Note: This blog entry applies to Quizmaker 2.02. There is a known issue in Quizmaker 2.03 that prevents HTML from being used in question feedback.
One of Articulate Quizmaker‘s many powerful features is the ability to provide your users with feedback on a per-question basis (you can even provide per-answer feedback for multiple-choice questions). But what if you want to do more than give your users a few lines of text feedback?
Here’s how to integrate HTML into your question feedback and engage your users even more, or link them to external Web sites for additional reference material:
- Create your quiz as you would normally do.
- Select Question Level or Answer Level feedback and click … to specify your feedback.
- In the feedback window, enter any supported HTML* you’d like to include along with your feedback text.
In the above example, I’ve highlighted the HTML. Note that the “correct” feedback includes a bold tag (<b>) along with a link (<a href=…>). The “incorrect” feedback includes a link along with the italics tag (<i>).
Note: Be sure to include target=”_blank” in your a href tag to ensure the link opens in a new window — unless, of course, you want the link to open in the same window as the quiz itself.
* HTML tags supported by Flash 6, which Articulate Presenter generates, include the following:
<FONT> attributes = ‘face’, ‘size’, ‘color’
<TEXTFORMAT> attributes = ‘leftmargin’, ‘rightmargin’, blockindent’, ‘indent’, ‘leading’, ‘tabstops’
Any other tags will be ignored by the Articulate Player.
