I am an intereting issue. I have a question pool of about 450 questions and I have a project that has a title slide, a summary slide, and a slide that asks the user to input the number of questions they want. What I want to do is take the variable that is storing the user input and use it to add that many Random Quesstion slides to the running project. 

Is this possible? Do I use JavaScript?

 

Thanks,

Chuck Nailen

AFAIK there is no way to show/hide slides after having opened the project. On opening the random slides are inserted as a subset from the question pool, which means the number of random slides has to be known when opening the course. I very much doubt this can be done with JS.

Maybe you could consider having a maximum number of random slides, and based on the chosen number of slides, skip the not to be used slides. If you turn on Branch aware only the visited quiz slides will be taken into account for the quizzing system variables.

OK, I have turned on Branch Aware. Here is my setup. The first slide the user sees is a slide that asks them the number of questions they want. How do I set up branch aware so that it only counts those number of questsions in the quiz total? Right now I have 4 random slides, and I am picking 2. It does only give me 2 questions, but the results slide shows the results based on all 4 random questions. So, as an example, each question has 1 point. If I answer both questions correctly, the results page shows I got a 50% and my maximum score and total questions are both 4, instead of 2. Using Branch Aware, how do I fix this?

I suspect you have visited all quiz slides. You have to jump the slides you don't want to be included, did you achieve that? Branch aware doesn't need more. Have a look at this blog:

Yes, I do jump the random questions I do not need, but at the end, the scoring includes ALL of the questions for calculating the grade and showing how many total questions there were. I use an advance action to check the value of a user variable that holds the number of questions, and if I have gotten all the questions I want, I jump to the final slide, which is the review slide.

That is not a normal ehavior, as you can see in the blog post. The quizzing system variables should be taking ito account only the visited quiz slides.  Although, since you are using random quiz slide, maybe that is the origin. To be able to double-check I need the exact version number as you can read under Help, About Captivate. 

 

It is possible to create a custom score slide, but you need to have the correct score and maximum score if they have to be transferred to a LMS.
