How do I create individual scores for mulitple quizzes

Nov 27, 2012

I created a Quiz in Quizmaker 09 that included 3 Paths in 1 Quiz. It was based on Jeanette Brooks' excellent post.

Now, I'm trying to do the same thing using Articulate Storyline. I've created 3 question "groups". At the end of each group, the user is taken to the results slide to tally their score. From the results slide, they go back to the first slide and try another questions "group" . Unfortunately, upon completing the second question group, the results slide tallys the point total for the first AND second group. Instead of the one group that they just completed.

In other words, I need the results slide to show only the score for only the questions that were answered (not the entire lot).

Here is a screenshot of my story view. Any ideas?

Thanks Rebecca and El,

Only my first week with Storyline so still learning the ropes. In the end, I think if I had started from scratch instead of simply importing the old Quizmaker 09, I would have been better off in understanding the layout.

After much trial and error the suggestion of creating multiple feedback slides for each set of questions worked. Appreciate your help!

Hi all

I realise this thread is now a bit old, but I'm having the exact same issue/challenge, and I can't see how any of Steve's questions were answered in this thread.

The challenge we're having is getting the LMS to register completion

Of course in Storyline only one results slide can be slected for tracking purposes. Therefore, if you have 4 different slide for the four different branches, completion will only be registered on one of them. Unfortunately we can't use one results slide for all for branches because the user's score needs to be be displayed at on the final slide based on the respective brand they went down.

Can anyone offer any help or advice on tracking completion for multiple paths/branches on an LMS?

Thanks so much

Hi there Alastiar!

Articulate Storyline and Articulate Presenter allow you to track a course by the number of slides viewed or by one specific quiz (result slide). However, you may be able to track more than one SCO in a course, using any of the unsupported methods described here

Keep in mind that this would also be up to how your LMS interprets the data that Storyline sends to it

Hope that helps! :)

HI gang-- yes I was running into the same issue-

I need the LMS to define course completion as "having passed with 80%" and viewed the % of slides- that said it doesn't specify which slides should be viewed nor does it understand that I only want 1 results slide to be reporting (depending on which quiz a user takes of 3 different paths)-

Can i shut down the other paths with triggers - effectively shutting down the other results slides? 

I hope this is making sense- with 3 available quiz paths, the LMS is tracking all 3. I only want users to choose 1 quiz path- with one associated result slide. If they don't do all of them the LMS is reporting the package as incomplete.

If I have to I'll  separat the different quiz paths into their own separate scorm packages - but that means more scrolling and potential for confusion for users...

Hi Dominique, 

Currently Storyline can only report out on one completion method, so either the results slide (one results slide, not more than one or from a selection of multiple) or the number of slides viewed (that you set out of total slides). It's been a long standing topic of discussion for folks to look at ways in which they could report the quiz result based on what quiz a user took in the forums, but currently there isn't a built in method to do so. Although, you'll see from that discussion there are a lot of different ways to accomplish it - just have to find the one that is right for you!

Yep that's what I'm getting--

My current solution is to separate the 3 quiz trajectories into their own
storyline packages and allow the user choice to happen through the LMS.

Longer term i wonder if there isn't a way to create a custum javascript
trigger that will in essence "hide" other results slides once a user has
selected a certain quiz path...

I'll let you know if that works out!

If you separate the 3 quiz trajectories into their own packages,  I think you should be able to make it work. 

You can't really hide results slides, but you can have all of them report to a final results slide. For 3 quiz paths, each path will report 33% of the total score. On the final results slide, you can then use javascript, as I demonstrated in the other thread, to overwrite the score with the final score you want to report to the LMS.
