Problem
When remediating after a retry sequencing request, you often want to skip sections that were previously satisfied or perhaps attempted. A common case might be a pretest that can only be attempted once or a SCO that doesn’t have to be retaken if previously mastered. Easy, right, just add a precondition rule that says “if satisfied then skip”. Not so fast. The retry rule will reset the attempt data.

Solution
Set “Use Current Attempt Progress / Objective Info” to false. That enables the data from the previous attempt to be used in the sequencing rule should no data exist yet for the current attempt.
