Restart and random questions from pool

Hello,
I have a small interactive presentation which draws 4 slides from a pool of 7.
Then on a last closing slide I have a restart button.
It seems that if I use the restart button the 4 selected slides stay the same.
Only if I refresh the page do I get a new random set of 4.

Is there a way to force a new random set of slides when hitting the restart button?

Thanks and regards,

Michael

Hi,

You can add a Javascript code in your restart button to reload the presentation:

Please notice that this only works if you run the presentation without LMS.

Hi,
Thanks for that.
And for an LMS any solution or must the user close it and restart it?

Hi Michael,

If you run on LMS, there should be an option for users that they can choose a new attempt or just resume a previous section. Users must close and restart it.

Hello,
Ideally I would like to have it work inside the SCORM itself as it autoplays and the users do not see the course page where you select start new attempt.
Interestingly enough - location.reload() works in the LMS… it comes up with a new random set of slides… but it also indicates and error -
“GetValue(cmi.entry) failed
Retrieve data after termination”.
This error doesn’t prevent it from working as should. Is there a way to prevent the error or prevent it from popping up ?
Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Calling location.reload inside the SCORM package may produce unexpected result since all SCORM related calls will be invalid after that.

Hi,
Well noted.
Any other idea how to force a new attempt and slide reloads from inside the SCORM?
Can I initialize it again or something like that?
Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Unfortunately, it seems there is no way to that.

Hi,
Ok - I will work around the problem.
Thanks
