Quiz attempts, Variables and Success (according to the LMS)
I need the expertise of this group to solve an issue my colleagues and I have been wrestling with. Here's the scenario:
- All assessment questions are at the end of this 2 hour course.
- I give the learner 3 tries to get a passing score and use a variable within Storyline to count the attempts. (In SABA (our LMS) they have unlimited attempts.) Here's a sample of the variable on the Results sli
- Each time they click “Retry Quiz” it adds one to the number of attempts. When the number is greater than 2, I change the state of the Retry Quiz button to read “Finished” and when clicked this time, directs them to a scene that tells them what to do next.
When publishing the course for the LMS, I use that one and only Results slide to pass the score and have the LMS Reporting status set to “Completed/Incomplete” (our typical setting for courses in SABA
That works like a charm, BUT….. and here’s the part that has us baffled. If the student starts and stops the course more than twice, they get marked as “unsuccessful” with a score of 0 even if they haven’t ever reached the Results slide. This removes the course from their In-Progress Learning Activities (causing some panic and a deluge of email) It appears that somehow, that CountQuizRetries variable is being used, even though the Retry Button is never clicked.
As a work around, I’ve changed the number of quiz retries allowed to 5 (hoping that they won't start and stop the course more than 5 times) but any advice on how to truly correct the issue within the content would be greatly appreciated.
