Help needed with scoring

Hi all,

I've converted a paper-based Change IQ quiz into an e-learning quiz and I'm not sure how I could report learner's results without them having to go back manually and see how they responded to each question.  I've included what I've created thus far and would love you to share any ideas on how to make this work.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Daisha,


So, when you say "report learner's results without them having to go back manually" you mean you would like the results to self-calculate and be shown to the learner? Is that right? 

If so, I'm not sure it'll work using the Likert questions, I think you'll need to build the questions, and then add variables to do the calculating. 

If you could please describe a bit more what your intention is, I may be able to help out :)

Hi Daisha,

I've put together two slides very quickly. On the first one I added 3 questions (text boxes), and 3 button sets made up of 5 radio buttons each. I created a variable named "calculation" and added triggers to add to that variable depending on which radio button the user selects for each question (I just assigned a value of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 to the buttons, but obviously you can change those values to what you need).

The calculation happens when the user clicks NEXT and is shown on the next slide.

Could you take a look and see if that works how you want it?

Thank you so much! I should have time to look at it tomorrow and I’ll let you know if I run into any issues.

Thank you Veronica, we're getting closer.  I was able to change the triggers to include which questions the learner will need to score high on in order for them to be categorized as resisting, observing, accommodating, or embracing.  However, when I preview the slides, I'm not allowed to select more than one radio button on specific questions?  In this assessment, the learner will need to select an answer for each question.  Also, I attempted to change trigger 4 to show if the learner scores high (4s or 5s) on questions 4,5,8,11,&16 then instead of a calculation, they will see the words Embracing.  This did not work the way I intended.  I would like the result slide to show whether they are resisting, observing, accommodating, or embracing based if they rated themselves high (4s or 5s) on the questions associated with each category (I've included those questions on slide 1.  I truly appreciate all your help and I think we've almost there.  Let me know if you have any ideas.  Thanks, Daisha

Hi Daisha,

The first issue is an easy fix, sorry I should have clarified. Each set of radio buttons needs to be made into a Button Set, by right-clicking and creating a new button set. See the images attached, which show the first set of buttons is Button Set 1. the second Button Set 2 and so on. 

To do this for each set, simply Select all the buttons that form part of the set, right-click and choose New Set, and call it Button Set 3, then 4, 5 etc.

The second thing I need more time to look at, so I'll get back to you later!
