Insert Question Slides

You can use quizzes in your Captivate projects to see what the users have learned, get their feedback, or even check what they already knew coming in.

Every quiz question is inserted as a Question Slide, which you can chain together all at once or place individually throughout a project.

  6. Select how you want the question to be graded.
    • Graded: Will be assigned a point value that can be tallied up at the end of a project.
    • Survey: Will report the results but not assign point values.
    • Pre-test: Let you test someone's knowledge at the start and see if they know enough to skip parts of the course. They'll be graded separately, and not included in the final quiz score.

  3. Change the number of answers using the Answers field.
  4. Adjust the other Answers options.
  5. You can Shuffle the answers, so that they'll appear in a different order every time the quiz is taken. You can also toggle Multiple Answers, turning the responses into checkboxes so that more than one can be chosen. Partial Score can be applied to questions that have more than one answer to award some points even if not every correct answer is selected.

    After those options, you can set the points value for the question, as well as a penalty for an incorrect answer.
