When an assessment module has been completed a results box will display. You may wish to use this box to thank the reader for completing the module, or if you are collecting a score, you may prefer to set up different results boxes to display based on the reader's score. This is done by adding more than one result.

A breakdown of this area is provided below:

  1. Title
    Give the result a concise and informative name, for example, 'Pass'.

  2. From/To Score
    From - The minimum score that must be achieved to see this result.
    To - The maximum score that can be achieved to see this result.

  3. Passed
    Select from Passed, Failed or Neutral. This is purely semantic information to enhance reporting.

  4. Award Badge
    Associate a badge or certificate with a quiz result. The badge is awarded if the reader meets the min-max score.

  5. Produce Certificate Content
    Add content here if a certificate can be awarded to the reader and they have placeholders to complete (for example - their 'department'). This uses the same editor as the More Information pop-up module. See this article to learn more about Certificates.

  6. Result Content
    Enter the content that you would like your reader to see if they achieve the result - for example, 'Congratulations, you have passed!'. This uses the same editor as the More Information pop-up module. Assessment modules use special text strings called tokens to display dynamic content. For example, placing [SCORE] in a result box will replace this string with the score achieved. Read this article to learn more about tokens.

  7. Select to delete a result.

  8. Select to add another result.

  9. Save/Cancel your changes.

Full instructions for adding results can be found here.
