Multiple choice, more than one right answer

I'm trying to set up a branching scenario using multiple choice questions where there is more than one right answer. I want to be able to give different scores and different feedback to reflect the range of replies from best to OK.. Using Diane Elkins book it suggests selecting 'Choice' under both feedback and scoring, but my software doesn't have that option. As far as I know my software is up to date, and I seem to be following the guidance. Is this a mix up between Storyline and Quizmaker, or am I missing something.

Hi Geoffrey,

You can score and offer feedback by choice, but a multiple choice could only have on "correct" answer - although you could assign different points for each potential answer. There is additional information in this tutorial on how to set that up, and below are images of what it should look like to change these elements while editing the question:

Feedback by choice:

 Score by choice:

 If these options don't appear at all, I'd first ask that you look into your DPI setting as described here.

Thanks Ashley

I checked the DPI setting as suggested. It was already set on 'smaller'. I'm not getting the option to select 'choice', on either the feedback or scoring menus,  only 'none' and 'by question'.  

I running Storyline on an Acer Aspire with Windows 8.1. The screen is set at high resolution (1366x768). 

Any other suggestions?

Hi Mitesh,

This thread is a bit older and as such I think we'd want to see the file you've got set up and how it's behaving. Can you confirm that you're working on local project files and using the latest update of Storyline 2 Update 7? If you're adhering to that set up and still have the issue can you upload here.

Hi Mitesh,

Thanks for sharing a file here. I'm not sure I'm clear on what you're looking for based on this description and the file. I don't see any slides number 12, 23 or 13 - but I do see you have a lot of triggers to show the "incorrect" layers when the timeline starts based on the state of the checkboxes - but that also causes me some confusion as those triggers won't execute as the timeline starts before the user has a chance to click on anything.

I went to the base layer of slide 1.1 and set the triggers for the combinations for button 1. The triggers for the single choices were already set.

I went to the incorrect layer and set the triggers to jump to the correct layer.

If you set them the same way on Picture 1, it will jump to the correct slides.
