Draw from Question Bank - Previous button?

Happy Friday!!  I'm hoping someone can help me - and maybe it's a really obvious thing, but I can't figure it out.

I have a 'final exam' type story that is just a welcome slide, then a series of questions randomly drawn from a question bank, then a result slide.  When I publish it, there is no 'previous' button on the question slides.  I would like to give learners the option to go bank and change responses if they need to.  (not just 'review' once they have finished all the questions)

Thanks in advance for any help!

HI Terry,

Do you mean you'd like to add a retry button to the results slide as well as the default review button?

If so, you can do this:

  1. Click to make the Results slide active
  2. Click the Edit Results slide button in the Question panel on the right
  3. In the Results Slide Properties window, click the "options" on the left (the one with the gear icon)
  4. Then, add a checkmark to the Allow user to retry quiz checkbox

If that's not what you meant, or if these directions are a bit fuzzy and you'd like some screenshots to assist, please shout out.

Thanks Rebecca! 

You can also find the option to turn that on within your Question bank, in the same area. Look to the slide properties box in the bottom right hand corner, and it should look like the below. 

You'll see where I highlighted the check box for the "Previous" button. Hope that helps!

I figured out what I did wrong..  I tried to do this the way Ashley described, and I selected All my questions before modifying the configuration.  I expected that would change the properties for all the selected questions, but it only changed it for one.

Very confusing, I will submit this as an issue - if you can't change the properties for all the selected questions, then those properties should be disabled.

Hi Terry,

My apologies for the confusion, you may have noticed on the screen shot I have above, it's only referencing that the properties are for "Q1.1 Test Question", so that it's specific to each one, not a whole bank. I think what you're suggesting would make a great feature request though!
