Drag and Drop Reset withTry Again Multiple Attempts

Hi All,

Just created a Screenr on creating a Drag and Drop Quiz with 2 attempts. The D&D resets after the first attempt; that is, the objects go back to their original position. On the second attempt, Learners are brought to the Incorrect layer. Of course, you can set up as many attempts as you want!

Uploading the story here. Have seen this question appear periodically, so thought it might be helpful to have a tutorial and an example.

Hi Leslie

Thank You for your response, but I know that we set the automatically decide the slide property than review button work correctly, but my issue is that how to set the multiple attempt in the drag-drop with reset all the options. because with the automatic decide drag-drop cannot we reset & we set the initial state than review button work incorrect.

Please suggest.

Hi Reena!

You can allow multiple attempts on the question type, but the slide will not re-set utilizing the Automatically Decide setting. Sounds like you are utilizing the Reset to initial state to overcome this, but this will not allow your review process to work as designed.

If you would like to see this handled differently, you are welcome to share with our product development team here.

Hi Dario, 

I know there are a few workarounds in the E-Learning Heroes community to reset the drag and drop, but I can understand how that would make life easier to just have that as an option. I think it would be worth telling our product team about it here!

In case you're wondering, here's how we manage all of the ideas we receive! So the prevalence of workarounds may be why this hasn't risen to the top yet.

Hi Rebecca

Your example is very useful!

I tried for 2 hours to do the same same in my quiz with the only difference that I wanted the user to have 2 attempts (attempts=2 and show layer false in try again if var=2.00) It never worked: I always go back to the Try again layer.

Then I tried on your example. It does not work either!

Attached your file with the test on Var modified in the Try again layer.

If you have any idea, I'd appreciate that!

Thank you very much!

Hi Yoann,

Glad that you found Rebecca's example helpful.

Unfortunately she does not make it back to the forums since she retired, but I took a look to see if I could help you out here.

I found the culprit. This trigger is setting the 'try' variable to always = 1, so it's never incrementing:

You can change it to this:

I've re-attached the file and I think it now works as you wish.

Hope that helps :)
