Can't get a correct answer

Dec 30, 2016

I have an interaction (see attached) where the learner clicks the appropriate switches to match a given scenario.  Normal state is "ON" and selected state is "OFF".  For this situation, the correct answer is panel 1 - switch 1 is Normal and panel 2 - switch 7 is normal.  Everything else is selected.  No matter what I do, I cannot get the interaction to select a correct answer layer.  I have attached the slide.

Thanks for any help.

Hey Terry - the initial states for the objects were different, so I adjusted them all to start as 'Normal', otherwise you would need triggers for each object to adjust what you want the state to be and the built in ones would not work.

Also - I set the conditions for the incorrect answer as this seemed to be overriding the correct answer.

It seems to be working now.

Updated file attached.

Hi Leslie... please look at this version... still does not give me a correct answer.  Panel 1 - switches 1 and 2 should be "ON" or selected. (By default when the switches are viewed for the first time, panel 1 - sw 1 is "ON" so i set that as normal.)

Panel 2 - sw 7 is ON or selected...  I set everything else to normal or OFF... Thanks for the help.

Hi Terry

see if the attached update to your file works how you want.

i changed the first set of switches to be a button set and the same for the second set - which means only one button in each set can be selected at anytime.  If they switch one on and then change mind the first one goes off and the second one retains 'selected' state. I also updated your triggers.

Hi Terry,

I converted this slide to a 'Pick Many' freeform question, and I believe the interaction now works as you'd like it to. When switches SW1 D1 and SW2 D7 are 'ON', the correct layer appears. Any other combination results in the Try Again layer. Please test this on your end, and let me know if it works for you!

WOW... that's a lot of work... I really appreciate the effort.  Unfortunately, it still does not solve my issue.  In the example provided, there is only one correct solution, panel 1 - sw 1 and 2 are ON and panel 2 - sw 7 is ON.  All other switches are in the OFF postion.  If the learner chooses ANY other combination, it is incorrect.  I never dreamed this would be this difficult to solve.  I do appreciate everyone's efforts.
