How to add points for additional questions to the result slide


Please help me to solve the problem.
I have a course and a test at the end with a resulting slide. The pass test result is 90%. There are 4 additional questions in the course itself. I need the scores for these 4 questions in the course to be added up at the end in the resulting slide. So thanks to the 4 questions in a course, the user can improve his test result. Any ideas on how to implement this correctly? I am using Articulate Storyline 3.

Thank you in advance!

Hi, Daria, and welcome to E-Learning Heroes! ✨

Are you looking for a way to have extra credit questions, or do you want to include questions from different areas into one results slide?

If it's the second option, then when you add a Results slide, you can select all the questions that will be considered.

Extra credit is a little more involved but certainly doable:

On the results slide, only select the main quiz questions (exclude the extra credit ones). 

Create a variable for the extra credit (let's call it extra)

In each of the extra credit ones, add a trigger to the Correct feedback layer adding 10 points to the variable extra.

On your Results slide, add a trigger that adds the Results.PassPoints variable to the extra variable, then display it on a textbox for the user.

I would also suggest limiting the maximum points with a condition (so, for example, the maximum is 100 points, the extra credit would not allow the user to get 120).

I am attaching a sample .story file. It has 2 extra credit questions (maximum 20 points) and 3 regular questions (maximum 30 points). 

Let me know if this works!

Hi, Maria,

Thank you very much for the help!

Yes, this is exactly what I need but I use the result score persent, so I have changed it a little bit. There is only one point that I did not take into account. Articulate counts correctly, but in the LMS transmitted the result for the final test. Excluding extra questions. I don't know how to change this..
