Make Gripping Assessments Using Articulate Storyline – Learn How

Using Formative Assessments as a Final Test – Lectora to the Rescue

Articulate Storyline has made e-learning courses very engaging. The learner can feel engaged with the course when there are interactivities and assessments. In order to engage learners and keep them interested in the course, we can add gripping assessments.

One of our clients asked us for an interesting requirement: The client did not want a default dropdown assessment. They wanted only a customized drop-down assessment. Articulate Storyline has the capability to develop such types of assessments.

Let us see how we can meet this requirement using Articulate Storyline.

Step 1: Insert two Rectangle boxes and design as shown in the screenshot below.

Step 1

Change the Rectangle 2 name as Dropdown arrow 1.

Now create an option same as option 2 as shown in the screenshot below.

Step 1

Step 2: Give states for Rectangle 1; give in states the number of options you want to have.

Step 2

In the above screenshot, two states 1 and 2 with options are created and then in the normal state, place text as “Select”.

Give as is for Option 2 also.

Step 3: Create Slide layers for the same options as we created in rectangle 1 states in the above step.

Step 3

Create another Slide layer for Option 2.

Step 4: Give a trigger for Dropdown arrow 1; that is, show layer option 1 when the user clicks dropdown arrow 1.

Step 4

Give the same trigger for Dropdown arrow 2.

Step 5: Then go to the slide layer and give two triggers for option 2 and option 1; that is, change the state of rectangle 1 to state 1 user clicks option 2.

Step 5

Step 5

Give two triggers for option 1, that is, change the state of rectangle 1 to state 2 user clicks option 1.

Step 5

Step 5

Give same triggers for another slide layer option.

Step 6: Create the Correct and Incorrect layer for feedback.

Step 7: Insert the Submit button on the base layer as shown in the screenshot below.

Step 7

Step 8: Give two Triggers for the Submit button as shown in the screenshots below.

Trigger 1 for Correct answer

Step 8

In the above trigger, we have to give conditions for the correct option states.

Trigger 2 for Incorrect answer

Step 8

Step 9: Preview the course and check the output.

Step 9

In this way, we have to create a customized dropdown assessment using Articulate Storyline.
