Tracking multiple result slides in SL2

I have a course in which the user gets to choose his level/path, one out of three possible paths. Each path ends with a quiz and finally a Results slide, with a passing score of 70% (7 out of 10 questions correct). The user only gets to follow one path.

SL2 can only track one result slide. How can I make sure that all 3 result slides get tracked properly?

I tried adding one more 'master' result slide, which calculates the results for the existing 3 result slides. However, then the user must either pass all 3 quizzes (which is impossible) or the results of all 3 quizzes are combined, which is also impossible. Whatever I try, it seems mandatory that all 3 quizzes are visited.

Any ideas?

Hi there Sara, that's a great question! I've seen folks adjust the overall passing score on the final results slide based on the total number of quizzes in the course. Since there are a total of 30 questions in your course, and the learner is required to get 7 correct, the passing score would be 7/30 or 23%. Pop on into this similar thread--you'll find lots of ideas there!

Thanks Alyssa, I managed to set it up and test it in our LMS.

However, not with the desired outcome :( The results don’t get communicated correctly - maybe an LMS issue, I don't know. I finished the course successfully, but the status is still ‘in progress’ instead of ‘passed’.

 The course consists of 3 paths/levels, each ending with its own quiz. The user can only follow one path. The quiz of each path consists of 10 questions, with a passing score of 70%. So there are 3x10=30 questions in total.

I have ended each quiz with a results slide, which uses the 10 quizzes of that path, with a passing score of 70%. But Storyline can only track 1 result slide.

So I have included a fourth results slide, as suggested, the ‘Master results slide’. This Master results slide tracks all 30 questions, and has a passing score of 23% (7/30 questions correct). This Master results slide is the tracked slide in Storyline. The user never visits the Master results slide, it’s in a separate scene which the user never sees.

This should, in theory, work, right? Or doesn’t it, because the user never visits the Master slide?

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure I understand what you mean. How can I add this one Master slide in between the question pools and the 'real' results slide which displays the results?

I now deleted all 3 regular results slide, and have only the master results slide left. Each of the 3 paths has its own number variable (1-3) and the correct score is shown by changing those variables. So I think it should work. However, because I work with 3 different question pools for each of the different paths, I don't know how to point to that 1 results slide from each of those pools. Sounds silly, but I can't figure it out.

See the attached screenshot for a simple schedule of the desired path.

From an introduction slide, the user is directed (via that number variable again) to either question pool 1, 2 or 3. After answering 10 random questions, the user should end up at the master results slide.

But that step doesn't work :( See the screenshot of the scene. I just get directed to the second, and then the third question pool.

How do I direct the user to the Master results slide after having done 1 question pool?

I think I got it!

I kept all 4 results slides. I set a trigger to go to the fourth Master results slide (which is trakced) immediately when the regular Results slide is visited. And a trigger on that master results slide to go back from the result slide you came. immediately after as well. I set it so that it only happens once.

Now that this master results slide is visited by the user, the LMS also recognizes the passed state, and communicates it correctly. Hooray!

Hi Abdelraheem,

I can't share the story file, unfortunately, as my company does not allow for the content to be shared. But I can share my solution with you.

The course consists of 3 paths/levels, each ending with its own quiz. The user can only follow one path. The quiz of each path consists of 10 questions, with a passing score of 70%. So there are 3x10=30 questions in total. I have ended each quiz with a results slide, which uses the 10 questions of that path, with a passing score of 70%. The problem: Storyline can only track 1 result slide.

So I have included a fourth results slide, the ‘Master results slide’. This Master results slide tracks all 30 questions, and has a passing score of 23% (7/30 questions correct). This Master results slide is the tracked slide when publishing.

For the LMS to recognize the Master results slide, the user has to visit it. So I set a trigger on each of the three regular results slides, to go to the fourth Master results slide immediately when the regular Results slides is visited. And a trigger on that master results slide to go back from the result slide you came, immediately after as well. I set it so that it only happens once. Otherwise you would go back and forth.

Hope that helps!

Hi there, Jean-Mathieu!

While Storyline can only track a single quiz (result slide) at this time, branching quizzes is a great option if you need to track multiple quizzes at once. 

If you go the master results slide route, you'll need to choose how the results should be calculated:

  • User must pass each quiz: Select this option if learners must pass each individual quiz (represented by each result slide) in order to pass the overall course. 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.

(More on adding result slides and configuring their properties here!) I'll leave it to the community to share more insight around custom quiz tracking, but I'm hoping this information will help you get started. 

If there's anything else I can answer, I'll be here!

I would like to have a third option:

When I develop a training in two languages, there are two scenes, one for each language.

Would be nice to have two quizzes, based on the same language selections, where we can calculate on the master result slide:

  • User must pass one quiz òr the other

Setting the passing score to 40% is not accurate, the user can take the first five questions in Language 1 and the same questions in Language 2.

It's a pity that I not can calculate the final score that is send to the LMS.

I'm facing the same problem that Jean-Mathieu mentions. I have multiple quiz paths, but I don't want it to feed back 50% to the LMS if the student got 100% on the quiz they took; that will just lead to confusion.  Is it possible to do this with Javascript?  Can the project variables be modified with Javascript (or only user generated variables)?
