Persistent Variables

Can anyone help or point me to a reference on storing variables from session to session of a Storyline program?  Basically, I have created slider controls to record individual's self assessments in various categories (10 point Likert scale).  Using the control's variable I will create another variable to calculate the average of the entries and would like to store this value from session to session so that each time a user runs the program they can make their selection, have that added to the cumulative average, and see a display of the accumulated averages for each category.  Thanks!

SL will save the values of variables, except for the values on the slide you are on when you exit (I consider this a bug). For this reason, I ended up making an "Exit" slide. If my user clicks "Save & Exit" in my course, they are taken to another slide which informs them that their progress has been saved, and presents them with a "resume" button and an "exit" button.

Check out the example here:
