Variables with question level triggers

Dec 04, 2013

I have a quiz that contains questions of three difficulty levels.  Here is what I want to do:

1:  show total result that includes scores of all the questions

2:  show total questions correct per each difficulty level

So basically the results slide will show four things

1:  Total score

2:  # of difficulty level 1 correct

3:  # of difficulty level 2 correct

4:  # of difficulty level 3 correct

Also, I would want to know if this quiz hosted on Articulate Online can show the report all the four scores so that I can run stats on the class that takes this quiz.

One solution that I thought of was creating variables for each difficulty level and incrementing the variables as the student correctly answers the question in that difficulty level correct.  But I do not know the trigger that I would use for the adjustment of that variable.  Is there is a question level trigger that says that this question is correct or incorrect?

I look forward to your response.

HI Payal,

You are correct that you could use a number variable to show how the student is doing on the various difficulty levels.  You would trigger that on each question based upon the specific selection.  For example....

Let's say you have a multiple choice question.  Each of the answers is, itself, an object on the screen that you can target.  So, if the the correct answer is "A", then you would increment the variable when the user clicks submit on the condition that the A is in the selected state.

Just make sure to have your trigger fire before the interaction is submitted:

As for Articulate Online, I'm not positive, but I don't think it's possible to track individual variable values.

I hope this helps!
