My Partial scoring is not working in captivate 8. When I assign points to each answer, it automatically converts it back to 0 points.
The question is
The business service is generic and similar to many organisations in the industry.
b) Somewhat True
I want to assign3 points for true, 2 for Somewhat True and 1 point for False.
I am going to advanced options and trying to assign individual score. but it is not working.
Maybe I am wrong, but I suspect you misunderstand meaning of partial
scoring. It is not meant for MCQ with 1 correct answer, but for multiple
correct answers. If you mark all answers as correct - total score would be
You want a scored survey?
Thank you for the response.
I know partial scoring is not for one correct answer. In my query, there is no right or wrong answer, but scoring is given to help them chose right model for solution at the end the quiz. Hence a series of questions are asked and scores are assigned to choices. Hence I selected partial score option which seems to be not working. Even after assigning scores to choices/answers it reverts back either to zero or it gives same score to all the choices.
I want to assign 3 points for True, 2 point for Somewhat True and 1 point for False. But it is not taking different scored for different choices. I need help here.
That is why I was asking if you needed a scored survey. Partial scoring
will not solve your problem. I have a blog post about using MCQ for graded
survey, but cannot post a link since I'm answering by phone, bad WiFi.
The questions do not have multiple correct answers. The user is supposed to choose one answer and based on the choice score of 3,2,1 is assigned. So its not multiple correct answers.
Sorry but you cannot use partial scoring in that case. I tried to explain,
but you do not understand my explanation. Did you search for the blog post
about graded survey on http://blog.lilybiri.com
I have taken this up with Adobe support and they said they will get back to me. I guess its design fault. My multiple correct answers is not scoring to total score now. Its given zero as the score in spite of choosing answers, Is there anything wrong I have done.
Oh no! This is not design fault, wonder why Help is telling that. I have
been a professor for a long time, and what you want is not partial scoring
but alternative scoring which is not available out of the box with
Captivate. It can be done only with workarounds: JS, my proposition in the
article I mentioned, and could propose some more.
But OK, if you do not believe me, that is your right. I just wanted to help
and will now leave you alone
Sorry Lilybiri. My intentions are not that. Since it seemed to work once and didnt work next time, i took it to Adobe help. They have registered my complaint and taken it to Product team. I am not sure if they can help me. But please do tell me how to configure alternative scorning so that I can move ahead in this project.
I tried reading your blogs last night and look for it. But could not get one. Can please let me know how to get this resolved?
Many thanks for all your replies so far.
Really 'Since it seemed to work once'? It seems impossible to me, sorry. If you assign two partial scores to two answers, the total score for that question will always be the sum of those two partial scores, no way to circumvent it.
Did you read: Graded Survey? - Captivate blog
Hi, I am fairly new to Captivate. Saw some you tube videos on partial scoring and thought it might work. I did read your blog, but it seemed bit complicated.
All I need is to assign different scores for different choices. True = 3 points, Somewhat True = 2 points and False =1 point.
Can you kindly let me know the steps to achieve this?
Sorry, but the most detailed explanation of the easiest way is in the blog post I mentioned in my previous answer. You did see its length, do you want me to post a copy of it here? Since you are 'faily new' to Captivate, shouldn't you first try to understand the basics of question slides/score slides before trying to do something what they are not meant to be used for? As I repeated already, partial scoring has a totally different meaning even in normal education assessments on paper. You are looking for a survey, not for a normal quiz slide. But survey slides cannot be scored by design in Captivate. That was the reason for my blog post, a workaround to get scores for a survey slide that can be used to decide about something.
I read your blog and most of it was way too complicated. I created a variable V_Score and added conditional action. But I don't know now, how to add them to get total in the last slide.
You need to use the Expression command, if you use v_score for the total score, which is not clear to me from your explanation.
If v_score is the result only for one slide, you'll need another variable v_total. And in the same advanced action you'll need the command:
Expression v_total = v_total + v_score
to calculate the total score. The system variable cpQuizInfoPointsscored that is used in the Score slide you posted is read only, it cannot be manipulated.
I asked this before: what do you want to do with this score? Do you have to transmit it to a LMS?
Thank you. I will try this.
The assessment is not going to be used any further and hence need not be transmitted or saved in LMS. The assessment is more to guide people to understand and decide on Cloud deployment model.
Also should we put different conditions in different tabs of the advanced actions...True condition, Somewhat True condition and False condition ?
I try to be very patient, but you really need to learn about advanced/shared actions before trying to create them. Those 'tabs' are called 'decisions'. Each decision is a condition that can have two branches: either the condition results in Yes (THEN branch) or in No (ELSE branch). Decisions are always evaluated, starting with the first one and proceeding in sequence to the right. You have to be very careful to avoid that a 'later' (more to the right) decision is not overwriting something you specified in an 'earlier' decision.
Have a look at this very old article, that has a video tutorial where I show different decisions: Video tutorial: Advanced conditional action for customized feedback
And this video shows you my first presentation about Advanced actions, also pretty old:
i have mcq. three answers, only one can be selected with one radio button with dot inside
three answers, each with their different points
i am puzzled what is Scored Survey, and, Graded Survey
I think Partial Scoring is out
maybe i have to design from scratch from blank slide? thank you gurus
What is the link with the original question in this thread please?
Partial scoring has only sense for a MCQ question with multiple correct answers.
A Survey is never Graded.
