Attempt Count not working

Jul 29, 2013

I've created a custom drag and drop activity and I'm having issues with the Attempt Count variable. I would like the user to click the Check Answer button and see the Try Again layer if they get it wrong the first time and see the Incorrect layer if they get it wrong a second time. Currently it just goes to the Incorrect layer on the first attempt. The second issue I'm having is that if I remove the trigger to go to the Incorrect layer, the user will get the Try Again layer, but after they click the Try Again button to return to the drag and drop the activity is "locked" (the elements can't be moved) so the user isn't able to try again. I've attached the slide CustomDandD.story if that will help identify the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Casey,

Wow...that's quite a drag and drop!  I can't quite follow the logic for everything you've done...but did notice that your conditions to show a particular layer include reference to an "attempts" variable.  However, I can't seem to find any triggers where you are incrementing that variable.  We don't have access to the built-in Storyline attempts, so adding your own isn't the same (at least I think that's the case).  So I'd start by looking there to see if that's an issue.  Otherwise, could you explain a bit about your design and walk us through what the triggers on the layers are doing?  That might help us problem solve what seems to be a bit of a maze!
