Hello. I am a fairly green Captivate user so please bear with me.
I created a quiz and did not utilise the quiz templates. I used shapes as buttons and assigned a score. Is it possible to show the correct answers when users review the quiz? Either highlighting the correct answer (border shape) or by making a check mark (image) visible.
Not out of the box, sorry. You'll have to create that Review mode yourself, if you want it. That means using advanced or shared actions and variables.
Why did you not use the quizzing master slides? Those slides have a lot of functionality built in, one of them being that automatic Review mode when using the review button on the Score slide.
Thank you Lilybiri. I was having trouble editing the quiz masters so I thought of just creating a custom quiz.
"That means using advanced or shared actions and variables."
> How does this work please?
Also how can I shuffle the questions and/or the answers please.
May I recommend to use the default quiz slides, please. What you are asking is really advanced stuff, try first to master the basics of Captivate, it would spare you a lot of frustrations. You try to win a marathon before starting training to run.
Shuffling answers is another feature which you get free with default quiz slides, and would ask for a combination of JS (random numbers) with advanced actions to realize for custom questions. Have plenty of use cases on my blog, but really don't recommend it to a newbie. I will be happy to help you with editing the quizzing master slides, if you tell me what you want to do. Do not delete any embedded object (have no individual timeline in the master slide, nor in quiz slides). Styles of most objects can be edited and saved.
Lot of of functionality is built in the quiz and score slides of Captivate. Try to understand that functionality, and the way themes are built (which include the master slides) in Captivate. Some reading about quizzes:
Question Question Slides in Captivate - Captivate blog in CP9, the confusion between Skip and Next no longer exists, I will upgrage that post ASAP
Thank you and I appreciate your sentiments. I did not realise it was that advanced.

>> Can I shuffle the questions too?
Not per se. But you can insert quiz question slides into one or more Question Pools and then insert Random Quiz slides in your project that draw from specific pools. If you have ten quiz slides in the same pool and ten Random Quiz slides that all draw from the same pool then the order of quiz questions encountered by the learner will be randomised when the module is launched. But after that point, the questions remain in that order for the duration of the learner's session.
Thank you! That worked perfectly.
EDIT: Is there a way to keep track of a user's answer to each of the quiz questions? Like if I had a team and I wanted to know their answer for each of question, will I be able to do that?
You would need to create user variables, one per question. After each question you have to store the value of the quizzing system variable cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice in that user variable.
More about that variable in: Secrets of cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice and.... - Captivate blog
Thank you Lilybiri!
Is there supposed to be a video on the link you provided? I cannot it.
I never have passive video in my blog posts, only interactive tutorials since they talk about an eLearning authoring tool to provide that type of tutorials. You need a Flash-enabled browser, that post was in the Flash only output time.
Video is not what I would label as a very efficient tool to show the result of Captivate. But most disagree, video is so much easier to create of course, takes lot less time.
Thank you Lilybiri.
Here is a hack that I use. It's late, but the hack does save you from other workarounds. Note, this is for CP8. Haven't tried it in newer versions.:
Sorry but that is unnecessary cumbersom/ Once you have at least one scored object, need not be a quiz slide, in the project, you can add the Results Slide from Quiz Preferences. No need at all to add a quiz slide.
I always prefer KISS solutions.
