Part B: Testing

In this step-by-step tutorial, we will show you how to test the questions you created in the previous tutorial, Getting Started – Part A: Creating.

Step 1: Opening and Closing Votes

  • Launch Slide Show by either selecting the Slide Show ribbon and clicking From Beginning, or by simply pressing the F5 key.

  • The following message will appear:
    receiver_not_detected
  • Click Continue With Sample Results.
    This option allows you to test your questions without needing an IML Click voting system.
  • Press the Enter key to forward to Slide 2.
    (Slide 2 should contain the multiple choice question created in 'Step 2' of 'Part A' of the 'Getting Started' tutorials.)

    You will see that the sample results have disappeared and that a message, "Press Enter to Start/Stop Vote", appears in the top-left corner of the screen. This message is generated by the 'Voting Control', which is amber indicating that the vote will be opened upon the next mouse click or enter key press.

    test_vote
  • Press the Enter key to open the vote.
    The vote prompt appears, indicating that the vote is open, and the response counter within the 'Voting Control' fills up with random votes generated by the software.
    open_vote
  • Once all responses have been collected, press the Enter key to close the vote.
    Sample results appear and the 'Voting Control' and vote prompt disappear, indicating that vote is closed.
    close_vote
    Repeat this process to test the next question.
  • Press the Enter key to forward to Slide 3.
    (Slide 3 should contain the numeric range question created in 'Step 3' of 'Part A' of the 'Getting Started' tutorials.)
  • Press the Enter key to open the vote.
  • Press the Enter key to close the vote.

Step 2: Cancelling a Vote

This step demonstrates how to cancel a vote that has been opened too early.
  • Press the Enter key to forward to Slide 4.
    (Slide 4 should contain the multiple choice question displayed in 'Step 4' of 'Part A' of the 'Getting Started' tutorials.)
  • Press the Enter key to open the vote.
  • Press the Esc key to cancel the vote.
    Any received votes are lost when a vote is cancelled.
  • Press the Enter key to open the vote.
  • Press the Enter key to close the vote.

Step 3: Re-Running a Vote

This step demonstrates how to re-run a vote that has been closed
  • Press the Page Up key to go back to Slide 3
  • Press the Enter key.
    You will notice that the 'Voting Control' now displays the message "Results Present". This means that you cannot open the vote until the existing results are cleared.
