Data-Entry Questions Are Pre-populated with the Same Answer

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

You may find that a data-entry question is already populated with a response before you've answered it if the following conditions are true:

  • Your presentation includes two or more quizzes.
  • The same type of data-entry question appears in more than one quiz.

This issue affects the following data-entry question types:

  • Fill-in-the-Blank
  • Numeric
  • Short Answer
  • Essay
  • How Many
  • Freeform Text Entry

For example, you may have a fill-in-the-blank question in two or more quizzes in the same presentation. The first one will work properly, but fill-in-the-blank questions in the other quizzes will already be filled with the answer submitted in the first quiz.
