One of the great things about Articulate Quizmaker is that the results slides are created automatically, no programming necessary. Most people know that you can change the layout of the results slides, just like any other slide. But did you know there are a couple of other things you can do to personalize your results slides? Let’s take a look!
1. Select the Type of Results Slide
There are several types of results slides in Quizmaker. The graded results slide is selected by default, but if you choose the Survey option you’ll see that Quizmaker automatically gets rid of all the score-related information and adds a thank you message.
If you choose None, Quizmaker will get rid of the results slide altogether.
This can be useful if you’re creating a non-graded exercise that you plan to insert in the middle of an Articulate Presenter course.
2. Choose How You Want to Display Results: Points and/or Percentages?
By default, Quizmaker gives you the score as a percentage, with the points in parentheses. However, sometimes it doesn’t make sense to show the points, or vice-versa. If you don’t want to display the percentage, delete all the text before the parenthesis. If you want to get rid of the points, delete the parentheses and everything inside them. It’s that simple!
3. Allow Learners to Retry
You can also add a Retry button to your results slide, which is handy if learners failed and you want to let them try again, or if they passed but want to try for a better score. Simply check the box in the Results Slide Options panel and you’re all set.
4. Allow Learners to Print Their Results
Whether you need learners to print the results and send them to you because you don’t have access to an LMS, or you just want learners to be able to keep a record of their score for their own personal use, this option is available via the Results Slide Options panel. A quick check of the box, and it’s done!
5. Add “Go to URL Upon Quiz Completion”
This little-known feature is super-useful if you want to direct learners to a post-course survey or to your company’s intranet, for example. All you’ve got to do is select Go to URL and enter the website address, and learners will be sent there as soon as they’ve finished the quiz.
