"Enforce Number of Attempts" for Courses and Presentations

Enforcing the number of attempts for courses is a way the author can enforce the number of times a student can respond to a question when the student resumes views on a course or a presentation.

If this option is enabled and there is only 1 attempt: when the student selects an incorrect response, closes their browser, and launches the view again, their incorrect response will be maintained when the student selects the resume button.

Within Brainshark, "Enforce # of attempts per question" will be available in the Options tab when you select the "Edit Presentation" button. 



  • "Resume views" must be enabled
  • AND there has to be at least one question slide in order to see this option.
  • This feature is enforced when a student selects the resume button for a course or a presentation with question slides.

If you do not see this feature for courses when the above criteria are met, please contact Brainshark Support.
