Using answers from one item in another
I'm wondering if there's a way to grab a student's answer from one item and include it in another item later in the test.
The use case is where I have a student either select a value from a multiple choice or enter an answer in a text field, and then later in the test have a text area that displays something along the lines of 'On question 3, you chose X'.
I'm hoping to do this so that I can keep a single question/interaction per item and reduce the amount of scrolling that a student would have to do on a test.
I also understand, that if this could work, it will have to be done on a section of the test that does not allow shuffling. I can't have the later question with the prompt displayed before the first question is even asked. I'm also assuming this would be some sort of custom interaction that would reach back and grab the answer from the first question. Unfortunately, I'm not sure where to start looking for the API to let me do that.
Thanks for any advice.
