What is a Powerpoint Quiz and how does it work. Firstly let me explain what Powerpoint is and what it is used for. Microsoft PowerPoint is included within the Microsoft Office Suite of programs which include others such as MS Word and Excel. As Powerpoint has developed over the years it has offered more and more functions and options.
Powerpoint is a powerful presentation program that enables users to create exciting dynamic slide presentations. These presentations can include animation, videos, images, and much more. Historically, it has been mainly used for business and school presentations. Powerpoint has become the most popular presentation software program and is seen as the "standard" although there are alternatives including Apple's Keynote and Google's Slides program. A presentation designed on Powerpoint is likely to work on Keynote and Slides although often it loses part of its functionality. Powerpoint offers a great number of options such as different slide transitions, animations, layouts, templates and much more. Powerpoint requires a certain amount of training to become competent at building slide presentations but is relatively easy to operate once you know the basics. Running a presentation is fairly simple as it usually just requires a mouse click to advance the slides or to run through the animations on each slide. The animations and slide transitions however can be automated with different timings between each so that a slide presentation can be started and the presenter merely needs to sit back and do hi or her talk whilst the slide presentation runs.
The program lends itself perfectly to the operation of a Powerpoint Quiz. As an example, ten quiz questions can be included on a single slide with each question being a separate element and able to be animated into the presentation with the click of a mouse. Our Powerpoint quizzes include a separate slide for each answer with a picture, or sometimes a video being included as evidence, which as well as making the presentation more interesting, also cuts down the number of disputes over whether the answer is correct or not.
As we have now been writing and presenting a Powerpoint Quiz for in excess of three years we have fantastic variety of quizzes available. These included themed quizzes on subjects such as the Olympics, James Bond and the Friends TV show. There are a number of specialist Golf quiz which we used at our golf society annual events.
