Maintain states with variables (Star Collection)

Hello! 

I have created a "star collection" board for a quiz. 

The concept is: 10 questions, yellow star for correct questions, red star for wrong. After each question user must see how many yellow and red stars have been collected.

What I am trying to achieve: If users have a yellow star for Question 1 and then move to Question 2. I want them to be able to see the Q1 yellow star along with the star for Q2 (either yellow or red). 

Please see attached. I literally cannot find the answer on this one :/

(check master slide as well..)

Thanks!

Take a look at this project.

It's easier to keep track if you create a variable for each question.

I used a number variable with a default value of -1.

-1: Unanswered

0: Incorrect

1: Correct

When the correct layer comes up there is a trigger to set the question variable to 1.

When the incorrect layer comes up, there is a trigger to set the question variable to 0.

There are also triggers on the Feedback Master to change the state of the stars.

For example Star 1 has the following triggers:

Timeline Start: Change State of Star 1 to correct if q1 = 1

Timeline Start: Change State of Star 1 to incorrect if q1 = 0

When Variable q1 Changes: Change State of Star 1 to correct if q1 = 1

When Variable q1 Changes: Change State of Star 1 to incorrect if q1 = 0

Hi Russell

Thank you very much. It works fine. I literally spent 5 hours today to figure out how to do it and tried pretty much everything. I am surprised that other people have not asked this type of question, as star collections is a good gamification aspect. 

However, I still cannot understand how you managed to make it...How does "software" know what is q1, q2 etc?

Thank you very much!
