Customising the results slide

I'm putting together a quiz for my tech-shy (or so they think) internal team. The language is very informal, the questions and responses a bit unusual. I'm trying to funk it up a bit. I have had to be a bit out of the box with my thinking to make it work with the quiz templates available (I have some suggestions on this point - not sure how to make them), but the results slide is letting me down. I love the look of the thumbnail in the Insert Slide dialog box, but I am at a loss as to how to make mine look anything like it.I tried using a handwritten looking font, but the top and bottom of the number got cut off.

Also, I don't want a pass/fail thing. I want to say "You are 80% geeky, you clearly blah blah" or "You are 20% geeky, here are some things blah blah blah"

Am I baying at the moon?

Thanks Rehan. I managed to achieve something fairly similar to that, but nothing like the thumbnail. And the top of my percentage number was cut off, no matter what I tried to do.

I also don't see a way to give feedback based on a sliding scale. There seems to be the option to have a pass or a fail. But this in't that kind of assessment.

Hi Karyn,

You could determine what is shown to the user by creating different layers that would be shown based on the score received - no need to limit to pass fail. You'll want to look into using the conditions associated with the trigger panel, so say that it would look something like this:

Show layer -Kinda Geeky if the Results1.scorepoint is greater than 50 and less than 65

Show layer - Totally cool kid if the Results1.scorepoints is less than or equal to 50

Show layer - super geeky if the Results1.scorepoint is greater than 65 and less than 80

Show layer - The Geekiest if the Results1.scorepoint is greater than or equal to 80

So it's up to you to determine those cut points and what is shown on each layer. You may even want to use something like this cool progress meter on the results slide.

Hi All,

Karyn, you peaked my whimsical side with this one. Coupla' things: You CAN use the regular Results Slide and customize any way you'd like. That's what I did with the attached.

Question Slide and Results Slide Layouts

Background for Question Slides: 2 rectangles on the Slide Master: question layout.

Background for Results Slide: rectangle on the Slide Master: blank layout

Radio Fill on Question Slides changed to brown

Question box narrowed significantly.

See all notes slides for images source (all are Pixaby...LOVE Pixabay)

Results Slide

  • The "whimsical" percents were done in PowerPoint. The text (e.g., 100%) was done in WordArt. Font is Giddyup Std
  • The "eyes" are small circles
  • The mouth was done with a curve shape. Edit points were "pulled" to change the shape for each of the different scores...and eyes were moved around.
  • Teardrop on the 0% score is the teardrop shape...and the mouth is of course a circle. the "nose" is a decimal point.
  • Each set (text, mouth, eyes) was grouped and saves out as an image.

Images were inserted onto the Success layer (100% and 80%) and Failure Layers (0, 20, 40, and 60%)

Results Slide Success Layer

  • Most base layer objects hidden; exception is Review Quiz button
  • Default checkmark is hidden; Pixabay checkmark is inserted
  • Default text is changed to the Giddyup Std typeface
  • The 100% picture is showin by default (that is, its state is normal when the timeline starts)
  • The 80% picture has an initial state of hidden
  • A trigger changes the state of 100% picture to hidden when the timeline starts if the Results.ScorePercent is 80.
  • A trigger changes the state of 80% picture to normal when the timeline starts if the Results.ScorePercent is 80

Results Slide Failure Layer

  • Most base layer objects hidden; exception is Review Quiz button
  • Default x is hidden; Pixabay x is inserted
  • Default text is changed to the Giddyup Std typeface
  • All percent pictures have an initial state of hidden
  • Triggers "unhide" the percents when the associated score is achieved.
  • For example, a trigger changes the state of the zero percent picture to normal when the timeline starts of the Results.ScorePercent is 0.

I think that covers it...let me know if I missed anything and please shout out with any questions.

Oh, and tx for the inspiration!
