Quizzing with multiple choices

Hi Jeanette

I'm trying to set up a self evaluation activity using the quiz slides.  How it works is that each question they have to choose out of three outcomes, and each is given a numerical choice value.  I then want to add up the score at the end of the question series.  I'm having trouble sequencing the quiz, however, becuase it keeps telling me when I preview it that the answers (if not the 'correct' or optimal scored one) are incorrect and not letting me progress.  How can I configure it so that the learner works through all the slides then it tallies the score at the end, taking into account their choices?

Hope this is clear.


Thanks!

Jeanette

Hi Jeanette,
First, make sure your users can answer each question only once (seems to me you have it set to unlimited).

Then set feedback of your quiz slides to "None".

Assuming your choice values are the same in every question, that should probably do it.
Otherwise you may (or may not) have to use variables to calculate the final score.

I wanted to do something similar to this in the past too, but couldn't figure out how to make it work.  Kind of like a magazine quiz where you answer a question, each answer is weighted differently and then you get feedback after the series of questions based on your cumulative score.

I got stuck though in that I couldn't figure out how to have more than one "correct" answer. :-/

In my case, having just one "correct" answer ended up working out ok, but it would have been cooler the other way...

Thanks Alexandros - perfect - it now works a treat!

Kristin - I got it to work by selecting the scores by 'choice' not by question and then setting my variable answers as you can see below.  I then did a final custom report where I had my rankings all on one page, using variables based on the number response to give the learner the correct feedback.  It seems to work quite well so far!.
