Quiz slides sometime shows Prev/Next and not Submit

Apr 15, 2015

Hi, folks.

This is a sporadic problem. I have double-checked the quiz coding in SL2, and the slides are correctly coded. Yet sometimes when a user accesses the course, the slide will not give a Submit button, but only give the Prev/Next choices.

Any hints on how to reliably show the quiz are appreciated! Cheers.

This is currently happening to me in Storyline 360. 
Using the Free-Form choose one slide type. 
I have a one question quiz that I am using to manage a compliance required affirmation statement. 

I am including a video of what is happening, but here is a summary:
The learner can choose "yes" "no" or "not" now and select the "submit" button. 
If they choose no or not now, they are given the option to go back to the question by clicking a "go back" button on the screen. 
when they go back to the question, the submit button is gone and "next" and "previous" buttons are in place. 

The next button has the same functionality as the submit button (it submits the response) if the learner selects an answer on the slide. 
If the learner does not make a selection, the next button takes them to the response page for their previous answer. 

If the learner selects "previous" it goes back the response page for their previous answer. 
HOWEVER, if the learner selects the "go back" button here, it jumps to the question page WITH THE SUBMIT BUTTON BACK IN PLACE (Like it should look). 

I am attaching the video (because this is an internal initiative, I changed the wording. But the behavior is the same) .

Hi James,

I appreciate you sharing what you are currently experiencing with your course and the video as well.

I want to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening with your permission. You can share it privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when troubleshooting is complete.
