Slides are the backbone of many different types of Quizzes and Modules in your Axis system. They take on primarily two different forms: Inquisitive and Informative.
For each question you must denote one (and only one) correct answer. You can indicate which answer is the correct answer by prefixing that answer choice with the following string [*]. So if "Answer A" was the correct answer, it would look like this "[*]Answer A" in your import file.
Once you have your question formatted into the proper format you can then import them into the System. Here's how you would complete the import process.
- Copy the contents of your formatted question file and paste it directly into the Question Text File area (make sure when doing this that you have word-wrap disabled in your text-editor and that the last question has all 11 lines, meaning leave two blank lines after the last questions' explanation).
- Click on the Validate button located directly below the Question Text File field to check each question to make sure it has 11 lines and that each question has one correct answer indicated.
- Select (or manually enter) the category that you would like to import the questions into. When you're importing questions all of the questions that are brought into the system during an import must go into the same category.
- If you would like to shuffle the order in which the answers are displayed to your users each time they view the questions leave the box next to Shuffle Answer Order for Imported Questions checked; otherwise uncheck this box.
- Click the Import Questions button to import your questions into the system.
After importing the questions, you can use the Slide Editor to make any changes you weren’t able to before your import.
If you are creating Slides on the fly, they’re likely being placed into ungrouped Slide Categories - which is fine but can become a headache to manage as your Slide Library expands. Using Master and Sub Categories, you can break down larger Categories ["Workplace Safety”] into smaller Categories ones ["Fire Prevention”, "Electrical Safety”, etc.]
The biggest benefit of Master & Sub Categories, is that you can call on either of them whenever you would usually reference just one. A common example is when you're using Wizard Blocks.
Using Master & Sub Categories, you can create multiple wizard blocks calling any of the Categories: "Select 5 questions Randomly from Fire Prevention”; "Select All questions Randomly from Electrical Safety”.
Or, you can add one Wizard Block to select from all categories beneath a Master: "Select 20 Questions Randomly from Workplace Safety."
To create Master and Sub Categories..
Moving Slide Categories
- Select Master / Sub Categories from your Slide Bank icon
- Add Master
- Add & Close
- Select your new Category from the menu on the Left
- Add Sub
- Add & Continue
If your slide Library has amassed too many categories, you may want to consolidating those categories.You can accomplish this by using the Move tool, to merge similar groups of slides. To start off the moving process, you'll first need a destination category. You can either use an existing category, or you can create a new category using the Master / Sub Categories.
Once you've staged the destination category, you'll want to use the Move tool from your Slides area. The Move tool is extremely simple to use; select the old category to move slides from, then select the new category to move them to.
If the move was successful, you will see an alert at the top of your browser saying so. After this transition, you will need to alter any Wizard Blocks you created to draw questions from the new destination category (read more in the Republishing Article).
When you create a Wizard block you have the option to either shuffle questions from a category, or to deliver them in sequence. Many admins choose to shuffle these questions, because they aren't aware that their slides even have a Sequence; or that that sequence is adjustable.
To change the order a category of slides will appear in sequence, open up your Slide Bank, and select a Category of slides to work with.
After the category list populates, you should see the type of slide, its ID, and an input for the slide’s sequence. Overwrite the sequence with any numeric value, and click the Reorder button to save your new Slide Sequence. Now you’ll know the Slide Sequence whenever you use a Wizard blocks in your modules.
Because of how users progress through Non-Graded module types, only the following slide types may be used when creating Non-Graded quizzes.
- Multi-Option (one right answer)
- True / False
- Yes / No
In addition, Non-Graded module types are the only modules capable of utilizing Immediate Feedback responses (user receives a notification as soon as they answer a question, rather than when they complete the quiz).
