Quiz : Question pools and custom messages for quiz review

Hi all,

I'm trying to build a quiz that should contain 20 questions and I have 4 modules and in each module I have 10 questions, so the idea is to present randomly 5 questions form each module to the learner.

I've imported the questions with GIFT format in 4 pools, I used "Random question" to use 5 questions from each pool, each time when the learner takest he quiz, all works fine.

 

And want to put custom messages (Only one texte) in review mode for each question, I tried to do that with the advanced action using the system variable "cpInReviewMode"

If "cpInReviewMode" is equale to 1
Action Show text1
Show text2
etc
Else Show text1
Show text2
etc

And when I try to select the text elements, all what I have in the drop down menu are the elements that are on the Welcome slide and the results slide...but not the text elements that I have on the question slides.

Could someone help me to figure it out please ?

I wrote out the blog, offering a shared action and a step-by-step workflow. It is uploaded to the eLearning portal, hope it will be approved tomorrow, will let you know. I may also post it on my personal blog, but that takes a little bit different approach. 

Thanks for your patience.

Moderation seems to be delayed. I will recreate the post on my personal blog. Here is a link to the example project which uses 3 random questions from a pool with 8 questions and will show a Review message when in R

Not sure to understand your workflow.

Review mode will not show any message, since the design has changed: it only shows the indicators. The Review area is only used for questions that were skipped.

This means that if you want to add textual message you need to add a text which is hidden when not in Preview mode.

However you use two texts? What is the difference between both?

 

Since this is about random questions, the advanced action needs to be triggered on all questions in the question pool. 

You are correct: it is impossible to add acustom item (like a text) and show/hide the item, when you are in a pool. 

I may have a workaround, but never post something without double-checking my intuition. If you can spare some patience, will try it out and post another blog post. Although I have over 30 blogs about tweaking quizzes, if my memory is correct, this use case is not yet included.

In a normal quiz, I can add in each question slide a text caption with a feedback and of course I hide them in normal output. And with an advanced action that I will set in every slide "On enter" I will show/hide these text caption depending if the use is in normal quiz mode or Quiz review

 

If cpInReviewMode is equal to 1  (Meaninig that the user is quiz reviw)

Action : Show text captions (I can find all the names of the text captions in the drop menu)

 

But with the pool I don't find the text captions that i've added in the drop down menu, in the line [Action : show ] I find only the elements of the welcome and the result slides

The individual feedback message in normal mode is an embedded object: Failure and Success message can be edited on each slide. However that is impossiblbe - as I wrote -  for a Review messages since it doesn't exist anymore.  There you need a custom text container if you need such a Review message.

If this was not a random quiz slide, you could have added a conditional action triggered On Enter like this:

IF cpInReviewMode is equal to 1

    Show Tx_Review

ELSE

    Hide Tx_Review

 

The normal Success/Failure messages can still be shown in a Random question slide, if you edit all of the min the question pool. You can add an advanced action On Enter for each question in a pool but that action CANNOT address custom objects.  Sorry to repeat, but you didn't seem to understand what I wrote before.

 

You are not interested in a workaround? OK, will focus on my normal work.
