Quizmaker ‘09 allows you to give your learners more than just one shot at getting the right answer. It’s easy to customize how many tries they get. Here’s how:
- Open your quiz in Quizmaker and select any question.
- Click the Attempts dropdown and choose how many tries you'd like your users to have. Then click Save & Close.
- You'll also need to make sure your quiz player template is set up to allow users to submit one answer at a time (not all at once). Click Player Templates, select the template you're using, and click Edit.
- Click the Navigation tab at the left edge of the window and select Submit one question at a time.
- Click OK and then Close.
That's all you need to do—once you publish, users who get the question wrong the first time will have an additional chance (or chances) to give a different answer.
Changing the Default Value for Attempts
If you like, you can also change your quiz defaults so that any new question you add has a specific number of attempts. It takes just a few steps:
- Click Quiz Properties.
- Choose the Question Defaults tab on the left edge of the window.
- Find the Attempts permitted dropdown and use it to select whatever number you want.
- Click OK to save your changes.
Now any new questions you add to your quiz will have the Attempts setting that you specified.
