Quiz allowing repeated attempt but counting them

#1 by AndreL

Hi again,

How can I implement a multi-question quiz that (as usual) allows subjects to re-take questions as many times as needed until they get everything correct, but also counts how many attempts they make at each question?

To clarify: the quiz will be on just one page/app, containing several questions, and subjects click "Submit" when ready. The idea is to deduct penalties the more times they attempt before getting it right.

Hi, it sounds like you're trying to record the number of wrong answers for each questions separately? (i.e. q1 wrong 2 times, q2 wrong 0 times, q3 wrong 4 times, etc...)

See here:


In your case, you can count how many times the questions were answered wrong with this code, which you can put in before_next_page or some set_payoffs function:

# count of all incorrect responses

# count of incorrect responses to a particular question
len(IncorrectResponse.filter(player=player, field_name='xyz'))

By the way thank you for the donation :)
