I have a multiple choice question, A and B are correct, C is not.   

 

How do I give custom feedback if they pick A vs B vs C.  I want a custom feedback for each answer.

 

I know how to do this with only one answer correct using states, but the option to change states for each button is taken away.   I do not see the options panel any more.   I am on captivate 11.5.5.676.

correct answers 1 Correct answer

OK, pure coincidence in that case.

I mentioned the system variable you'll need in my first answer: cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice.  After the submit process it will have the value corresponding with the chosen answer. For each of the possbilities you can show a state of the feedback multistate text container.

This blog post has a completely different use case, where I needed the same system variable:

You can still use a multistate object with a state for each possible combination. The answer is stored in the system variable cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice. I do not understand your sentence 'I know how to do this with only one answer correct using states, but the option to change states for each button is taken away.'? Are you not talking about a Multiple Choice Question based on the quizzing master slide, but about a custom question?

This is what my screen looks like for a single answer multiple choice question (This is a multiple choice question not custom question)

As soon as I change it to multiple answers, this option goes away, this is the same question with the multiple answers toggled on and off.  There is no options panel to change the state of.

The toggle I am changing, check marked below.

How do I determine the correct variable for each answer on this page?   I am ok writing the advanced actions to get what I need if I know the variable names.

OK, you posted something similar already, right?

You mean that you cannot use the Advanced Answer option in this case, which is not really what is written in your question. The answer in the other thread given by both Rod and me was that you don't have the Advanced Answer option for a MCQ with multiple correct answers, nor for any other type of question. It only exists for MCQ with one correct answer.

It can be done here, but you'll need to be comfortable with advanced/shared actions. Are you?

Yes I have done them before, I just do not know how to select the correct variable name.  I do not remember posting something similar to this?
