Result slides give learners dynamic feedback at the end of quizzes and surveys. They also send reporting and tracking information to learning management systems, including learners' responses and scores.

You can use multiple result slides in a Storyline 360 course and even combine them for a composite score. In this tutorial, we'll look at adding result slides and configuring their properties.

  1. Add a Result Slide
  2. Identify the Questions to Be Tracked
  3. Define the Passing Score (for Graded Results)
  4. Enable the Quiz Timer
  5. Choose Result Slide Features
  6. Formatting Result Slide Buttons

Step 1: Add a Result Slide

  1. First, do any of the following:
    • Go to the Home tab on the ribbon, click New Slide, and choose Results.
    • Go to the Slides tab on the ribbon and click Results.
    • In Story View, right-click anywhere in the workspace, scroll to New Slide, and choose Results.
    • In Slide View or Form View, right-click anywhere in the Scenes panel, scroll to New Slide, and choose Results.
  2. When the Insert Slide window appears, choose the type of result slide you want to add. Use the filters on the left side of the window to narrow your choices. There are three result-slide types:
    • Graded: Choose a graded result slide when you want to track the score for the quiz. You'll have options to show the learner's score, the passing score, and passed/failed feedback.
    • Survey: Choose a survey result slide for non-graded assessments.
    • Blank: Choose a blank result slide when you need to send completion data to an LMS but want to design it from scratch. For example, you might want to disguise it as a summary, thank you, or standard content slide.
  3. Click Insert Slide to add the result slide to your course.

The Result Slide Properties window will appear, where you can identify the questions you want to track, define the passing score, and enable the quiz timer.

Step 2: Identify the Questions to Be Tracked

A result slide can track question slides or other result slides. Use the Calculate results for drop-down to select one of the following:

Selected questions

Use this option to track individual question slides and question draws.

Selected results slides

Use this option to combine other result slides into a cumulative score.

 

Then, mark the boxes for the question slides or result slides you want to track.

Step 3: Define the Passing Score (for Graded Results)

If you're tracking graded questions, enter a percentage in the Passing Score field.

How to set the passing score for a quiz result slide in Articulate Storyline 360

If you're tracking other result slides, choose how the results should be calculated:

User must pass each quiz

Select this option if learners must pass each individual quiz (represented by each result slide) in order to pass the overall course.

If learners fail any quiz in the course, then they fail the entire course.

Combine points from each quiz

Select this option if you want the scores from all tracked result slides to be added together as the final score for the course, then enter a percentage in the Passing Score field.

In this scenario, a learner could fail one or more of the individual quizzes and still pass the overall course.

 

How to combine results from multiple quizzes

Tip: When combining multiple result slides into a master result slide, learners will need to visit each of the tracked result slides at some point in order to complete the course. Otherwise, the course status will be marked incomplete.

Step 4 (Optional): Enable the Quiz Timer

You can set a time limit for your quiz.

How to set a time limit for your quiz

  1. Mark the box to End quiz after, then enter the number of minutes you want to allow for the quiz.
  2. Use the Start timer drop-down to choose when the timer should start counting down.
    • With first question starts when the learner arrives at the first question slide.
    • With first slide starts as soon as the learner launches the course.
  3. Use the Timer format drop-down to choose how the timer should display.

Step 5: Choose Result Slide Features

Finally, choose the features you want to display on your result slide.

If the Result Slide Properties window is still open, click OK to close it, then go to the Result Tools—Design tab on the ribbon, choose from the following features, and click the slide where you want them to appear.

You can add these features to the base layer of the result slide or to the success/failure layers. For example, you might add a review button to the base layer so learners can review the quiz whether they pass or fail. Then you might add a print button to the success layer so learners who pass can print their results, and you might add a retry button to the failure layer so they can retake the quiz if they fail.

If you’re using a Content Library result slide template, some of the following features may have already been added for you, but you can modify them to suit your needs.

User Score

This adds a placeholder to your slide that displays the percentage the learner achieved and the number of points earned. Format the text box any way you like.

Passing Score

This adds a placeholder that displays the percentage and number of points required to pass. Format the text box any way you like.

Review Button

This adds a Review Quiz button to your result slide, which lets learners go back and review the answers they submitted (but they can't change their answers).

To give learners visual feedback on their performance, double-click the Review results trigger in the Triggers panel, mark the box to Show correct/incorrect responses when reviewing, and click OK.

Print Button

This adds a Print Results button to your result slide, which lets learners print out a summary of their results.

To include the learner's name on the printed report, double-click the Print results trigger in the Triggers panel, mark the box to Prompt the user for their name before printing, and click OK.

Retry Button

This adds a Retry Quiz button to your result slide, which gives learners an unlimited number of attempts to retake the quiz. (To limit the number of quiz attempts, see this user guide.)

 

Tip: You can adjust the passing score and timer settings on the ribbon or in the the Result Slide Properties window as described above.

Step 6: Formatting Result Slide Buttons

You can format buttons on your result slide to match the rest of your course design. Just select a button, go to the Button Tools—Format tab on the ribbon, and make your selections.

You can add icons, change the button style, adjust the colors, and add effects. To learn more about working with buttons in Storyline, see this user guide.

Can I Edit My Result Slide Later?
