How to reset quizzes after first attempt

Hello all, 

I am currently using Articulate 360 to create online trainings using Studio (presenter, engage and quizmaker). I am running into an issue with quizmaker. I have a few different types of quizzes in my training (for ex/ a graded word bank and freeform drag and drop) and i want the learner to be able to attempt each quiz 2x. After the 1st incorrect attempt I want the quiz to reset so they can try again. For example, for the drag and drop i'd like the quiz to reset so that the items go back to their original position. When I google around to research this i am only seeing solutions for Storyline using triggers. I am not using Storyline. I'd appreciate any guidance. Thank you very much.

Hey Laura, welcome to the community!

Have you already enabled the Retry button on the Result Slide?  This option adds a Retry Quiz button to your result slide, so learners can retake the quiz. Then, select a number of attempts from the Retries drop-down.

Tip: If you only want to give learners the opportunity to retry your quiz when they fail, mark this option on the Failure layer but not the Success layer.

I hope that helps!

I'm trying to do this, too. I have 3 drag & drop questions in my quiz. I want to reset each one upon attempting the question - not at the end of the quiz. 

I have a Review button on the page that appears upon first attempt whether the question is answered correct or incorrect. I'd like to use that button to reset the question so it appears unattempted. How can I do that?

Hi Jan,

There isn't a way to "refresh" a singular slide - but you could look at using a "Jump to slide" to access a blank slide, which has a trigger to jump to slide question X when timeline starts? It would be a brief flash potentially between slides, but that would allow you to use the option Wendy mentioned with the "reset to initial state" of a slide.
