Help with Review Slide for Fill-in-the-Blank Quiz Item

Dec 18, 2014

I have a fill-in-the-blank quiz item. In form view, I entered the acceptable answers. When the answers are reviewed, the review layer slide for this type shows the acceptable answers, but not in the desired font size and color. It seems to have a default values. I would prefer for these not to appear since I can customize the content of the Review layer anyway. Can this be done? If not, can the answers presented be edited and changed to the desired font, size, and color?

I'm almost tempted not the indicate acceptable answers in form view but then the question cannot be graded.

I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

Hello Celito!

When you are referring to the "review layer" is this the correct/incorrect feedback layer, or the slides when you hit the "review quiz" button?

These feedback layers can be edited in the Slide view. Or, you can remove them all together by choosing None under the feedback in the top left of the top toolbar. If you do remove them, you can create you own layers to show when the answer is submitted.

The review layers when you use the Review Quiz button can be edited as well. Here is information on how to do this.

Yes it is the correct/incorrect feedback layer shown when the Review Quiz button is clicked.

When the option to show correct or incorrect answers is chosen, fill-in-the blank questions show the acceptable answers. This is what I want to edit.  Or if I cannot, then to disable "Show correct or incorrect answers..." But I only want to do this for fill-in-the-blank questions, and other types where I do not need to shuffle answers but enable it for multiple choice questions.

Disabling this option in the results slide will solve my problem with fill-in-the blank questions, but will force customized feedback for multiple-choice questions as well, which will be tedious when a simple indicator of the correct answer would have sufficed.

The option to show correct or incorrect answers for multiple choice questions is ideal, since that option will match the correct answer mark (check) with the correct answer, even if answers are shuffled.

The solution I am hoping for is either one of the following:

1. Editing the acceptable answers feedback for fill-in-the blank questions, if "Show correct or incorrect answers..." is active. I am aware of previous discussions about editing the feedback master, but can't seem to find a definitive answer about editing the acceptable answers feedback, especially for fill-in-the blank questions. I will try tinkering with the feedback master and see if this will address this issue.

2. Disable the option to show correct or incorrect answers only for fill-in-the blank questions, but enable it for multiple choice questions. I'm not sure about this, since it appears that this option in the results slide applies to all questions, not question types.

Hello Celito,

Removing the option to show the correct or incorrect option is based by the results slide, so it will be for all the questions, and not question types.

In order to change the review quiz slides, you can check out the link I provided above to customize these. 

The feedback master will only apply to the "correct" and "incorrect" layers that appear when the submit button is selected. This will not apply for the Review Quiz slides.

Hi there Emily,

Thanks for including that screenshot. There is a known issue in Storyline where the Fill in the blank list of acceptable answers are incorrectly displayed when using a higher resolution on slide size. Specifically we see this problem with slides that are 760x570 or higher for 4:3 aspect ratio and 970x546 and higher for 16:9 aspect ratio. We're working on a fix for this, and I'll be sure to include your experience in the report. Can you verify whether you're using Storyline 2 or Storyline 360?

In the meantime, changing your slide size to lower than 760x570 for 4:3 aspect ratio and lower than 970x546 for 16:9 aspect ratio should fix the problem.
