Quizmaker '13: Managing Slides

Articulate Quizmaker's Question List View has several tools for managing quiz slides.

Adding Slides

You can add graded questions, survey questions, freeform questions, and blank slides by clicking the buttons on the ribbon. See Adding Slides.

You can also import questions from another quiz, a quiz template, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, or a text file. See Importing Questions.

Cutting Slides

To cut slides:

  1. Select one or more slides in your question list. (You can select an entire question group by clicking its header. Or, select all the slides in your quiz by pressing Ctrl+A.)
  2. Then right-click, and choose Cut. Or, press Ctrl+X.

Copying Slides

To copy slides:

  1. Select one or more slides in your question list. (You can select an entire question group by clicking its header. Or, select all the slides in your quiz by pressing Ctrl+A.)
  2. Then right-click, and choose Copy. Or, press Ctrl+C.

Pasting Slides

To paste slides:

  1. When pasting slides into the question list, they'll appear after the currently selected slide. Select the appropriate slide. (If no slide is selected, the pasted slides will appear at the end of the question group or quiz.)
  2. Then right-click, and choose Paste. Or, press Ctrl+V.

Duplicating Slides

To duplicate slides:

Using Question Groups

You can arrange slides into one or more question groups to organize your quiz and give it a logical structure. You also have the option to randomize slides within a question group, so learners won't see the same questions in the same order. To learn how, see Using Question Groups to Pool and Randomize Questions.

Sometimes it's helpful to collapse groups while you're working with another part of your quiz. To collapse a group, click the minus sign (-) to the left end of its header. To expand a group that was previously collapsed, click the plus sign (+).

Editing Slides

To edit a slide, select it in your question list, and then do any of the following:

  • Double-click it.
  • Right-click it, and choose Edit Question.
  • Click Edit Question on the ribbon.

The slide will open in Normal View where you can add content and edit question properties.

Deleting Slides

To delete slides, select one or more slides in your question list. (You can select an entire question group by clicking its header. Or, select all the slides in your quiz by pressing Ctrl+A.) Then do either of the following:

  • Right-click, and choose Delete Questions.
  • Click Delete Question on the ribbon. (If you selected a question group, it'll say Delete Group.)

Moving Slides

To move (rearrange) slides, select one or more slides in your question list. (You can select an entire question group by clicking its header.) Then do any of the following:

  • Drag the slides to their new location with your mouse.
  • Right-click, scroll to Move Questions, and choose Up or Down.
  • Click Move Question on the ribbon, and choose Up or Down. (If you selected a question group, it'll say Move Group.)

For details on editing the result slide, see this tutorial.

Setting Quiz Properties

To define the title, passing score, timer, and question defaults for your quiz, click the Quiz Properties button on the ribbon. To learn more about setting quiz properties, see this tutorial.

You can also set the number of attempts and points for each question directly on the question list. Just click in the Attempts column of the Points column for the question you want to edit, and specify a value.
