How can I recreate a 'learning styles' questionnaire?

Hi all

I have been asked to create a learning styles e-learning programme that will allow a learner to find out what their learning style is by adding up their responses to a series of questions..   I found something similar online here:

Can anyone advise if/how this can be done in Storyline??!!!

Hi Cheryl,

Are you intending on including a similar amount of options? You could definitely build something like that in Storyline, but it would probably be a pretty long process if you need to include a lot of options. 

You could work with branching, variables and so forth to carry the learner to different sections of the course, if that's what you had in mind.

Can you give a little more information on how you envision your project?

I basically just wanted to recreate something like the quiz I included in the link   which would require the learner to answer a question with one of 3 options and then 'tally' up the final 'colours' so they could see what learning style(s) they are.   Whether this is a form-based approach or question by question I am not sure.  If anyone has something similar already built in Storyline I would love to see it!

Kind regards,

Good morning Cheryl,

Jeanette is no longer with us at Articulate, sadly. I'm not sure if she'd still have the original files from that tutorial. It probably wouldn't hurt to ask her, though! I'm sure she'd be happy to share them with you if she still has them.

Good luck with the project!

Hi Leslie,

Not sure if it is the answer for me, Thanks Again and I will have a look at it.

I have 4 categories that the person can fall into, none of them are wrong, it is just how a person's Learning style is broken up.

The 80 questions are broken up as follows:-

Q's 2, 4, 6, 10, 17, 23, 24, 32, 34, 38, 40, 43, 45, 48, 58, 64, 71, 71, 74 & 79 are Cat 1.

Q's 7, 13, 15, 16, 25, 28, 29, 31, 33, 36, 39, 41, 46, 52, 55, 60, 62, 66, 67 & 76 are Cat 2.

Q's 1, 3, 8, 12, 14, 18, 20, 22, 26, 30, 42, 47, 51, 57, 61, 63, 68, 75, 77 & 78 are Cat 3.

Q's 5, 9, 11, 19, 21, 27, 35, 37, 44, 49, 50, 53, 54, 56, 59, 65, 69, 70, 73 & 80 are Cat 4.

 The Person has to answer all the questions, Agree or Disagree, then the Agree questions are all that is taken into account when scoring.

What we are looking for is a result where

Cat 1 = 15 Agrees out of 20,

Cat 2 = 12 Agrees out of 20,

Cat 3 = 05 Agrees out of 20,

Cat 4 = 06 Agrees out of 20,

That way we can look at the person falling between Cat 1 (15) and Cat 2 (12).

Any further ideas how this can be done?

Thanks again for your prompt reply?

I actually stumbled upon this post when trying to do something similar and found my own way to do this.  I made the questionnaire as a text box (dragged into a scrolling panel) and created different variables.  In my case 4 different variables for different learning styles.  Then I hyperlinked each answer and used the click to add a value to the corresponding variable.  Finally, on the next (results) page, I used a variable reference to denote the corresponding percentages for each answer.  The user would then use their score to compare to a text reference for interpretation.  A bit time-consuming, but not difficult.

I did this as well, but in order to show a slide at the end with corresponding percentages (% visual, % auditory, % kinesthetic), found I could use no less than 3 variables:  1 to store answers to questions (for each category), another to divide by the total possible, and another to turn the result into a percentage.  Does that sound correct, or did I make it more complicated than it needed to be?  Is there an easier way?

My assessment was based upon shapes/text boxes/images instead of radio buttons:  a click on the shape w/text = both add to variable and jump to next slide.
