I want to add a button in a quiz that learners won't get penalized for clicking. (Storyline 360)
Oct 07, 2019
I have a software simulation quiz I created in Storyline 360, where users have to click on hotspots in order to get the correct answer. Everything works as it should, except I created an "Instructions" button for users to refer to as they progress through the simulation. When clicked, this shows the instructions layer, which lists what users need to do, and then users can close it by clicking the "Close" button that appears on that layer. That all works great.
The only problem is, if you click on that "Instructions" button, the quiz considers that a "click" in a wrong place, so it marks that step as wrong.
Does anyone have any ideas about how how to tell Storyline, "Do the trigger for this button, but ignore it for testing purposes?" Would having the trigger ALSO jump to the current slide "reset" the slide in a way, so it doesn't count the click as an error?
Also, I did a little research and now know I can also recreate (perhaps more efficiently) the instructions effect by using lightboxes, or even adding the instructions slide to the menu, but I try to stay away from menu controls as much as possible for a cleaner look when publishing in Rise. Also, making the instructions button trigger a lightbox instead of a layer didn't fix the problem of the quiz recognizing the click as an error.
