Asset Description

The Text Input asset allows the user to enter text, following which a selected sub-screen can be shown as feedback. The asset can either be used as a free text field to gather custom Learner information OR as a question within an assessment that has specific correct answer/s 


1. Add a Text Input asset to a screen in your project. Find the Text Input asset in the ‘Question’ list & drag the asset into a content block in the screen

2. Add a standard Text asset to above the Text Input asset with the question you would like to ask

3. Populate the Initial text field to provide details of the action the Learner must take  
4. Populate the Correct answer field with list of potential correct answers. 
4.a Note that answers are not case sensitive.

4.b If there is more than one correct answer to the question then you can separate answers using the following value ||. For example, 'one||two||three'.

4.c If you are using the asset to gather custom Learner information then you can leave the Correct answer field blank

5. If you are using the asset as a question then you can also populate the FEEDBACK fields. You can either populate the Basic or Advanced feedback. Please note Advanced feedback allows you to link to a subscreen. You will need to add a subscreen to the screen containing the Text Input asset to use this feature.
