One of the great features of Storyline 360’s form-based quizzing is that it automatically allows the learner to review quiz questions they’ve answered with a direct comparison against the correct responses. This feature is cut and dry with form-based questions…but what if you’re utilizing freeform question slides? In today’s blog, we’re answering the “as-heard-in-training” question: “How can I show the correct answer when reviewing freeform questions?” We often develop question slides using the streamlined form-based approach, but so many of our clients also request the more custom freeform development from
UPDATE! As of October 2019, the Storyline 360 trigger wizard was updated to use the same intuitive language as the triggers panel so it’s consistent and understandable. For 360 users, “Assignment and Not Assignment” have been replaced with “Set and Toggle.” The language is different, but the steps listed below still work.

You can view a simplified version of the course here. You can also download that .story file at this link. What is happening in this example is the “visited” states of the buttons are designed to look like an “in
There’s one moment in particular that brings me extra delight as an instructor during our Storyline workshops. It’s that look of awe from participants when we draw attention to a trigger that works because of the sequential order of the triggers themselves. As you may know, triggers execute all of the action in our Storyline builds. Aside from a few timeline-based events, we see most of our slide actions listed in the Triggers Panel. However, the sequential order of triggers within the panel can also be significant. You may or
NEW! An Articulate-360-exclusive feature is now the most streamlined way to allow learners to pre-check their knowledge. Check it out here. Developers using more vintage versions of Storyline, however, carry on and follow the steps listed below! During Articulate training, we tackle quizzing. The exercises highlight features in Storyline that support the creation of robust assessment activities where the learning doesn’t stop when the quiz starts. One question that is often raised that morning is whether Storyline supports pre-tests. Pre-tests could be used to: Introduce a course or topic and
