Editing Question Weightings and Non scored questions

Is it possible to edit the weighting of scored questions and retain SCORM 2004 data?

I am publishing a long video as SCORM 2004 zip file.

There is number of poll questions thought the video to ensure the learner is paying attention. The learner does not have to get these questions correct but only respond.

At the end of the video there is final question to mark the content as completed: 

Question: Mark me as completed?
Answer: Yes (Correct). 

The score pass score is 80%. This is the only scored questions so getting this correct will mark the learner as completed.

Now I know what your thinking!

We could reduce the pass "Quiz success" settings. Marking the lowest to [100% divided by the Number of Questions].

This way getting one question correct (ie. would mean the quiz is pass and the course therefore completed.

But would this happen when they answer the first question?

Any advice would be welcome!

Hi there

Camtasia is pretty limited when it comes to configuring any kind of weighting. There simply aren't any options.

If you are serious about these kinds of things, I might suggest that you consider adding Adobe Captivate to handle the quizzing bits. Use Camtasia for the recording part because that's where it totally rocks, then use Captivate for the quizzing part. 

Here are a few of the things Captivate can do with quizzing.

Weight the questions as you want.
Present questions in a randomized order.
Mix up the answers within questions.
Allow partial scoring for multiple choice questions.
Allow multiple attempts at questions with up to three levels of feedback.
Control the formatting of the questions so you can use your own colors and theming.

Cheers... Rick :)

Yep thanks Rick,

I am aware of Captivate and Storyline as options but I do like the streamline output of Camtasia. So this is really my prefered option!

It just seems a shame that Camtasia allows your create quiz questions but nothing more than that!

Guess as you said publish the video and MP4 and then embed in another tool.

Still I wanted the questions to pause and appear during the video. Getting this set up will required splitting the video using markers or some minor edits in Captivate!
