QUIZZING USERS PAGE:
 

 

When the quiz is selected by the participant, the platform loads a title screen with the quiz title on the top, the thumbnail associated with the session, and a brief summary of the number of questions along with the required percentage score to pass (if scoring was set up prior to publishing).

Upon clicking “Start,” the first quiz slide will appear. In this case, it’s a multiple-choice question:

 

 

Clicking the answer will animate the selected answer and then progress to the next question. The navigation only lets users move to slides they have already answered, so from here they can go back to a previous question but not forward. The arrows will be greyed out when they are unavailable.

 

 

As users progress through the quiz, their progress is updated to the % of slides they’ve answered. Clicking back will allow users to return to the previous slide and change or review their answer. The arrows will change color according to whether or not they are available to click.

 

 

Once all questions have been answered, the “Submit” screen asks if users are ready to submit their answers. Users have the option to review the quiz, which will take them to the first question slide with their answers already selected, or navigate to the next slide by selecting an answer again or clicking the navigation arrows. Clicking the previous arrows allows users to review their answers.

On the final submission slide, users can click the “Submit” button to enter their answers and receive their score.

 

 

This slide will show the score and whether a user passed or failed based on the passing score set in the admin section. Users will have the option to retake the quiz which will bring them to the first quiz slide. Clicking the “Go to Next Session” button will take users to the next session in the course.
