Need functionality for user to review questions after failing quiz without Storyline identifying the correct answers

Hi Everyone,

I'm using Storyline 360, and need to add the following functionality for quizzes.  After the user completes all quiz questions which are multiple choice or true / false, the results slide gives them their score. 

If the user fails, after the results slide, the course should show every question and the answers they selected, but not identify the correct answers, and allow  the user to retake the quiz.  And each time the user retakes the quiz, the results slide will show their score, and the user can review all the questions and see which ones they got right and which ones they got wrong.  The user can retake the quiz as many times as needed until they get a passing score.

Any suggestions on how to add this functionality?

I wasn't able to figure  out how to get Storyline to do that, so I built the functionality show on slides after the results slide the questions and which answers the user selected and if they were correct or incorrect.  That worked, but when I tried to go back to retake the quiz, on all of the quiz slides, the Submit button had changed to Prev and Next buttons.

Thank you,

John

Wendy,

If I were to use Storyline's Review functionality, is there a way to customize how it works?  It would require much less maintenance and editing to do every time I build a new course, than to use what I built with many variables and triggers.

How can I customize that textbox at the bottom that tells you if your response was correct or incorrect and how can I get it to show what your responses were, instead of leaving all of the radio button in the Normal (unselected) state?

Thank you,

John

Hi Wendy,

I read the article on https://blogs.articulate.com/word-of-mouth/3-easy-steps-to-customizing-review-feedback-in-articulate-storyline

Based on that, inserted a white rectangle on the Review layer to hide the feedback.  That works fine.  

However, when the quiz is completed and the Review button is clicked on the Results slide, a quiz slide flashes and then it jumps back to the Results slide.  When the Review button is clicked again this second time the Results slide is shown, it jumps to the first quiz slide and then everything functions properly after that.

Any suggestions on how to get this to work?

Thank you,

John

Sorry John

I'm a visual so I'd probably need to see the slide and work with it to see what's happening...on first thought I would be checking if there are animations / transitions on that particular quiz slide, any triggers on master layouts that may be affecting it.

Happy to take a look if you want to upload it.

I'm just heading into the office so will be about 45 minutes offline.

Hi John

I've just opened your test file and notice the show layer triggers on the result slide are sitting under Player - they should be under Slide

Double click on each trigger to open it - then click OK and they will jump up to be under Slide Triggers

I've got it working to a point but only by deleting the 'incorrect layer' and adding triggers to the submit button when the incorrect answer is selected.

I added the review button to the success layer and it worked fine when all the answers selected were correct...so I am figuring it had something to do with the incorrect layer trigger but I'm not sure why...plus there were lots of pause timeline triggers that could have also been affecting it.

Anyway, not sure if I've helped or made it worse for you...see this Peek of what I mean

The manager finally agreed to my using the default Storyline functionality.

Now that I've added the Review button to the Failure layer, when I intentionally fail the 10-question quiz, the text box at the bottom of each slide reviewed says "Incorrect", even for the slides where the question was answered correctly.

Please advise on how to fix this.

Thank you,

Hi John,

I would use Resume saved state to be certain that on a Review things are displaying as expected. That also means if a user navigates back to the slide using the menu or previous buttons, the slide will show already answered and submitted, and they won't be able to change their answer. Just something to keep in mind! 

If you'd like the option to change answers, take a look at the tutorial here on how to submit all the quiz questions at once.

Hi John,

If you're using the built-in Results slide options to Review or Retry, both of those are set with the correct triggers to navigate back through the course and for a Retry, reset all the questions. With that in mind, you could use Resume saved state and Storyline will work as needed. 

The option of Automatically decide is also available, as the Retry functionality would override the interactivity of the slide but the broad rules for that setup are as follows: 

Automatically decide is the default option. Storyline will decide whether to resume the slide or reset it based on the objects it contains. Here's the logic:

  • If the slide has only simple objects and/or audio but no interactivity, Storyline resets the slide to the beginning of its timeline.
  • If the slide contains interactive elements, such as buttons or other objects that have a visited/selected state, Storyline resumes the slide where it left off previously.
