Check Mark / Tick Marks in Menu for an Assessment

Oct 31, 2022

Hello there,

I have a 70-question final training assessment. I would like users to be able to have the freedom to navigate through all questions in attempt to answer the questions they are sure about first then to freely navigate using the menu to answer the remaining questions. The current state today is that if a learner views a slide without answering the question, the checkmark appears in the menu. Yes, the learner has viewed the slide but has yet to complete it by answering the question and clicking the Submit button. Is there a way I can set up the menu so the checkmarks do not appear until after the user clicks Submit vs. just viewing the slide?

I read through this article but didn't see an answer to this question specifically:

I was able to figure out how to turn on Show Slide Draw Contents, which is cool. BUT again, it will show the checkmark even if the learner doesn't answer the question.

Hi Patty,

Currently, there is no way to change when the checkmark appears next to the slide in the player. That would be a great idea for a feature request! You can submit one here. If the request makes it onto our feature roadmap, we’ll make sure to update you in this conversation!

Thanks for reaching out!

Hi Patty,

I was in a similar situation as you: I had a 100-question quiz, and learners needed to have the ability to skip questions and come back to them later. I was having a tricky time figuring this out, but here's what I came up with:

  • I have the course menu on with the Show Slide Draw Contents. However, on the slide before the quiz begins, I used JS to hide all the questions in the menu.
  • Next, all the questions are stored in a Question Bank. On each question, there is a "Revisit" checkbox that, when clicked, shows the question in the menu. There is JS on each question slide, and this is the cumbersome part: you have to add the question verbatim to the Javascript (I can't quite figure out the JS to do this automatically)
    • Learners can then show/hide the questions they want to revisit and use the menu to navigate to just those questions

Hope this is useful!

It looks like your menu is simply set up differently than mine. I think your questions are nested in an additional dropdown menu, so you need to change the JS to take that into account:

 var targetList = "#outline-content > ul > li > ul > li:nth-child(n) > div"

(this replaces the first line that I had) -- you'll see yours has an additional <li> and unordered list <ul>

Thank you so much! You are right. It does take time to set it up. I also noticed it doesn't always work, especially when used with other triggers. I am wondering if there is a similar java script that when the user clicks on the next button, that is when the slide name appears on the menu?
