I have built quiz questions into the presentation. When you get to the first
quiz question and you want to review material before answering quiz question,
Captivate 5 allows you to move backwards; however when I come back to the question to answer it is says:"you did not answer the question completely" and it will not allow you to select an answer.
I checked my preferences and I do have "allow backward movement selected. Just wondering if anyone out there knows what I am doing wrong?
Though it might at first seem confusing, there is a reason behind this behaviour. Captivate has what is known as a Quiz Scope that begins with the first scored object and ends at the Quiz Results slide.
If Allow Backward Movement is not selected, once you enter the quiz scope you cannot go to any slide before it. Allowing backward movement does permit you to leave the quiz scope, but as you have found, it also means that any quiz questions you have already visited will be locked. If you didn't give an answer while on the slide, you're question is locked as not having been answered.
The solution to your problem is to extend the quiz scope to encompass all slides containing information that your course participant might want to view. You can do this by placing a button or clickbox on an earlier slide in your project. Set it to Report to Quiz with a score. Now your quiz scope begins with this interactive object, not at the first quiz question.
I have a question about the suggestion offered to expand the scope of the quiz. I am trying to use this solution by making the Start button at the beginning of the tutorial a part of the quiz, but the problem is that when the user clicks Review Quiz, he is sent to the start of the quiz. I'm worried that it will be confusing for the user and he will think he is starting the entire tutorial over and won't know to simply click the forward button on the playbar. Is there any way to make the Start button not show up in the quiz review?
Here's what I would do:
So what happens here is that the first time your users see the opening slide they only see the button to View Content. But once they get to the Quiz Results slide and click the Retake Quiz button they are jumped back to the opening slide (because the View Content button is scored and therefore part of the quiz) but now they have the extra option of jumping straight to the first quiz question.
I should mention that having the Go to Quiz option visible by default on opening slides would be a lot simpler and easier (because it obviates the need for variables and AAs). It also gives learners that already know the content, or that have done the module previously, the opportunity to skip straight to the quiz. But if you wanted to force users to view content before doing the quiz, the above solution is one way to do it.
Thanks RodWard, that worked perfectly!
Hi Rod - I hope you do not mind me replying to your last post again. I took your suggestion and it works wonderful. My question is now, is there a way to make it not 'count' that first slide in the quiz numbers? Meaning when I publish the file and our users get to the quiz portion that has 15 questions, they are actually starting with question 2 instead of 1 because Captivate is counting that first slide as 1 even though technically it is not a quiz question.
I am not sure I ever got a response to this question I posted and I am encountering the same issue again.

Double posting, answered in the other thread,
Wish I knew where that thread was.
This thread is from 2011. Please start a new thread, mentioning your problem. It is very improbable that the answer would be the same after so many versions.
