2 versions, 1 file - quizzes

I have a course that I developed that we also had to translate into Spanish. So when the learner enters the course they can choose English or Spanish. The problem I have is that I can only have 1 results slide which doesn't work when you have 2 different versions to choose from within 1 course. Is there a way to do this without having the English and Spanish translation on a quiz slide?

Great question!  If you're up for a little work, you could:

1. Use a True/False variable at the start of the course (when the English/Spanish selection is being made) to store whether they desire Spanish or English.  Initial state set to False, but changing to True if learner chooses Spanish.

2. On each quiz question, create a Spanish state for every piece of text and replace the English text with the Spanish text.  Note, you'll need to create new text boxes for the questions (to not have text associated with the radio buttons).

3. Add slide level triggers for each piece of text to change to the Spanish state if the T/F variable is True.

It will take some work, but I've attached a sample for you!

I hope this helps,

I am having some difficulty editing my multiple choice questions so they have new text boxes. The new text boxes are still associated with the radio buttons. Should I create the slide first with the various states for the text boxes and then convert it to a multiple choice question using a Free Form question?

Thanks, Jim

Mike,

I deleted the old distractor text and replaced them with new text boxes. Now the question is not evaluating the question correctly.

Did you create the question first and then go back and add the text boxes by dragging them next to the radio button? Does the text box need to be linked to the radio button somehow?

Thanks, Jim

Jim,

Here's what I did.

1. Add the question.

2. In form view, hit your space bar one time in each of the choice areas.  This creates the choice buttons.

3. In slide view, use the pull handles to minimize the choice boxes (towards the left) area so it's just the button that shows.

4. Add your new text boxes and place alongside the buttons

5. Add your states, etc.

Hi! I just wanted to share, for future searches, a post made by Owen in this thread.

I did a variation that uses a single quiz with variables that serve as content placeholders. Based on the language selected, the actual questions and answers are loaded from other variables.

Upside = single quiz.

Downside = lots of variables to manage but you can easily use MS Word or Excel to manage this.

Here is a screenr showing how I did this.

Jim....

One other item to check....

Do you have shuffle answers on?   It's possible that the radio buttons are randomly moving about.  But since your text boxes aren't assigned to them, they stay put and throw things off.

PS.  One other thing of note...and I'm not sure how I missed this before...but I think you should be able to just create your quiz question normally with the responses, and then add a new state (for the language).  It seems to be working as I test it this morning.

This would save the need to create new text boxes.
