Results Slide to Calculate Results based on a different set of questions at each attempt
Nov 09, 2016
We are using Storyline 1 to build a quiz (only a few content slides, rest are question slides). We have all our questions in question banks (9 banks in the project, based on separate learning outcomes/scenarios). There are more than 100 questions across the various banks, out of which 40 need to be served up randomly for each attempt of the quiz. The quiz has three attempts, and the passing score is 80%.
We created a scene (called Attempt 1) and inserted draws from these question banks. There is a Results slide at the end of the Attempt 1 scene. This slide has been set up to calculate results for all the draws in the Attempt 1 scene. So far, all good. (see screenshot below).
Is there a way I can configure the Results slide so that it resets after the first attempt of the quiz and then instead of calculating results again from the draws in the Attempt 1 scene, it calculates results from question draws in another scene, called Attempt 2 (see following screenshot)? I can make the Results slide jump to this new scene called Attempt 2 on the second attempt (using variables and conditions) but I cannot find a way to set it up to calculate results for different questions, based on different attempts. In the following screenshot, if I select all the draws from all the scenes (Attempt 1, Attempt 2, Attempt 3), then the Results are all messed up (because the total number of points is calculated by aggregating all the points across the different attempts). I want the total points to be reset after each attempt, and based on a different set of questions each time. There is a reason why the project needs to have separate draws for each attempt (long story), and I cannot use the same draws across multiple attempts (although I realise that the whole purpose of a question draw is to randomize questions across attempts). It still needs to be this way, because our scenario is quite complex and finding a way to make the Results slide work would be much simpler than re-structuring the project.
I am not sure if I have been able to explain the scenario clearly. It’s a bit complex and am happy to provide a copy of my project to clarify this.
Thanks in advance.
