Multiple Resonse Quiz with Multiple Feedback Options

Hello all,

I have a multiple response quiz set up but the client wants different feedback to appear based on the selections chosen. The correct answer would be A, B, D and they want the following feedback:

[If only one correct response is selected: “This statement is true, but there are additional correct responses. Please try again.”]
[If only two correct responses are selected: “These statements are true, but there are additional correct responses. Please try again.”]
[If “C” is selected in any combination: “You have selected an incorrect response. Please try again.”]

Would variables be the way to go to do this? Is this even possible in SL360? Thanks in advance!

Hi, Anji,

Yes, that's doable.

Since you're giving the users multiple attempts, do the following on the Try Again layer:

  • Add the various responses as states to the feedback textbox. For example, have states for OneCorrect, TwoCorrect, and Incorrect.
  • Add triggers with conditions to change the state of the textbox based on which responses are in the selected state. 
    • For example: Change the state of TryAgainFeedback to Incorrect if itemC is selected. 
    • You will need a trigger for each possible response that is partially correct but that doesn't include the one wrong answer. Example:
      • Change the state of TryAgainFeedback to OneCorrect if itemA is selected AND item B is not selected AND item C is not selected AND item D is not selected.
      • Change the state of TryAgainFeedback to OneCorrect if itemB is selected AND item A is not selected AND item C is not selected AND item D is not selected.
      • Change the state of TryAgainFeedback to OneCorrect if itemD is selected AND item A is not selected AND item B is not selected AND item C is not selected.

Note that I used names in my examples. Yup, it helps to give all objects names that make them easy to identify.

BTW, the checkbox items retain their names (default names: Checkbox 1, Checkbox 2, etc.) even when the answered are shuffled. 

Good luck!
