In Articulate Quizmaker, you can give learners feedback after they answer a question—and you can branch learners to different parts of your quiz based on their answers.

Setting Feedback for Individual Questions

To enable feedback for an individual question, do the following, depending on your current view.

Form View:

  1. First, determine how feedback will be triggered. Go to the Home tab, and choose one of the following options from the Feedback drop-down:
    • None: This option prevents any feedback from displaying for the question.
    • By Question: This lets you show feedback for the overall question. For graded questions, you can provide Correct and Incorrect feedback. For survey questions, you can provide Thank You feedback.
    • By Choice: This lets you show different feedback for each answer choice. This option is only available for some question types, such as Multiple Choice, Word Bank, Pick One, Which Word, Freeform Pick One, and Freeform Hotspot.
  2. Then enter the appropriate text into the feedback fields. If you're displaying feedback By Question, the fields are at the bottom of the window. If you're displaying feedback By Choice, they're to the right of each answer choice.
    • If you allow more than one attempt for a graded question and you're displaying feedback By Question, you can customize the Try Again feedback.
    • If you've enabled the quiz review feature on your result slide, you can also include Post-Quiz Review feedback.
  3. To add hyperlinks, audio, or branching to your feedback, click the More button beside any feedback field. (We'll talk more about branching at the end of this tutorial.) See Using the Feedback Window for details.
  4. To change how your feedback looks, switch to Slide View, and edit the feedback layers. To give all the feedback layers throughout your quiz a consistent design, edit the feedback master.

Slide View:

  1. First, determine how feedback will be triggered. Choose one of the following options from the Feedback drop-down in the Question panel on the right side of the slide workspace:
    • None: This option prevents any feedback from displaying for the question.
    • By Question: This lets you show feedback for the overall question. For graded questions, you can provide Correct and Incorrect feedback. For survey questions, you can provide Thank You feedback.
    • By Choice: This lets you show different feedback for each answer choice. This option is only available for some question types, such as Multiple Choice, Word Bank, Pick One, and Which Word.
  2. Then use the feedback layers in the lower right corner of the screen to customize the text, images, audio, video, and other resources you plan to use for feedback. To learn more about feedback layers, see this tutorial.
    • Note: If you're displaying feedback By Choice, you'll need to switch to Form View to enter the feedback text for each answer choice. Then you can return to Slide View to customize the feedback layers.
  3. To give all the feedback layers throughout your quiz a consistent design, edit the feedback master.

Setting the Default Feedback for New Questions

You can enable feedback by default for all new questions to save development time. Here's how:

  1. Switch to Question List View.
  2. Go to the Home tab, and click Quiz Properties.
  3. Select the Question Defaults tab on the left side of the window.
  4. Mark one or both of the following boxes to enable feedback for new questions.
    • Provide feedback for graded questions by default
    • Provide feedback for survey questions by default
  5. Click OK.

Tip: Existing questions in your quiz won't be affected when you change the default settings, so it's a good idea to set your question defaults before adding any slides to your quiz. You can override the default feedback setting for any question by changing the Feedback value for that particular question (see above).

To change the default feedback text, edit the text labels for your player. To learn more about text labels, see this tutorial. (You can override the default text for a specific slide simply by typing new text into the feedback fields for that slide.)

To give feedback a consistent design throughout your quiz, edit the feedback master.

Branching

By default, all slides branch to the next slide in the quiz, but you can change this behavior. For example, you might want to branch learners to a certain slide in the quiz if they get a particular question right and another slide if they get it wrong.

  1. First, feedback must be enabled for the question (see above).
  2. Then switch to Form View, and click the More button beside any feedback field (except Post-Quiz Review feedback).
  3. On the Feedback window that appears, use the Branching drop-down to specify what should happen when learners advance past the current slide. Choose one of the following:
    • Next Slide: This jumps to the next slide in the quiz.
    • Previous Slide: This jumps back to the slide you just viewed. (It may not be the slide that comes sequentially before the current slide.)
    • Finish Quiz: This jumps to the result slide.
    • Specific Question Group: Select any question group in your quiz to jump directly to it.
    • Specific Slide: Select any slide in your quiz to jump directly to that slide.
  4. Click OK.
