Drawing questions from question banks

Feb 26, 2017

I am trying to achieve a slide that draws one question at a time randomly from a question bank. I would like each question to be triggered when the user clicks a button, and when they have 5 correct answers, a slide layer is revealed. I have set up a variable to do this (Ithink!). I can't get it to work. Can you help?

Hi Bronwyn

see attached.

Going back and forth the way you are effectively removes the random features of the QB so I've created T/F variables for each question q1,q2 etc so that if one is used it gets bypassed the next time the user goes to the question bank.  

For testing I also put a shape with the question number so you can see it is drawing randomly.

Also, because Sl is checking a variable each time it hits a quiz slide in the question bank to see if it has already been used, there is a slight blip as it flashes.  There is no way of removing this unless you perhaps want to add a transition to the quiz slides that will make it a little less noticeable.

Anyway, hope this helps or gives you an idea.

Hi Bronwyn,

Maybe you consider this method.
I have added 10 Questions in the question pool and it require to have 5 correct answers to display the final slide. You may need to fine tune this method as there are only 10 questions.
You may change the condition of 50. I choose 50 because there are 10 questions and it requires 5 correct answers.

hope this helps.

Hi Bronwyn

that would be a instructional design decision - sure you could add more to the question bank but I would be thinking if they've tried 8 times and haven't got 5 correct at what stage do you then feedback there may be issue or should you look at whether the content is giving them the answers (unless this is a pre-test).  

The text box is just the variable reference that you can delete off - I put it on for testing purposes only to make sure the variable is ticking over.

Perhaps Rex's example works better for you.
