Is it possible to change the "incorrect" text in a quiz review?

Dec 07, 2020

Hello, I have a quiz question that is numeric entry. However, the numeric entry that Articulate will evaluate is in reality the sum of other numeric entry fields on the slide. If the user gets the question wrong, when they review the question the text displayed will show the user the "correct" answer, which makes no sense in the context of the actual question. E.g. if the other numeric fields evaluate the values 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0, the feedback text will say that the user should have entered 4.5 as the correct answer. Is there a way to change this feedback text?

Hi, William,

I suggest that you turn off the built-in function that shows the correct answers during review. You do that by editing the Review Results trigger. Just deselect the checkbox for the "Show correct/incorrect responses when reviewing" function. 

Note: This applies to all the question slides. You can't turn it on or off for just one.

Instead of that, add your own Review feedback. In the Form View of a question slide, when you enter info in the "Post-quiz review" field, Storyline automatically adds a Review layer to the question slide. You can edit that layer, so the feedback for each question can say whatever you want it to. 

FYI: I used to use the built-in "Show correct/incorrect" function. But there were issues with people misinterpreting it. They'd keep answering incorrectly while thinking they were answering like the program told them to. And then they'd complain that the program was broken...  Now, I just use custom feedback (either immediate or during review).
