TIP: Completion in Storyline 3 Without Quiz Questions or Tracking By Slides Viewed
How do you track completion in a Storyline 3 (or earlier) course in the following situations?
- The course has separate quizzes, and the user might only need to complete some of them (due to branching).
- The course doesn’t include quizzes. It has optional slides and/or branching, so it wouldn’t work to track completion via number of slides viewed.
The answer: Include a disguised-question slide that will always be answered correctly and a disguised-results slide to use for tracking completion.
See how this works in the the attached Storyline 3 file. (It's not pretty, but it does include instructions.)
BTW, this method isn't needed if you have Storyline 360. That has a Completion trigger. It now also has the option to track completion based on different quizzes. So an upgrade to 360 is certainly a more elegant solution. But this will work when you can't afford the upgrade.
