Quiz setting question

I apologize for the vague topic heading.

I have ten questions.  I would like the slides to display a check mark (for right) and and "x" (for wrong)...but to have those answer icon accumulate progressively as they advanced through the quiz slides. 

So, if they answer the first question right, I would like a check mark to display on screen.  If they answer the first five right, I would like the slide to display all five checkmarks.  However, if they answer the first two right, and the next two wrong, I would like the quiz to be able to display that as well.  

I hope I didn't confuse you.

Any simple way to do this?

Hi Jay,

I attach a working example of what you are trying to achieve. I have only used 3 questions but the principle will be the same for your 10 questions.

To briefly explain the functionality:

  • I have created a True/False variable for each question and set the defult value to False.
  • I have added 3 basic shapes at the bottom to represent each question and created a 'correct' and 'incorrect' state for each
  • On the Q1 slide, I have added a trigger to the CORRECT layer to adjust the "Q1" variable to True when the timeline of the layer starts
  • On the base layer of Q2, I have added 2 triggers that change the state of the shape that represents Q1 to correct on condition that the variable "Q1" equals True and incorrect on condition that the same variable equals False
  • On the CORRECT layer of Q2 I have added a trigger to adjust the "Q2" variable to True when the timeline of the layer starts
  • On the base layer of Q3, I have added 2 triggers that change the state of the shape that represents Q1 to correct on condition that the variable "Q1" equals True and incorrect on condition that the same variable equals False - these have been duplicated to change the state of the shape that represents Q2 aswell
  • On the CORRECT layer of Q3 I have added a trigger to adjust the "Q3" variable to True when the timeline of the layer starts
  • On the 'How did you do?' slide (which represents a results slide), I have triggers that change the states of all 3 shapes that represent each question depending on the value of their respective question variable
  • I have also added a [Retry] button that allows the user to retake the test and I have added triggers to reset each of the 3 variables. If you want to include this functionality, you will need to ensure that these triggers are above the trigger that jumps back to the first question slide - SL execute triggers from top to bottom, so you want the variables to be reset first

I hope I haven't confused you, but hopefully the attached will make the above clearer
