Can Storyline Display Different Feedbacks for a Try Mode Step?

Jun 18, 2012


I am using the try mode of a recording and I want to do the following:

  1. For attempt 1 →There will be no hint
  2. For incorrect attempt 1 Normal 0 oNotShowComments /> false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE → Display the default feedback layer named "Try Again"
  3. For attempt 2 → Display hint caption 1
  4. For incorrect attempt 2 Display the default feedback layer named "Try Again"
  5. For attempt 3 → Display hint caption 2
  6. For incorrect attempt 3 Display the feedback layer named "Incorrect"

I am able to do everything except point 6 where I am trying to display the second feedback for an incorrect input. I would appreciate it if somebody can tell me if I can do this in Storyline. I have attached the story file and the published output.

Also, I have noticed that Storyline creates an Incorrect layer for all try mode recordings. I was wondering when this layer appears.

Thank You!

Hey Aditya,

Really sorry that you haven't had any response here; your post somehow slipped through unnoticed! Apologies for that.

I took a look at your file and made some changes. The logic you're looking for (with different feedback appearing for each different attempt that the user makes) is a bit more complex than what the form-based defaults will allow in the question editor. However, the good news is, it's pretty easy to accomplish the effect you're looking for by creating a variable to track the number of attempts, and using conditional triggers to display the appropriate feedback each time the user attempts to enter an answer. In a situation like this I would disable the default feedback and use your own feedback layers as shown in the attached.
