results calculating from number of questions attempted = bad

Oct 20, 2014

Hi Everybody,

I have a really interesting problem involving quiz tracking.

I have three modules that are simply assessments. The problem is that when you answer a question and get it right it sets your score as 100% (you need 80% to pass) - if you close the course at this stage it says you have completed the course.

If you answer two questions and get one wrong it gives you 50%.

I can't see a way to get it to stop doing this - calculating the % based on number of questions correct out of the number attempted. Obviously I want it to do number correct out of total number of questions.

Can anyone help?

Hello James!

This might have something to do with how the individual results slides are set up.  However, if you are not seeing this in a new file, you may want to try importing this file into a new Storyline file.

You may also want to try running a repair in Storyline.

you can also attach your file here for a closer look.

Hi Emily,

Thanks for your input. I don't think I need to do a repair however as when I make a new course it runs fine - in fact I can't for the life of me replicate the fault and there is no setting i can see that makes it calculate the percent from number of questions attempted.

I will try the import into a new storyline file, but when I have done that in the past it looses a lot of variable and player associations which is a bit frustrating.

If there is a setting that tells storyline to calculate the percent from number of questions attempted/total number of questions it would be nice to know.

Interestingly in Storyline 2 you can only import a template file. I realise I can just save my project as a template and import it but I am not going to go this route as there will be a loss of associations in doing that and given the nature of this fault it might be best to start a-fresh with a good deal of copy-pasting.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the help.

I've gone an done a complete rebuild and it is working perfectly. This project was one that went off to UAT and had some pretty big changes afterwards (originally didn't track a score) as well as being upgraded to Storyline 2. In the end I think it just got a bit corrupt and a good example of the fact that when changes are big, it's better to just restart rather than frankenstien a project.

Unfortunately Steve due to privacy policy restrictions I can't upload this one.
