Submit all answers at once with unanswered questions?

Jan 31, 2014


I am trying to get rid of the "Invalid Answer - You must complete the question before submitting" pop-up that occurs in my exam when I click my personalized "Grade Exam" button. I need to have the exam allow our customers to grade their exams with unanswered questions, if they choose. I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of this without sacrificing other conditions I've created within the file.

Is this something I can opt out of somewhere? I'm having trouble figuring it out.

The exams need to:

- Be submitted all at once (can't submit one at a time, we want them to be able to go back and change their answers)

- Be graded from any slide (I've created my own "Grade Exam" button but can't get rid of the pop-up issue)

- No feedback while taking the exam and no shuffling

- Unlimited attempts to change answers

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

I should also add that when I test my exam and submit my results I will also see this Invalid Answer pop-up while still on the results slide or if I'm reviewing the exam. This is even after I've answered all questions in the exam. Also, when this happens, clicking "OK" just to get rid of the pop-up doesn't do anything. The pop-up remains. I do not want this pop-up showing up anywhere in the exam.

All questions are multiple choice, if that makes any difference.

Hi Melanie,

You can customize the message by changing your player's text labels, and you can also change the colors of the pop-up by customizing your player colors.

However, since this prompt is handled internally by Storyline, it's not possible to modify the other elements. It's also not possible to switch it "on" or "off". This message is called by the player when there's an answer missing - as you've already seen - and the prompt is in place to let learners know they haven't finished. If you'd like to see more options for this or other prompts, please let our development team know.

One way around this would be to built a completely customized quiz. Another would be to use survey-type questions and not require an answer from any of the quiz/survey questions. 

I'm sure others will have some suggestions for you as well. 

In the meantime, though, let us know if you find something that works for you. 

Good luck on the project!
