Score obtained with screencast test mode

May 07, 2018

Hi everyone,

We are using screencast test mode in our storyline course. 

This time the  Screencast is a software simulation that users have to reproduce.
In this test we allowed 2 attempts which means that users may click two times before going to the next slide .

The slide score is automatically created with the variable scorepercent / scorepoints and  we wonder how the score obtained at the end is calculated.

Could someone help us to understand that ?

Thank you very much

Great question, Marie!

Each time a learner correctly clicks an answer on a Storyline Test Mode slide, they will receive 10 points by default. You can change that point value in Form View, if you would like. 

The Results.ScorePoints variable calculates the total number of points the learner received, and the Results.ScorePercent variable calculates the percent of slides with a correct "click" out of the total number of slides. 

I hope that answers your question!

Hi Cappie, 

Happy to help! 

This is dependent upon the number of attempts allowed. As an example, if a test slide question allowed for two attempts and the learner gets the question correct on their second attempt, then that question will be marked correct. If you only want the first response to be the reported answer, you will want to set the number of attempts to one. That way, the reported solution is based on the learner's first answer. 

In case this helps, we have a great resource that shares more details on this here:
