<font size=3D"2">Hi,<br><br>I am looking for examples of sequences using br=
anching logic within a sequence using the Advanced Sequence editor. For exa=
mple, if problem 1 has more than 2 tries, go to problem 2, otherwise go to =
problem 3. <br><br>I have managed to add a condition above a resource probl=

If I go in as Course Coordinator and try the problem, I cannot reset the ra=
ndomization/clear my answer and retry the problem. Once I have answered a p=
roblem, it seems to be set in stone, even if I delete the sequence from the=
 course and re-add it as a new resource. How do I clear my answer?<br><br>C=
an I test the sequence from within the editor (as author for example)? It s=
eems that I have to publish the sequence, delete the previous version from =
the course, and re-add the new version. Even then, it seems to still use th=
e old version - yes, I did the course re-initialization button. <br><br>Tha=
