With so much of Camtasia being customisable I think the only thing that lets it down is the Quiz option which isn't!! In future versions will it be possible to change things like the quiz window size, font etc etc? I find I am doing the bulk of the work in Camtasia but then linking to other 3rd party apps for my quiz which offer more flexibility.

Thanks for submitting this idea. Would you mind sharing more information about what you are doing with the quizzes, and what if any additional items you want to customize? What third party solutions are you using? This information will help us better understand what you are trying to accomplish. Why is customization important to you?

Hi Shane,

I'm using Articulate Quizmaker to produce the quiz (I realise that this is a dedicated quiz product and Camtasia isn't.) I'm producing training material with Camtasia and the trainees have to sit an informal quiz at the end of it. What I would like to see in Camtasia is a larger varity of quiz question to keep things fresh such as...

Image hotspots (click a picture of the CPU)
Multiple response (click the 4 choices that apply)
Match the words

It would also be nice if you could insert an image into the quiz (e.g the image below is a picture of a what) as well as a branch to question x option (this may be ahievable with multiple quizes and title clips on the timeline I guess?) Being able to award different points per question and having a passmark would also be nice.

Being able to change font size and colour coupled with being able to change the quiz window background and or its size means that I can apply my own style and branding to the quiz.

All of these are just nice to have and it may be the Camtasia can do most of this and I just haven't found it yet!

Thanks,

Dave.

There was a previous post in the Community about the quizzing feature in 8 doing away with feedback on the wrong answers. Please put correcting that on your radar...it is not an improvement, the ability to give feedback for incorrect answers was a valuable tool in 7.

I agree - there needs to be more customizability options in the quiz feature of Camtasia. I love the feel of the quiz, however I am frustrated that it takes up the whole screen. My questions are based on an image on the screen, asking users to answer based on what they see. Kind of pointless if they can't see what they are supposed to be answering on.

found the thread for the feedback option available in 7 and dropped from 8.

Hi - I created a quiz where the user needs to fill out their information (name and email address). After completing the quiz how quickly will it notify me that someone took the quiz? Is reporting done once a day or as soon as someone completes the quiz?

Hi Don, All new replies from the last 24 hours are appended to prior replies and sent in one email, once per day. I live in the GMT -5:00 (Eastern Time) zone and I get my quiz results at 9 pm. If no one answers your quiz that day, you do not get an email that night.
