Quiz Review Problem!

Mar 30, 2017

Hello Amazing Designers! 

I am looking for some super assistance please!  I have a rather large 'Re-Certification Quiz" of 80+ questions, that are broken out by category into 10 scenes.   At the end of each scene the learner ends up back at the starting point, where they can click on the next category to explore. 

Starting Point

After going through all 10 scenes and answering all the questions, the learner is prompted to click on a button on get their Results/score.   The Results slide works fine but when using the Review Quiz functionality, they only able to the questions f rom the first scene vs. all of the questions.


I read a couple articles and reviewed a tutorial about setting up a variable on the Review Quiz button I am unsure where to add that Trigger to jump to the next scene/question would be.  Does this make sense to anyone?  Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,

Hey Sylvia!

Since you've got quiz questions spread out over multiple scenes, check out this thread where Nicole shares a handy solution:

Here's how you can accomplish what you're trying to achieve:

  • On the last question in Scene 1, click the Slide Properties button in the Layers pane. (the little gear icon)
  • Select the option for Next button to appear. (Before this, it should only have Submit button selected)
  • This will automatically create a Trigger to 'Jump to next slide when next button is clicked'. in the Triggers pane.
  • Change the link from next slide, to the next question in the next scene.
  • Then you have to copy the trigger you just created, go back into slide properties and Uncheck the Next button. (This will remove the trigger you just created), but then you can paste it back.

Voila. That's how you get the Next button to link to a specific slide when you revisit the Question slide during the review.

I hope that helps!

Hi Sylvia,

The review should be taking you back through the questions that are tracked by the results slide - so if you're using individual results slides to track separate scenes or question banks, that could be a part of the odd behavior you're seeing. Are you able to share a copy of your .story file here with the community? That way folks can get a look at what you're working with and offer ideas and advice directly on your file. Just use the "add attachment" button to share here.

Hi again!  I am encountering another issue that I cannot figure out...  part of the functionality I wanted was to not allow the Learner to click on the "Score Button" until they had completed all of the categories.  I set up the 'Score Button' with a trigger to disable the state at the start of the timeline and then change to normal state after each of the category images were visited.  Finally a trigger to jump to a new Results scene which would calculate the score, etc.  That does not seem to work. 

Any ideas on why or problems with my logic? 

Thanks in advance!

Hey Sylvia!

Try this trigger instead:

Jump to slide 4 Results when the user clicks the Score button on condition that the state of all of [insert categories] are visited.

With that trigger, if the learner clicks on the score button before all of the categories are visited, nothing will happen, and they'll stay on the current slide.

Keep me posted!

Oh Alyssa!  The jump to slide works except now, when the learner gets to the last category, the trigger jumps before the learner had gone through the question set for that last category.  This is happening because, the visited state triggers immediately.  So I maybe need a 'selected' state?  When/what does the 'selected' state trigger or when should that be used??

Hi Sylvia,

Great question about the visited state vs. the selected state. Here's the difference:

  • The selected state is how an object appears when it has been clicked. It's generally used to indicate that a user has chosen the object.
  • The visited state is how an object appears after it has been clicked and provide a visual indicator of the objects that have already been clicked when users revisit the same slide.

It sounds like you need more control of when the user can jump to the results slide, correct? You want the user to jump to the result slide when they click on the "My Score" button only if the other content is already visited. Try this trigger, and let me know if it works better.
