Maximum number of choices in quiz

Hi,

I tried to create a quiz with quizmaker. It is a multiple choice question. However, I found that the number of choices is limited to 10. Sadly I have a question with 11 and one with 12 choices, so that doesn't work for me.

How many possible answers can I set up with Storyline? Do you also have the limitation of 10 or can I create more?

Cheers, Niels

Neils,

The standard Storyline Multiple Choice question also limits to 10 choices.  However, a cool way to get more than 10 choices is to create a slide with 11 (or 12) buttons (the check box variety) and then convert the slide to freeform.  It's a little more manual in nature, but will definitely serve your needs!

I just tried to create the slide but without success. Here is the scenario:

I want to create something like a survey. There is no right or wrong answer, people need to click one option out of 12. More like a survey. I created the buttons now as described, however when I create a freeform and choose "Pick One" I still only have 10 possible options to choose from. Can you give me some more detailed advice please?

Survey versus a multiple choice.  Hmmm. I'll have to ponder this for a bit...

How are you planning to collect the data?  A results slide of some sort?  

Any info you can give as to your approach to the collection of the data and subsequent

reporting to the LMS would be great!   The reason I ask is that a Multiple Choice or pick one, or pick many type of question is typically ends with a "correct" or "incorrect" output. But it sounds like you may be looking to acquire survey data which typically isn't correct or incorrect in nature.

Niels,

I just tried this again.  If you create a blank slide, then add, say, 13 buttons and then convert to freeform, pick one, it should create 13 choices.

That is a good question. Ideally a survey format would be great, but the limitation to a maximum of 10 choices is in the way of that. I am trying this in Storyline for the first time, so I am not 100% sure either.

I used quizzes in another training before. It had a freetext field that I used to track as a quiz. We then could see what text was entered and were able to export that into an excel report via our LMS. What I am looking for is something like this:

1. Enter the customer name:

     -- free text field --

2. Which of these situations occurred?

    a. Situation 1

    b. Situation 2

    c. Situation 3

What I want is to track the text entered and the option chosen.

I am building a form and need for the user to select a month, day, and, year and have it report to the LMS. Problem is that free form slide and Java Script does not report to LMS. Survey nor Graded pick one quiz questions  do not allow for more than ten choices, I need 12 for the number of months, 31 for the number of days.  Any other ideas?

Thank you for your speedy response. In the meantime I created a Free Form Pick Many slide and added 12 shapes - each shape has text entered for the month. In the form view I selected score by question and entered 0 for the score. I created a 2nd slide for the day (31 shapes for 31 days), and a 3rd slide for the year (3 shapes for 3 years). It worked! and now my LMS Custom Report pulls the exact month, day, and year.  The attached image shows Form View and Excel data. Thanks again!
