Is it possible to share content for Correct and Incorrect feedback layers?

Feb 18, 2020

I've got a few hundred questions in my question banks, and am looking for a way to streamline things.

For many questions, the same response is used in both the 'Correct' and 'Incorrect' feedback layers. Is there a way to add one text box (and the corresponding text-to-speech) to either the base question layer, or to another layer, and display them in both feedback layers?

Hi Allan,

Thank you for reaching out! 

While I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, what might help is to utilize Feedback Masters to help streamline those layers. Feedback Masters let you control the default colors, fonts, text, and objects for question feedback layers. We have a great help guide that will provide more details when working with Feedback Masters

Please let us know if you have any questions about this!

Thanks, Vincent.

I'm using Feedback Masters, yet I don't think they can help me solve this issue. None of the Correct/Incorrect answers are standard--they vary for every question.

Here's how I have it set up currently:

  • Each 'Incorrect' feedback layer has TTS audio that says "Incorrect. This is why..."
  • In that same layer is a text box containing the "This is why..." content.
  • Each 'Correct' feedback layer has TTS audio that says "Correct. This is why..."
  • In that same layer is a text box containing the "This is why..." content.

The "This is why..." content is often the same for both the 'Incorrect' and 'Correct' layers, and I would like to find a way to avoid duplicating it in each layer, if possible.

I've attached a sample file showing the situation.

Thanks for any suggestions!

This is what I would do - put the text on a third layer and pop a trigger on each of the feedback layers to show the text layer when their timeline starts. Make sure the new layer is set to not hide other layers - and I've had to create a new blank feedback master for it, so your coloured boxes don't hide the underlying layers.
