Applicable to: iSpring Suite 11, Presenter 11

When you have a quiz as a part of a learning course (or a presentation), your learners can freely navigate through the slide with a quiz. They can do that using the Outline or the Progress bar even though the Next and Previous buttons, and the Progress Bar are not there.

However, some learners may want to skip a quiz or do that by accident. In this article, we'll show you a way to prevent this and make your quizzes unskippable.

How to remove Skip and Back buttons on Quizzes

How to remove the option to skip the Quiz

1. Open the Slide Properties menu by clicking on the button on the iSpring toolbar.

2. Find the slide with a quiz and point your mouse where it says Quiz in the right column. Then select Properties in the dropdown list.

The View slides after the 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 learner could freely skip the Quiz using Outline.

Other options will limit navigation

It means that if a user clicks on the Outline to see the next slide, this action can’t be completed and the respective message will be shown.

  • If you set After attempting quiz, the learner can advance to the next slides once the quiz is finished, but not necessarily passed.

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

Note: This would only be triggered if they access the slide with the quiz first, while “View slides after quiz” settings work even if the user did not visit the slide with the quiz.

If a slide has a quiz, these buttons will be removed till the quiz is finished, and  the quiz will have the Submit button added instead.
