Limiting number of assessment attempts
I am required to create an stand alone assessment made up of a title slide, assessment introduction slide, 5 question slides and an assessment summary slide.
The conditions are:
1) Learners are given three attempts at the assessment at which point they are locked out.
2) The lock out needs to work independent of the LMS, i.e. not use the LMS to enforce lock out.
3) If learners close the browser after viewing any of the questions (or the browser crashes) this counts as an attempt and they need to restart the entire assessment again from the title slide.
The challenge I have is that the value of the variable that tracks the number of attempts is not retained between sessions unless auto resume or prompt to resume is set to on.
Turning these to on sends the learner back to the previous location which may be question 3 of 5, failing to meet condition 3.
I have tried setting up a variable per question and a trigger which jumps to the title slide if the question has been viewed previously (than resetting this on the title slide) but when auto resuming this does not seem to work.
Hoping someone has a suggestion on how to make this work without the complexity.
