How do I make form fields available as variables?

You can use form fields as variables to enable learner-input to trigger certain events. For example, you may use a form field variable for verifying a users input in compare and contrast exercise, or for assessing a software simulation that requires users to input text. 

To make form fields available as variables:

  1. Enter a distinct title into the Title field on the workspace toolbar for each of your Text Input elements.
  2. From the Interaction tab, select Form Fields.
  3. The Forms Fields panel will open. You will see your distinctly named Text Input elements. From the Variable column select New Variable.
  4. Assign the element a new variable name.
  5. Click OK to complete.
