What is the best way to create a short answer multiple response question type?

I would like to have a question type that invites the user to type in responses and then check the answers against a pool of correct answers. It would be similar to a multiple response question, but the user types the answers in rather than makes a selection. This would be a better test of knowledge.

For example:

Question: Name four types of car manufacturer

There would then be four input fields that would check against a pool of correct answers e.g.

Audi, BMW, Citroen, Dacia, Kia, Lancia

The user would enter four and be awarded a point for each correct one.

I have looked at the fill-in-the-blank and short answer styles but they are not flexible enough. I am sure it can be done, so would be interested to hear from anyone who has had experience doing this or could suggest the best way to do it!

New Community Member – wanting to say hi!

All.

I don’t mean to take up your time, I just wanted to say hi as a new community member, or at least a new user. I am taking some time to watch some of the videos on demand and checking out some projects that have been made with Captivate 2019. I am learning a lot about some of the new features of the software. I am looking to pull the trigger on purchase of a new tool and I tend to do a lot of research. I am not going to ask what to choose in this post, as I have my thoughts on what the answers might be.

For now, I just wanted to say hi and if you would like to share any words of wisdom on tools, I am happy to hear it. If you have any ideas for me as I work to transition from in-class instructor to online developer and facilitator, I would love to hear them as well.

Thanks

How do you add a results slide to a Captivate assessment if one doesn’t populate automatically?

I’m coming to Captivate from Storyline and do not see where you can insert a results slide for an assessment. In Storyline it is really easy to do this — like two steps.

Where do you do this in Captivate? I created a software simulation with a couple of steps and specified that I wanted to include those slides in a quiz.

However, the results slide did not populate automatically and I do not see where to insert it.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Captivate 2019 11.5.4.613 for Mac Crashes when setting Default caption text setting for simulation recording

I’m going to have to try and get a refund for my recent purchase of Captivate 2019 11.5.4.613 for Mac running on Catalina 10.15.5 because it is completely unstable and I’m unable to capture any software simulations.

Here are the steps I follow:

1. Record New Simulation

2. Settings

3. Recording/Settings/Default

4. Click on Text Captions drop-down to change the format of the object and I get the following bug:

Captivate unexpectedly quit.  Options to “Ignore, Report, Reopen”

Clicking on report reveals the following text:

Crashed Thread: 0 CrBrowserMain Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000020
Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY

Termination Signal: Abort trap: 6
Termination Reason: Namespace SIGNAL, Code 0x6
Terminating Process: Adobe Captivate [1131]

I would prefer to use the Mac version but cannot waste any more time on this issue unless there is a simple fix.

Thanks, Mike (mlawgsu)
