Sample Screens
Harris Quiz

OK, they are not actual screens, they would be too big. They are graphics I did using Paintbrush, but they are pretty close to the actual screens and will give you a good idea of what the actual screens look like as far as color and style.

When you create a personal computer quiz all parts of the quiz, including the questions, documents, and graphics, are compiled into ONE file. To copy or duplicate your quiz you only have to deal with that one file, you do not have to copy the documents or graphics separately. Makes it pretty hard to leave something out when making a duplicate.

Note that on each screen you are told what options you have and exactly which key to press to accomplish those options. The entire program uses this as its main design philosophy
