Hi Wendy,

Thank you, this helps a lot.

Could you please explain how on the 2nd slide you created the variables: TE_2 and TE_3 and also how you created the conditions that are set to "dog", "hound", etc. When I tried to add a condition, it would not allow me to type in any words and it did not show the possible answers that could be selected.

Thank you

Hi Cara

sure.

I created two T/F variables - named them TE_2 / TE_3 to match the text entry variable field but you could call them what you want.

The triggers conditions for TE_2 and TE_3 were created as follows

choose the text entry field i.e. text entry 2, set ignore case as you want SL to evaluate what the user enters 

  • dog, DOG, or Dog
  • hound, HOUND or Hound
  • bark, BARK or Bark

You are typing the words 'dog', 'hound', 'bark' into the trigger conditions.

 

Note: These slides use the Freeform Pick One slide type to evaluate not the Graded Fill-in-the-Blank or Freeform Text Entry slide types.

Hope that helps

Hi Wendy,

Thank you very much. I have set the variables and triggers.

How does it work by having the slide as a pick one slide in order to be graded? Can I set any object on my slide as the object to be picked and then just have the slide work according to the triggers I have set within the text entries? Will the "pick one object" not mess with the results?

Hello Wendy,

Hope you are well.

I am creating another quiz with 2 questions which have 3 text entries (only one correct answer per entry). I have tried creating each question in a different method - one without true/false variables and one with them. When I submit the first question it says that the answer is invalid and nothing happens when I submit the second question. I'm not sure what I am missing to make these work. Would you be able to take a look at them and advise if I am doing something wrong?

Thank you,

Cara

Hey Cara

in the first question - can the user answer cat, dog, fish in any order? not sure I understand what you mean by 'only one correct answer per entry'.  How does the user know there will be a specific order

in the second question about fruit, the answers are features, achievement, benefits?

Hi Wendy,

Sorry, the second set of triggers are the actual answers. I changed them to "dog" etc. before I uploaded the file, but did not change them in the incorrect state trigger.

The answers are the second set. I have both sets as the same answers on my side (in the original storyfile), but I still get an "invalid answer" message when I preview the slide and type in the correct answers.

Hi Cara

Trigger order is important - for the first quiz question it is trigger order...you need to have the submit interaction trigger as the last trigger once it has checked the change of states to the buttons, I suspect that might be the issue for the second question as well.

Make the changes and let me know how you go.

Hi Cara for question 2

trigger order again and you didn't have anything selected in the form view, Here is some information about trigger order that may help you. In this example because we are using the T/F variable condition in the change state trigger, that T/F variable must be set first - see order of triggers below.
