Survey scoring (as opposed to quiz scoring) in Storyline 3/Quizmaker?

Nov 28, 2019



Sorry this is a bit of a loose question. I am not a regular user of Articulate (only when I have access to a school's resources when I freelance).

I am trying to ascrertain a number of things First and foremost, whether I can use any of the Articulate products (except 360 as I don't have access to that for the time being) to create a SURVEY as opposed to a QUIZ. Surveys have many shapes and forms, but let's take one example. A number of survey questions have answers A or B. No right or wrong answer but each answer scores a point in one of 5 categories (like pshychological traits for example). For each question/answer, A and B do not score in the same category. In other words, the rule is specific to each question: question one, A scores in category 2 and B in category 5, question 2 A scores in Category 4 and B in category 3 etc...I then total the scores in each category to determine a profile (like in personality tests).

I also have surveys based  Likert Scale questions. That also reuires a flexible "scoring" method.

I know that Storyline 3 imports Quizmaker outputs, but I don't know that Quizmaker can handle the above. I also remember I think that Storyline can use variables and I am wondering whether that is a way of scoring a survey-type questionnaire.

I would really appreciate your comments and suggestions and if you have had direct experience of building and scoring surveys with any Articulate component, I would certainly love to see examples (if they are not confidential or commercially sensitive of course).

Thank you all for reading me.

Hi Remi. You might find this helpful also. It is a survey (as in psych type surveys) with 3 questions for each of 6 result categories (18 questions in all). The three questions use Likert type scale and give a total score for each of the 6 categories.The 6 results are shown using sliders. You can see it at and the storyline module is attached.
