Articulate Storyline 2: Creating Assessments Using the Slider Control

Assessments in e-learning courses test learners on the topic they have been trained on and reinforce knowledge by providing feedback. Articulate Storyline 2 offers wonderful options to create effective e-learning assessments based on different requirements.

In this post, let’s discuss how the slider control can be customized to create an engaging assessment. When the learner moves the slider to the correct position,  the correct popup should be displayed. If it is moved to an incorrect position, the incorrect popup should be displayed.

Here are the steps to meet this requirement.

Step 1: Create a normal slide and insert a slider, question, and options.

Step 6: Add the triggers explained below.

Initially, the slider value is “0”. It will increase by “1” if the slider progresses to the next position (0 to 5). Here, the correct option is at the second position.

Trigger 1: Change the state of the rectangle Correct to Selected, when the slider value becomes “1”.

Trigger 2: Change the state of the rectangle Incorrect to Selected, when the slider value is not  “1”.
