Speedy, simplified authoring.

Get the intuitive tools you need to create engaging, media-rich assessments, quickly and easily.

Streamlined UI

The completely redesigned user interface in Articulate Quizmaker makes it even easier to create a quiz. With its streamlined workflow, you author quizzes in one window and quickly switch between questions using tabs.

Two Development Modes

Choose from two different development modes: form view and slide view. With form view, you just fill out a form to create a quiz. Switch to slide view to design your slide any way you want.


Add photographic and illustrated characters to your assessment right from the Quizmaker character library. Choose from up to 47,500 combinations of characters, expressions, and poses.


Import videos in virtually any format, including those you make in Articulate Replay. You can also record video from your webcam, or easily embed it from websites such as YouTube. And with the video editor in Quizmaker, you can easily crop and trim your video, adjust the volume, or add a watermark or logo.


Add narration and sound to your assessments by importing audio, or simply record it right in Quizmaker. And with the built-in editor, you can easily edit audio files—just click and drag on a visual of the track.

Web Objects

Easily embed visually rich web-based applications, games, videos, reference material, and other web content into your Quizmaker assessments.

Images and Objects

Insert or draw objects and images, then easily apply a wide range of effects, such as reflections, shadows, and glows. And once it’s perfect, instantly apply the effects to other objects with the format painter.

Animations and Transitions

Stylize your assessment with entrance and exit animations for images, shapes, characters, and even text. And apply transitions to make slides fade, dissolve, and more.


It’s simple to make sure objects, questions, and choices appear on your slide at the right time. You just drag items on the timeline to sequence them.


Create a compelling look for your assessments with a ready-made design theme—or build a theme of your own. Themes include coordinated color palettes and fonts that you can apply to a single question or an entire quiz.

Custom Slide Sizes

Go big or small, portrait or landscape. Your choice. Articulate Quizmaker ’13 supports custom quiz sizes.

Slide Masters

Save time by using slide masters to make design changes across multiple slides—all at once rather than one by one.

Assessments, any way you want

It’s a whole new world. It takes just minutes to create decision-making scenarios, drag-and-drop activities, quizzes, surveys, and more.

Animations and Transitions

Stylize your assessment with entrance and exit animations for images, shapes, characters, and even text. And apply transitions to make slides fade, dissolve, and more.

Freeform Questions

With the new freeform question types in Quizmaker, you can transform any object into an assessment. Just add objects to a slide in slide view, then use form view to quickly convert them into a pick-one or pick-many interaction.

25 Question Types

Rapidly create 25 different types of questions using the simplified form-based editor.

Question Import

You don’t have to start every assessment from scratch. You can use questions from a database or from your subject matter experts to build assessments. Just import them from an Excel or text file.

Question Pooling and Randomization

It’s simple to build groups of questions and import questions from other Quizmaker quizzes. And you can customise how questions are randomized when pulled from these pools.


Focus learners on the content they need the most. Take them to different slides depending on how they respond to real-life scenarios, remedial questions, and other assessments.

Customizable Feedback Layers

Use default feedback layers or customise them any way you want. You can add characters, images, or even multimedia—it’s up to you.

Customisable Results

Quizmaker makes it easy to customise results slides. In slide view, design the look of your results slide. Then in form view, choose options such as show learner score, show passing score, allow user to review quiz, and more.

Customised, unified

Create a better online learning environment with intuitive navigation, polished player customisations, and one set of controls.

Unified Player

All Articulate Studio ’13 products share a unified player. So if you add a Quizmaker assessment to your Articulate Presenter ’13 course, learners can easily navigate using a single set of controls.

Customisable Player

Frame your assessment perfectly with a customised player. Use a polished color scheme or create a custom look to match slide content or your brand guidelines. You also have control over player layouts, text labels and language, player controls, and more.

Customisable Navigation

Control how learners navigate your assessment. Let them submit one question at a time or all at once. And if they stop mid-assessment, you can even have them resume where they left off.

Reach more learners

Create your quiz once, then easily publish it for learners everywhere with just a few clicks.

Publish to Flash, HTML5, and Mobile
