Custom quiz scoring in Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate

Custom quiz scoring in Adobe Captivate. Incorporating quizzes is always a bit of a struggle, not only in developing good quiz concepts, but in developing user feedback, structuring the user journey through the course given the results, scoring strategies, and ensuring that any reporting functions to the LMS capture the right information and can be easily searched and interpreted. Here, we will show how to override the internal scoring process.

Learning Game Design Series, Part 6: Rewards and Scoring

Continuing with game elements, this post focuses on rewards and scoring. Rewards can be anything players earn via game play. The new wave in learning games—and in gamification of learning—is to give players achievements for accomplishing certain tasks or hitting certain milestones. Let your reward be a form of feedback to the player. Only allow the player to earn points (or resources) if they perform to a certain standard, which is then a form of feedback.

Saba Player Templates and Best Practices

Learning Developments

Use a player template in saba that will serve as the table of contents for the course. It seems there would be a toggle in Saba for this but I don’t see it as an option in my player template. Regardless, it seems to work well for me and the result is easy and consistent usability with minimal development effort since Saba is handling the table of contents and consolidating the scoring. The question is “what is the best way to create a video based training course in Saba?”

Branch and Bottleneck Scenario Structure

The branch-and-bottleneck structure is most often used to reflect the growth of the player-character: it allows the player to construct a somewhat-distinctive story and/or personality, while still allowing for a manageable plot. You might track an overall score or adjust another part of the consequences or intrinsic feedback based on earlier choices. In the example above, players make 3 total decisions, but it’s already 40 screens (1+3+9+27).

Five Lessons From Learning Game Development

Upside Learning

Be absolutely certain about the game objective; what must the player do to win? – If a player chooses not to do anything, the game environment must still change, and adapt to the ‘non-play’. Ideally, there must some penalization of the player for not making moves, after all that’s what the game-play is about. Be sure of how you score players – decide on what variables the score will depend, what clearly defines a winning score and how the system will compute it.

5 Ways to Use Gamification in E-Learning


When you think about it, grades are similar to leveling up in a course, or achieving a high score on a leaderboard. Gamification, on the other hand, says the complete opposite: your scores are temporary. You can’t earn a top score and rest on your laurels, nor do you have to accept a bad score as a black mark on your educational career. We’re all familiar with the allure of a new high score.

Kapp Notes

The simplist of rewards, the game just tells the game player he or she did a good job. This is a common method of rewarding a player for an accomplishment. The player does something she was supposed to do and is provided with points for the effort. People like to express themselves, often a game will reward a player with the chance to customize his avatar or to customize a unique space within the game. It also deeply taps into a players need for autonomy.

Most players need help figuring out how to play – but typically won’t opt for it if given a choice. However, when you design a tutorial level of play, if players get a choice, they will often OPT OUT of completing it…because they don’t want to take the time.

Goal Orientation in Gamification

Kapp Notes

A player’s goal orientation must be considered when designing achievements, as it will influence how they experience gamification and games through goals they set for themselves. Players who favor a performance orientation are concerned with other people’s assessment of their competence. Players who have a mastery orientation are concerned more with improving their proficiency. Try to keep new players, who are still learning how to play, in a mastery orientation.

If I incorporate all the course learning objectives into a game setting and keep score – it qualifies as game based learning doesn’t it? Research suggests that if learners are able to score and win the game without learning, they are more likely to do so. In order for a game to be educational, it is imperative that the learners be required to learn in order to score and win the game. The idea is to make the learner/player continue playing the game.
