Reset/Restart Button or script

Apr 11, 2012 2:47 AM

Hi there, Martin here again with another Captivate 5 questinon

Im struggling with my new project again. I prepared some training mode projecst for my colleagues...there are some slides with clickboxes which are included in Quiz (awarded with some points).

I need to, somehow, after finishing whole project (at the end there is reporting slide from Quiz with max points, acuracy etc) add button or script to restart project (erase points and reset clickboxes settings) for user to be able to take whole training project again.

Can you help me? (standard quiz "retake button" doesnt work)


Thanks, Martin

    Martin,  can you be a little clearer about why you believe the Retake Quiz button is not working?


    Are you saying that clicking Retake Quiz does NOT take you back to the first interactive object, or does not erase the user's score so far?

    You mention that you have added the Retake Quiz button to the Quiz Results slide, but how many attempts have you allowed for the overall Quiz?  Did you add the Retake Button by setting the Allow User to multiple attempts on the Quiz: Pass Fail dialog screen and then selecting Show Retake Button?  Or are you confusing the Retake Quiz  button with the Review Quiz button?  The names are very similar and easily mistaken at first glance.


    If you have your quiz set to only one attempt (the default) it will not allow you to change the score even if you DO have the buttons set to allow 3 attempts.

    The Retake Quiz button will only appear on the Quiz Results slide under certain circumstances.


    First of all you have to allow multiple attempts on the quiz, otherwise you don't get the option in Quiz Preferences to add the Retake button.


    Then your user must score less than 100%, must still have remaining attempts allowed, and has NOT used the Review Quiz button.


    My question is:  Why would you want the user to retake a quiz that they had already passed at 100%?  What is the purpose of that?

    Sounds like you need to just relaunch the module again then.  That will clear all scores and allow your users to reattempt or practice the task.  An easy way to do this is to set the Project End option to launch URL and point it to the URL of the same module.

    If you test this out by publishing to your local hard drive, just make sure that the publish folder location is a trusted location in your Flash Global Security settings, otherwise it won't work.  It could also get you into trouble if you happen to be serving this content from an LMS, but since you mentioned there was no scoring involved, I'm assuming that's not the case.
