Multi-variable Drag and Drop doesn't count after retry

Jun 08, 2021

I created a Drag & Drop interaction that allows you to drag any one of three object to the same drop.  For example DragA1, DragA2, or DragA3 are correct if dragged to DropA1 or DropA2.  It automatically counts this question as incorrect and doesn't give you any points for the question if you get it correct (set to 10).

I set up the retry to reset all of the objects and variables back to their original state by adding a trigger to jump back to the slide instead of hiding the retry layer.  The slide is set to return to original state when revisited.

How can I make sure this question is counted correctly?

Another issue is that when you move a drag item back out of the correct spot, the associated variable doesn't change.  Is there a way to reset a variable when a drag item is moved from the drop position?

Please see the attached file.

Hi, Bonnie.

Thank you for sharing your .story file and the details of what you're trying to accomplish!

Since you are overriding the Drag and Drop settings in form view with your own triggers, Storyline won't mark the question Correct. My suggestion would be to convert your slide to a Pick One freeform question instead.

The idea is that the Pick one would choose between Correct and Incorrect (which in the attached file I added as two off-screen ovals) and would score 10 points if Correct is chosen.

We can force that option to be chosen based on the triggers you set up for your Drag and Drop question.
