Likert Scale - Is this possible?

Hi All,

I was hoping for some advice on the best method of acheiveg the following.

We would like to ask 20 questions and depending on the answers given, present the learners with one of three answer slides which detail the type of person they are based on the response to the questions.  

So for example, if we asked 20 questions about pets and the answers ranged from like, dont mind, dislike.  If the majority of answers were 'dislike' we would like to present a slide that says that they are someone that is does not like pets.  Alternatively, if they answered mainly 'like' answers we would like to present a different slide explaining that they appear to 'like' pets etc.


Can this be done and if so, what is the best method?

Hi Leslie.

That's useful thank you.

On reflection, I may be able to clarify the question even more.  

Is it possible to set a variable on a page so that on a survey page, you can say that if the majority of answers = A then present slide A.  If the majority of answers = B then present slide B etc...?

Hi Leslie,

I have not really got anything created yet as I am struggling to find the best method.

Attached is a very basic screen shot of what I am trying to achieve.
In the screenshot I have selected a survey likert scale slide.

1 = No
2 = Sometimes
3 = Yes

The objective is ask the user a series of questions to determine whether they like animals or not.

So, if the user selects mainly No (1) answers, i would like articulate to total the answers up and then present them with a slide which states that they do not like animals.  Alternatively, if they select mainly Yes (3) answers, I would like articulate to total up the answers and present a slide that states that they are clearly animal lovers.

Is articulate able to do this?

From what I have read so far, i do not think there is out of the box method of doing this. Instead it looks like I may need to have a separate questionon each slide and that I may need to manually create an image for each answer instead of using the survey?

Does this make sense?

Hi Wayne!

Thanks for the explanation and the visual. That certainly assists me in understanding what you are trying to accomplish.

You are right, it's not out of the box and would require some additional work if you wanted to use the likert survey type question to set this up.

You could utilize a graded question type that would allow you to score by choice including Multiple Choice, Word Bank, Freeform Pick One, and Freeform Hotspot.

Otherwise hopefully someone in the community will be able to chime in and assist.
