"I have developed an MCQ captivate project that presents the emergency nurse with randomised scenarios of patients that they have to assign the correct level of urgency. The levels of urgency are 1 through to 5, were 1 is the most urgent and 5 the least. Captivate produces an accuracy %, but I would also like the percentage of over or under assignment of urgency category."
The user provided me with a small example with 3 MCQ slides and allowed me to publish this file here ... on the condition that I offered a solution of course.
Play this SWF to see the result. On the score slide the number of incorrect answers that were too high or too low. It is not a percentage - for 3 slides it is a bit ridiculous - but calculating the percentage as well is possible of course.
Variables - actions & triggers
No one will doubt that at least one counter is needed, which will be incremented with each incorrect answer. Although I could achieve it with one counter, found it easier to create two:
v_low will store the number of incorrect answers that were under assignment of urgency category
v_high will store the number of incorrect answers that were under assignment of urgency category
one that will be executed after a correct answer; in this case this can be left at Continue or eventually Go to Next Slide
one that will be done after last attempt (on question level) for a wrong answer, which we will have to turn into an advanced conditional action
either the answer was too high, then the v_high counter has to be incremented, will be the THEN part
or it was too low and the v_low counter increments, the ELSE part
IF cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice is greater than B (B is the correct answer)THEN Expression v_high = v_high + 1ELSE Expression v_low = v_low + 1
IF cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice is greater than v_correctTHEN Expression v_high = v_high + 1ELSE Expression v_low = v_low + 1
More tips to save timeI would recommend creating a template with one question slide and the score slide. The question slide can have a regular question instead of a placeholder. Attach both the assignment action (on Enter) and the advanced action (After last attempt) to this question slide.
When using this template: duplicate the question slide as many times as needed. They will all have the same Text Captions, that you can export, edit and import again to change the question texts. In Captivate indicate the correct answer, and at the same time assign the correct answer indicator in the Properties panel for the slide, On Enter.
