State Change from Results Slide

Mar 09, 2015

Hi all,

I have 5 scenes on a Starting Scene. Then there is a "Home" slide for the topic with several lessons to complete. Each lesson needs a passing score of 100%. My question is how do I set up the variable on the Results slide to manage each separate lesson? Here are the screen shots.

The user picks a role:

And then must pass all of the modules at 100%. Ideally I would like to add a Google Form once all lessons are 100% (and possibly add a check mark as they are completed), but any feedback on managing these pieces would be most welcome!

Thank you,

Hi Dan,

I'm not sure what you mean in regards to "manage the variable on the results slide" but you could use a master results slide to combine all the scores or ensure the user passes each one as detailed here: 

If you're tracking other result slides, choose how the results should be calculated:

  • User must pass each quiz: Select this option if learners must pass each individual quiz (represented by the tracked result slides) in order to pass the overall course (represented by the final result slide). If learners fail any quiz in the course, then they fail the entire course.
  • Combine points from each quiz: Select this option if you want the scores from all tracked result slides to be added together as the final score for the course, then enter a percentage in the Passing Score field. In this scenario, a learner could fail one or more of the individual quizzes and still pass the overall course.  (Not if all your courses were set to a passing rate of 100% and your final results slide was as well).

If you only want it to change based on the score of 100% you'll need to set up some triggers. What I would do is place a adjust variable trigger on the success layer of the accompanying results slide - so that it changes "RectangleOneVisitied" from false to true when the timeline starts on the slide layer. You'll then need to add a trigger to adjust the visited state of the object based on the value of the variable being equal to True.

Thanks so much for the help Ashley!

I have a a layer trigger on the success layer of the Results slide set to true when the timeline starts (default is false). And, I have this added as an object trigger for the rectangle:

I still get the visited state when I click to any slide in the project, though.

Hi Dan,

I wouldn't use the "variable changes" trigger - as that's looking for the variable to change, and it's probably getting tripped up in terms of looking for the change which is probably happening on your layers? That won't be reported back to fire the trigger - as the variable needs to change on that slide. You may want to look into when timeline starts or something similar based on the condition - if the variable is set outside of the main slide, you'll be able to revisit the slide and have the checkmarks appear even if the slide is set to "reset to initial state" which allows the timeline to start a new.
