How to build a self-assessment/diagnosis


I am building an eLearning guide to help upskill people who work in our pricing department. Lots of people in the department are very skilled at some elements but less so at others. As a result, the MD wants to build our a department-wide learning path.

Part of this is to have a self-assessment/diagnosis across the five key disciplines within pricing, so they know which of the five areas they need to focus on.

The only thing I can think of is to have five questions with multiple answers, sort of a tick box exercise.

I've attached an outline of what it may look like, well three possibilities. It's a little vague but hopefully you get the idea! What's possible? What's not? I presume whatever happens I might be off to a world of variables!

This is what i'm trying to do. I've narrowed it down!

On one slide they have a question or piece of text.

Then they tick what they are currently doing in their role, leaving some of the boxes unticked.

I then what the documents relating to the unselected boxes to be displayed on the next screen.

So if I leave A, B and E unticked i'll be shown Doc A, B and E on the next slide.

Then repeat 4 or 5 times with other questions/statements.

Is that doable?

Hi Ian,

That is absolutely possible! Here's what you'll need to do:

On slide 1.1

  1. Create a T/F variable for each tick box with a default value of False
  2. Add a trigger to each tick box that adjusts the corresponding variable to True when that box is selected

On slide 1.2

  1. Set the default state of the rectangles to hidden
  2. Add a trigger to each rectangle that changes the state of the rectangle to True when the corresponding variable is equal to True

That should be it! Let me know if you run into any issues.

Awesome. That worked - thank you! I need to play around with Variables more; they make sense like this, but as soon as I stop using them i'm back to square one and posting here.

I made a slight tweak and added a 40% transparent layer over the top and had them sit on top of the A, B, C etc on slide 1.2 and are set to hidden when the users ticks a box on slide 1.1. This means that there aren't any uneven gaps and the users can still see the docs, but aren't prompted to necessarily click on them.
