So Rod had been on to me for a long time to look into partial scoring. Which is basically a way of conveying ”You sorta got it right, but not entirely” as a quiz score. Currently all Captivate Quiz Questions and Interactive Objects can only report two scores: Zero and whatever number you gave it other than zero.
So we wanted to find a way to open up the world of partial scoring to the grand populous. After a little more Captivate spelunking we found a way to BEND CAPTIVATE TO OUR WILL! MUAHAHA! The rest, as they say, is the Infosemantics Interactive Master Widget Version 1.1!
Don’t believe me? Take a look at this video here:
Pretty cool right?
And before you ask, yes this will be in the next version of WidgetFactory. Definitely for Interactive Widgets, most likely for Question Widgets too. WidgetFactory 5.6 shouldn’t be too far away and you can harness the awesome power of partial scoring for your very own widgets!
(And yes I know I haven’t blogged about the features in WidgetFactory 5.5 yet. STILL GETTING AROUND TO IT!)
