In this lesson we're going to talk about quizzing with Captivate. Quizzing is a way to determine whether or not the person who is watching your program has learned some information and can let you know that they've learned that information. There are many different ways of asking questions in Captivate and you may be familiar with many of them from when you were in school. A quick look at the Quiz menu reveals that there are several different types of questions slides. Open the Quiz menu and choose Question Slide. There are many different types of questions we can insert and we'll be looking at those in detail in the question types lesson.
For now, I just want you to know that we can insert one or more different types of questions into our quiz. An important aspect of a quiz is that it's expected to report somewhere. As a person takes a quiz, they'll either get right or wrong answers. In most cases, someone wants to know whether or not the person who took that quiz actually understood the information and was able to answer the questions correctly. That process is called reporting to a learning management system.
We'll look at learning management systems in another chapter. In order to understand the results of the quiz, it's important that all of the parts of the quiz have names that you can understand. This means that the quiz itself needs a name that you can interpret, as well as all of the questions. In this example file that we'll be using, I've attached names to almost all of the elements that are going to be used inside of the presentation. This example file doesn't even have any quiz elements in it yet.
When you're dealing with quizzes ,however, it's best to be thorough to avoid confusion. We're going to be building a quiz that follows our brief Amaryllis Training video that we built in an earlier lesson. We'll set up the quiz itself in the next lesson.
