Many people are asking questions about how to make quizzes in PowerPoint http://www.thedailyreviewer.com/windowsapps/view/quiz-in-powerpoint-2007-103418801#103312145. There are basically two ways for making a quiz in PowerPoint program: the first is to learn VBA programming and create the quiz in PowerPoint, and the second one is to set the internal links on buttons between slides to direct the audience to result page or feedback page based on their answers.
