How to stop double counting a variable
I am creating a self-assessment that uses hot spots to track answers. I have also included "Hint" and "Tell Me" buttons in case the learner needs a little help.
I'm using a numeric variable called "scoring."
I've created a trigger to add 1,000 points if the answer is correct.
Another trigger to subtract 500 points if the Hint button is clicked.
and a final trigger to subtract 1,000 points if the Tell Me button is used.
The triggers work fine, but there are several problems that could arise that I do not know how to address (though I have been trying!).
1. If someone clicks BOTH the Hint and Tell Me buttons, they will be -1,500. I don't want them to be minus more than 1,000 on any one screen.
2. If someone clicks the Hint or Tell Me button again, they will be minus even more points.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to handle these 2 issues? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
