Quizmaker ‘09 uses radio buttons next to answer choices for multiple-choice and true/false questions. Radio buttons also appear in some types of survey questions, such as Likert-scale questions and pick-one questions. When a learner selects an answer choice, the button fills with a blue dot. But you know what? The dot doesn’t have to be blue if you’d rather make it some other color that matches the other colors in your quiz.
It only takes a few clicks to change your radio button color. Here’s how:
- Open your quiz in Quizmaker and double-click any question to open the question editor.
- Select Slide View.
- Click the Design tab.
- Select the Colors dropdown on the toolbar. Any theme colors currently applied to your quiz or survey will be marked with an orange outline.
- If your current theme colors are in the Custom part of the list, right-click the theme and choose Edit. If you're not using colors from the Custom list, you'll need to create a set of new theme colors, since the built-in ones aren't editable. Here's how to do that:
- Click Create New Theme Colors (it’s at the bottom of the list of colors), and
- Enter a theme name in the Name field.
- Find the Control 1 color and change it to whatever color you like.
- Click Save.
Now you can preview or publish your quiz, and when you click on a radio button next to an answer choice, you'll see the new color.
