Freeform text entry

I have three slides attached with 18 potential text entry fields available. I want the learner to be able to identify which field to use and what to type in based on the scenario.

Slide 1 - Out of the 18 fields, only one field should be used and only has one correct answer. What should I do with the rest of the fields so that any value typed is an incorrect answer? Right now I am getting an Invalid Answer layer saying You must complete the question before submitting.

Slide 2 - Out of the 18 fields, 3 fields can be used correctly as three independent answers. Right now it thinks all three fields are required to get a correct answer. What should I do so that either of the three fields are acceptable correct answers.

Slide 3 - Out of the 18 fields, two answers are correct. It is working properly, I just need to figure out how to mark the other fields as incorrect.

 

Thanks!

Hi Leslie,

For multiple answers, what I discovered was that I can enter multiple answers by using the "Field to Evaluate" drop-down on the form view. I had to go to slide view and then back to form view for each answer so the variable is saved. Even if you currently don't see it in Form view, it is saved on the variable list somehow. If you look at the Variable list, you will see that there are several variables used per slide. Here are the answers and the corresponding variable title.

Slide 1 - Buy and Sell, Target % field = 4 (Text Entry 24)

I don't know how to mark the other fields as incorrect if the learner types any value on them.

Slide 2 - Sell, Target % = 0 (Text Entry 58) OR Sell, % Change = -100 (Text Entry 52) OR Sell % Position, % Change = -100 (Text Entry 56)

Any of these options are correct. The default for multiple answers using Form View is "and". I don't know how to make the answers "or".

Slide 3 - Buy, % Change = 2 (Text Entry 68) AND Buy, Target % = 5 (Text Entry 74)

I was able to enter both answers even if you just see one of them on the Form View. If you preview and look at the variable list, they're on there. I don't know how to mark the other fields as incorrect if the learner types any value on them.

I updated the attachment.
