Bringing in radio button answers from two separate slides into one

Hi, I am creating an eLearning where the participant answers 8 multiple choice questions with radio buttons on two separate slides.  The 8 questions are the exact same for both slides but they are to look at it from a different perspective when they answer the second time.  Is there a way to bring all of their selected answers from the first two slides to a third slide that shows the results side by side?

Hi Jerry -

Funny... I answered a similar question yesterday. It's a bit of work, but I think you can do this by setting a variable each time the learner makes a selection on the first two slides, and then retrieve those variables on the third Summary page. For example:

  • Create a (empty) variable that will correspond to each question on each of the first two slides, something like Slide1Q1Answer, Slide1Q2Answer... and so on.
  • For each radio button in each question, add a trigger to set the variable (On Click) for that slide to the value of the answer that is clicked. If they selected the choice "Peanut Butter" on the first question slide then that radio button sets the variable Slide1Q1Answer to "Peanut Butter". If they change their mind and select the choice "Jelly" then that radio button sets the variable Slide1Q1Answer to "Jelly".
  • Do that for all answer objects on all question slides.
  • On your Summary page, set up text fields with the variables; %Slide1Q1Answer%, and so on to retrieve the values of all of the variables.

If I understand what you are trying to do, then that should work.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jerry. Here is a link to a tutorial on variables:

https://community.articulate.com/series/4/articles/adding-variables#adding

Adding the variables is really simple. For what you need to do, you only need the first section (Adding Variables) in the link above. The rest is great-to-know information as you develop your Storyline skills.

And here is a link to a lot of Storyline tutorials - keeping this link handy makes it easier to find the right tutorial for almost anything:

Let me know if you have any questions on any of it.

Chris
