The Hotspot question is an excellent way to add more interactivity to your Quizmaker quizzes. Let’s say that we are adding another question to your wildlife quiz we built yesterday. This time, though, we are not testing size, but rather we want to know if our users can correctly identify the clown fish, given three different animals.
The first step we need to do is open Quizmaker and then select New Quiz:
Now, you need to name your Quizmaker Quiz. For this example I named it Hotspot Quiz. Once you have named your quiz, select the Next button and then the Begin button:
You are now in the main Quizmaker program interface where you can add questions, set the quiz properties, etc. I want to add a Hotspot question, so I will click the Add Graded Question and then select the Hotspot option:
The Hotspot question interface will open and can easily be completed in a few short steps. First, we enter the question text in the text box provided:
Next, we click on Create Hotspot:
Once inserted, you will see the image and will be prompted to draw a rectangle over the correct area. What you are being asked to do is to draw a rectangle over the "correct" portion of the image:
As you can see below, I have drawn the rectangle over the clown fish. Once you have correctly drawn the rectangle, click the OK button:
You will now be taken back to the question interface and you are done. Simply click OK and your Hotspot question is complete!
