Multiple Checkboxes with outcomes: affirmation or remediation


I am working on a project where the learner is to check off all the boxes that they think apply. If all the correct boxes are checked, they are sent to the affirmation layer with audio confirming their correct answers. If the correct boxes are not checked, they are sent to the remediation layer. 

I am having difficulty with the checkboxes revealing correct and incorrect states in the affirmation and remediation layers. 

Any ideas of how to make this interaction work as designed?

I did encounter such a problem before.

  1. For the affirmation layer, you need to check all check boxes, not just the correct ones, and add a condition for each of them, the wrong ones being verified if they are not selected.
    • If Check Box, C, D, E, 1, 4 and 7 is equal to Visited
    • If Check Box A, B, F, G, 2, 3, 5 and 6 is different to Visited
  2. For the remediation layer, change the conditions so it activates when at least one of the wrong boxes is selected. Have a condition for each wrong box being selected/visited upon clicking Submit. There must not have conditions for right boxes, only conditions for wrong boxes.
    • If Check Box A, B, F, G, 2, 3, 5 or 6 is equal to Visited
    • Have no condition for Check Box, C, D, E, 1, 4 and 7

The affirmation layer will appear only if all the good boxes are checked, while the remediation layer will appear if at least one bad box is checked.


Hi Rachael,

I suggest you 'Convert to Freeform' to create a question slide and let SL3 manage it all for you. Have a look at the attached slide 1.2.

There is still some work to be done with states but definitely an easier way then battling with triggers.

If you get all 6 correct you will get the affirmation layer but if you tick any incorrect or miss any correct you get the Remediation layer.

Hope this helps
