Skip button operation issue

Apr 11, 2012 9:28 AM

I have Quiz slides with the Skip button showing. My Quiz is set to "Answer All" and allowing to Go back. All my Quiz slides are set to 3 attempts for multiple-choice, and 2 for True-false.

When I first enter a Quiz slide, the Skip button doesn't work (as it should be), so I can only answer and Submit. But if I submit the wrong answer, I can click on the skip button and will take me to the next slide. If I didn't change the previous answer, then the wrong answer will be summited by just clicking Skip.


How can make sure that Skip doesn't work for all the max attempts set for a question?  I'm using skip as a "Next" button in case I go back after I submitted a question and must provide a way to go to the Next slide.

    I would recommend you use a widget to hide the Skip button when doing the Quiz and only show it when Review Quiz has been invoked by the user. (Send me a private message with your email address and I will send you the widget file.)


    That's what I do in all my quizzes.  Your users can still move to the next question after exhausting their allowed attempts by clicking anywhere on screen.  That's how Captivate quiz slides work.  You don't actually require the Skip button to move forward after Submitting a correct answer or exhausting all allowed attempts.

    You're allowing backward movement in a quiz.  My advice to you is to turn off backward movement via Quiz Settings.  It causes too many issues.


    The widget is designed to work in Quiz Review only. So it's not going to hide anything until then.

    You misunderstood me.  Your previous post had asked what you were doing wrong.  And I answered that you were allowing backward movement in the quiz.  What I meant was that this was your mistake.


    I find that only allowing users to go forward from one question to the next once they enter the quiz eliminates many potential issues.


    So don't worry about trying to achieve it with Advanced Actions or any other method.  Just turn off backward movement in quiz settings, and enjoy.

    No.  I've not seen the other issue.  PLease mark this current issue as answered.
