scoring in a multiple choice question list

Apr 01, 2014


I have created a quizz under the form of a multiple choice (in Storyline).  There are 4 possible answers to the question.  2 of the 4 answers are the right ones.

Tell me if I am wrong ... but if I choose only 1 of the 2 right answers, the result will be 0 good answer thus 0 %.  Although 1 of 2 should give a result of 50 %.

The question is : is it possible to make the software recording 50 % as result and not 0 % in that situation ?  I guess that I could us variables but I don't have any idea how to make it possible ...

Thank you for your help and support.

Kind regards.

Hi Etienne,

You can provide a score by answer with a multiple choice question, although not a multiple response which sounds like what you're trying to use? Also, there is no partial scoring in Storyline, so you'll need to go the route of variables. It's a popular feature request to have expanded abilities for grading. You're also welcome and encouraged to share your thoughts there on other question types you'd like to see.

I am working on this same issue as it seems to make the functionality of Storyline less user-friendly. This isn't an area I want to be spending my time on when I have other things going on. I also don't like that I had to spend time searching how to get it done. An individual grading feature should be available on all multiple choice answers just like it is in freeform.  As my company grows not having that feature could be the downfall of using your tool globally.

That works for multiple choice but not for multiple answer. If the taker doesn't get all options right they get a 0. If the amount of test questions is low this will cause the learner to fail because they can't reach the passing minimum. 

Am I doing something wrong or is the function not available for multiple answer questions. If not, that is very strange, because it is a natural spot to score each answer.

Thanks! I’m not even sure how I overlooked that. ☺
