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:
Give the result a concise and informative name, for example, 'Pass'.
- 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.
Select from Passed, Failed or Neutral. This is purely semantic information to enhance reporting.
- Award Badge
Associate a badge or certificate with a quiz result. The badge is awarded if the reader meets the min-max score.
- 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.
- 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.
- Select to delete a result.
- Select to add another result.
- Save/Cancel your changes.
Full instructions for adding results can be found here.
