7 Steps to Create Custom Invalid Answer Pop-ups in Articulate Storyline

Welcome to today’s blog post.

We can develop a matching assessment very quickly and easily, using Articulate Storyline because all layers and feedback content is generated by default.

In a matching assessment, when the learner clicks the next button without completing the activity, an Invalid Answer window pop-up as shown below.

Invalid Answer

One of our clients asked us to change the default text in the pop-up. There is no option available in Storyline to change that text. But, we can do it by using the triggers and layers in Storyline.

Here, I would like to share how to change that text in the pop-up using these options.

Let’s see thesteps involved in creating custom Invalid Answer pop-up in matching interactions in Articulate Storyline.

Step 1:Insert a default Matching Drag and Drop question

Step-1

Step 2:Insert a new layer,and name it as Invalid answer.

Step-2

Step 3: Designyour own invalid answer pop-up.

Step-3

Step 4:Now,youhave to create variables of true/false type.Create number of variables is equal to the number of options. I have created 3 variables as I have 3 options in my question. Name them as 1, 2 and 3.

Step-4

Step 5:Add a trigger to adjust variable 1 to True, when first dragobject dropped on all drop targets. As shown in the below screenshot below.

Step-5

Follow the same method with the second and third triggers as shown in the below screenshots.

Step-5-2nd-trigger

Step-5-3rd-trigger

Step 6:Add a trigger to show the Invalid layeronly when the value of variables 1, 2 and 3 are True.

Step-6

Step 7:Add one more trigger to submit the interaction when the learner clicks theSubmit button.

Step-7

Here is the output which we required.
