Lectora: Randomizing test answers causes lesson too freak out.

Our lesson is pretty much done, but the last thing we decided to try to add on was randomizing the test questions (order they are given)


We simply went onto the test object and selected 'randomly select pages: Pages from Test: 4' We only have 4 questions right now.

We also show the test results at the end (option under TEST -> Results)

When the user gets all the way through the test, the results pop up for a split second, and then it goes right back too the beginning of the test section! Whether or not they pass or fail does not matter.

This gets the user stuck in an endless loop.

Likewise we want to remove the ability to resume in the middle of a Test (User is taking a test.. backs out and then comes back later) we don't want them to be able to do this.

How can I randomize  my test questions while still showing feedback? If we CAN get them to be able to stop in the middle of a test, come back, and have everything function properly than I suppose that is ideal, but we are also okay with just preventing them from resuming in the middle of the test all together.


Randomizing the test questions given has completely broken our lesson test section. Please help!

    From the Results tab of the test, do you have 'Show Test Results' checked?

    Can you share the AWT file?

    I tested a test of 4 randomized questions with Display results and it worked alright. Whatever happens the user should not be directed to the beginning of the test by default. Do you have any "Process test / survey" actions on your results page? Where do you mean to direct the user when the test is done?
