Multiple Text Entry Freeform Interaction on a Slide?

Hi there,

I am trying to create an interactive freeform assessment on a slide, which consists of three separate text entry boxes. 

Here's what I've done so far: 

- converted slide to freeform text entry

- duplicated text entry box twice to create 3 text entry boxes in total

I would like the learner to be able to enter three separate answers, and have them be evaluated.

Is this at all possible? 

Here's what it all looks like on my screen.

Any help on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

this is a very old thread but hoping someone may be able to help. I have used Mike's suggestion to link the multiple fields to a 'pick one' interaction. This works fine unless the user enters some correct answers in with incorrect ones.

  • If all the answers are wrong it correctly shows the 'try again' layer
  • If all the answers are right it correctly shows 'correct' layer
  • If some answers are right and some are wrong, it shoes the 'invalid answer' layer. 

On another note, I have tried to insert an 'answers' button when the user has tried and failed three times to get it right. This isn't working for some reason. I called the variable 'tryagain' and the trigger is on the 'next' button on the try again layer.

Thanks Wendy! Your TE demo is invaluable, I have saved it and am sure I will refer back to it lots in future, THANK YOU! <3

In regards to my answers button, I want the user to be able to have unlimited attempts, but an 'I'm Stuck' button to reveal the answers if they want to give up after a few goes and can't see where they are going wrong. I have successfully created a hidden button that reveals on a variable before--for some reason this one just doesn't like me!
