Shuffle answers does not work for any type of SL quiz question?

May 26, 2012

Previously, I explored creating a drag and drop quiz question and discovered that when you retry the quiz, the answers do not shuffle even though return to initial state is checked. I thought it was a physical thing related to that type of question. However, I tried other types of quiz questions and it appears that they also do not allow you to shuffle answers. Is this correct or am I doing something wrong? This is important to me so my students don't learn to answer the question by the order of the answer vs learning the actual content. Sorry to ask so many questions.

Drat - I was really hoping it was something that I was doing wrong. I have been using Articulate modules for homework and since I started doing quizzes this way, test scores have zoomed. So, unfortunately this is a make-or-break deal for me for Storyline. I hope this feature gets added quickly before I go too much further down another path as I really like all the other things SL can do. I will try again to put this feature request in (kept getting bounced out for some reason - probably due to my computer). Thanks, Mike. [BTW - loved your Psych module].

Thanks, Peter. I know you probably cannot tell me this but I really do like storyline so I thought I would ask just in case. I am in the process of making course resources for January. Would there be a chance this feature could be available by then? I have the go-ahead from my school to increase this type of learning and would like to choose SL. I have students coming back two - three years later thanking me and saying they remembered everything they had on an articulate module - it really works. I have them in 6th and 7th grade and they are getting 100% on their high school pop quizzes (even when they haven't done the reading that the quiz covered). On their assessment tests, they tell me that they think they got some answers correct but everything that was covered by a module - they KNOW they got correct.

I also am spending my summer making resources to help review for our state assessment tests. Some of these resources will be used in the the fall but the majority after the first of the year. If this feature would be available by January, I could get started now then just add the shuffling and hopefully motion paths then. I know I can import presenter and quizmaker into SL but it would involve a major redo as I would format the modules completely differently to take advantage of SL. Thanks for listening.
