      Do you have any experience in creating a bit more sofisticated Quizes with Adobe Captivate?
      For example I would love to assign "topic" to each quastion and then evaluate at the end by the topic. If there is 100 questions on Capitals, I would love to tell the person at the end that he/she passed with 70%, but also that Europe was 95%, but Africa was only 45%.
      Do you know how to use questions more often, which were previously wrongly answered? And any idea, how to limit for example 50 questions by 1 hour?

      Thank you,

          Hi Martin and welcome to the Captivate forums!

          Unfortunately, quizzes in Captivate aren't very sophisticated. The scoring mechanism is pretty much all or nothing. You can tell the user they passed a given quiz with 70%, but there's no way to group the results into smaller chunks.

          Captivate is really meant to report basic scores back to a Learning Management System, where more advanced reporting capability is typically found. In a perfect scenario, you would use Captivate to design a series of smaller quizzes for each continent with each quiz showing the user their "topic-level" score, then have the LMS aggregate those results into an overall score... the 70% total in your example. But that's just hypothetical unless you have an LMS that supports such a thing.

          As for a time limit, you can *sort of* limit the time in a quiz by assigning a maximum time to each question slide. For example, limiting 50 questions to 1 hour means you'd limit each question to roughly 1 minute.

          It's not very flexible, and the timing option is only available with the built-in question slides, but that's pretty much as good as it gets in Captivate.
