Rounding of Referenced Numeric Variables Upon Module Resume (Case #02492198)
I am currently running a chemistry laboratory experiment through a Storyline 360 module which contains many numeric variable entries to collect experimental data. Students enter their numeric values (for instance 29.485) and then the numeric variable is called later through a reference in the experiment to summarize their results in a data table. This all works beautifully, all digits are recorded as entered and then output into the table. No data is rounded.
Here's where things have become interesting, similar to the report (01899822), when a student leaves, comes back and resumes the module some values are truncated/rounded.
The values that students entered directly into the numeric entry fields, retain their original state (so 29.485 stays that way) BUT when we go to the summary table for the referenced of the numeric variable (%numericEntry1% for instance), the number is truncated (29.49).
This is somewhat problematic for the resume to behave this way for our particular course since significant figures are one of the learning outcomes being tested when students take their data outside of the module....so it is unfortunate that this truncation happens for folks that resume the module.
Perhaps (and it's my hope) I am missing something incredibly obvious with respect to printing the values of a numeric variable entry elsewhere in the module. Looking for advise/feedback from the Heroes Community!
I'm going to explore simply going the text entry route for the next experiment module build that releases in a few weeks (to 1200 students) and I can count on my text not being rounded on resume :) But would definitely prefer to find a resolution for the use of numeric entry in this case to ensure calculation features are still available to us in the module builds.
