One possibility is the example code you tried was appropriate and might need just a tad better understanding of the code to make it fall into place.

The simplest example I can think is having 3 different frames for each question, the question page, the right and wrong answer feedback pages. One would program the answer choice buttons to jump to the right result marker. This scheme is not very clever or elegant, but if there are only a few fixed questions it migh prove to be the fastest solution.

The first question's right choice script would be

on mouseUp
 go to "right-1"

The first question's wrong choices script would be

on mouseUp
 go to "wrong-1"

these 2 separate result frames would display the right and wrong feedback messages.

Each right feedback frame like under marker  "right-1" could have a score script that would increment the score.

on exitFrame
 scoreVal = value(member("scoreDisplay").text)
member("scoreDisplay").text = string(scoreVal + 1)

The next question could have copie of the 2 same button scripts edited to go to markers "right-2" and "wrong-2" , etc.

Other refinements to this score based quiz could include having feedback score sounds in the right/wrong feedback screen.
