Quiz with decreasing number of options

Apr 05, 2013


I'd like to create a quiz with 4 color cards (black, blue, yellow, red). The user listens to a color (ex: blue) and clicks on the corresponding card. Then the card disappears and there only remain 3, and so on and so forth til there's only one left.

Can I do it with a multiple choice quiz with the shuffle option? Do I need different slides or can it be done working with states and/or variables on a single slide?

Hi Manuel,

You could do that in a few ways, actually. However, it sounds like maybe a free form Pick Many may work best for you. You could use states, and possibly even layers to work with this.

Do you have a rough draft of your project? If you can share it, I'd be happy to take a look and see if I can give some suggestions.

You did a great job, Manuel! I was a little surprised to see my name, by the way, nice touch!

I like how you have this set up, upon first seeing the Story View I didn't know what to expect. I also like how the slides advance when the answer is correct. 

The only thing I can see in the course that I would adjust would be the hover color. It's just a personal preference, though, really. Personally, I just think it would be a little more seamless without the hover color.

I also really like that you've given the learner the opportunity to play the sound again. However, you may want to add some text to that. When I saw it, I thought it was a navigational button, simply because you're not including the "Next" button the player. Maybe just a little text that states something like "Listen to it again", etc.

Thanks Christine. You're completely right about the hovering. For some reason I thought it was a "default setting". Is there a quick way to remove that state from all items? I can do it one by one doing "Edit States > Hover > Format shape > No fill" but maybe there's a better option. I will also make some adjustments to the "listen again" button to make it more intuitive.

Hi Manuel,

The quickest method would be to use the Format Painter  

  • Select your first radio button.
  • Enable state editing. 
  • Select the "Hover" state and adjust the color, or remove the color by selecting "No Fill" (same steps you took earlier).
  • Finish state editing by clicking on "Done editing states".
  • Select the radio button you just changed and double-click on the Format Painter in the top left-hand corner of Storyline.

Now, you can click on each radio button on your slide and it should adjust the "Hover" state.

Let me know if you have any trouble with this.
