Question List View gives you a big-picture view of your entire quiz. It’s where you arrange slides, organize them into groups, and randomize them. It’s also where you set the properties for your quiz and edit the result slide.

Switching to Question List View

Articulate Quizmaker always opens in Question List View. At any time thereafter, you can switch to Question List View by clicking the Question List View icon in the lower right corner of the screen (near the zoom slider).

Or, go to the View tab on the Quizmaker ribbon and click Question List.

If you’re in Slide View or Form View, you can also click the Questions tab just below the Quizmaker ribbon.

Adding Slides

You can add form-based questions, freeform questions, and non-question slides by clicking the corresponding buttons on the ribbon.

You can also import questions from another quiz, a quiz template, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, or a text file. See this user guide for details.

Cutting, Copying, Pasting, and Duplicating Slides

First, select one or more slides in your quiz:

  • Shift+click to select a series of consecutive slides.
  • Ctrl+click to select several non-consecutive slides.
  • Press Ctrl+A to select all slides in your quiz.

Then, do any of the following:


  • Press Ctrl+X.

Using Question Groups

You can organize slides into one or more question groups to give your quiz a logical structure. You can even randomize slides in each question group, so learners won't see the same questions in the same order. To learn how, see Using Question Groups to Pool and Randomize Questions.

Sometimes it's helpful to collapse groups, so it’s easier to work with other parts of your quiz. To collapse a group, click the minus sign (-) beside its header. To expand a group, click the plus sign (+) beside its header.

To rearrange your quiz, select one or more slides in the question list, then do any of the following:

  • Use your mouse to drag the slides to a new location in the list.
  • Click Move Question or Move Group on the Quizmaker ribbon, then choose Up or Down.

Editing Slides

To edit a slide, select it in the question list, then do any of the following:

  • Double-click it.
  • Click Edit Question on the ribbon.
  • Right-click it and choose Edit Question.

The slide will open in Slide View where you can add content and edit question properties.
