Exploring partial and negative scoring
Video: Exploring partial and negative scoringWhen it comes to scoring your quizzes there are couple of new options here in Captivate 6 you might enjoy. We're going to explore them now as we continue to work with our Volunteer Orientation project. If you've been following along, we're going to select slide 31, and insert a new slide after it. If you've jumped to this lesson, you need to get caught up; go to the Chapter5 folder of those Exercise Files, and open up Volunteer_Orientation_SAMOCA25. Next we'll go up to the Quiz menu, and choose Question Slide right at the top. We're going to insert a new Multiple Choice slide, which allows us to do things called partial scoring, and negative scoring.

Exploring partial and negative scoring
When it comes to scoring your quizzes there are couple of new options here in Captivate 6 you might enjoy. We're going to explore them now as we continue to work with our Volunteer Orientation project. If you've been following along, we're going to select slide 31, and insert a new slide after it. If you've jumped to this lesson, you need to get caught up; go to the Chapter5 folder of those Exercise Files, and open up Volunteer_Orientation_SAMOCA25. Next we'll go up to the Quiz menu, and choose Question Slide right at the top. We're going to insert a new Multiple Choice slide, which allows us to do things called partial scoring, and negative scoring.
With that selected, we're going to insert 1 slide, and click OK. If you don't see the OK button, just move the window up, and click OK. Now, by default, we see an area for our question, and then the default two options. We'll change that momentarily. Right now, we'll double-click inside the Type the question here field, select everything, and type in our new question, which is Select any behaviors deemed appropriate according to the SAMOCA rules of conduct. Now, down below we'll click in the answer area, and we'll go to our Quiz Properties here.
Clicking that tab shows us the default set of Answers is 2. We're going to change that to a 4. You can click, and type 4, and press Enter or Return on your keyboard. We now have four possible answers. So let's type in a couple, starting with A. We'll just double-click there, and then select type the answer here, and type right over that. How about Show up for work on time. We'll go to C, double-click there, and select everything. Now we're going to type over that one. How about Talk on your cell phone during working hours.
We'll add another incorrect one here for B. Just click, and highlight, and we'll type in Smoke inside the building. These are very obvious. And then the last one will be a correct answer, so we'll have correct answers for A and D. So another appropriate behavior: Dress neatly. Okay, so we have our four answers in there, and two of them are right; two of them are wrong. So we're going to change the scoring here to allow for multiple correct answers, and partial scoring, by going to the Quiz Properties. Here we do see our four answers worth 10 Points if we get it correct.
But down below, we do have something for Multiple Answer,s and Partial Score. So we'll choose multiple, and partial scoring. When we choose partial scoring, notice that the opportunity to change the Points disappears, and we can't penalize here. Without partial scoring, we could leave the correct answer at 10, and we could take away for wrong answers. So maybe we want to take away 10 for a wrong answer. But when we go to Partial Score now, you'll notice that goes to 0, and all we can do is give out partial scores; a total of 10.
So our correct ones are Show up for work on time, as well as Dress neatly at the bottom, so both of those should have a checkmark. Now with Dress neatly selected, since we just clicked there, we can go to the Properties tab now for this particular question, and change the Points. Let's type in 5. Now we'll go up to the other correct one, which is Show up for work on time. You can see the default there. We're going to click there, and type in 5 for that one. Alright, so we've set up partial scoring, and we've also disabled negative scoring by going to the partial scoring option.
But we do have both those options here now in Captivate 6. So let's preview this from the current slide; click the Preview button. And that means this will be the only question in our preview, since it's the last one before we get to the results. Okay, so let's say we choose one of them that's incorrect, Smoke inside the building, and one that is correct. We'll click Submit. When we click Submit, it takes a moment to take us to our results. You'll see that we've scored 5 out of 10. We got 1 question right out of 1, and of course, that represented 50%, because there was another correct answer.
We can review the quiz now by clicking review, and that just allows us to go back and look at those answers. So we got the first one wrong; the second one right. You can see that it should have been D. So we'll close up our Preview, and that's a quick intro to partial scoring, and negative scoring here in Captivate 6.
