Knowledge Check Issue

I have created an eLearn in Storyline 3. I have several different scenes. Throughout the elearn there are Knowledge Checks. Once you complete the Knowledge Check it will take you to the next scene. If you click the PREV button from the first slide of the next scene, it takes you back to the last Knowledge Check question. When you do this, the Submit button is no longer there because it is set to one attempt (which we want), so now there are PREV and NEXT buttons, but the NEXT doesn't work and you can’t get to the next slide (which is actually a new scene). Is there a solution for this?

"Jump to Previous" is a dynamic trigger, it will always go to the slide you were on prior to the current one, even if you are using the menu to jump around.  It doesn't follow the menu order, which is not obvious, in my opinion.

Solution:
Edit the PREV button trigger to "Jump to Slide 1.4" (select the correct slide) so that it goes to a specific slide, skipping over the Knowledge Check.

Also, on the slide before the knowledge check, make sure the "Jump to Next" only goes to the KC if it has not been completed.  Use a variable and a condition to skip over the KC if it's been completed.

 

ALTERNATIVE NOTE:
When I use Knowledge Checks, I usually don't make them real SL question slides.  Rather, I create my own controls and when they answer, I bring in my own "Correct/Incorrect" box to appear over the original question, and my own PREV/NEXT buttons then work all the time.  If they revisit the slide, it is set to "saved state" so it shows their answer.

Ok, but what if they want to be able to use the PREV button to go back and look at the Knowledge Check?
I don't have the Next button checked off to show on the Knowledge Check slides, but once you have answered the question and clicked the submit button, if you revisit that Knowledge Check slide, the NEXT and PREV buttons display. If I add a trigger for the NEXT button on that Knowledge Check slide, then it always appears there, along with the Submit button which I don't want.

Thanks.

It's easy to forget that we have complete control of elements on a slide, so faking questions and answer results gets easy again when you ignore what you know about real question slides.  Once you do that, all the shackles come off and you can get as creative as you want with fake questions.  (unlike a real graded QUIZ later).

The attached shows several examples.  

FILTERS: Knowledge check layers
Pretty much each slide in this scene has a knowledge check that occurs as a layer.

PIPE/HOSE: Knowledge Check as SLIDES
This scene has 3 actual question slides with feedback layers.   On this you'll see how I used a hotspot and a NEXT button that only appear after the question has been answered, so if you revisit the slide, you can navigate forward.

(eek, sorry it's so big, and that is after I trimmed it down to only two scenes, hah!)

Or maybe I didn't get the attachment because it was too large?
