How to make a quiz in PowerPoint

Step 1 – Create the Slides.

  1. Question slide (slide 1)– This slide will contain the question with four options.
  2. Right Answer Slide (slide 2)– This slide will contain the text for choosing the correct option and a “Next question” button.
  3. Wrong Answer Slide (slide 3)– This slide will contain the text for choosing the wrong option and two buttons – “Try again” and “Next Question.”

Step 2 – Hyperlinking the slides

  1. Since the question has four options out of which only one is correct, we’ll link the correct option to the Right Answer Slide.
    • Select the box of the correct answer and Go to the Insert tab.
    • Select Action. An Action Setting dialogue box will appear. 
    • Select Hyperlink to and in the dropdown menu, choose slide. 
    • Choose Slide 2 and press, OK
    • Save the setting by clicking OK.
  2. Link the remaining three options (incorrect answers) with the Wrong Answer Slide i.e., Slide 3 using the same steps.

Step 3 – Hyperlinking the buttons

  1. Buttons on the right answer slide – “Next Question” Link this button to the next quiz question slides in your presentation.
  2. Buttons on the wrong answer slide – “Next Question” and “Try Again.” 
    • Link the Next Question button to the next quiz question slide in the presentation. 
    • Link the Try Again button to Slide 1 i.e., the Question Slide, which will allow the user to re-attempt the question.
