Quiz and trigger mess
Mar 20, 2017
On many occasions, customer feedback indicates learners prefer quiz questions throughout the course instead of a long quiz at the end of a course.
So far, so good.
Customer feedback also indicates learners should be able to re-take the quiz on failure without repeating the content. (This seems like a reasonable request.)
To satisfy these two requirements, triggers are needed to skip content to the next question when a learner repeats the quiz. First pass, the question proceeds to the first slide of the next scene. (We use scenes for each topic. Each scene ends with a question.) When a learner repeats the quiz, the question trigger tests a variable indicating a quiz repeat and jumps to the next question (at the end of the next scene).
So far, I think two triggers are necessary on each question layer (the correct and incorrect layers). One to go to the next scene first slide, the other to skip to the next scene last slide which is a question.
Now comes the question's base layer. This layer is used when visiting a completed question for review. I usually just have this layer proceed to the next slide, but there could be other conditions.
To summarize, quiz questions throughout the course supporting a quiz retry seems like a reasonable feature. It should be easier to implement than it is.
Am I missing a better way to do this?
