Hi... I have a quiz where the user needs to correctly program a medical pump.  Does anyone have a suggestion of how to do this?  Currently, I have an image of  the medical device on 14 slides.  On each slide I have a click box over where the user needs to click.  I have other click boxes over other areas on the pump as well (incorrect areas).  I would like to capture when a user clicks on the wrong area of the picture of the medical device and how many times they click wrong areas before selecting the correct area.  The click boxes aren't working out too well.... any suggestions?  Any assistance will be appreciated.... Thanks, Lillian

I created a very similar interactivity. The learner had to modify a particular format on one of our indicators.

I used the click boxes for mine as well as a lot of different states.

I established a single correct sequence of "button" presses.

If the learner clicked the wrong button, they got a pop up stating that was not the correct choice and I incremented a variable called varMistakes. If they press the correct button, I simply change the state of the image underneath the buttons to reflect what the display would look like if they had actually done it on a real device. Along with the change state I increment another variable called varStep.

That way I can have the button do different things depending on which step in the sequence they are on.

The goal is to finish the exercise with the least number of mistakes. They are encouraged to repeat the exercise until they do it perfect.

One big difference is that my interaction is housed on a single slide.

I realize this is a very broad, "bird's-eye view" of the project but I would not say you are headed in the wrong direction. I am sure there are many ways to go about accomplishing this.

Did you try the hotspot type of quiz slide?

Another approach, since you have only one correct hotspot for each slide, is to stack two click boxes or shape buttons: the bottom one covers the whole slide, and the top one only the correct hotspot. You have to use the Success event for both click boxes. Clicking outside of the correct hotspot on the big click box can be used to track the number of attempts.

I don't understand the requirement 'when the user clicks on the correct spot' ?

Another detail is missing: do you need to report a score to a LMS?

Think of it like dialing a phone number. There is a certain sequence that must be followed to get it right. So if my number is 123-4567 then the first step is to click the number 1 - that is the only correct spot for that step. If you press the 8 first, that would be a mistake in dialing the number. So you essentially have a click area for every possible button press and they have to hit the right one in the right order.

Only the correct button increments to the next step - all other buttons would increment the mistake.

Hi - Thank you so much for your reply.  I will also try this hot spot approach as well as the different states approach with the click boxes.  Yes, I will need to report the  score.  We are using Adobe connect.  Thanks again!

So I guess the tricky part is the reporting. Not sure how this would play out with actual quiz slides.

If I were putting this up for reporting, I would probably put a final slide at the end that can only be reached by completing the task with zero mistakes or with whatever max number is OK with the company. In the LMS I would set the module to be complete only if all slides have been visited.

Then, by virtue of having been marked complete, we know they met the requirement successfully.

Reporting the score is not that much a problem: attach the score only to the top click box. Reporting the number of attempts will have to be stored in user variables.
