Report Slide in ActivePresenter 9 is a summary slide of the learner’s performance in a course. It reports stuff like quiz scores, learner’s responses, or pass/fail results. You can let learners know their own results by adding a Report Slide at the end of the course. 

Report Slide allows learners to track and review all interactions on their own. Once they complete a course, they can see what they have done. Let’s learn how to use Report Slide in ActivePresenter 9 in today’s tutorial.

ResultA string represented in the output language of the presentation. It can be one of the following values: Correct, Incorrect, Incomplete, (Empty)
Learner ResponseType of the interaction represented in the output language of the presentation

Note: There are some slight differences between the Score, Max Score, and Result of questions setting partial score and of questions not setting partial score.

For example, in a Multiple Response Question that sets partial scores, if learners don’t select all the correct options, their correct answers still earn points. However, the result of the question is still counted as Incorrect

To insert a reference into a text-based object, do the following:

Another common example of using customized parameters is to set pass/fail conditions for a course. If learners pass the course, the Review Course button will appear and allow them to review it. On the contrary, if learners fail the course, the Try Again button will show up and allow them to take the course again. See Set Pass/Fail Conditions for a Test for more information.
