freeform pick one for multiple fill in the blank quiz slide

Hi 

I have created a freeform pick one slide with 5 data entry boxes. I have followed the video tutorial on your site but on entering the wrong answer I am unable to get the incorrect feedback layer, but a text box saying "you must complete your answer before submitting". I have tried different methods including variables and unable to get the incorrect layer to show up. Any suggestions would be welcome.

(Note:) I got it to work previously but lost the initial set up I had when I played around with it because of the fact that on revisiting it started showing the "you must complete your answer before submitting" instead of the correct/incorrect layers to show up. 

 

Thanks

Tina

Hi Tina

here is a link to a demo file I did for evaluating multiple text fields (it’s a SL2] file but the principles are the same.

Things to check

  • Have you added the correct and incorrect buttons in form view and selected ‘correct’ and
  • are the triggers in the correct order

hope this helps

Those are great suggestions Wendy! Storyline does execute triggers as they appear on the panel so ordering is crucial.

Tina, 

I've checked the file you attached earlier. It appears there are two things that need to be changed.

  1. The button triggers are missing. I've attached image button triggers.png. While the project has a trigger to change the button state to "Selected", it does not have a trigger to show the layer. In the image I added a trigger to show the Incorrect and Correct button layers, when their button states are changed to Selected. 
  2. The text entry boxes suggest to fill in the blanks, when I do, I get an incorrect answer. After looking up the conditions, it looks like the blanks need to be filled in with the entire word. Not just the letters after the first letter of each correct answer. I.e. "Last" instead of "ast".

I've attached the outputs of the correct and incorrect layers showing up properly after making the changes. 

Hope this helps.

On revisiting I get the "you must complete your answer before submitting" if I enter the wrong answer. My file is attached below where I have a variable for when the timeline starts but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Any suggestions are welcome

Hi Tina

sorry I'm not sure I understand.

you are only giving them one attempt at answering the question.  Do you want them to be able to progress to next slide then click previous and come back and answer it again?

What is the variable 'finished' set to true at the beginning of the slide mean?  That is what is stopping you from redoing the because that is set to True and then used in the correct/incorrect triggers.

If you want them to have more than one attempt at answering you can increase that on the form view
