Hi, we create eLearning courses with quiz-slides in the Captivate.
Usually we use different types of questions on different slides.
1) Now we need to organize 5 quiz-questions (true/false) on the same slide.
How can we use different groups of radio-buttons for every question?
2) If we use for this task a partial score quiz with check-boxes for different questions
and set negative points for wrong answers, the Captivate shows a result with negative percents
in case of all wrong answers. It looks like a bug from the mathematic side.
Can we fix some internal variable to set it to zero in case it is less then zero?
Something like that: if (cpPercent < 0) cpPercent = 0;
If you need multiple T/F questions on one slide, you'll need to create a custom question slide using standard objects and advanced/shared actions with variables.
If you report to a LMS with SCORM 1.2, the end result will always be 0 if the score from the complete quiz is negative.
BTW the system variable for percentage is cpInfoPercentage.
Hi, Lilybiri, the customer doesn't accept a custom solution. They would like to use standard possibilities only. By the way I use the advanced action "Assign" to set cp-variables. So, I need to play with cpInfoPercentage. Thank you!
You can use Assign only for user variables and for the system variables of the category 'Movie Control'. All other systm variables are ead only. Believe me.... Here is a blog about quizzing system variables:
I tested cpInfoPercentage, js-code does not fix it:
So, the temporary solution is to take out the standard cpInfoPercentage from a quiz result page
and put a user defined text with the fixed percentage value there instead.
But let's see how cpInfoPercentage = -100 influences to the customer's LMS Workday.
When I talked about JS, it is not that simple. You should ask a JS expert, it will not work just by that simple assign action which you showed.
I am not a JS expert, but use the CpExtra widget by InfoSemantics if I need to edit quizzing system variables.
Are you using SCORM 2004? U told that in SCORM 1.2 negative score is not allowed, and it will automatically be set to 0.
Thank you very much, Lilybiri!
Yes, we use SCORM 1.2. I try to understand Captivate-JS as deep as possible. Let's see, maybe I'll find the solution to reset the quiz using JS. At the moment we don't yet use widjets.
If I understand correctly the client is looking for something like this...
Select either true or false for the following statements.
The sky is blue. (T) (F)
The ocean is large. (T) (F)
Jupiter is the smallest planet. (T) (F)
Instead why not suggest slightly changing the question...
Please select all the following statements that are true.
[ ] The sky is blue.
[ ] The ocean is large.
[ ] Jupiter is the smallest planet.
This way you can simply use a multiple choice question with multiple answers. No coding required.
some questions are like real T/F-types, and your solution may assist.
There are also other questions with T/F-radio-buttons with different content, for example
"The function is switched on/off with...(T)=the blue button, (F)=with the green button."
I will think, maybe there is a reason to say something like
"The function is switched on/off with the blue button [x]".
Thank you very much for the idea!
I also have viewed your solution "Several Multiple Choice Questions on 1 Slide". It's very nice, but the same situation, 0% or 100%. Using the partial score is under the question now. I also found some solutions using JS to customize quiz slides and stopped at the stage of percentage correction. So deep digging into the internal quiz structure is an interesting task for the future.
