Show Correct Answer - Quiz function on Storyline

Hi there,

I've used the build in quiz feature in Storyline to develop self test quizzes (drag and drop / multiple choice and mix and match). 

I want to give the learners two attempts and if they don't get the correct answer by the second attempt I would like the correct answer to show automatically.

Is this possible within storyline (preferably) or within quizmaker?

Hi Lorr

not sure if this is what you mean - I've used the default correct/incorrect/try again layers and added a statement on the incorrect layer to say: The correct response is blah blah.

If this isn't what you are after, perhaps you can share your .story file as it's easier to offer a solution if we can work with your specific setup. Just use the grey 'add attachment' button at the bottom of the post to upload.

See attached - hope this helps.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks a million for taking the time to reply.

I've done what you suggested for the multiple choice and true/false questions but for the mix and match and drag and drop its very difficult to do this. Ideally I would love for the correct answer to just pop up i.e. the correct drag and drop solution for example. It would be great if it was possible :-)

Thanks again,

Hi team. We are looking for the same thing, but we are wanting it to be fully automated and display friendly. For example, similar to the way Rise will display which answer is correct immediately when the learner clicks on the wrong answer. Is this possible? Well, I know it's possible with a software tweak. But is there any functionality for this yet?

I work with Tanner. What we are looking for is an easy way to display the correct answer on the incorrect layer. Ideally this would be in the form of a system variable so it is linked to what we specify is the correct answer on the Form View.

In Rise it is made as simple as a click of a setting to say "Show correct answer". We want something similar to that in Storyline. Do you know what variable is tied to the correct answer choice so some JavaScript could be written to automate this? Or can this be an official feature request? Or do you know some way to do that out of the box?

Thank you.

Hi Eric! Thanks for that context. 

While you can manually add the correct answer to the incorrect feedback layer on each quiz slide, Storyline doesn't have a built-in feature that will automatically display the correct answer. I think that's a really cool idea though, and it would make an excellent feature request. 

You can, however, automatically display the correct answer during Quiz Review. Simply enable that setting on the 'Review Results' trigger.

Hi there. I was reviewing this thread for an answer to this very question. Through a lot of trial and error, I think I found a simple solution to this. I added a green rectangle around the correct answer(s) to my Incorrect slide layer, and then I added a trigger to "Show layer Incorrect when the state of (whichever Rectangles are correct)  is normal.
