Tally correct/incorrect answers on one results slide

Oct 19, 2020


Is there a way to show the learner their answers to interspersed quiz questions all on the same results slide. I don't want the learner to go back and review each question individually. I want more of a tally showing which ones are correct and incorrect on one page.

Hi Jennifer,

It doesn't matter how widespread your questions are, you can add any question you want to a Results slide in order to get a tally of how many questions were answered correctly. However, if you want to be able to show if particular questions were answered correctly or not, I think you will need to set up a custom Results slide.

The way I would tackle this is to allocate a True/False variable to the correct answer for each of your questions. When the user hits the Submit button on a question, the variable would be changed from False to True only if they had selected the correct answer (this would need to be the first trigger for the Submit button). I would then create a custom Results slide (could be more than one slide or several layers if you had a lot of questions), which would show the question and either a green tick or a red cross against each one to show if it had been answered correctly or not. The state change from green tick to red cross would be controlled by the state of the respective variable.

If you are working with a number of questions that are grouped in specific topics, I would suggest having a Results slide with a different layer for each topic. This would enable the user to page through each topic and clearly see which ones they needed to work on and where they had also done well. If you wished to do so, you could also include the correct answer to the questions that they got wrong. Again, the appearance of the answer could be controlled by the variables that control the tick/cross.

There may well be a simpler solution, but this is how I would tackle it.

Hope this helps.
