Quiz Scoring Variable Not Working

I'm trying to show the total score for a quiz using the total points variable. I changed the point value for each correct answer/question to 1 instead of the default of 10. But when I take the quiz and get a few wrong (there are 20 questions), my score is usually 25. I have double-checked all the question points, so that's not the issue. All of the questions are free-form drag and drops using the standard player Submit button. The questions are in four scenes and the Results slide is in another scene.

First string is: %Results.ScorePoints% 

I'm also using %quizNumQuestions%  which is working fine

What could be wrong? I'm stumped. This is in Storyline 360.

Thanks.

Hey Amy!

From what you've described, it sounds like you set everything up correctly. I can see why you're feeling stumped! Mind sharing your project file with me? Sometimes it helps to have a second pair of eyes to spot the culprit.

Also, you don't need to put the %Results.ScorePercent% variable off to the side. That data will be sent to your LMS automatically, as long as you included a results slide in your course.

Can I send it privately?

I also have duplicate variables. I know this happens a lot. Not exactly sure why--unless the base file had a results slide that was deleted and I added a new results slide. Is it preferable to use %Results1.ScorePoints% ? I just know I can't delete any of the duplicate variables.

 I'm glad you figured something out. Keep in mind, for the custom variable, Storyline isn't designed to report that to your LMS and there isn't a way to adjust the built-in results slide variables. 

Plenty of other users have mentioned passing custom variables to their LMS as a score here in ELH, and it'll likely involve some Javascript. If that's a bit outside your realm of expertise, I'm sure someone in the community could help!

Going off of that. If it gets to LMS test, we'll see what happens. Maybe I'll set up a different completion. This isn't measurement. It's learn-by-quizzing.
