Quizzing in Captivate 5
The article quickly describes what’s new in Quizzing of Captivate 5. Also how it makes the life of both a quiz maker and quiz taker easier, quicker and simpler.
Insert multiple questions at a time
Quiz -> Question Slide… menu opens an insert question dialog. In Captivate 4, I could have inserted only 1 question at a time. The dialog needs to be invoked as many times as many questions were to be inserted. On the better hand, insert question dialog of Captivate 5 allows me to insert 1 graded MCQ, 2 survey FIBs, 10 graded matching questions and 1 likert question or any such combination in a single OK click.
Insert multiple Random questions linked to a pool
I can also add Random question slides (along with the above questions) from the same dialog. Not only this, at the time of insertion I can link these random questions to any one of the already created question pools.
Select and Edit quiz properties of Multiple Questions
I can now select the 10 matching questions and edit the number of entries in both the columns in the common PI. The number of entries in both columns gets updated for all the matching questions. Similarly, all the graded questions can be selected together and there on success action can be set in one go from Quiz Properties panel. Here follows a quick demo-
Inline blanks in FIB
Both user input and dropdown blanks in Fill in the Blank questions are now shown in line at runtime. They are no more numbered and placed at the end of the sentence.
Dropdown and drag-drop as default options in Matching Question
All the matching questions by default have both drag drop and dropdown options at runtime. While creating the quiz I need not choose one of the two options. And while taking the quiz I can opt for any of the two.
Add Questions to linked pool from Random Question PI
If I have first inserted a random question slide and then I want to add questions to the linked pool. There is no more a need to launch question pool manager or go to question pool view. A click on Add questions button in random question slide PI (Quiz Properties) can do this for me.
Wish you a very happy new year and happy working with Captivate!!
