About quizzes and questions

You can use Adobe Presenter to create interactive e‑learning presentations that are SCORM or AICC compliant for use with a learning management system. When you create e‑learning content for presentations, you can create a combination of quizzes and questions.

Leverage HTML5 support to deliver eye-catching quizzes on tablets. Choose from a wide range of question types, such as matching, short answer, and fill-in-the-blank. Export scoring data to leading SCORM-, AICC-, and Tincan-compliant LMSs. For more information on publishing HTML5 output, see Publish as HTML5

Quizzes are the containers that hold questions. You can use the Quiz Manager to create a single quiz for a presentation or multiple quizzes in a single presentation. Then you add questions to the quiz or quizzes. You can add graded questions, survey questions, or a combination of both to each quiz.

After adding questions, use question groups to ensure two people taking the same quiz do not see the same questions in the same order. Quizzes are assigned an Objective ID, a number that specifies an objective set in your learning management system or Adobe Connect Server. Using quizzes and their default Objective IDs is the best way to coordinate Adobe Presenter presentations with Adobe Connect Server and existing content.

quizmanager
The Quiz Manager lets you organize all of the quizzes and questions in a presentation.

A. Quiz no 1 B. Different types of questions in quiz 1 C. Quiz no 2 D. A question in quiz 2 

You can design the following types of questions in Adobe Presenter:

  • Multiple-choice

  • Short answer

  • Matching

  • True/False

  • Rating scale (Likert)

  • Fill in the blank

  • Sequence
  • Hot Spot

注意:

Sequence and Hot Spot questions are available only for PPTX files and not on PPT files.

You can grade the questions or use them in surveys to gather information.

Branching in quizzes

Branching is an important concept in creating effective e‑learning materials and a useful way to customize presentations. In branched presentations (sometimes called contingency branching), the path that users take through a quiz or survey is determined by their responses to questions. For example, you can create branches based on correct answers, incorrect answers, or options selected by the user. Depending on these factors, you can continue the presentation, jump to a specific slide, open a URL, and so on.

Through branching, you can specify what happens when users answer questions correctly or incorrectly. For example, you can associate one action (such as “Go to the next slide”) to a correct answer and another (such as “Open URL”) to an incorrect answer.

Reporting

Reporting lets you track student performance with any type of quiz. You can track the number of attempts, log correct and incorrect responses, and send pass/fail data to Adobe Connect Server. You can also choose to provide students with feedback based on correct or incorrect responses.

Quiz boundaries

When you add a quiz to a presentation, an invisible quiz boundary is established. The quiz boundary is from the first question of a quiz to the last question of a quiz. For example, if you have 10 questions in a quiz, the boundary is from the first question slide to the tenth question slide. If there are any slides between question slides, those slides are considered within the quiz boundaries. If you have added an instruction slide, the instruction slide is also within the quiz boundary. Result slides are also inside quiz boundaries. 

When users view a presentation, they may move in and out of the quiz boundaries. For example, if a user moves back a slide from the first question, they have exited the quiz boundary. Also, if the user is on the final question slide and advances to view the scoring/results slide, they have exited the quiz boundary.

Quiz boundaries are important to several features in Adobe Presenter. You can have Adobe Presenter display a message to users if they try to leave the quiz boundary without attempting all questions in the quiz. The Quiz pane appears in the presentation sidebar when a user is within a quiz boundary.

Tips for creating quizzes and questions

Here are a few tricks and tips to try when adding quizzes to your presentation:

  • When creating a matching question, drag items between the two columns to establish the correct matches.

  • Try customizing feedback messages to accurately communicate with presentation users.

  • Experiment with branching to customize presentations for different types of users.

  • If you have quizzes in one presentation that would be appropriate for another presentation, import the quiz and save time.

  • Use the shuffle question and shuffle answer options to show users different versions of the same information.

  • Consider adding custom audio feedback based on how users answer questions. You can select different audio for a correct answer and an incorrect answer.

  • Try editing the settings in the Show Score At End Of Quiz option. You can write custom pass and fail messages, design the slide using background colors, and choose how to display the score.
  • Moving  a question from one quiz to another quiz from presentation (.pptx) film strip is not supported. Do it from Quiz manager.
  • Always create questions in the Quiz Manager. For example, while in PowerPoint, do not copy a quiz slide in the left pane and then paste it to create a “new” quiz slide. This results in two slides with the same interaction ID, which is not supported by learning management systems.

  • If a change is made in the question by editing the slide contents, open the Quiz Manager once before publishing the presentation. Quiz validation and updating is done only when the Quiz Manager is opened.

Adobe recommends that users do not edit the question slides generated by the Quiz Manager.

  • Change the text formatting of quiz questions after the entire quiz is generated. For example, you can create and generate the quiz and then use the Quiz Manager Appearance tab to change the font size.

Create a quiz

When you open the Quiz Manager for the first time, a default quiz is displayed. You can use the default quiz or add more quizzes as necessary.

注意:

If you are creating a quiz that consists of only survey questions, the user has only one chance to take the quiz. Try to keep the length of survey-only quizzes fairly short, for example, 15–20questions, so users can complete the survey easily.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Add Quiz. 

    If you are using Microsoft Office XP, the quiz is generated after the first slide in the presentation. For presentations made with versions of Microsoft Office other than XP, the first quiz is created after the first selected slide in the PowerPoint Slide tab. In all versions of Microsoft Office, quizzes created after a first quiz are placed directly after the first quiz.

    Once quiz slides exist, you can drag the slides in the PowerPoint Slide tab to other locations in the presentation. (When moving quiz slides, check that the entire quiz is moved; moving a question slide from one quiz to another quiz is not supported.)

  3. In the New Quiz dialog box, accept the default name or enter a new name in the Name text box.
  4. From the pop‑up menu next to Required, select an option to determine if users must take or pass the quiz. When selecting an option, consider how the quiz fits in with your e‑learning strategy for the presentation. For example, you can require users to pass the quiz or allow them to skip the quiz.

    Optional

    The learner can attempt the quiz, but is not required to take the quiz.

    Required

    The learner is required to at least attempt the quiz. A quiz attempt is defined as answering (selecting or typing an answer and pressing Submit) at least one question in the quiz. Simply viewing a question is not considered an attempt. Until the learners answer at least one question in the quiz, they are not permitted to move forward in the presentation beyond the last question slide in that quiz. The required option does not, however, limit the learner from navigating among slides within a given quiz.

    Pass Required

    The learner must pass this quiz to continue. If you select this option, all navigation to any slide past the end of the quiz is prohibited until the learner achieves a passing score. This restriction affects both learner-initiated navigation (for example, clicking forward or back buttons in the playbar or clicking on a slide in the Outline pane) and author-initiated branching (for example, immediate question and quiz feedback). If you select the Pass Required option, you must show a scoring slide. The scoring slide tells learners why they cannot move past the quiz. If no scoring slide is chosen, the Pass Required option behaves the same as Optional and no navigation restrictions exist.

    Answer All

    The learner must answer every question. The questions must be answered in order and no questions can be skipped.

  5. Select the options you want to incorporate into the quiz:

    Allow Backward Movement

    (Optional) Enables learners to click the Back button in the playbar to move backward. If you leave this option unchecked, learners cannot move backward when taking a quiz. (Leaving this option unchecked prevents learners from seeing quiz questions and then going back to earlier slides to look up correct answers.)

    Allow User To Review Quiz

    (Optional) Displays a Review Quiz button on the scoring slide. Learners can click the button and be taken back to the first question slide in the quiz. Learners can see their answer to each question, whether their answer is correct, and, if the answer is not correct, the correct answer. Reviewing a quiz is strictly informational; learners cannot change their answers while reviewing.

    Include Instructions Slide

    (Optional) Displays a slide at the beginning of the quiz containing information for users about how to take the quiz. The slide is added with no text; navigate to the slide in PowerPoint and add your quiz-level, custom instruction text. The slide does contain, by default, a Start Quiz button that users can click to navigate to the first question of the quiz. When the presentation is viewed, the playbar stops at the instruction slide (just like any quiz slide) so users can read the text. In the published presentation, the instruction slide is displayed in the Outline pane, Thumb pane, and, if it was added, the Quiz pane.

    Show Score At End Of Quiz

    (Optional) Displays a scoring slide at the end of the quiz. You can write custom pass and fail messages, design the slide using background colors, and choose how to display the score.

    Show Questions In Outline

    (Optional) Displays the name of the question slide in the outline when users see the presentation in the Adobe Presenter viewer.

    Shuffle Questions

    (Optional) Changes the order of questions each time the quiz is displayed.

    Shuffle Answers

    (Optional) Randomly changes the order in which possible answers appear.

  6. Click the Pass Or Fail Options tab.
  7. Select an option in the Pass/Fail Options area. Specify a passing score either as a percentage (for example, 80% correct) or a number of correct answers (for example, 8 out of 10).
  8. Select the actions that take place when users receive a passing grade or a failing grade. For example, use the pop‑up menu next to Action and select Go To Slide to display a specific slide in response to passing or failing.

    注意:

    If you are using the Allow Backward Movement option, it is important to set the correct answering options. If Allow Backward Movement is not selected (unchecked), set the Quiz Options to Answer All and set the number of allowable quiz attempts to one. If a quiz is set to any option other than Answer All, select (check) the Allow Backward Movement option. This prevents the situation where, if a learner is allowed to skip over a question, and the Allow Backward Movement option is not selected, the learner cannot go back and answer skipped questions. In most cases, it is better to not select the Allow Backward Movement option.

  9. Click OK and then click OK again in the Quiz Manager to edit the presentation.
  10. In the Quiz Manager, select the quiz you added, and add questions to the quiz. For more information, see Add questions to presentations.

Add questions to quizzes

In Adobe Presenter, you can add different types of questions. Each type of question contains different options. Click the links below for details about adding each of the question types.

Add multiple choice questions

In Adobe Presenter, you can have multiple-choice questions branch according to user responses. For example, in a question with three possible answers, you can set up branching in this way: If the user selects the first answer, go to the next slide; if users select second, jump to a slide later in the quiz; if users select third, open a web page.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).

  2. Select the slide before the one in which you want to insert a question. For example, if you want the new question to be slide 7 in the presentation, click slide 6.

    If you are inserting the question into an existing quiz, the question is appended to the quiz.

  3. In Quiz Manager (Adobe Presenter > Manage), click the quiz to which you want to add a question and click Add Question.

    Adding multiple-choice quiz questions

  4. In the Question Types dialog box, select Multiple Choice and click one of the following options:

    • Create Graded Question The question is graded.
    • Create Survey Question The question is not graded.

    The New multiple choice question dialog box appears.

  5. On the Question tab, accept the default text for the name or enter a new name in the Name text box. The name appears on the question slide in the presentation.

    question-name
    Setting up the multiple-choice question

    注意:

    If you are creating more than one question of the same type (for example, multiple-choice, short answer, and so on.) in a single presentation, type a unique name for each so that you can distinguish between them.

  6. In the Question text box, type the multiple-choice question exactly as you want it to appear on the slide. (The Question text box cannot be left blank.)

  7. In the Score text box, type (or use the up and down arrows to specify) the number of points allocated to this question.

    Assigning points signifies the relative importance of a question. By assigning different point values to different questions, you can give introductory questions a lower value than advanced questions, for example. You can enter any whole number value. If all questions have the same value (for example, 10 points), they are scored equally.

  8. In the Answers area, click Add and enter possible answers. 

    If necessary, click Delete to remove an answer from the list.

    注意:

    A multiple-choice question requires at least two answers.

  9. (Optional) Click Advanced to set options for individual answers, such as a custom feedback message, a specific action, or audio.

    注意:

    If you have a long answer, the Advanced Answer Options dialog box gives you more space to type the answer.

    注意:

    The advanced features enabled here are valid only if you plan to create a single correct response. 

  10. Select the radio button next to the correct answer.

  11. From the Type drop-down menu, select whether there are multiple correct responses or a single correct response.

    If you select multiple correct responses, be sure to come back and select the radio buttons next to all the correct responses.

  12. In Numbering, use the pop‑up menu to specify how answers are listed on the slide. You can choose from uppercase letters, lowercase letters, or numbers.

  13. Select the Options tab.

  14. (Optional) From the Type pop‑up menu, select the question type: Graded or Survey.

  15. In the If Correct Answer area, set the following options:

    Action

    Select which action should follow a correct response. You can advance to the next slide (Go To Next Slide, the default action), jump to another slide in the presentation (Go To Slide), or display a web page (Open URL). If you display a web page, type its address in the Open URL text box, and then specify where to display the web page (choose Current to have the web page replace the presentation or New to display the web page in another window).

    Play Audio Clip

    Select this option to import an audio file or record a new audio file that should play when the question is answered correctly. Use the Record, Stop, Remove, and Import buttons as necessary. (If you have already recorded audio, a Play button replaces the Record button. To rerecord audio, you must first remove the audio, and then select Record.)

    note: If a question has an audio clip and an action, the audio clip plays before the action takes place.

    Go To Next Slide

    Depending on the option you selected for Action, this text box lets you specify an exact destination.

    Show Correct Message

    Select this option to provide a text message to users when they provide a correct answer. Deselect this option if you don’t want to give any feedback for a correct answer.

  16. In the If Wrong Answer area, set the following options:

    Allow User [#] Attempts

    Use the arrows or type directly in the text box to specify how many guesses the user can make before another action takes place. An attempt is defined as any time a user opens and views the question slide. (Setting the number of attempts to 1 prevents the presentation from proceeding if the user exits and then attempts to enter the quiz again. Do not set attempts to 1 if you plan to use your presentation in a meeting or place in an archive.)

    Infinite attempts

    Select this option to give users an unlimited number of attempts.

    Action

    Click the desired action or destination after the last attempt. You can advance to the next slide (Go To Next Slide, the default action), jump to another slide in the presentation (Go To Slide), or display a web page (Open URL). In the Open URL text box, type the address of the web page and then specify where to display the web page (choose Current to have the web page replace the presentation or New to display the web page in another window).

    Go To Next Slide

    Depending on the option you selected for Action, this text box lets you specify an exact destination.

    Play Audio Clip

    Select this option to import an audio file or record a new audio file that should play when the question is answered incorrectly. Use the Record, Stop, Remove, and Import buttons as necessary.

Add rating scale questions

Users answer rating scale questions by specifying their level of agreement to a statement. For example, a user may be given the question, “This presentation provided me with valuable information.” and asked if they disagree, somewhat disagree, are neutral, somewhat agree, or agree.

Rating scale questions are always survey questions and are therefore not graded. You cannot assign a rating scale question with a point value, nor can you creating branching for a correct or incorrect answer (since it’s a survey question and does not have a correct or incorrect answer). You can, however, decide what happens after the user completes the rating scale question, such as continuing to the next slide or displaying a URL.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).

About question groups

A question group is simply a set of, for example, 10 questions. You decide how many of the questions are formed into a subset when the quiz containing the questions appears in the presentation. For example, five out of the 10 questions appear. (All of the questions in the quiz are included in the final, published presentation, but when the presentation is viewed, only the number of questions you specified, in this case five, are displayed for the user.) Question groups are one method you can use to ensure two people taking the same quiz do not see the same questions in the same order (shuffling questions is another method).

注意:

Any non-question (content) slides located within a question group boundary (between the first and last question of a question group) are not displayed in the published presentation.

When you create question groups, you receive more options including setting mandatory questions, branching based on percentage scored in a question group, and question shuffling (the order of questions changes each time the quiz is displayed).

注意:

Ensure that questions and question groups in a quiz never branch outside the quiz boundary.

Create question groups

Question groups are sets of questions you can use to create different subsets.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. Select the quiz to which you want to add a question group.

    注意:

    A single quiz can have multiple question groups.

  4. Click Add Question Group.
  5. Click the Settings tab.
  6. (Optional) Type a unique name for the question group. (Different questions groups can have the same name.)
  7. Type a number or use the menu   to specify a Subset Size. For example, if you have 10 questions, you can enter five, so five questions are shown each time the quiz appears.
  8. Type a number or use the menu   to specify a Default Score.
  9. (Optional) Select Shuffle Questions to change the order of questions each time the quiz is displayed.

    注意:

    Any non-question (content) slides between shuffled quiz questions are not displayed in the published presentation.

  10. (Optional) Click the Navigation tab to add branching. Enter a percentage range for specific actions. For example, if a user score is between 0–49% correct, then Action 1 takes place, and if the score is between 50–100% correct, then Action 2 takes place.
  11. Click OK.
  12. In the Quiz Manager, the new question group is listed. To add questions to the question group, select a question and drag it to the question group. Alternatively, select the question group in the Quiz Manager and click Add Question to add any question type.
  13. Click OK.

    注意:

    If you have a presentation containing quizzes that was created with an earlier version of PowerPoint, there is a fast way to add questions to a question group. In the Quiz Manager, select a quiz containing questions, click Edit, click Group Quiz Questions, choose options, and click OK. A default question group containing all questions in the quiz is created. (The Group Quiz Questions option is only available for quizzes that do not have any question groups.)

Set question shuffling

For a quiz, you can set questions to shuffle so they appear in a different order each time the presentation is opened. Different users receive the same questions, but in a different order.

Any non-question (content) slides located between shuffled quiz questions are not displayed in the published presentation.

If a user views a course on a Adobe Connect Server or learning management system, begins a quiz, does not complete the quiz, and then resumes, the quiz appears in the original order seen without shuffling again.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. Select a quiz and click Edit.
  4. Select Shuffle Questions.
  5. Click OK twice.

Set answer shuffling

For certain question types, the possible answers can be shuffled each time the question is displayed.

If a user views a course on a Adobe Connect Server or learning management system, begins a quiz, does not complete the quiz, and then resumes, the quiz appears in the original order seen without shuffling again.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Select an existing multiple choice, fill-in-the blank, or matching question and click Edit Question.
    • Create a new multiple choice, fill-in-the blank, or matching question.

    注意:

    For fill-in-the-blank questions, answer shuffling is applicable only to questions where the user selects an answer from a list, not where the user writes in their own answer.

  4. On the Question tab, select Shuffle Answers.
  5. Click OK.

注意:

This topic describes how to set answer shuffling for a specific question. To set answer shuffling at the quiz level so all eligible questions are shuffled, select a quiz in the Quiz Manager, click Edit, click the Quiz Settings tab, and select Shuffle answers.

Set reporting options

From an expert: Tin Can support in Presenter 9

From an expert: Tin Can support in Presenter 9
Learn how to report your quiz results to a Tin Can enabled server using Adobe Presenter 9.
Dr.Allen Partridge

Adobe Presenter offers reporting options for presentations with e‑learning elements. For example, you can create presentations that are SCORM, AICC, or Tin Can compliant for use within a learning management system.

Note: Adobe Presenter is Tin Can compliant from Version 9.

Reporting options, such as what data to collect and how the data is reported, are set for a course. You can, however, select whether to report interaction data to a learning management system at the quiz level. 

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz ribbon item, click Manage.

  3. In the Quiz Manager dialog box, click the Reporting tab.
  4. Select Enable Reporting For This Presentation.
  5. Select the main learning management system standard you want to use:
    • Adobe Adobe Connect
    • AICC. If you select AICC, four course structure files are created.
    • SCORM. If you select SCORM, click Manifest to set options for creating a manifest file, required by many third-party learning management systems. In the manifest dialog box, you can also select SCORM version 1.2 or 2004.
    • Tin Can
  6. Specify how you want the status of the course to be reported to LMS:

    Incomplete -- > Complete

    The status of the course is reported as Incomplete in LMS when users launch the course. The status changes to Complete when the success criteria is satisfied.

    Incomplete -- > Passed/Failed

    The status of the course is reported as Incomplete when users launch the course. The status changes to Passed/Failed when the success criteria is satisfied.

    注意:

    Status Representation fields are available only when you choose AICC or SCORM 1.2.

  7. Specify the success and completion criteria for your course. The status of the course is decided based on whether or not the users met these criteria:

    User Access

    The users are considered to have successfully completed the course if they launch the course from LMS.

    Slide Views

    The course is considered to be complete or successful if users view the specified number or percentage of slides.

    Tip: For branched quizzes, specify the criterion as percentage of slides.

    Quiz

    The course is considered to be complete or successful based on the users’ performance in quiz. You can choose one of the following criteria:

    • Users attempt the quiz: In this case, the status is reported as Complete if users attempt the quiz irrespective of whether they pass or fail the quiz.

    • Users pass the quiz: In this case, the status is reported as Complete only if users pass the quiz.

    • Users pass or the attempt limit is reached: In this case, the status is reported as Complete if users pass the quiz or have taken all the attempts. For example, if the number of attempts set in the course is 2, and:

      • Users take the first attempt and pass, then the status is reported as Complete and Passed.

      • Users take the first attempt and fail, then the status is reported as Incomplete and Failed as the attempt limit is still not reached.

      • If users retake the quiz and fail, the status is reported as Complete and Failed.

      • If users attempt the quiz again and pass, the status is reported as Complete and Passed.

    注意:

    SCORM 2004 supports two types of status: Success and Completion status. You can configure Adobe Presenter to send these two statuses to a SCORM 2004-based LMS separately. For example, criteria for Completion status can be ‘slide views 100%’ while Success criteria can be ‘quiz is passed’. See here, Step 5, to know about SCORM 2004 and usage of Exit Normally checkbox.

    Unlike SCORM 1.2, you can specify separate success and completion criteria for SCORM 2004.

  8. Specify how the data is to be reported to LMS:

    Quiz Score

    Report the quiz score as percentage or as points.

    Interaction Data

    Report user interaction data, for example, the question attempted by users, and the answer provided them.

  9. Click OK.

    注意:

    If your presentation includes a SWF file that contain a quiz created in Adobe Captivate, only user interaction data is reported for such quizzes. Both user interaction data and quiz scores are reported for quizzes that are directly created in Adobe Presenter.

Set a pass rate for a quiz

When you place quizzes in a presentation, you set a pass rate for users. The pass rate is a percentage or numeric value that users must reach in order to pass the quizzes. For example, setting a pass of 80% requires users to get 80% of the questions correct in order to pass.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. In the Quiz Manager, select a quiz and click Edit.
  4. Click the Pass Or Fail Options tab.
  5. Select a Pass Or Fail option:

    “#” % Or More Of Total Score To Pass

    Enter a percentage value that students must meet in order to pass. For example, if 100 is the maximum quiz score, then 80% means a score of 80 is required to pass.

    “#” Or More Of Total Score To Pass

    Enter a numeric value that students must meet in order to pass. For example, if you enter a value of 50, students must have a score of 50 or above to pass.

  6. Click OK.

Set score display

You can set the way the quiz score is reported to users.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. In the Quiz Manager dialog box, select a quiz and click Edit.
  4. Click the Quiz Settings tab.
  5. Select Show Score At End Of Quiz.
  6. Click Quiz Result Messages.
  7. Select a score option:

    Display Score

    Specifies that the numeric score is displayed.

    Display Percent Score

    Specifies that a score as a percentage of total is displayed.

    Tally Correct

    Specifies that a score in tally form (for example, “7 out of 10 correct”) is displayed.

  8. Click OK three times to close all of the dialog boxes.

  3. Click the Appearance tab.
  4. Change fonts (question, answer option, button text, and feedback message) and button placement as necessary.
  5. (Optional) Select Apply Formatting To All Existing Quizzes to apply the selected formatting to all questions in the quiz and to any questions added in the future. If this option is not selected, formatting is only applied to new questions added in the future.
  6. (Optional) To return to the original settings, click Restore Defaults.
  7. (Optional) After changing settings, click Save As to save the settings as a new Profile. Enter a new profile name and click OK.

Unanswered questions warning

When you create quizzes, a message appears to users if they try to leave the quiz boundary without attempting all of the questions.

For example, you have a quiz containing five questions that must be answered. If a user tries to navigate to a slide past the last question slide and they have not attempted all five questions, Adobe Presenter displays the message “There are unattempted questions in the quiz. Clicking Yes will take you out of the quiz. Click No to continue the quiz.”

Use presentations with a learning management system

Presentations created with Adobe Presenter integrate especially well with the Adobe Connect Server, but you can use Adobe Presenter presentations with any Learning Management System (LMS). If you are going to use a presentation with a third-party LMS, the following sections explain how to create a manifest file and how to customize LMS settings.

注意:

If you select the Adobe Connect Server or AICC option when setting reporting options, four AICC course structure files are created: presenter.au, presenter.crs, presenter.cst, and presenter.des. The files are created with default values, but the values can be edited manually. For more information, see the AICC website at www.aicc.org.

Creating a SCORM manifest file

If you want to package a Adobe Presenter presentation as an e‑learning course that can be administered and launched from a SCORM 1.2 or 2004 compliant learning management system, you may need a manifest file.

注意:

If you are publishing to Adobe Connect Server, a manifest file is automatically created named breeze-manifest.xml. This XML file is used to upload the presentation to the Adobe Connect Server. You do not need to follow the procedure in this topic to create a SCORM manifest file.

The manifest file that Adobe Presenter creates is named imsmanifest.xml and contains references to all content resources. The XML file uses predefined XML tags to describe the package components, structure, and special behaviors. The file works behind the scenes to properly integrate presentations with your learning management system and track quiz data.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. Click the Reporting tab.
  4. Select Enable Reporting For This Presentation.
  5. Under Learning Management System (LMS), select SCORM.
  6. Click Manifest.
  7. Set the SCORM Version by selecting 1.2 or 2004 from the pop‑up menu.
  8. Set the following manifest options:

    Identifier

    (Required) The LMS uses the identifier to identify different manifests. A default identifier based on the name of your Adobe Presenter presentation is automatically added to this text box. You can change the identifier at any time by selecting the text and typing in new text.

    Title

    (Required) Students using the LMS can see the title. You can change the title at any time by selecting the text and typing in new text.

    Description

    (Required) Text used by the LMS to describe different courses to users. You can edit the description at any time.

    Version

    (Optional) The version specifies a number that can be used to differentiate manifests with the same identifier.

    Duration

    (Optional) Select this option to specify the approximate time it takes to work with this particular Adobe Presenter presentation. Set the time in the following format: hh:mm:ss.

    Subject

    (Optional) Select this option to write a short description of the Adobe Presenter presentation using keywords or phrases.

    SCO Identifier

    (Required) The LMS uses the identifier to identify different shareable content objects (SCO). You can change the identifier at any time by selecting the text and typing in new text. (If you type the name of a new identifier, do not use any spaces in the name.)

    Title

    (Required) A title for the SCO. You can change the title at any time by selecting the text and typing in new text.

  9. Click OK.

    To see the manifest file, publish your Adobe Presenter presentation locally to create a SWF file and a manifest file. If you used the default save location, you can use Windows Explorer to navigate to the SWF file and imsmanifest.xml file in My Documents\My Presentations\Name of Presentation folder. If you published the presentation to a different folder, navigate to that location to see the manifest file.

Set advanced learning management system settings

Adobe Presenter offers several advanced settings for how presentations integrate with learning management systems (LMS). The settings let you specify what data is sent to the LMS and how the data is formatted. Typically, LMS administrators or advanced LMS users require the advanced settings.

注意:

Third-party learning management systems use the advanced settings; any advanced options set using this procedure do not affect the data sent from Adobe Presenter to Adobe Connect Server.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Quiz group, click Manage.
  3. Click the Reporting tab.
  4. Click AICC or SCORM, and then click Settings.
  5. In the LMS Customization Settings area, set the following options:

    Exit Normally

    Restarts the course from the first slide when users launch it again after successfully completing it once. If you select this option, the cmi.exit value is set to ‘Normal’ when the status changes to ‘Completed’.

    note: This behavior is consistent in SCORM 2004-based LMSs. On SCORM 1.2-based LMSs, the behavior may vary. For such cases, check with your LMS administrator for assistance.

    Never Send Resume Data

    Select this option to send no resume data to your LMS. This might be useful if your LMS does not support resume data or another mechanism to prevent users from returning to a quiz they started, but did not finish, across multiple sessions. For example, a user completes four questions out of eight and then closes the presentation. If you select this option, when the user opens the presentation again, they must provide answers to all eight questions—their answers from the first session are not remembered in the Adobe Presenter presentation. This option can be used when publishing and playing back content from any AICC- or SCORM-compliant learning management system.

    note: Presentations that are part of a Adobe Connect Server training course or curriculum are always automatically resumed. If the presentation is viewed using the Content tab, it is never resumed.

    Escape Version and Session ID

    This option is selected by default. Keep this option selected if you want Adobe Presenter to URL‑encode (escape) the version and session ID when sending data to an AICC-compliant learning management system. This is useful if your learning management system does not accept URL‑encoded information for these fields. Deselect this option if you do not want to URL‑encode (escape) the version and session ID.

    Don’t Escape Characters

    This option specifies that Adobe Presenter should not URL‑encode (escape) the value fields in parameters when data is sent to an AICC-compliant learning management system. In the text box, type the characters (without any delimiters such as spaces or commas) that the learning management system does not want escaped. For example, if the LMS does not want any numbers escaped, type 0123456789.

    Send Interval

    This option specifies how often slide data is sent to the LMS. As a user views a presentation, information is sent to the LMS. For regular slides, the LMS is notified that the user viewed the slide, and for question slides, information about the user response is sent to the LMS. Also, each time a slide is viewed, the LMS records the slide number so that if a user quits and then opens the presentation later, they user returns to the last slide. If you do not want information sent to the LMS for every slide in the presentation, you can change the Send Interval. For example, if you change the interval to 10, information is sent to the LMS every 10 slides.

    note: If you change the Send Interval to a number higher than 1, users who quit before finishing the presentation may not be able to resume where they left off. For example, if the Send Interval is changed to 10 and a user quits after viewing nine slides, when they open the presentation again, they start over at slide 1.
