Making a True/False Variable Determine the Learning Path

Hi Everyone,

I'm want to make the role selection on the opening slide determine the learning path after required slides have been reviewed. I've tried assigning a true/false variable to the buttons labeled with the roles, then setting the next button to go to slide 1.5 or 1.6 when the variable changes to TRUE. No luck.

My variable reference box  (that I placed on the last slide in which they need to review and click Next.) does not indicate that the variable has changed.

Then after reading one of the previous discussions, I tried setting the trigger to =NOT Assignment, but still no luck. I want the users to select a role on slide 1.1 then have that selection determine if the user will go to slide 1.5 or 1.6 after reviewing slides 1.2, 1.3 & 1.4. 

I've attached an image of my triggers on each of the pages as well as my placement of the trigger on 1.4. If that is my problem please give me some direction. I have it at the bottom of the trigger panel. Can someone help me please?

Hi Karel

this is what I would have:

Slide 1.1 adjust variable x (1.5) to true when user clicks button x

Slide 1.1 adjust variable y (1.6) to true when user clicks button y

is there a next button on 1.4?  I would adjust the triggers to

Slide 1.4 jump to slide 1.5 when user clicks next on condition that variable x = true

Slide 1.4 jump to slide 1.6 when user clicks next on condition that variable y = true

Hope that helps

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for offering a solution, However, that is the way I've programmed it. I thought perhaps it was because I have the trigger on the layer of 1.1 so I move it to the base layer. It still does not change the variable when x or y button is clicked. Are you able to see my attachment and perhaps let me know if I've programmed the trigger incorrectly?
