One of the great new features in Captivate 5.5 is its new quizzing engine. While this may not be apparent to you as you're designing a quiz, it will be very apparent to the folks who are taking your quizzes. Let's take a look at what a quiz looks like when it's been published from Captivate 5.5. This quiz is pre-built and in fact, it's a quiz that came from the Captivate 5. A very important thing to note is that when you open a Captivate file from a previous version and then you publish from Captivate 5.5, the quizzes will take on the new feature set.
Let's see what that looks like now. Go ahead to slide number six and then we'll preview from here. An amaryllis happens to be a bulb, so I'm going to choose bulb. Previously in Captivate we have to click on the radial button to the left of the answer. Now you can click anywhere on the answer and it's going to select that choice. I know it's a bulb but I want to choose the wrong answer. Why will be apparent in a little while. Let's choose Submit to go on. Removing green foliage in fact will not harm the amaryllis.
You can see I have the whole answer selectable. I need to type a short answer, hmm! I don't remember. How about Billy? It's wrong. I know it's wrong. This is a question from a question pool. This answer happens to be true I think, but I can't remember. We'll just pick True and see what happens. Looks like I got it right. Then the last question is a rating scale question, so we'll pick Somewhat Agree. Now that we're at the end of the quiz we're able to review the quiz. Oh! I failed it.
Well, let's go Review and find out what we did wrong, and this is another of the great quiz features that's built into Captivate 5.5. Captivate veterans are looking at this going, wow! Where has this been all my life? The correct answer is very clearly indicated on this frame. My choice, evergreen, was wrong so have a red X next to my choice. I know that I got the question wrong because there's a giant red X to the upper left-hand corner of the question. If I get the question right, I'll have the different indicator.
Here I got this question right, so I see a great big checkbox. This one I got wrong and it tells me the correct answers are either kitchen or sharp. Got that one right. And then lastly of course, this is a rating scale so there happens to be no correct answer. And now we got to the end. We haven't had to do anything special to get these new features inside of Captivate. They just happen when you publish your quiz. If you got existing quizzes from previous versions, go ahead and open them in Captivate 5.5 and then save those quizzes to be able to take advantage of the new features. Your learners will appreciate that effort.
