Four different and exclusive assessments - Can each be tracked?

Hi heroes!

I'm working on a request for a training to include specific content and assessments for four different teams. I know it's possible to build the course in Storyline, but I'm not sure if it's possible to track the four assessments in Articulate Online. I need to be able to track the scores for their particular assessments, but learners shouldn't be penalized for not taking an exam that isn't part of their team.

See the diagram below for a visual of what I'm looking at.

Is it possible to set something like this up in one course? Are master results slides my solution, or will I need to have four separate courses entirely?

Hi Steve,

We only support tracking on SCO across all of products (Storyline, Studio, and AO) but there is a method detailed here on how to track multiple SCOS.  Please note, that those are not supported - so you'll have to defer to the community for assistance. 

Also if you're going to use a master results slide, that will allow you to combine results from all the results as detailed here: 

  • User must pass each quiz: Select this option if learners must pass each individual quiz (represented by the tracked result slides) in order to pass the overall course (represented by the final result slide). If learners fail any quiz in the course, then they fail the entire course.
  • Combine points from each quiz: Select this option if you want the scores from all tracked result slides to be added together as the final score for the course, then enter a percentage in the Passing Score field. In this scenario, a learner could fail one or more of the individual quizzes and still pass the overall course.

Tip: When combining multiple result slides into a master result slide, learners will need to visit each of the tracked result slides to complete the course. Otherwise, the course status will be marked incomplete.

Do you really need to know their exact scores or just that they passed? You could program it so when they pass whatever exam they need to take, they go to a special quiz slide disguised as an interaction. Set it up so there's only 1 correct answer. Follow that by a Results slide (also disguised to look like an "end of course" slide), and use that Result for tracking successful completion.  In other words, the only way to get to the end is by passing one of the tests, but they don't have to take them all. (FYI: The LMS will show 100% -- not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Thanks for your help as always, Ashley. It doesn't seem like it's possible to really get everything I want, but I will look into using web objects as it might be the closest solution.

Judy - yes, we use the data of what learners specifically missed for reporting and followup trainings. I wish we could just take them at pass / fail!

How about this: Have the program copy the Results variables from each quiz into custom variables. Set up a fake quiz for everyone that's used for tracking, as described above. After it's complete, set up a trigger to replace the "final" Results variables with the info from the custom variables. That might work.
