Quiz: Advance to light at end of tunnel

Hi community,

I want to build a quiz in which we see Fred, a sad person, in a dark tunnel. The challenge is "Can you help Fred reach the light at the end of the tunnel?"

How it works:

Learners see a list of Fred's feelings on the side of the screen (sad, lonely, etc.) and a list of actions they can take to dissolve the feelings. Example: If they drag "invite fred to lunch" and drop to "lonely", then they will see Fred advance one step closer to the light at the end of the tunnel.

The 2 images I'm using are simple:  1) A dark tunnel with light at the end. 2) Silhouette of Fred.   I increase the size of the tunnel image at each correct answer to give the impression that Fred is getting closer to the light.

My question is: What's the best way to make this work in a drag and drop quiz?  Should I use layers or states? Any other suggestions.

Thank you. :-)

Hi Selina, it sounds like a great quiz. You can use states and number variables. Add one to the variable when a pair is matching and then change the tunnel image to next state when variable changes on the condition of a certain value. So you will have Fred close to the light after each matching. Hope this helps.

Hi Joanne / Community,

I'm working on Joanne's suggestion but there's something not right. I didnt provide enough détails first time around so here goes:

• My quiz has 5 drag and drop questions.
• To speed up, I created a drag and drop slide as a Template for each question, then copied it 5 times.
• The D&D template slide has 4 statements (2 good, 2 bad) to be dropped on 2 zones (good zone or bad zone).
• Upon submission of each question, the score increases by 20% if they drag/drop to correct zones.
• The template slide also has an image of a man in a tunnel. I created 6 states for the image to represent him getting 5 times closer to the tunnel exit. (Tunnel 0% is Normal state, then Tunnel 10-20-30-40-50% for the remaining 5 states.
• The image states SHOULD change as learners proceed through the 5 questions based on the score (from 0% through to 100%). Trigger = Change state of image Tunnel 0% to Tunnel 20% if score = 20%, 30% etc.).

In testing, the score increases on each slide but the image states don't change. What are the best triggers, variables and conditions to use on the slides to cater to the various situations as they proceed through the questions? For example:

• If learner earns 20% on question 1, what must I do to make the state of the image be Tunnel 20% as soon as they arrive on question 2 (and subsequent questions)?
• If learner arrives at question 4 and score is only 20%, how do I ensure Tunnel_20% state is picked up?

Anyone got any insight - it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you community.

Hi Selina! Would you be able to share the .story file you are working on? That may allow the community to better assist you in your design.

Hi Leslie,

I started trying out different approaches with the questions.
For Question 1 the feedback is given on 2 different slides.
For Questions 2-5 the feedback is given on layers.
Not sure which is the best way to show the feedback given that states need to change. Would appreciate your advice on this aspect also.

Thanks very much.

Hi Selina!

That did not work either. If you wish to share privately and not via the forums here, you will need to submit privately here.

Hi Selina, sure you can do feedback slides on different slides or layers, it will work if you do it right. But in your case, I will suggest using Master slides to do the trick and use default layers for feedback(Feedback Master). It will be the easiest way for your case and can also minimize the size of your file. Take a look on the attachment to see if this is what you want.

Hi Selina!

Looks like Joanne was able to pop in and assist you here. Just let us know if you need further assistance.

Thanks Joanne.

Thank you very much Joanne. This is exactly what I want.

Fantastic! :-)
