Edit Quiz Properties

Adjust the properties of your exported quizzes and identify them with title and ID information, restrict access, design their introductory screens, specify how they'll run and report results, and determine what happens when an end-user completes them.

General
Give your quiz a unique title and ID number so that it can be readily identified among a large number of quizzes. Set a passing grade and if you want to make a quiz timed, you can have your exported quiz stop when its time limit has expired.

Login
Prompt end users for a username or id number and a password to restrict access to your exported quizzes. If you need your end users to log in on the internet, tell Quiz Builder the URL of the login page and Quiz Builder will send the appropriate parameters to your server script (php, asp.etc.).

Introduction
Design an introductory screen for your exported quiz. Introduce your quiz with instructions. To show a picture along with your instructions, load an image from your hard drive or take a screenshot of an image on your screen.

Questions
Specify the way your quizzes will run. For example, you can have your quiz ask all of its questions at one time, ask one AT a time - or just ask some of them! You can even randomize the order of your questions and offer end users 15 minute breaks.

Reporting
Specify the way your quiz will report its results. Quiz Builder supports AICC and SCORM reporting. If you want your exported quiz to send its results to a specific URL, you can point Quiz Builder to your own Server Script (php, asp, perl, etc).
