Hey guys, Thanks for reading!
Does anyone know if it is possible to do multiple tests with multiple results in captivate 6? or if it is possible to have a pre-test with a quiz, and have separate results for each?
I've been having a play with captivate 6 and when I put a quiz in, it overrides the results slide for my pre-test.
Looking at the results slide master properties I can choose to have results for one of my quizzes but not both (even on separate slides):
It wont even let me insert another slide based on the other result.
I would like to know if multiple quizzes with multiple results is possible in Captivate 6?, or if I am simply doing something wrong?
Adobe Captivate has a new feature of adding pre-test quiz.
Please check the tutorial from Dr. Pooja Jaisingh on the same : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39GwWqjDz4Q&feature=share
If you need any help on this, please let me know.
Thank you for your reply!
I have had a look at that youtube tutorial and it it doesn’t look like I can have the pre-test results and the main quiz results displayed separately. Can you please confim this is the case?
HI George (?)
The score slide that is inserted at the end will only display the score and other information about the graded quiz, not about the pretest.
I should do more exploring, but until now if I want to show/see the score/percentage acquired in the pretest, I construct a 'score' slide myself. There are new system quizzing variables cpQuizInfoPretestPointsscored and cpQuizInfoPretestScorePercentage. Those can be used to display the result. There is however, AFAIK no system variable that offers you the number of Pretest questions (I calculate them using a user variable).
Do not know if this will help you,
Am I right in assuming that cpQuizInfoPretestPointsscored is a variable that contains the total score for the pretest? If so, is it possible to use the variable cpQuizInfoPretestPointsscored, and have it fed back to the LMS, alongside the graded quiz?
Could you also advise how you construct your own score slide using these variables? I'm really interested in knowing how to do this?
I'm still busy exploring every changed feature for Quiz, so do not expect a complete answer yet. Will certainly blog about it.
Yes, those system variables do store the result for the pretest, and are used for the Pretest action (that is where I want to do more exploration).
I'm not sure those variables are passed automatically to the LMS, suppose not.. but have to check.
Some other variables are populated as well by pretest questions, one of them is cpInfoAnswerChoice, can be interesting as well. But again, give me some more time. Have been overwhelmed by work these last weeks.
Per the SCORM standard, each lesson can only have one overall 'score'.
You could possibly theoretically send the results of the Pretest as 'interaction data' to the LMS for later reporting, but I don't think CP supports that (I too have more testing to do with CP6).
But as to the final score, even if the Pretest option in CP6 allows it so be sent back to the LMS, it would later be overwritten by the final quiz score as there's only one 'spot' per lesson in the LMS to store a lesson score...
Thanks for that Erik - I don't know enough about scorm yet and that was interesting to know. I have seen an option in captivate for interaction data, I have it ticked but not sure what it does yet. Will post back if I manage to make any progress with it.
I've still not tested the pre-test feature in CP6 myself, so I'm not sure how it's tracked. Regardless, SCORM only allows one 'score' so even if the pre-test does track as 'the score' to the LMS, anything subsequent that also records as 'the score' is going to overwrite it.
Now if Captivate is wise enough to track a pre-test to, say, interaction data - then you may be able to report on the lesson's interaction data to see the pre-test score, then compare to the post-test ('the score')...but no matter the tool, there's till only one cmi.score value possible per SCO.
