Quiz button conundrum

Jun 22, 2012 3:58 PM

In my quizzes, I don't want to have learners going back to previous quiz slides until they get to the Results slide. I also want them to answer every question and to not skip any questions.

 

In the Results slide, they can click Review Quiz to go back to previous quiz slides.

 

To prevent learners from navigating back to another quiz question while taking the quiz, I removed the playbar on the quiz slides.

 

I would also like to remove the Skip button, but if I do, with the playbar hidden the learner has no way to navigate forward when they review the quiz. On the other hand, when they are answering the quiz questions, they are able to click the Skip button and not answer the question, even if Incomplete option is turned on.

 

NOTE: This whole problem comes about because of a bug in Captivate. If a learner enters a quiz slide, without answering the question or clicking on Submitt they navigate to the previous slide, then they navigate back to that same quiz slide, Captivate acts as if the learner has already clicked Submit and the learner can no longer answer the question.

    What's your captivate version? All the above mentioned use cases have been addressed in Captivate 6  and how

     

    1. Submit all - a new option which allows users go back and forth and also ensure they answer all the questions

    2. New quiz scope which gives lot of flexibility to Captivate developer

     

    Thanks

    Hi Jay,

     

    I cannot remember if I already suggested to drag the Skip button under the Clear button and rename its text to 'Next' because that is its function while reviewing.

     

    There is a stack order for the buttons on question slides. And the Clear button will not be visible during Review, so the Next button will then be available.


    About stacking order and other question/score slide functionalities:

    Jay,

     

    The stacking order I mention is the original one if you do not uncheck one of the buttons. That order will indeed change if you first unchecked, then check the buttons again. Sorry for the confusion;

    Hi Jay,

    You mention that you removed the playbar from the quiz slides, I'd be really grateful if you could let me know how to do that please? I would like it there for all the slides preceding my quiz.

    Thank you very much

    Sarah

    I'm not Jay, but he will not mind I think

     

    The system variable cpCmndShowPlaybar can be changed. Default value is 1 and the playbar will show. To hide it:

    • on first slide where you want to hide, choose the On Enter action in the Properties panel of the slide, normally it is set to Continue
    • change it to Assign
    • from the dropdown list choose cpCmndShowPlaybar
    • next to With type 0; now the playbar is hidden when entering that slide

     

    To show it again on a later slide, repeat this work flow, but change to the value 1 again.

    Hi Sarah,

     

    You can hide playbar on quiz by going to quiz->preferences->settings and check the option 'Hide playbar on Quiz'.  See screenshot below:
