Correct answer before moving to next slide

Is there a way to only allow moving to the next slide after the student has entered the correct answer?

You can’t stop them from moving, but you can conditionally put a coverText on the next slide in the screen CL (by where it says “Teacher Tips” to the left side).

coverText: when yourConditionHere "Go back and try again." otherwise ""
coverButtonLabel: "" #if not here, an "Ok" button let them into the screen

You really want to make sure your conditions are correct. If a student can’t produce the result you want, they’re locked out. So, if the third slide is conditional on the second, which is conditional on the first, you can have students locked out of a lot of an activity.

That worked great. It’s an escape room activity so preventing them from just skipping ahead helps.

Is there such a thing as coverImage? I’m thinking about adding an image to the coverText.

No. Best you can do is use emoji.

What would an example to this look like?

I am a noob to CL and learn best through examples made

You could also make all your questions on one slide and simply hide subsequent questions until the previous one is correct.

Advantages: does what you’re asking for, would work great for an autonomous activity

Disadvantages: not great for class discussion and would make for a potentially long “one screen” on the building side of things

Check out this example from @cwinske. (You’ll see it once you click on the thread.)

Hi all,

What would the conditions be if you want to make sure the answer from the previous question is correct?

The cover text option works really well, but I’ve also gone to the trouble of hiding the individual components on the follow-up screen till the target screen is correct. Admittedly, this could get tedious if you want to hide multiple screens, each with its own conditions.

Alternatively, use pacing in the Dashboard, so you have to create conditional reveals on only a few screens at a time.

An example is below.

PS: @Daniel_Grubbs solution in post#2 is much more efficient. Simply hiding the “OK” button is so much easier.
