During one of my recent beginner Adobe Captivate classes, a student asked if it was possible to maintain two quizzes within a single Captivate project. She wanted to be able to give her learners a pretest made up of questions that would run independently of the regular quiz. While it is not possible to have two independent quizzes within a project, she was happy to learn that you can include a Pretest.
Choose Quiz > Pretest Question Slide and you'll be presented with pretty much the same Insert Questions dialog box that you will see when you insert standard Question Slides.
Select the type of question you like, and the number of slides you want. In the image below, I've selected Multiple Choice and True/False and then set the number of each to one.
Once the Pretest Question slides have been inserted within the project, they will behave just like standard Question Slides, with a few notable differences.
First, there will not be a Question Slide progress indicator on any of the Pretest Question slides. In the image below, you can see the progress indicator that's on the first standard Question Slide in my project. (I have two Question Slides and two Pretest Question Slides.)
When the learner takes the Pretest, the answers they submit will not be counted in the final quiz score. However, if you want to ensure a learner understands a concept before allowing them to take the quiz, you can set it up so that the score a learner gets on the Pretest triggers an Action (such as taking the learner back to the beginning of the lesson for more study).
On the Quiz Properties panel, you'll also notice that there is an Edit Pretest Action button for any selected Pretest Question slide. Clicking that button will open the Advanced Actions dialog box. If you're comfortable with Advanced Actions, you could create an Action that would kick in should the learner not perform well on the Pretest.
If you would like to see a demonstration of the Pretest feature, check out the video I posted to the IconLogic YouTube channel.
