Pre-test and Posttest in One Course

Feb 16, 2015


I have a client who would like to give participants the option to test out of the course via a Pre-test. The Pre-test will be the same questions but needs to be separate from the Posttest since the Posttest has feedback and the Pre-test will not. They also want the participants to only pass the Pre-test if they get 100%, but the Posttest will only require 80% to pass.

My question is: will their LMS be confused by 2 tests/results slides? Participants should receive credit for completing the course by passing ONE of the tests successfully. I am publishing for Scorm 1.2 (using another LMS is not an option).

I have a course with Test down approach where learner have to review the topic based on the result they got during Test down. If they pass the test down they will be redirected to final "Thank you" slide meaning, they can skip the topic. And if they fail the Test down they have to go through the topic followed by a small quiz again. Now altogether I have three result slide including "Thank You" slide as result slide. Although I can mark completion and can track score if I go through second quiz but I am not able to track score and mark completion if I pass the Test down. Both the quiz are different.

I have attached a story file . Please help!

Hi Garima!

It sounds like you're looking to track a specific results slide based on which quiz the learner takes! Currently, you can track one results slide in Storyline. 

I know many community members have found workarounds for passing multiple scores to an LMS! Here's a similar thread.

Hello Leslie, I know this is an old thread but I think I almost have the solution :)

I have a pre and a post test, in the first I need the student to do it and send the score to the LMS, to check their knowledge before the course, in the second I also need the information sent to the LMS to check how much they have learned , but I only get the score of one of them to be sent,
Is it possible for both scores to be sent without there being a condition of approving the first to be able to do the second?

Hi Alice, 

Only one final score can be reported to an LMS, but we've expanded quiz tracking in Storyline 360 so you'll have more options when it comes to which quiz can be used for tracking. You can check out this article for more details: 

Storyline 360: More Quizzing and Tracking Options

Another option would be to store the score of the first quiz in a variable, and then sending this value to an LMS. Here's how you can do this. If none of these article help address your requirement, I'd recommend raising a feature request to our product team to let them know about any feature that you'd like to see in future releases of Storyline 360.
