Help creating a Flash survey in Storyline

Hi, we created a Learning Styles survey in Flash and are trying to recreate something similar in Storyline so that ipad/iphone users would be able to take the assessment. One of the issues is that we have 3 separate banks of questions (yes/no questions, separate bank for each learning style) that calculate a separate score for each learning style.  It would tell you your score for each of these banks but wouldn't add up one entire score that would tell you what your learning style is based on your responses. How would we create 3 different path results? I viewed this tutorial that was done in Quizmaker, but it really doesn't solve our problem: http://community.articulate.com/blogs/jeanette/archive/2011/05/19/using-quizmaker-09-to-build-magazine-style-assessments.aspx. If we wrote "if", "then" statements, the possibilities could be endless. Here's a link to the current survey:

Thanks!

Hi Mike, right now, we haven't really started our story file. We've just been playing around to see how it would all work. There are a total of 36 questions. We thought about having 12 questions from each category...tactile, visual and auditory.  Scoring one category at 0, one at 2 and one at 4, but there are so many variables, we're unsure how to score the results. Thanks for your reply.

Aidreen, this is a way you could do it: You would only actually need 3 variables, one each for the scores for the Tactile, visual and auditory styles.

Let's say you have 12 questions on a page, each with a radio button. Like in your flash example. Also you have a 'submit' button that jumps to next page.

On the page you need 12 triggers, one related to each question. Each trigger will add one point to the variable (that the question relates to), if the button for that question is selected, when the submit button is clicked (n.b. not when the button itself is selected). The trigger to jump to the next page by the way needs to go after these triggers!

When you have done all three pages, you can have some triggers that display wording/preferred style depending on the variable values.

I did the same sort of thing for a 'social styles' questionnaire: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/64840770/Social%20Styles%20Questionnaire%20output/story.html

Happy to talk you through it a bit more.

hi, I am new to Storyline and I have been struggling with building questionnaires for a while. John, would you share your story file with us? I seem to be doing something wrong, but I can not find out what.

Thanks in advance.
