Quizmaker 360: Pick-Many Questions
Quizmaker 360's freeform pick-many question behaves like a multiple-response question, but instead of using text as your answer choices, you can use objects—pictures, characters, shapes, captions, and more.
- Insert a Freeform Pick-Many Question
- Identify the Answer Choices
- Customize the Selected State for Answer Choices
- Customize the Question Properties
Step 1: Insert a Freeform Pick-Many Question
There are two ways to create a pick-many question. If you've already added objects to a blank (non-question) slide, you can convert it to a freeform question. If you'd prefer to start from scratch, do this:
- First, do either of the following to open the Insert Question window:
- Go to the Insert tab on the Quizmaker ribbon and click Freeform Question.
- In Question List View, go to the Home tab on the ribbon and click Freeform Question.
- When the Insert Question window appears, use the search field at the top and the filters along the left edge to locate the type of question you want to add. The slide browser includes built-in templates as well as professionally-designed Content Library templates.
- When you click a thumbnail image for a slide, the right side of the window shows a description of that question type. Click Insert Question to add it to your quiz.
- A new pick-many question will open in Slide View. Add at least two objects to the slide that will function as answer choices.
- Switch to Form View and proceed to the next step to identify your choices.
Step 2: Identify the Answer Choices
In Form View, identify the objects you want to use as answer choices. Here's how:
- Place your cursor in the Choice column, and use the drop-down selector to identify the objects you want to convert to answer choices. As you scroll over items in the list, Quizmaker outlines them in red on the slide thumbnail in the lower right corner of the screen so you can see what you're selecting.
- If your freeform pick-many question will be graded, mark the boxes for the right answers in the Correct column.
If your question doesn’t have correct and incorrect responses, go to the Home tab on the ribbon and select None from the Score drop-down to make it ungraded. (The Correct column will disappear.)
Step 3: Customize the Selected State for Answer Choices
In Form View, go to the Home tab on the ribbon and use the Selected State drop-down to choose a glow color to highlight answer choices as learners select them. This helps learners distinguish between selected and deselected items. (The glow color choices come from your theme colors.)
Step 4: Customize the Question Properties
After creating a freeform pick-many question, you can customize several of its attributes, including shuffling of answer choices, feedback, branching, score, number of attempts, and whether learners are required to answer it or allowed to skip it. To learn how, see Working with the Question Editor.
Can I Convert a Freeform Question into a Non-Question Slide?
Yes. It's easy. Just go to the Insert tab on the Quizmaker ribbon and click Remove Freeform.
When you remove freeform functionality from a question, it becomes a standard content slide. Text and other objects remain intact. Only question-related properties, such as score and feedback, are removed.
