Everything you need to know from the basics through advanced features
Styling Your AssessmentTo style your assessment, start by entering the Assessment Generator editor. First, select the “Edit” link in the menu underneath your assessment.
Choose Your Assessment LayoutIn the upper left-hand corner of the Style Tab, you’ll see the Layout section: There are several pre-designed assessment layouts for you to choose from:
- Clean & Simple: plain assessment with no borders or question separators
- Bordered: assessment has a border and questions are separated by horizontal lines
- Striped: assessment has a border and questions are separated by an alternating background-color
- Single question: one question per page, auto-advance to next question
Layout OptionsNext, you have more formatting options related to your assessment layout: The first setting allows you general control over the Font Size for your questions and other text areas in your assessment. You can override the font size in any text area in the assessment editor by specifying a font in a specific editor window. Wherever a font size is not specified in an editor window, then the general settings set here apply. You can also choose whether to include your assessment title (or section headings if your assessment is split by section under the Setup Tab) on each page of your assessment. Click the Save & Update Preview button to view your changes.
Edit Button Text and Other Text ElementsMoving to the right, you’ll see the Text section: With these settings, you can change the wording on any of the buttons or pre-set fields in your assessment. For example, here are the default settings for these buttons and text fields: You can customize each of these as desired. Just select the text field that you want to customize, enter what you’d like it to be, and save your changes. This feature also provides increased support for non-English languages. All the elements in your assessment can now be created in your language. Click the Save & Update Preview button to view your changes. To view some of the fields, you might need to select “Test Assessment” from the drop-down menu in the upper right of your screen to see your changes.
Color PalettesOn the right, you’ll see a selection of color palettes available to you. Select a color palette from the list and click the Save & Update Preview button to view your changes.
Enter Your Brand ColorsYou can also enter your brand colors (or other custom colors): There are 3 ways to enter colors:
- If you know the hex code for the color, you can enter it on the line.
- You can click on the color box and select a color.
- You can enter an HTML color name, such as “red” or “firebrick”, on the line. (Learn more about HTML Color Names here.)
Detailed Color SettingsYou can also use the Detailed Color Settings to individually change the color items in your assessment. The first one is the Page Background Color field. This setting affects the color of the background of all the pages in your assessment.
Changing Color AssignmentsThere are multiple ways you can change the color assignments in these fields. You can click on the color box and select a color.
