I have a module with 3 stages of quizzes. 1. Easy round; 2. Average round; 3. Difficult round. I want to make the students take the exam starting from easy round to difficult round. if the student failed the easy round he should go back at the start of the module to review the module again and retake the easy round. If he passed the easy round this time, then that's the time he could take the average round. Now, if the failed the average round, he would go back at the start of the module and review the module again skip the easy round (because he passed the easy round already) retake the average round again. If he passed the average round this time, then that's the time, he could take the difficult round. Could you help me how to implement this in ADVANCED ACTIONS?? One more thing, If the student failed the easy round, the score that he got from that round will be wiped out. until he passed the easy round that's the time the score will be generated, same thing in average round and difficult round. Because our main goal for the students is about "mastery of the subject matter." The student couldn't go to another level if he didn't pass the current level.
You are asking a lot... What is your level of skills with advanced actions? Which version of Captivate do you use? That is very important, CP6 could at least make it easier for the first part, because the Pretest feature (new) could be used for the 'easy round'. But then the issue is that each CP-file can have only one quiz. The easiest way would be to have the quizzes in separate CP-files, that you call from the main project. You'll perhaps need the Save&Load Data widget from cpguru (Michael Lund) if you want to see results in the main project.
Oh yes, could be done in one file with advanced actions, but since you only want to report (or do you not have to report?) the final result of the difficult round, this would implement that at least one quiz should be created with custom question slides (in CP6 one would be OK, in previous versions you'll have to create two quizzes with custom questions). So that is another question: do you have to report to a LMS?
Thank you for your reply, I would say my level of skills in captivate is above average I think, I have done this already. By the way I've been practicing adobe captivate 5 for almost 6 months now. Would you guide me if I'm wrong because what I did in my advanced actions about my module? What I did was when the student failed the EASY ROUND for example, in the next slide there will appear "Ooops you seem to need another round of review!" below that feedback message will appear a button "Try Again!" and the student will be brought back to the beginning of the module for review. After reviewing, before he Click a button on the slide of "TAKE THE CHALLENGE!" which has buttons of EASY ROUND, AVERAGE ROUND, AND DIFFICULT ROUND, in that same slide, I executed advanced actions. I made a conditional action of Retake action that will bring the student to EASY ROUND if the student fails the EASY ROUND, AVERAGE ROUND, AND DIFFICULT ROUND... and I assigned the
variables (EASYSCORE, AVERAGESCORE, AND DIFFICULTSCORE) with 0. If the student passed the student will be brought to another level, and from numbers 1 to 10 of the EASY ROUND, on success I chose increment by 1. Another thing, in the RETAKE ACTION of the TAKE THE CHALLENGE slide, there's a conditional action: IF the variable EASYSCORE is lesser or equal to 7 (FAILED), the ACTION is he will jump to EASY ROUND, if the student passed (greater or equal to 8), then CONTINUE. same thing in AVERAGE ROUND. IF AVERAGESCORE is lesser or equal to 7 (FAILED), the ACTION is he will jump to AVERAGE ROUND, if the student passed (greater or equal to 8), then CONTINUE. I will not report this to LMS. Because this interactive module which is burned on a cd is only a supplement for the students when they bought a textbook in the coming school year. I'm a FILIPINO and I think adobe captivate is very exciting!
Please, could you answer my questions? I did ask about advanced actions skills, the version you are using (is it 5, did you apply all patches?), do you have to report to a LMS? From your description I understand that all questions are scored equally, since you increment the score with 1 instead of using Quizzing system variables to calculate the score.
Are those regular question slides or custom question slides that you built with standard objects? You have to stay all the time within the Quiz scope, and the easiest way to do that is to make sure that scope starts from the first slide by inserting a scored object on that slide. Please read my blog posts where I explained the functionalities of default question slides:
The EASY ROUND is a matching type quiz, The AVERAGE ROUND is a hotspot type of quiz, and the DIFFICULT ROUND Is also a hotspot type of quiz. I haven't done anything different about my quizzes, because I know in the long run it will back fire to me. I'm an artist I know this, I just create my own backgrounds, designed my owned buttons, animations, create my own illustrations you know... maybe i think I should create my own slide for the total score for every module.
