Multiple hotspots: multiple credit to single click

I am building a quiz slide using click boxes to allow for credit for each correct clickbox chosen. On the slide, there is a chance the person can click more than one area for the same observation. I can't use one click box to cover the entire area, I need to use multiple click boxes. Each click box is worth one point. I want them to get the credit for all the clickboxes for that area, when they click just one of them. Is this possible?

I just pop in with a possible alternative workflow. Beware: I love the CpExtra widget and it has so many features (which Rod is not mentioning) to fill in Captivate lacks.

If I understand your question correctly, you want a custom scored slide where it is sufficient to click one of the click boxes to get the full score for the slide. This would be my approach:

  • Do not attach a score to the click boxes.
  • Create a Next button which you hide On Enter for the slide.
  • Attach the full score for the slid

By default Captivate doesn't provide a solution to do what you want because it requires dynamic modification of the quiz scoring variables.  Basically you need the user to be awarded points for objects even though they were NOT clicked.

 

If your JavaScript skills are good enough you would be able to program your own solution.  But if not, the CpExtra HTML5 widget for Captivate does provide another way to modify quiz score variables using Advanced Actions in combination with the xcmndscore command variable.

However, please note that this widget is not free and it is only for Captivate version 2019 and some earlier versions.

  • Attach the full score for the slide to that Next button.
  • The action for all the Click boxes should be 'Show Next Button'. Deactivate the option 'Continue playing th project' or make sure to shorten the Click box timelines so that the pausing point of the Next button is after the end of the Click box timelines.

You're welcome.

But definitely have a look at that widget, because it is incredible what it makes possible in Captivate without needing any programming skills.

Thank you so much! I don't think I will be using the widget. But it is good to know that there are advanced options available for Captivate 2019.
