A quiz is an excellent way to test the users who are going through your eLearning courses. Adding quizzes to a project in Captivate is easy. Add a Question slide, put your question and answer into the slide, and Captivate does everything else for you. It even puts a quiz results slide at the end. In this document, we will step through the different question types supported by Captivate.

Assets and samples

The procedures in this document require you to use assets such as images and sample Adobe Captivate project files. You can choose to use your own assets and samples. However, it is recommended that you download and extract the following zip file to your computer:

Add True / False questions

True / False questions are probably the easiest question types to create in an eLearning tutorial so let's get started with one of them.

Let's add a True / False question to a project.

  1. In the downloaded files folder, navigate to the samples subfolder and open:

    create-quizzes.cptx

    Megjegyzés:

    It is not mandatory that you download the project file that ships with this tutorial. You can still follow along with the steps in this procedure. However, you will need to create a new project in Captivate.

  2. In the Filmstrip, select the slide titled Summary.

    We are going to add the question after this slide.

  3. In the toolbar, click Slides and choose Question Slide.

  4. In the Insert Questions dialog box, select the True/False checkbox and click OK.

    A question slide is inserted after the slide title Summary.

    You cannot create Responsive projects with Adobe Captivate.

  6. In the choices, select False.

Megjegyzés:

In the Edit menu, choose Preferences, and then go Pass or Fail.

Let's preview the procedure we completed.

In the toolbar, click Preview and then choose Project.

When you reach the question, pick an answer (true or false). Captivate will check your answer and give you the results in the Quiz Results slide.

Add Multiple Choice questions

Multiple choice questions are of two types:

  • Pick only one correct answer.
  • Pick all possible correct answers.

Captivate makes it easy to decide what type of multiple choice question it is that you want to create.

Let's create two multiple choice questions, one for each of the above types.

  1. In the downloaded files folder, navigate to the samples subfolder and open:

    create-quizzes.cptx

    Megjegyzés:

    It is not mandatory that you download the project file that ships with this tutorial. You can still follow along with the steps in this procedure. However, you will need to create a new project in Captivate.

  6. Navigate to the first question slide, and enter the following question in the text area (overwriting the placeholder text):

    Which option in the menu allows you to create rectangular shapes in Captivate?

    By default, Captivate adds placeholders for two choices. Let's add two more placeholders to provide the user with four choices.

  7. To open the Properties Inspector, click Properties in the right corner of the toolbar and then go to the Quiz Inspector.

    Which of the following are types of Captivate projects that you can create?

    Pick all that apply.

If the choices for a question are too obvious, fill-in-the-blank is another method to check user input.

Let's add a fill-in-the-blank question to our project.

  1. In the downloaded files folder, navigate to the samples subfolder and open:

    create-quizzes.cptx

    Megjegyzés:

    Use the Themes option in the toolbar to change the overall appearance of your Captivate project.

    When the project is displayed to users, we need to hide Themes and ask users to fill in that blank.

  6. Select the entire word Themes in the slide.

  7. To open the Properties Inspector, click Properties in the right corner of the toolbar and then go to the Quiz Inspector.

    quiz-inspector

    Notice that the word Themes is now underlined. It indicates that the word Themes will appear as blank for users to fill in.

    We can also apply a few settings to the word. Let's do that.

  9. Click the word Themes.

    The following pop-up box is displayed:

    fitb_settings_box

    Let's provide some flexibility for the user input.

  10. Right now, if the user enters any other word except exactly Themes, the answer is marked as incorrect. To accept other words as correct responses, use the + in the upper-right corner and add more correct words or even phrases:

    Click + and enter Theme

    Click + and enter Theme button
