Drag and Drop second attempt

Jul 29, 2015

Is there a way to send the item back to its initial position on second attempt? Thank you.

The way I do this is as follows.

  1. set the slide properties to reset to initial state.
  2. on the incorrect  layer I add a try again button and have it jump to a blank slide.
  3. on the blank slide I have a trigger to jump to the drag and drop slide when the timeline starts.
  4. on the blank slide I shorten the timeline to make it as short as it wil go.

this is really the only way I have found to clear the drag and drop. If anyone has a better solution I would love to hear it.

Hi Jessie,

By default, the user will see their previous answer when they try again. Nancy's method would allow it to be reset when they use that set up and try again - but if he's revisiting the slide, such as in a review or similar, you won't be able to use the method Nancy mentioned as revisiting the slide will reset the entire thing.

Hi Jessie,

My apologies if I wasn't clear - there is not a built in method to have both currently in the sense of using the "reset" for the try again and then being able to revisit that slide and see how the user answered correctly. Hopefully someone in the community will be able to share some additional thoughts with you on what they've set up to work around this.
