Quizmaker '13: Choosing the Number of Attempts for Graded Questions

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

By default, Articulate Quizmaker gives learners one attempt to answer each graded question in your quiz, but you can change that. Here's how to give learners more than one attempt for questions that they answer incorrectly.

Choosing the Number of Attempts for Individual Graded Questions

To change the number of attempts for a graded question, do any of the following:

  • In Question List View, click the number of Attempts to the right of any graded question, and select a value from the drop-down list that appears.
  • In Form View, go to the Home tab, and select a value from the Attempts drop-down.
  • In Slide View, select a value from the Attempts drop-down in the Question panel (on the right side of the screen).

NoteSurvey questions don't have right or wrong answers, so the number of attempts can't be changed.

Setting the Default Number of Attempts for New Graded Questions

You can change the default number of attempts for all new graded questions to save development time. Here's how:

  1. Switch to Question List View.
  2. Go to the Home tab, and click Quiz Properties.
  3. Select the Question Defaults tab on the left side of the window.
  4. Use the Attempts permitted drop-down to select a value.
  5. Click OK.

Tip: Existing questions in your quiz won't be affected when you change the default number of attempts, so it's a good idea to set your question defaults before adding any slides to your quiz. You can override the default number of attempts for any question by changing the Attempts value for that particular question (see above).
