Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to have a non-trackable question in the body of the lesson, where the learner will get two attempts to correctly answer the question. If they get the 1st attempt incorrect, a text box will popup and say "incorrect: try again". When the learner trys again and they get the 2nd attempt incorrect, the correct answer will popup in the feedback of the incorrect attempt.

Is this possibele? I am not sure how to go ahead with this? Thanks.

Hi Ashley,

I think you could achieve this with an answer that is initially hidden on the incorrect layer and using the attempt count variable that is automatically created by SL when you change the attempt count to more than one.

Go to Incorrect Layer

So, you'd place the answer on the incorrect layer and set it's initial state to hidden.

Then, create new trigger:

Action: Change state of

On object: this would be the "hidden" answer you created above

To state: normal

When: timeline starts

Object: Incorrect

Click the Show Condition link and then the plus sign

List: Variable option is active

If: AttemptCount

Operator: Equal to

Value: 2

I can upload a quick and dirty story if that would help

Hello Everyone,

Is it possible to have a non-trackable question in the body of the lesson, where the learner will get two attempts to correctly answer the question. If they get the 1st attempt incorrect, a text box will display"incorrect: try again". When the learner trys again andthey get the 2nd attemptincorrect, the correct answer will popup in the feedback of the incorrect attempt.

I understood that this can be done in Storyline. But, is it possible to achieve the same functionality in Quizmaker?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
