Passing variable information to LMS or Tracking content.

Feb 01, 2022


I have a Storyline 3 project where the user will be selecting :

  • 1 of 5 States they live in,
  • read some legal information about that state,
  • acknowledging they read the information by clicking on the radio button with is a graded question slide, then Submitting the Acknowledgement. 

I am trying to pass along variable information that is in the graded question slide (multiple choice), basically what state they chosen to LMS tracking information. I included a screen capture of what the "Interaction Response" is capturing, a %SceneChoice% variable reference text.

Interaction Response

The problem is that the State is not being passed along, just variable reference.

Does anyone have a work around for this?

I included a mock up storyline file to better illustrate what I a attempting.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Thomas,

I tested your story file on ScormCloud and confirmed that the State is not being passed as a variable inside the interaction question. I don't think it's meant to be reported as such at all. Only interaction type, result, and learner response ( a question text value) are getting reported to LMS (attached screenshot). I restructured your file (hope you don't mind) to show 5 different acknowledgment scenes. Only one will show up based on your selection on the first slide. This way you can actually type the State name in your choice so the State name can also be captured in your response in LMS. The result slide (last scene) is tracking all interactions but score only one that gets viewed and answered so your score updates to 100% regardless. Please find the attached story file and a screenshot of logs taken after my last session using my edited story file.
