An Easy Way to Create More Dynamic Feedback in Quizmaker

Written by Jeanette — Posted in Articulate Quizmaker

Have you checked out the blank slide feature in Articulate Quizmaker? Like the name implies, a blank slide gives you a wonderfully empty canvas on which you can build any content you want to augment your quiz.

Blank slides are especially useful when your question feedback is more robust than the standard feedback pop-ups allow. Rather than showing the usual pop-up, you can build customized feedback on a blank slide and branch learners there instead. Here’s a quick overview to show you how easy it is to add this to your course.

And here’s a super-easy twist on that method: by re-purposing objects from your question slide, you can create custom feedback that appears to be overlaid right on top of your question. This gives your feedback a seamless, consistent feel. You end up with an easy-to-make, custom-looking quiz that helps learners go in-depth on a topic.

Take a look at the feedback in the following four-question example:
