WHEN will Storyline be able to save a CUSTOM quiz score to an LMS?
Dec 30, 2016
This issue has been discussed for years on this forum and still Storyline stops us from saving a custom score variable to an LMS. Various tricks and workarounds have been suggested but they all dodge the fundamental need to be able to simply set 'results.scorepoints' = a custom variable.
My requirement is this: the user completes an exercise in which they make decisions on actions to take, equipment to use, etc. The outcome of this assessment of 'judgement' is a score (e.g: 73), based on the decisions an expert would make. I now want to send this numeric value from Storyline to the LMS as their quiz score. And Storyline won't do it.
If there were only a few possible scores then after completing my test I could trick SL by running automatically through a sequence of hidden 'Numeric Entry' quiz questions, each awarding a successively greater score. (e.g: If Entry = 0, score = 0, If Entry = 1, Score =1, etc.). I could get away with 20 checks if I awarded scores at 5% intervals but then the test results would be rounded, which loses their accuracy.
I've also tricked it by running automatically through a set of 'hidden' Multi-Choice questions, setting each answer to award a different score value ('Score by Choice') and then forcing each answer State to be set as 'Selected' according to the value of my custom quiz score.
But what an absolute pain in the backside these silly 'workarounds' are, both to set up and to edit!
