Retrying Quiz from Question Bank

Feb 12, 2018

Hi All,


I have a 10 question quiz that draws randomly from a bank of 100 questions. If the user re-tries the quiz, they are set the same set of 10 questions. Is there a way to do it where it draws 10 new questions?

Hi Nathan:

There is a way you can do this with variables and triggers. It's a bit tedious, but works.  (better on less questions obviously)

1) Create a T/F variable for each question. default False  (yes for each question - that's the tedious part)

on each question slide  (this is also tedious, but works)
2) Set the (that question's) variable to be True when the user clicks Submit on a question
3) Check as the timeline starts on a questions slide if the variable is True, if it is, jump to the next question.

By doing this you could "retry" the quiz 10 times with never the same question coming up. (# of total questions / # of questions randomly drawn)

If this doesn't make sense, feel free to reach out.  Happy to run through it with you.

Hello Jennifer and welcome to E-Learning Heroes. 😊

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you are wanting for your project.

I just noticed that my colleague Katie helped you here, but I had a different option that I thought of.

Have you considered navigating back to the questions that the user got incorrect vs. the entire quiz? Then they could re-visit the questions that they missed:
