Prevent users skipping questions

Feb 27, 2015

Can anyone please remind me how to prevent a user skipping a question on a quiz by pressing the built in navigation next button? Currently I can press the next button on my quiz question pages and skip past them all - I want the learner to have to answer the question before the page moves on.

Thanks, Louise

One of the things I've done before is setting the submit button to disabled and the next button hidden for the start of each question. Then setting up a trigger with a state event that activates the submit button only when any of the choices are selected.

Instead of making the continue button show with feedback, I make my feedback layers hide the submit button and show the next button. 

Takes a little bit of setup but once you've got it set, copying and pasting the question makes replicating your package pretty fast. Since I like my question slide layouts with the stem on the left and choices on the right, I can't really use the slide masters and new slide wizard to create the question layouts I want. So copy and paste questions is what I end up with:)
