Turning a variable into a scored question

Hi,  I have created a slide where there are various hazards to be identified in a picture.  I have put invisible hotspots over each hazard and added a variable to count when clicked..However I would like to capture the score from the variable (how many hazards were found) as part of a quiz.  Is this possible?

Hi Marion,

I haven't seen it with a hotspot quiz, but I have seen something similar with a multiple response, and scoring based on if they receive all the correct answers.  It involves some Javascript, which luckily we have a number of gurus in the community who hopefully will chime in to help you out.

This is great and I will definately use it but:

1 Will the assessment result screen be reportable to LMS? (eg is it scorm compliant)

2 Normally when I create an learning check I use the quiz templates and in my results screen I merely select the screens I want to score - can I add the results screen for the variable to a final results screen eg - could I have various different types of questions one of which was using the variable to score and add them all together for a course assessment.

Hope this makes sense

Hi Marion


After brainstorming for 2-3 days, I could find the solution for your prob.

I have developed a course having 2 quiz and a result slide. In slide 1, there are various hazards to be identified in a picture.  I have put visible hotspots over each hazard and added a variable to count when clicked. I have captured the score from the variable (how many hazards were found) and displayed it.This quiz is not developed with the built in storyline quiz template, so I cannot link it up to the result slide. I have used Javascript to send the score to LMS.


You can upload the output in scormcloud or any other LMS and check whether it is displaying pass/fail according to the score.


Feel free to send me message if you need help.

I'm about to update one of my old posts about this, but this can absolutely be done WITHOUT Java script.  You can use a variable to change the state of an answer on an assessment to it's selected state.
