Add dynamic assessments to your online courses by publishing your Articulate Quizmaker quizzes to Articulate Presenter.

Preparing Your Quiz Size and Player Colors

When your quiz is part of a Presenter course, we recommend using the same slide size in Quizmaker and PowerPoint. If they're different, the quiz will be centered on the PowerPoint slide and, if necessary, scaled down to fit within the slide.

If a quiz has different dimensions than PowerPoint, the slide background color from the Presenter player will show around the quiz. To change this color, do the following:

  1. Open your presentation in PowerPoint.
  2. Go to the Articulate tab on the ribbon and click Player.
  3. Click Colors & Effects on the ribbon.
  4. Click Show advanced color editing.
  5. From the Edit item drop-down, choose Base >> Slide Background.
  6. Use the color selectors to choose your background colors.
  7. Click OK.

Tips

Publishing a Quiz to Presenter

  1. Go to the Home tab on the Quizmaker ribbon and click the Publish.
  2. When the Publish window appears, click the Articulate Presenter tab on the left edge.
  3. Select the PowerPoint presentation into which you want to publish your quiz. Only presentations that are currently open will display in the list. If the presentation you want isn't listed, click the ellipsis (…) button to browse for it.
  4. Decide how you want your quiz to appear in the course. Select either of the following:
    • Insert as a slide in the presentation: This option creates a placeholder slide in your presentation. When you publish your course, the quiz will display where indicated by the placeholder slide. (You can move the placeholder slide anywhere in your presentation by dragging it to a new location.)
    • Insert as a tab in the player: This option adds a clickable tab to the top bar of your course player. Learners can click it at any time to view the quiz. (You can change the location and order of tabs on the top bar of your Presenter course player. Click here to learn how.)
  5. Click the Publish button in the lower right corner to complete the process.
  6. When the Publish Successful window appears, click Close.

Setting Quiz Properties in the Presenter Course

After publishing a quiz to Presenter, switch over to PowerPoint. The Quizzes and Interactions window will be displayed, where you can customize the properties for your newly published quiz.

If you inserted the quiz as a slide, it'll open to the Quizmaker Quizzes tab. If you inserted it as a tab on your course player, it'll open to the Player Tabs tab.

Use these options to customize the properties for your interaction:
