In this activity, we’ll open the result slide and choose a result type.

  1. In Question List View, go to the Home tab on the ribbon and click Edit Result. The default result slide will open in Slide View where you can edit the design like any other slide in Quizmaker.
  2. Use the Result Slide Options panel on the right side of the screen to customize your quiz result slide.

Practice Activity: Add Content to the Base, Success, and Failure Layers

You can add any content to your result slide to convey the appropriate feedback, including text, images, characters, videos, audio, and web objects.

Base layer content will always show unless you specifically hide it on a feedback layer. But you can add different content to the success and failure layers to convey the appropriate feedback or provide follow-up instructions.

First, let’s add a background image to the base layer of the result slide.

  1. Select the base layer at the bottom of the Feedback Layers panel. It should be blank.
  2. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Picture.
  3. Select the mediaroom.jpg image in your practice files and click Open.
  4. Resize the image to fill the entire slide.

Next, let’s add a character to the success and failure layers.

  1. Select the Success layer in the Feedback Layers panel.
  2. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Character.
  3. Choose a character, expression, and pose that communicates success, then click Insert.
  4. Size and position the character where you want it on the feedback layer.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 for the Failure feedback layer and insert a character that communicates disappointment.
