Hi,

We have a specific scenario for Quiz in Storyline 2, where we want to add 0.5 points to a couple to questions. Articulate doesnt allow to do that. Is there any work around for this?

Regards,

Abhishek

Make your 0,5 point questions => 1 point questions

and your 1 point questions => 2 point questions?

If your problem is just the weight of some questions, this can solve your problem.

Hi Chris,

Let me explain the scenario to you. We have different weightage for
different questions for eg. 0.5, 1, 2, 5. The overall points is 25 and we
cannot really exceed the points/weightage since we need to match the overall
points to 25.

Regards,

Abhishek

Hello Abhishek,

You can multiply all your weights x 2. This will give you an overall score of 50 points. But you can always present to the user a score on 25. You can do this by not presenting the 'Results.ScorePoints' in the results, but rather create a new variable (I created a numeric variable calles SCORE), give this variable the amount of points scored (1) and use the a trigger (2) to give this variable the points divided by 2.

Hi Abhishek,

It looks like Christophe has been able to assist you here, as there isn't a half point option within Storyline.

Christophe, I'd appreciate it if you could upload a sample of this workaround.  I need to use this solution, but am unable to get any value beside 0 to appear as my "manipulated score."  I set the default value of the manipulated score variable to 0.

What piece am I missing?

My work is attached.

Thanks!

Hello Michael,

Thank for sharing your work. I immediately could find the bug in your project.

While experimenting with the solution you have created not 1 but 2 results slide. During your development of course the first one was deleted. But Articulate remembers because if you open the list of variables (by clicking  on the variables pane) you will see the following overview of existing variables:

Notice that you see a 'Results.ScorePercent' and a 'Results1.ScorePercent'.

The questions report to the Results1.ScorePercent, so that was the bug in your project. In the first trigger you wanted to set the value equal to Results.ScorePercent and not Results1.ScorePercent.

So just make sure this first trigger is changed and your project should work.

Kind regards,

Ahh.  As usual the devil is in the details.  I had created 2 Results slides as my project will have multiple "knowledge checks."  I removed one before I posted it here to make it simple.

Thanks again, Christophe, for sharing your expertise!

In the snapshot above, variables Results1.nnnn are used and Results.nnnn are no longer used.

Is there any way to remove the results variables that are no longer used in the course?

Hi Sam,

You won't be able to delete the results slide variables. You may want to look at removing the extra results slides themselves and then importing it into a new .story file.
