Quiz Properties explained

The Quiz Properties are accessible only via the Presentation Explorer tool.

Default options in the Quiz Properties window:

The View slides after quiz settings group is related to all slides subsequent to the current quiz. In this example there is only one slide that goes after the quiz.

If you select At any time, the Skip Quiz button will be added on the quiz, so the learner can freely skip it.

  • If you select the After passing quiz option, the learner can’t see the next slides until the quiz is successfully passed.

Branching Options explained

The Branching options can be accessed in the Presentation Explorer tool. Branching works both for regular slides and for slides with quizzes.

If a slide has a quiz, these buttons will be removed, but the quiz will have Back and Skip Quiz buttons added instead.

Defaults in the Branching Options window:

If you set None for Backward branching, the Quiz won’t have the Back button added.
