Articulate Storyline supports scoring for correct responses and incorrect responses. You can even use negative point values for incorrect responses to give learners more nuanced scoring.

Assigning Points in Form View

To assign point values to a question slide in Form View:

  1. Determine how scores will be handled for the question. Go to the Question tab on the ribbon and use the Score drop-down to select one of the following:
    • None: This makes the question ungraded. It's only available for freeform questions.
    • By question: This is the default option. It lets you assign a point value for getting the question right and another point value for getting it wrong.
    • By choice: This option lets you assign a different score to each answer choice. It's only available for some question types, including Multiple Choice, Word Bank, Freeform Pick One, and Freeform Hotspot.
  2. Enter values in the point fields for correct and incorrect answers. If you're assigning points By question, the point fields are at the bottom of the window. If you're assigning points By choice, they're to the right of each answer choice. (Tip: Storyline supports positive and negative whole numbers.)
