- Ask student's why they made the choice they selected.
- Bring their attention to the impact their choice had on their points.
How to use text-based variables.
- Add any of the variables below to your content node
- If the variable has value it will display it in the player during session.
- If the variable does not have an assigned value then it will be hidden.
- Content variables will display the assigned value during Maze play on any node.
|Text Variable||Description||Usage Example|
|%answer%||Pipes forward the text of the student's last selected choice to the next node.||Why did you choose %answer%?
%answer% is only partially correct. What are you going to do next?
|%name%||Displays the student's name in the content. The student name can be captured with a URL Parameter, or by enabling "require name and email" on the link, or from their Mazetec account||%name% why did you choose %answer%?|
|%email%||Display the student's email in the content. The student email can be captured with a URL Parameter, or by enabling "require name and email" on the link, or from their Mazetec account||Is %email% still your correct email?|
|%credits%||Displays the numerical value of the students remaining credits. Credits must be enabled in the Maze.||You have %credits% remaining.|
|%prefix%||Displays your credit system's prefix in the content.||You have %prefix% %credits% remaining.|
|%suffix%||Displays your credit system's suffix of the content.||You have %prefix% %credits% %suffix% remaining.|
Example of putting it all together:
%name%, %answer% is only partially correct. Now you have %prefix% %credits% %suffix% remaining. What are you going to do to correct this next?
Capture the name and email variables with your link.
Seamlessly pass the Student name and email with the Maze link.
|Mazetec URL (GET) Variable||Potential Variables||Example|
