about 20 fields to fill out.

Alex,

The best solution I have found is to leverage the software simulation tool. That is what I am using and so far so good.  I have tried other methods and while I can duplicate field entry...Storyline will only track 1 field per slide - whereas like you, I will need it to track 20 fields on 1 slide...or at least create the illusion that it does. The software simulation tool can achieve this.

Is your form online or in a pdf that you can fill out on your computer? If so, use the software simulation tool to record the screen and the input the video into "try or test" mode to duplicate the field entry application.

I am working on learning all of the editing possibilities now to see how fluid I can get the capture. I will pass along good lil' tid bits as I come across them.

 Hope this helps!

Hi,

I am very new to Storyline and am at the moment as  Melissa and Alex need to have students complete a form in a quiz..

Is it possible to develop a form in Adobe PDF forms and insert into Storyline as a Web Object.

Also do you have any advice on how to paste a URL address into the Web Object URL address bar using an Apple Mac where you cant right click the mouse. Typing the URL is a long and inaccurate method which more often than not results the wrong URL address.

Peter,

Yes, you could insert a PDF as a web object.  Or...another idea, you could use a Google Doc.

As for the right click on a Mac, you can enable this in your settings. For example, if you're using the trackpad, you can enable the secondary click by going to Settings>trackpad>Point&Click>

If you have a mouse connected, you should be able to enable the same functionality in a similar manner in the mouse settings.
