Multiple Times and Results Slides
Sep 05, 2015
I've been assigned to create a large 60-minute pre-assessment module with 5 question banks. Ideally, the client would like each section to have its own Timer and Results slides. However, when I tried this in a small "proof-of-concept" file, the Timer would just stop at the first Results screen and never restart for the next section of questions. (The first Results slide was set to Start Time at First Question and the other Results slides were set to Start Timer at First Slide).
When I changed the Timer setting for all sections from "Start at First Question" the Timer would NOT stop when I reached the first Results screen. It would appear to restart when advancing to the next section, but it was actually applying the first section's time limit to the ensuing sections, and the quiz timed out before I could finish (because the first section's time ran out). I tried breaking out each section into its own Scene, but that didn't help either. I saw this issue at http://www.articulate.com/support/storyline/timer-keeps-running-on-the-result-slide-or-stops-running-when-retaking-a-quiz, but the only solutions was to update Storyline, and I have the latest version. QUESTION 1: Is there a way to have separate Timers for different Assessments within the same Storyline file?
QUESTION 2: An alternate solution might be to have ONE Results slide and ONE Timer for the entire Assessment (The time limit is 60 minutes). However, would the timer "pause" if the user exited the module and then returned later to finish it?
