How to show number of correct/incorrect answers on Results Slide

Jun 10, 2016

I am creating a course that has 10 quiz questions.  On the results slide, instead of showing a final score, I would like to tell the user that they answered X/10 scenarios either correctly or incorrectly.  I still want the score to report back to our LMS; however, the user just needs to know how many they got right or wrong.

Essentially the results slide would say something like:

Congratulations!  You answered 9/10 question correctly!

Sorry!  You only answered 3/10 correctly.  Please try again.

I think this needs to be done using variables but I'm not entirely sure.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, Michael.

From what I understand, Wendy's statement means that on your Results slide, you should add a textbox with the reference to the variable you created. For example:

  • You answered %score% questions correctly out of 20. 

I hope this helps!

Hi, Michael,

There's an easy way to show # correct. For each question, go to Form View. By default, each question is worth 10 points, as shown here:

Change that "10" to "1" so each question is worth 1 point.

Do that, and the  "Results.ScorePoints" variable will equal the number of questions answered correctly. Thus, you can show that variable wherever you want to indicate the number correct. For example: 

"You got %Results.ScorePoint% out of 10 correct." 

FYI: The "Results.PassPoints" variable will equal the number of questions needed to pass. You might not want to show that variable, though, if it could end up as a number with a decimal point (which will depend on the number of questions and the % needed to pass).
