Counters and MCQ Scores

If you are using MCQs in your case you may wish to keep to track of the player's score.
This score could be used to provide feedback at the end of the case or redirect the player to another node if, for example, they perform particularly well or badly.

In this case we need to 'store' the MCQ score in a counter.

If you aren't already you need to be familiar with 'counters' and how to set them up - Step by Step Guide to Counters
