Branching Condition for Q&A

The Q&A Tool now supports Text Based Conditions (see See LDEV-1918 on bugs.lamsfoundation.org). This means that Learners can be assigned to groups or streamed along branches according to their responses to a Q&A Activity.

Adding a Text Based condition to a Q&A Activity

  • To add a new condition to a Q&A, first click the new Conditions Tab at the top of the screen, then click Add Condition.
    • A unique name must be given to each condition created for the activity. It's best practice to relate the name to what the condition is testing for, such as: "Answered Blue" or "Mentioned Oxygen".
  • For each condition, there are several options for how to search the Learners responses:
    • Have all of these words: will seperate the learners who have entered each of the given words as part of their response.
    • Have this exact wording: will seperate the learners who have entered the exact phrase as part their response.
    • Have none of these words: will seperate the learners who have mentioned at least one of the given words as part of their response.
    • Have none of these unwanted words: seperates the learners who have not mentioned any of the given words.
  • These rules can be used simultaneously, and also can be applied to one or more seperate questions.

Examples:

Conditions can be very specific:
To separate the learners who have replied with Foo and Bar in their response:

have all these words:

foo bar

have this exact wording or phrasing:

 

have one or more of these words:

 

have none of these unwanted words:

 

... less specific...
To separate the learners who have replied with either Foo or Bar:

have all these words:

 

have this exact wording or phrasing:

 

have one or more of these words:

foo bar

have none of these unwanted words:

 

... and very complex!
To separate the learners who have:

  • replied Foo
  • replied Bat or Bar
  • but not replied with Foobar

have all these words:

bat

have this exact wording or phrasing:

 

have one or more of these words:

bat bar

have none of these unwanted words:

foobar
