Custom quiz scoring in Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate

Custom quiz scoring in Adobe Captivate. Adobe Captivate 9 has a selection of built-in quiz processes that are designed to cover the majority of scenarios. Adobe can only anticipate a limited range of cases to be modeled in the Captivate user interface as, after a point the UI becomes unworkable. Here, we will show how to override the internal scoring process. Scores are reported to the LMS through Captivate, no special communication is needed.

Adobe Captivate: Partial Question Slide Scores

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      One of the problems with a multiple choice question you've added to a Captivate quiz is the all or nothing aspect of the question. Say hello to the Partial Score feature available in Adobe Captivate 6 and 7.  From the  General  group of the  Quiz Properties  panel, I set the number of Answers to  4.     The final step in allowing for partial scores is the trickiest.

Adobe Captivate 6: Goodbye Quiz Playbar

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

By Lori Smith  I love Adobe Captivate's variables and advanced actions. I'm guessing that more than a few fellow Captivate developers have used this feature over the years because Captivate 6 has added a brand new quiz feature allowing the playbar to be hidden during a quiz. Choose  Quiz Preferences > Settings  and select  Hide Playbar In Quiz.  The object just needs to be included in the quiz.

Quiz attempts

Adobe Captivate

Hi Everybody, I’m working on an eLearning that will have a quiz at the end. If the user doesn’t score enough points, it should be able to start the quiz again and after that they have another attempt. So you have the attempts immediately on the slide but I want them to run the quiz completely and than have the option to do the quiz again. Thanks in advance (i’m running the latest version of Captivate).

Super-Easy Dynamic Successive ‘Quiz Failure Attempts’

Adobe Captivate

This blog is in response to a few comments and questions I’ve seen about successive failure attempts such as “if a learner gets a question wrong on the third time I want the program to…” Now Captivate already has a built in quiz function that allows you to show up to three successive ‘failure messages’ This is great if all you need it to show a message, but what if you want something more.

Custom Quiz review trouble

Adobe Captivate

I’m creating a quiz with no prebuilt question slides or result slide, but fully costum ones. Unfortunately this costum review process is obviously not viewed as such by captivate, as it is counting it as another quiz attempt. Furthermore, when first viewing the result slide you could also chose to retake the quiz right away, without reviewing. If I do so, the scores are not updated.

Adobe Captivate: Submit All

Adobe Captivate: Pretest Actions

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

We recently introduced you to Captivate's Pretest feature. Here's the scenario: your client or boss wants to ensure that all the learners know the material by passing a quiz. The boss doesn't care if the learner spends the time watching the individual slides that make up the lesson, only that learners are given a fair opportunity to pass the quiz. Instead, you will allow the learner to jump straight to the final quiz. by Lori Smith.

Quiz Preferences: Failure Action- Exit vs Continue

Adobe Captivate

For an assessment that uses click boxes to test learners’ knowledge of navigation, we set the Passing score action to be Exit. For the Failing score action, we used the Show Retake Button option, as well as an Exit action which allows the learner to leave the quiz and review the course material before taking the quiz again.

Branch Aware is new in Captivate 6. According to Adobe: "Use Branch Aware to calculate the final score based only on the questions in the branch that users have viewed.

If a user reaches the module with three questions and 10 points each, the total score is considered as 30 points.     Looking to learn Captivate quickly?
