Matching Drag and Drop Results Slides

Dec 18, 2013

I have created two matching drag and drop quizzes.  On one of them the results slide indicates the incorrect answers, with numbers that indicate the correct match.  On the results slide for the second quiz the correct answers are matched up.  I thought I created the results slides the same way.  Any idea where the difference could be? 

I would like the incorrect answers to be visible to the students.

I have attached screen shots of the results slide so you can see the differences.  The middle slide shows the matches with  number two and three incorrect.

Thanks,   Allida

Hi Allida,

Not sure what's up. Looking at your pictures, the first picture looks like it's part of the quiz review, but the second doesn't? It's still showing a Submit button rather than the Prev/Next buttons and banner at the bottom.

Any chance you can upload your story with those 2 slides and the results slide?

Rebecca, thanks for your note.  There should have been three pictures.  The third picture showed the results slide from the second quiz.  Anyway I have attached a story file that contains both scenes. (That was a nice learning experience, to import just two scenes from a project into new project.)

Thanks for taking a look.  I am very new to storyline so there is telling what I have done!

Hi Allida,

I took a look at your .story file and the first matching drag/drop question in Scene one has the slide revisit properties set to Reset to initial state, so when that happens and you review the quiz, it's assuming you haven't answer/answered incorrectly and showing you the incorrect banner. You'll want to change that to "resume saved state" or "automatically decide". Additionally I also noticed your "Correct" layer for that question did not have a trigger to jump to the Results slide. With those changes everything behaves as expected within Scene 1, and Scene 2 seemed good from the beginning. 

Let us know if you need anything else!

Hi Anni,

Without seeing the file, it's hard to say for certain - but a few things to look into:

  • Is the question slide set to "reset to initial state" and possibly being revisited and not keeping the score?
  • Did you check to see if you changed the points assigned to the correct/incorrect set up? 

You may also want to check that when working on your .story file you're adhering to the guidelines below:

  • Work on your local drive (your C: drive).Working on a network drive or a USB drive can cause erratic behavior, includingfile corruption, loss of audio, and other unexpected behavior. 
  • You should also make sure the directory pathto your project files and your published output is less than 260 characters(for example C:\Articulate).
  • Avoid using special characters, accents orsymbols in your file names.

If you're still having difficulty, could you share your .story file with us here?

Hi Anni,

I'm also unsure of your question - it looks like you may have tried to set up some custom scoring and that's the results/scores your referencing on the slide? My score seems to be adjusted based on how many I get correct/incorrect - although that custom score you've set up won't report to the LMS which could be why you're seeing the zero.

Hi Anni,

You can set the number of attempts in a drag and drop, and by default, the user will need to move the items from the drop locations out to drag them again - it doesn't reset the slide.  One of our community members has shared a great example of how to set it up to reset the slide and still track the attempts and you can watch the video here.

Hi Ramen, 

You can add in a results slide that will score the quiz based on the elements that you've enabled in the drag and drop question set up - but it looks like you're implementing some additional custom scoring set up? 

If I'm misunderstanding your file set up, you may want to review this article on how to include a results slide.
