Hey Ricky! This is definitely possible with variables! Here's how I would set this up:

  • Create a numeric variable for each question, i.e. Question1, Question2, and so on. Set the default value of the numeric variable to 3.
  • On the base layer, add a variable reference: Attempts Remaining: %Question1%. This will display the number of attempts the learner has left.
  • On the Try Again layer, add a trigger to subtract 1 from the variable when the timeline starts. 
  • On the Incorrect layer, add a trigger to subtract 1 from the variable when the timeline starts. (This will ensure the attempts remaining displays a 0).

Check out the sample file I put together for you, and let me know if you have any questions about it!
