Video: Using remediation

When it comes to quizzing here in Captivate 6, one of the coolest new features is called remediation. This allows you to direct your users, if they answer a question incorrectly, to a slide containing the content which they can review, and then return to the quiz to hopefully answer it correctly the second time around. We're going to explore this now with our Volunteer Orientation project that we've been working on. Now, here on 26 we do see our first question, and we see the default buttons, including a Submit All button.

Using remediation

When it comes to quizzing here in Captivate 6, one of the coolest new features is called remediation. This allows you to direct your users, if they answer a question incorrectly, to a slide containing the content which they can review, and then return to the quiz to hopefully answer it correctly the second time around. We're going to explore this now with our Volunteer Orientation project that we've been working on. Now, here on 26 we do see our first question, and we see the default buttons, including a Submit All button.

We have it set up so that the Submit All button will submit all of the answers simultaneously, as opposed to one at a time. This won't work with remediation, so we need to go up to the Quiz Properties first, down to Quiz Preferences, and change that by deselecting it in the Settings section under Quiz here. There it is; Submit All. We'll deselect that, and when we click OK, we'll see some slight changes to our slides. For one, we won't see a Submit All button anymore. We're going to see a Submit button. We'll also see some captions letting users know when they answer questions incorrectly, or correctly, and you can choose to turn those on or off from the Quiz Properties.

We'll leave all the defaults as is, and focus on remediation here. So with our slide selected -- no particular object on the slide -- let's go to those Quiz Properties. When we click the tab, you'll notice that we do have, under Options, there's the Correct and Incomplete captions that will show up. So we could turn those off if we wanted to, but we're going to focus on action here. When we get a right answer, it's going to continue on to the next slide. Great. What happens if we get it wrong? Notice, it's also a defaulting to continue.

We don't want it to do that. Here's where remediation comes in. We click the dropdown, and then we choose to go directly back to a specific slide by choosing Jump to Slide. Which slide? Well we can now click the dropdown for the slide, and it's the History and Purpose slide that we want users to go back to, to find the right answer. We'll select it, and we are part way there. What happens when they do get back to slide 3? We don't need them to go through all of the slides to get to the quiz again.

So we'll want them to jump back to the quiz, and the appropriate question, when they're done reviewing. So we have a little bit of work to do on slide 3. Let's scroll all the way up, and select slide 3. Here we're going to look at the properties for this slide, and you'll notice there is a click box covering the entire slide; a default that happens when we import slides from PowerPoint. This is what we want to customize. So we'll click anywhere on the slide. Notice it's Click Box properties we're looking at now, and as we go into the Action section, when we click it, we're going to go to the next slide.

But that's only if we're viewing it the first time. What if we go to the quiz, and jump back to this slide? Well, in that case, we want to change the action by clicking the dropdown to Return to Quiz. Now, it looks like that's the new default; not really so. The first time our users go through our presentation here, they will automatically go to the next slide. It's only when they start the quiz, and come back to this slide will clicking the click box take them back to the quiz.

So the only way to really see this in action is to preview it. That's what we're going to do now, but we need to preview from the beginning for this preview to work. So let's go to slide 1; we'll go to the preview. Personally, I like to see it in the Web browser, because I can zoom out a little bit, and have control over what I'm seeing. So I'm going to choose Web Browser; mine is Safari. It's going to boot up here with my preview momentarily. Okay, a little sound effect.

When we click the View menu, we can Zoom Out. We can also use the keyboard shortcut. I'm going to do it twice to zoom out to the appropriate level. There's my Go to Quiz button. Luckily, we have this. We don't have to go through every slide to get to the quiz. We can go directly to it from here. Now we can click Take the Quiz Now, and there is our first question. So we know what the right answer is. Let's choose a wrong answer. I'm going to go with C, 1974, and click Submit. Well, there's a caption saying I'm wrong.

I can click anywhere on the screen, or press the letter Y in the keyboard to continue. When I do, watch what happens. Back we go to slide 3. There's the right answer. Now when I click, I won't go to the next slide. I'll go back to my quiz, where I can choose the right answer, and click Submit. Now I see a correct answer caption, and when I click anywhere on my screen to continue, it will take a couple of seconds before moving on to the next question. So we can close up our browser, or just simply switch back to Captivate, and that's how remediation works here in Captivate 6.
