Quiz Retake Options

Hello Captivate Community!

I have a course where the quiz questions are ‘sprinkled’ throughout the course at the end of each section.  If a learner fails the quiz, I’d like the retake button to take them back to ONLY QUIZ QUESTIONS and not through all of the content slides again.  Does anyone know how to program this?  I’m not super savvy with Advanced Actions, so would appreciate step-by-step guidance from a patient coach.

Thank  you!

Amy

Hi all,

Is there a variable that can be used alongside the ‘‘cpQuizInfoAttempts’ is greater than One variable when your course has branching?

On testing this, it works as intended, but if there are questions the user didn’t take within a different branch, these questions still get presented to them on retake.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Lee

There is no exposed system variable detecting if Branch aware has been activated AFAIK.

Thanks for letting me know Lieve.

I was scratching my head trying to work it out, but wasn’t getting anywhere.

Your question was bit off topic for this thread. I’m sorry that I couldn’t help more.

Thank you Lieve-  It would be great to see that as a future post.  I actually ended up using the Module Viewed Variable and then created Advanced Interactions to jump to the next quiz question on the content slide directly after each set of quiz questions.  Thankfully I had a friend who I used to work with who knew how and he created a great step-by-step job aide with instructions for it.  I really needed the step by step and visual aide to understand fully.  Thank you for always being there to share your insights on captivate challenges.

I am busy with a sequence of articles about Quizzing (will probably fill a small book). At this moment I am still with the default slides, not the tweaking. That will be later on. You can have a look at them, they are on the portal. First was about Terminology, second about Submit Process, now busy with Attempts and Scores on question and quiz level.

I have posted the same answer many times. Maybe I will put it in one of my future posts about quizzing (started with a sequence, third is on its way).

There is a quizzing system variable ‘cpQuizInfoAttempts. You can use that variable in a conditional action to be triggered on the first (or each) of the content slides in between quiz slides. If that variable is greater than one, jump to the next quiz slide. Since ou need to identify the slide number or label of that next quiz slide, I would prefer a shared action with the slide number or label as parameter.

Hi Lieve,

If a course is Branch Aware and you want the user to retake the questions on failure, is there another variable that needs to be used along with ‘cpQuizInfoAttempts is greater than 1’?

Currently, if I use this to skip all slides between the question slides as you suggested to Amy, the user also takes the quiz questions they didn’t need to take the first time around as they were on a different branch.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Lee
