How can I realize One-More-Chance test?

Oct 18, 2016

Hello there,

Now I am trying to build Test online course, "one-more-chance test" which has slightly complicated structure. (Would you see the attached?)

Can I ask you how I can realize that?

Thank you very much.

I have attached a file for you. Maybe this is one option you want to use.

first time not right = retry button appears

first time not right and second time not right = failed and no chance to try again

first time not right and second time right = passed

first time right = passed

I used 2 variables: count_retry and hide_retry


See trigger below:


If you have questions, don´t hesitate to ask. :)

That´s a bit complicated. For each quiz you need a result slide BUT when publishing the course you can only set one result slide to count for the LMS. So you either have to create a third result slide which counts results 1 and 2 together and adjust this to subtract result 1 from 2 (if you want to have a percentage score shown at the end).

A colleague said easier would be to create 2 quizzes. When you fail the first your LMS activates the second one.

I think it could be easier to realise with javascript, but there I´m out. :D

I'm assuming that it can be realized with these process:

1. Put Attempt #1 Questions which is a start slide of the course.
2. Check the result of Attempt #1 Questions.
3. If passed, then keep hiding reattempt button and indicate to ask leaner to close the contents.
4. If failed, if it were the first time, after indicating some message, reset the result(score) and jump to Attempt #2 Questions.
5. If failed, if it were the second time, indicate to ask learner to close the contents.
6. The last slide of Attempt #2 leads to the same result slide.

What do you think?
I will try if my plan can be realize under that process. (I will try that tomorrow. Now I've already left office. )

Thank you very much.

Before tying above (process 1-6), I checked how your story file worked on an LMS which I use (Absorb 5) and it did not work as I expected.

*Case ( 1st Test : passed ) > LMS indicated passed.
*Case ( 1st Test : failed / 2nd Test : passed ) > LMS indicated failed.

When previewing on Storyline it works as expected.
However, working on LMS, it does not work as expected as I mentioned above.

Do you know why it works like that?
Do you have any solutions against that?

Thank you very much.
