Captivate 2019 – 11.5.1.499

I am trying something and I am fairly certain it’s not possible, but perhaps someone has a solution. I never built this kind of project before.

I have a large project.  It has multiple sections each with its own quiz. 10 sections, each section as 3 quiz slides.  When the learner completes a section, on the last quiz slide of the section,  a smart shape appears with their score (created using custom variables and advanced actions), along with a start over button.

(Note that this is all option for the learner, it’s a study tool, not a true quiz/test.  It doesn’t report to any LMS.)

I am trying to get that start over button to reset the quiz, so the learner can take that section over if they want, and ultimately, if they go to another section, the quiz is resets too.   There does not seem to be any advance action that can do this. I wrote a simple javascript line to reset $$cpQuizInfoAttempts$$ to 0, thinking that may do something. It didn’t .

I am coming to the conclusion that the only way would be to use the retake button on the ultimate review slide, which prevents my sectional idea, or create slides using traditional shapes/buttons/etc with advanced actions/variables.

Thanks

I have a strange feeling that I already answered this question elsewhere, but cannot find the thread.

First of all: system quizzing variables are read only, which means you cannot change their value.

You really want scored Knowledge slides. There are two possible ways: adding score to KC slides or continuing on your present setup with regular quiz slides.

Resetting all answers in a quiz is easy: set the Attempts on Quiz level pretty high. Normally you would use the Retake button on the score slide, but you may not know another trick. If you navigate to the score slide without really visiting it (which is perfectly possible with and advanced action) and navigate to another part within the quiz scope all answers of all the question slides are reset. Since you have the results of each partial quiz stored in user variables (which you still can show later on), that shouldn’t be a problem.
