Quizmaker '13: Working with Feedback Layers

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

If you've enabled feedback in Articulate Quizmaker, it'll display on feedback layers in your quiz. When learners submit each question, a feedback layer will overlay the content of the question to show them how they performed.

Editing Feedback Layers

In Slide View, click any layer in the Feedback Layers panel in the lower right corner of the screen to display it. If the Feedback Layers panel is collapsed, click its title bar to expand it.

Design each feedback layer with text, images, audio, video, and any other resources you want to use—just as you would design the base layer of a slide.

Using the Feedback Master for Consistent Design

To ensure that feedback layers throughout your quiz have the same design, edit the feedback master. (Tip: Any changes you make to a feedback layer in your quiz will override the feedback master.)

To apply a different layout from the feedback master to a feedback layer for a question slide, do the following:

  1. In Slide View, select the feedback layer you want to edit.
  2. Then right-click the slide workspace, scroll to Layout, and choose a layout.

Adding Transitions to Feedback Layers

You can add transitions to feedback layers just like slides. Here's how:

  1. In Slide View, select the feedback layer you want to edit.
  2. Go to the Animations tab on the Quizmaker ribbon.
  3. Choose a transition and a speed for the transition.
  4. If you want to apply the same transition to all the other feedback layers for the current slide, click Apply To All.

To learn more about transitions, see this tutorial.

Hiding Base Layer Objects

Want to hide objects from the base layer of the slide when the feedback layer is displayed? Easy. Do the following:

  1. Select the feedback layer you want to edit.
  2. Open the timeline if it's not already visible.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the timeline, and click the triangle in front of Base Layer Objects. This reveals all the objects that are located on the base layer of the slide.
  4. Click the eye icon beside any object to hide it.

To learn more about the timeline, see this tutorial.

Renaming Feedback Layers

To change the name of a feedback layer, do the following:

  1. Double click the name of a feedback layer to open it for editing.
  2. Type the new name.
  3. Press the Enter key on your keyboard to save the change.

Hiding and Unhiding Feedback Layers

By default, feedback layers are invisible while you're working with the base layer of your slide. They become visible when you click them.

If you need to display more than one feedback layer at the same time (for example, you might need to align objects the same way on different layers), click the eye icon in front of each layer that you want to show. Click it again to hide that layer.
