Quiz questions unavailable for re-entry/retry

Mar 08, 2019

Hi all,

I'm unable to re-enter quiz answers when I navigate back to the quiz page:

  • when I successfully answer the question (and 'pass') and navigate back to the quiz page (A user might decide to do the module (scene) again.)
  • when I answer the question incorrectly (and 'fail') and click on a button that I created that jumps back to the quiz page.

Having read a bunch of posts here I can't figure out what's happening.  

I set the slide properties to 'reset to initial state'.

Any help appreciated.

Thank you Phil and Noel, much appreciated.

I'm either missing something or didn't explain my issue well.

User should have unlimited tries when they click on a button that I created (i.e. I'm not using Storyline360's built-in 'retry' functionality.)

As you suggested

  • I defined a variable called 'attempts' with a default value of zero
  • As nothing ever gets added to 'attempts' variable, it will always be zero.  
  • Despite this, I set up a trigger as per your attached pic.

As I expected, this does not change anything as I have not put in any logic (e.g. to 'reset to initial state' based on the variable.  To that extent, of course, the variable has no function.

I set the quiz page to 'Reset to initial state' when revisiting, yet it seems to ignore that?

So when you have these slides as part of a bigger project it stops working? The functionality  on the version I uploaded works fine even if you publish the project.  

There is no reason I can think of that would stop this quiz question and the results slide from working in a larger project, unless you are adding more quiz questions in - in which case there might need to be changes made to those quiz questions. If you have this scene as is copied into a larger project this part should still work. As always, it's hard to determine what the problem might be without looking at the project and I appreciate it's not always possible to upload whole projects.
