Hi - I'm looking for a way where the user can input an answer to an open question, where there could be any number of right answers, then the user can see what they input immediately and they also have a way to go back at any point and see what they input.

 

Example: "What are your best hopes for this course?"

Sample answers: to learn what active listening is, to find out the steps to doing it, and achieve advanced beginner level within 2 weeks.

 

I tried knowledge checks but those assume a right or wrong answer. Maybe an object that returns something? But how would they go back later, like after the module and see what they input? Like looking at their original goals, and seeing how close they came to those goals.

 

Thanks for your suggestions,

Kelly

You can just use a normal Text Entry Box.  The values input by the user are immediately written to the user variable associated with the TEB field.  You can then display this variable value later by inserting the variable into another text box or Smart Shape,

Both Text Entry Box and Scrolling Text Interaction can have an associated variable. Once that variable has a value from user input, you can show that value by inserting the varialbe using the X button in the Character part of a Text Caption or a Shape used as text container.
