I am writing a problem using scaffolding. I would like to have a unique hint in the two sections. When I test the problem by logging in as a student, the first section works fine with the hint only appearing after the first attempt. But then when I correctly answer section 1 and open the second section, the hint for that section is already visible while I would again like it to remain unavailable until the student has tried answering section two at least once.
I am using $showHint = 0$ (this shows the hint after the *first* attempt, not immediately). I put it inside section 1 of the scaffolding hoping that that the command would apply only to that section, but that does not seem to be the case and it seems to carry over into section 2.
Is it possible to have hints in different sections whose behavior on when to be shown to students is independent of each other?
