Quizmaker ’09 lets you easily customize the look and features of your quiz player. With Player Templates, you can modify how the player looks and choose which features you want available in your quizzes and surveys.

Quizmaker ’09 comes with 4 pre-configured player templates:

  • Quiz - Submit one at a time (default)
  • Quiz - Submit all at once
  • Survey
  • Branched Scenario

If, after selecting one of the default templates, you make custom configurations to the template and click the OK button, you will be prompted with a message asking if you want to save your configuration changes.

If you want to save your configuration changes, click Yes and, when prompted, enter a name for the new template and click OK. This is to avoid overwriting the default template.
