Quiz branching

Oct 14, 2014

Hi, is there any way to branch a quiz in Storyline (1) so that if you have two different sets of workers, they can complete different questions, but still be graded the same at the end. The closest way I can find is to have two separate quizzes and use a results slide that grades them based on both quizzes, but their final score as a percentage will be half of what it should be if I do that.

What I really want is two question banks, each containing 7 questions, and if you are worker type 1, you answer questions from question bank 1, and if you are worker type 2, you answer questions from bank 2, then the results slide gives you a result based on the 7 questions you answered, not the full 14 questions, 7 of which you didnt...

Does anyone understand what I mean?! And if you do, would you mind telling me I can't do it, so that I can move on?!!

Not exactly, I know I can do that, but how do I report on it?

You can only submit one results slide to complete it. I can add another results slide that reports on both results, but you can only set it as either pass both, or a combined score with a pass rate. The most anyone can get then is 50% though, so the pass rate has to be stupidly low, and that's what reports back to the LMS.

What I really want is that you answer 7 questions out of 14, but the 7 you answer is determined by which person you are, and not from 7 random questions being pulled out.

Hello, Joseph!

Currently, Storyline lets you track a course either by the number of slides viewed, by course completion trigger, or by a single quiz (result slide). You have a couple options if you need to track multiple quizzes, depending on the quiz the learner chooses. 

  • If you simply want to mark the course as "passed" if the learner receives a passing score, you should check out the course completion trigger.
  • If you do need to track the actual quiz scores, I'll leave it to the community to help you set up that custom quiz. This similar discussion is a good place to start!

Thanks for checking in, R!

We got our eye on this concept and will definitely let you know if we add the ability for tracking branching quiz results in a future update

In the meantime, have you had a chance to explore the approaches Alyssa mentions above? Also, check out this nifty example. Could any of those ideas work for what you are looking to do?
