I’m facing difficulties in the area of custom quizzing. I want to ask the learner mc questions, where the answer options are images (or image-filled shapes). The possible solutions I’ve found so far do work, but are not satisfying in specific ways. Thankful for helpful ideas and input.
I’m facing difficulties in the area of custom quizzing.
First things first, the reason I’m not using the inbuilt quizzing slides is, that I want to ask the learner mc questions, where the answer options are images (or image-filled shapes for that matter). So my goal is to have a couple of questions, normal mc, mc with image answer options, true/false questions. Ideally, I would be able to use some (costumized but) inbuilt question slides plus fully costum ones.
So I created a slide with 4 of said image answer-options. Let’s say, the answer is correctly answered when 3 of the 4 answer options are selected. In order to use this slide with standard quiz reporting, as far as I see it, I would have to put a button on the slide that by clicking/”on success” checks via advanced actions if the answer is correct. Based on the outcome I would then have to display a further button. So one of two buttons would be shown, either one for the correct answer or a different one for incorrect answer. The button that is shown based on a correct answer would by clicking/”on success” take the learner to the next slide and is including in the quiz. The button for when the answer was not correct would take the learner to the next slide an not be included in the quiz.
So far so good, but there are two problems in this for me:
Firstly, it bothers me, that I need the learner to click on two buttons – one to check for correctness and one to continue/and to be included in the quiz. I do not want to display a “Correct”, “Incomplete” or other kind of message, so really from the viewpoint of the learner, it would be clicking a button and then clicking another button.
Secondly, to be able to add different points based on the “extent of correctness” (e. g. 2 points if any one of four answer options are correctly selected/not selected, 4 points if any two,…), that would make an unmanagable amount of depending buttons and advanced actions.
So I was thinking of not using any inbuilt quizzing features at all, also not the prebuilt variables. That would make life easier BUT I doubt that the reporting to an LMS would be walk through the park then. Ideally I would be able to directly, manually via advanced actions add points to the cpInfoQuiz… total score variable, o that I can also use inbuilt question slides in the mix. Please, is there a way to do that?
I am also open to other suggestions. What I do not want to read in the answers though is something like “Why don’t you just display a correct/incorrect message to the learner, because pedagogy”. I do not want to display these kinds of messages. For any other helpful thoughts or input I will be very thankful!
