Hello Thomas..

One question..I dont really understand the point of the timer?

Do you mean the participant enter his own time to answer a quizz?

I wish i could use the exact timer you did beautifully design so the participant would see how long he/she took to answer a quiz,

then it would sum the time of the 4 different quizzes he/she completes.

This is to create a contest where the winner will be the one with "100% correct answers + the quickest answering time"...

I have read all the thread and can't find a solution ....

I know how to use the storyline elapsed time on the top bar of my result slide..but can't figure out how to

-design a better one

-and cumulate the time results of the 4 quizzes...

Any help welcome...

Hi Thomas,

This is such a cool timer!  Thanks for sharing.  I was wondering if you knew a simple way to track how long a user takes to complete an essay question?  I need to assign an essay question to several people and record how long it took each to answer.  Any ideas on how to approach this?
