# Setting up a System to Track Progress in Storyline 2

Jan 25, 2017

I am trying to find a way to track time spent on a task and award points based on the amount of time spent on that task as a quiz. I have a quiz set up that offers options for stating that a person spent .25 or 1/4 hour on the task, .50 or 1/2 hour on the task, 1 hour on the task, etc. How can I set up the scoring for this to award .25 of a point for the first answer (.25), .50 of a point for the second answer (.50 of an hour), 1 point for an hour, etc? Also, how could I set up the results slide to accurately reflect the points awarded for each answer. There is no necessary target score they must achieve; it is simply a way for me to track their time.

Very interesting problem. I have some ideas floating in my head but I have to jot them down. I'll get back to you.

Javscript is probably the most accurate timing method. Once you have the elapsed time, you'd need to work the math to figure out the points, then user Player.SetVar("<project_variable_name>, <points_you_calculated>). Articulate's forums have several good resources for variables & Results
