"Is there a way to "require" that all questions be answered?"

Is there a way to "require" that all questions be answered?

I was wondering if it would be possible to "force" the test-taker to at least make a guess instead of leaving a question blank - like maybe some way to have the "next question" button not show up until they have answered the current question? Or have a popup appear when the "next question" button is pressed, that says something like "You must answer this questions before moving on to the next one".

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks,
Cory

You may want to look how we used the uTestNextButton in the Space Science demo at:

http://www.uburst.com/uTest/demo/space.html

It won't require the student to answer the question, but it would make it a two-step process between each question.... by immediately showing them the correct answer.

Otherwise, the only way at this time to make sure the student at least tries to enter each question would be to utilize JavaScript ... as in the the "JavaScript Examples" in the reference at:

http://www.uburst.com/uTest/reference/

A JavaScript could then be attached to some sort of Navigation button/link such that all of the questions on a page are answered before linking them to the next page.
