Modifying drag and drop quiz

Sep 24, 2013


I have created the quiz slide attached as a test for a drag and drop quiz I am planning to create, but I don't know how I can get the correct answers to stay where they are when the user starts to re-take the quiz.

At the moment I have set up the retry button to appear if any of the answers are incorrect, but I could only work out how to put a trigger on this button to restart the quiz completely. Does anybody know how I can stop the correct answers from moving so that the user only has to choose from the answers they got wrong when re-taking the quiz?

Many thanks,

Hi Sophie, 

I haven't seen any examples where they've kept only the correct answers on a revisit to a drag and drop, but wanted to also point you to the way to change the behavior of the drag/drop while in the question. You could set up the option with the Edit Drag and Drop to Return items to start point if dropped outside:  Select this checkbox if you want to force drag items to snap back to their original locations when users drop them outside of any targets or when users drop them on the wrong targets.  Then use the corresponding drop-down list to select “any drop target” or “a correct drop target”.

Hi Sophie,

It's not a default feature of Storyline to have the correct answers stay once submitting, but the option I showed would return any incorrect drag items back to their starting position if dropped outside the intended target. If you're looking for something different you can always share your thoughts with our Development team on new features you'd like to see.
