Fill In the Blank Quiz Retry Problem

Mar 06, 2013

Hi everyone,

I am having a problem with a fill-in-the-blank question in my assessment.

The assessment is a 10 question quiz, drawn from an 18 item question bank.  I have one fill-in-the blank question. The problem occurs after the quiz has been completed. If the student does not pass the quiz, and they click Retry Quiz on the results page, all questions return to their initial state except the fill-in-the-blank. The student's previous response remains in the text box. I experimented with the Slide Property for Revisiting, but that does not seem to change what happens. Has anyone else experienced this?

Did you all ever find a solution for this?  I am having the same issue and followed all of the suggestions given by Nancy in the thread linked above.  It is still not clearing out the fill-in-the blanks!  I am only testing in preview, is that the problem??  I am using a Question Bank if that may be complicating things.  Thanks for any advice anyone has.

Hi Roxanne,

I did receive a reply from Articulate's product support. Apparently this is a known bug that occurs only on Fill-In-The-Blanks that are in a Question Bank. They don't yet have a solution for the issue. Support did recommend I try this:

"In the Fill in the Blank question, add this trigger to the slide

Set TextEntry equal to (blank)          

As I was out of time to correct/debug my assessment I just dropped the question from the bank. Maybe when they update the software I'll give it another go.

Hope this is helpful,
