questionnaire results in Storyline

I know there have been a few posts asking how to do a magazine style questionnaire, but all of the responses and tutorials have focused on answers that can be quantified on a points basis (less likely, likely, more likely, etc.).  I have a questionnaire (attached) that has six answers per question and needs to be scored in terms of how many of each answer the person gives.  I could have the results slide as a bar graph or simply a "pass" slide which indicates the category of the highest number of answers given.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance,

Frances

See attached file with one possible option. I used regular Multiple Choice questions for layout purposes, but don't use the score generated by these questions. Instead, I check the selected state of each options and, if selected, increase a custom variable. At the end, I show a simple bar for each answer count, with the state representing the number of choices. I did that for a, b, and c. Hopefully, you can extend this to include all categories. Hope that gives you some ideas.

Hi Frances,

Not sure what's going on...does your results slide have a retry button that resets the score? This can be added by clicking the Edit Results slide button (in the pane on the right). When the Result Slide Properties window opens, click options on the left, and then place a checkmark in the allow user to retry quiz checkbox.

A button is placed on the results slide that includes a reset results trigger

Thanks, Rebecca.  I tried that.  The issue is that  if you look at my quiz above, my answers add 1 to "a" count, "b" count, etc.  Even when I reset my results slide, the accumulation keeps happening for my question responses.  So if on the first time through, the user answered all "a"s, but on the second time they take the quiz they answer one "a" and five "b"s, the highest tally ends up as "a" instead of "b" because their answers haven't cleared from the first test, only the results.  I have it set so the slide goes back to initial state but I don't know how to make the tally go back to the initial state.

Hi Frances,

I've attached your file and set things up so the Retry works. I inserted a Retry button on your results slide that resets the results and jumps back to the first slide when Learners click it. I've inserted references for all 6 counts on that slide so you can see what's going on. 

There are a couple other issues with this file. I fixed one: for several of the MC slides the "submit interaction" trigger was NOT the bottom one in the trigger panel, so not all the counts were tallying.

The other thing is that if Learners select an equal amount from two different counts, nothing will appear in the text box. So I think you'll need to rethink what your results slide looks like, or how you're tallying things. Michael's solution might work for you.

Good luck!

Thanks, for that.  But it still has the same problem.  If you go through, and click all "a" answers the first time, and then hit the retry button, and then click 1 "a" and 4 "b"s the second time, it still tells you you're in the Shock Stage (a) because there are 6 a answers cumulatively across the two tests and only 4 b answers across the two tests.  (see attached).

I need them to know which stage they're in each time without the answers accumulating across attempts.

A cumulative tally won't work.  I solved the issue of equal from two different counts in the actual redo, but it still won't solve the tallying across attempts issue.

Hey Frances,

Tx for catching that. I don't have a ton of time (I'm thinking neither does anyone with Christmas around the corner!!), but I was able to reset things by adding a trigger to the Retry button on the Results slide: Adjust the variable for the a count to 0 (zero) when Learners click the Retry button.

(Set aCount=0)

Position is important.

Seems to have done the trick. I got the Shock stage the first time through (clicked all a's) and the Hope stage the second time through (clicked 1a and the rest b's).

I think you'll probably want to add that reset to 0 for all your variables.

Please shout out with any other questions...I'll be back at some point, but others will undoubtedly jump in as well.

I really appreciate your help with this.  It does look like that will reset things--the problem is linking the trigger t to the retry button.  Users will generally re-take the quiz at a later date, maybe weeks after they took it the first time round, and the quiz would have to reset when they go back to the initial slide.  Is there a way of putting that trigger on or before the first question so the values reset when the quiz restarts?

Hi Frances,

Glad we're at least on the right track.

I guess I'm not clear on where or how the original data is being saved. Is this being done through an LMS? If so, I guess the resetting would be done there?

And if it's played in a browser, let's say you get to the end and you're in the Shock stage. You close out the browser.

When you go back to the same address, you receive the "would you like to resume from where you left off" prompt. If you say no, then you start from scratch...so the quiz is reset. If you say yes, you'd get back to the Results page and if you click the Retry button the quiz is reset.

Sorry for my lack of clarity. Hopefully someone else can jump in!

Thanks, that actually helped me think through a possible solution.  Access would be on a browser.  The quiz is currently part of a general self help program, which has lots of information, and I think what I might have to do is to make the quiz separate, disable the "would you like to resume" prompt, and that way it would reset every time they use it.  Does that make sense?
