Multiple Fill in the blank questions for one quiz question?

sconnellsconnell Community Member Posts: 130
Hello folks,



I am pretty certain that I already know the answer but...



I have a question that requires more than one fill in the blank. However, Lectora treats each fill in the blank as a separate question.



As a result, the Lectora generated test summary labels each as a separate question number. This is potentially confusing to the learner!



My options are:

1. Don't put multiple fill in the blank questions in a single question.

Not ideal!

2. Use a customized test results page.

Not ideal because every time any of the questions change, the results page needs to be regenerated

and re-customized.

3. Don't display a test results page.

Likely, the option I would ultimately choose.



Are there any other options available?



Is there a way to control/change the question number label? (e.g. Results for question 1 would appear as Question 1a, 1b, etc.)



Thank you,

Comments

    Hi dfleary,



    I cannot seem to get this working. I set my Feedbacks in the question settings. But it dont appear when I clicked submit.



    As for OnMClk ModVAR Question 1 Add comma space, do i put in , then a space or i have to type in comma space??



    Look forward to your reply. Thanks.

    Create your FITB as usual, including feedback if you want it. Set the correct answer to be the desired entry for all three fields separated by a comma. For example:



    "This is the text for the Fill-In-The-Blank question. This question has three blanks. The correct answer is: one, two, three ... in any order."



    Possible correct answers:

    one, two, three

    one, three, two

    two, three, one

    two, one, three

    three, one, two

    three, two, one



    Make the entry field for the question NOT Initially Visible. (So the student will never see or be able to enter it.)



    Next, add three entry field form objects to your page.



    Finally, add a "Submit" or "Check Answer" button to the page with the following actions:



    OnMClk Reset Question 1

    OnMClk ModVAR Question 1 Set VAR(Entry_0001)

    OnMClk ModVAR Question 1 Add comma space

    OnMClk ModVAR Question 1 Add VAR(Entry_0002)

    OnMClk ModVAR Question 1 Add comma space

    OnMClk ModVAR Question 1 Add VAR(Entry_0003)

    OnMClk Process Question 1



    See attached Library Object. Hope this helps.

    This is a V11 update:



    Since you cannot control Attempts on the entry fields, the easiest way to control attempts in this type of scenario is to hide the Submit button. On the Attempts tab of the question, select "Enable Feedback for Maximum Attempts". As the feedback action, choose to Hide the Submit button.

    Note: With V11 this is now even easier! Take advantage of the Advanced Text Editor dialog to string together the variables, commas, and spaces for all three entry fields:



    OnMClk Reset Question 1

    OnMClk Change Contents Question 1

    - - Value: Set Text

    - - Text: VAR(Entry_0001), VAR(Entry_0002), VAR(Entry_0003)

    OnMClk Process Question 1

    I have used this method to successfully display multiple blanks but when I use publish it in Chrome the blanks move over the following words in the sentence. It works fine in IE. I've tried creating more space around them but it doesn't make any difference. Can anyone help with this please?



    Thanks
