Use Articulate Quizmaker to add dynamic quizzes and surveys to Articulate Presenter courses. You can create new quizzes directly in Presenter or import existing quizzes.

Creating a New Quiz

To create a new quiz as a slide in your course, do the following:

  1. Select the slide in your presentation that'll come just before your quiz. (You can rearrange slides at any time in PowerPoint, but the quiz will initially be inserted after the slide that’s currently selected.)
  2. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Quizmaker Quiz.
  3. Select the Quizmaker Quizzes tab in the upper left corner of the window that appears.
  4. Click Create New on the right side of the window.
  5. When prompted, enter a title for your quiz and click OK. (This title will be shown in the player menu and will also be used for the quiz project file name.)
  6. When Quizmaker launches, build your assessment the way you want. To learn more about using Quizmaker, see these user guides.
  7. When your quiz is ready, click Save and Return to Presenter on the Quizmaker ribbon.

To adjust the properties for your quiz, such as what happens when learners pass or fail, see Customizing Quiz Properties.

Tip: Another option for adding a new quiz to Presenter is to launch Quizmaker, build the quiz, then publish it directly to Presenter.

Importing an Existing Quiz

If you already created a quiz that you want to add to your Presenter course, do the following:

  1. Select the slide in your presentation that'll come just before your quiz. (You can rearrange slides at any time in PowerPoint, but the quiz will initially be inserted after the slide that's currently selected.)
  2. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Quizmaker Quiz.
  3. Select the Quizmaker Quizzes tab in the upper left corner of the window that appears.
  4. Click Add Existing on the right side of the window.
  5. Browse to the quiz file you want to import and click Open.
  6. Use the following properties to customize how the quiz interacts with the rest of your course:
    • Remove: This removes the quiz from your presentation. (If you've added more than one quiz, make sure you select the right one in the list before you remove it.)
    • Edit quiz in Articulate Quizmaker: This opens the quiz in Quizmaker so you can edit it. When you finish editing, click Save and Return to Presenter on the Quizmaker ribbon.
    • When user passes: Choose what happens when learners pass the quiz. You can close the window, go to a URL, or jump to a specific slide in the course.
    • When user fails: Choose what happens when learners fail the quiz. You can close the window, go to a URL, or jump to a specific slide in the course.
    • Allow user to leave quiz: Decide when learners are allowed to skip ahead or jump back to another slide in the course—at any time or only after they've completed the quiz (whether they pass or fail).
    • User may view slides after quiz: Decide when learners are allowed to view slides that come after the quiz in your course—at any time, after they at least attempt the quiz, or only after they actually pass the quiz.
    • Show in menu as: Choose whether your quiz will display as a single item in the player menu or as multiple items (one for each slide in your quiz).
  7. When you're finished, click Close.

Tip: Another option for adding an existing quiz to Presenter is to open the quiz in Quizmaker and publish it directly to Presenter.
