Using Variables to give points to individual multiple response ?

Sep 25, 2013

Hi everyone

I have an idea and I'm not sure it will work in Storyline--

I need to have a question where students can select an answer choice from two categories, and if the answer is correct in category one OR two, they receive one point, and if both answers are correct, they receive 2 points.

I keep thinking there must be a way to do this with variables, possibly if I set each correct answer point as a variable, and then tell storyline to count 1 point to the interaction if that variable is chosen? I get stuck at this point, because I'm not sure how to tell Storyline to do that...

any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Hi Kristi,

This thread is a bit older, so I'm not certain that any folks are still subscribed or able to share their ideas here but the results slide variables aren't accessible within Storyline, so you'll want to look at using some custom Javascript in regards to passing variables, and to get started you want to review the information here in regards to Best Practices with Javascript.
