In general, multiple-response questions have more than one answer. If a learner selects only one correct option, the feedback is shown as “incorrect”. If the learners select all the right options, it shows the feedback as “correct”.
Now, the requirement is that if the learner selects only a few of the correct options, a pop up should appear showing the number of other correct options, which need to be selected.
These are the following steps you need to follow to satisfy the requirement.
Step1: Create a multiple-response question with more than one option as its answer.
In the above screen shot, the selected options are correct answers. In a multiple response question, the states for the buttons – Normal, Hover, Down, Disabled and Selected are automatically created.
Step2: Create combinations of 3 buttons from the 4 buttons mentioned above because 3 options are correct answer for this question. To know how many combinations need to be formed calculate using the formula aCb where a is the number of options and b is the number of correct options. So, the number of options in this case is 4C3=4. Thus 4 combinations are to be formed.
Combination 1: Button 1, Button 2, Button 3
Combination 2: Button 1, Button 2, Button 4
Combination 3: Button 1, Button 3, Button 4
Combination 4: Button 2, Button 3, Button 4
Step3: Create a single variable for each combination – Variable 1, Variable 2, Variable 3 and Variable 4.
Adjust Variable 1 as true if the 1st combination is selected.
Adjust Variable 1 as false if the 1st combination is not selected.
Adjust Variable 1 as true if the 2nd combination is selected.
Adjust Variable 1 as false if the 2nd combination is not selected.
This process is to be repeated for combination 3 and combination 4 also.
Step4: Create a hint layer with the content “Three options are correct for this question“.
Give trigger as “If the learner clicks ok, hide the hint layer”.
Step5: Give the trigger for submit button as “Submit the interaction if the user clicks the submit button on the condition any one of the above variables is true”.
Give another trigger for show hint layer as “Show layer if the user clicks the submit button on the condition all the above variables are false”.
Then publish the course and see the output. It hints the learner if he selects only a few of the correct options.
In this way, you can hint the learner to select the correct number of options for multiple-response in Articulate Storyline. Please do share your views.
