Help with Drag and Drop interaction needed

Feb 10, 2014

I'm working on a complicated drag and drop interaction and I can't seem to get the final interaction to work.

There are four drag elements and 3 correct responses.

Suspicious 1 = hotspot 1 or hotspot 3 correct

Suspicous 2 = hotspot 1 or hotspot 3 correct

Not Suspicious = hotspot 2 correct

The Not Sure element is a hint and will not produce a correct response.

Each correct response has a custom feedback layer for that situation and all are triggering fine. My problem is that I want the conclusion layer to show only after the learner views all of the correct response feedback layers.

What you'll see in the attached is that I added select states to the close button on each correct response layer and triggers to change the state of each to selected when clicked. I then created a slide trigger Show layer Conclusion when the states of the labels S1, S2 and NS change to drop correct AND conditions for each of the Close 1, Close 2 and Close 3 buttons that they have been selected.

If you remove the Close 1-3 conditions from the slide trigger the Conclusion layer will show, but it shows as soon as the last drop correct state changes. I want to delay this until the last correct feedback layer is viewed. Is there another way besides adding the close button conditions? I tried arranging the order of the state changes on the layers but this didn't help.

I attached the slide so you can see how I set this up.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Geralyn,

Instead of states, have you looked into using a numeric variable? I set up something along these lines on your slide and am showing the layer based on the Conclusion variable being equal to 3 - and the variable is adjusted at the end of each layer when the user clicks on the Close button by adding 1. 

Check it out and let me know if you have any question.
