Powerpoint Quizzes

Most will have Microsoft Office PowerPoint on their computers, if you do not you may still  view these presentations if you download PowerPoint Viewer from here, free from the Microsoft website.

Click on the images below to view the presentation. If presentation does not open straight away
you may need to save it first.

Some presentations may have separate instructions, be sure to download them as well, e.g. Pub Quiz

When you connect your laptop computer to a television or projector you will  be able to scroll through the questions and  answers as normal by pressing the enter key on your laptop. When viewing presentation ensure it is set to slideshow mode.

    The movie of the 60ties worked a treat! We used it as plan B when we had to cancel entertainment last minute and the audience was enjoying it big time – great source for reminiscing further from it. Will be using these twice a month from now on. Much better than normal quizzes.

    Thank you!

    Hi Birgit, these quizzes are great if you could do more multiply choice general knowledge quizzes that would be great, also I showed the movies of the 60’s powerpoint and our residents loved it. Maybe next time you could put music slides slotted throughout.

      Will do my best ????

      Wendy I have tried every way I know to embed videos into these powerpoints but they will not play at the other end… very frustrating!

    Hi Birgit
    It was a very good resource. Thank you

    Is there anyway you could have the answer in the following slide after each question so that we give the residents to think of the answers. Since it is already there they are just giving the answers as the answer is already given!

    Just a suggestion

    Thank you

      Hi Nangai
      Please ensure you have the quiz in slideshow mode, this way when you click your mouse or hit the enter button on your pc the quiz will only show one line at a time. The answer will not show until you click your mouse or hit the enter key.

      Please contact me if you have any issues.

      Hope this helps.

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / Reply April 20, 2016 at 9:22 am

      Thanks Chereyne

      Will be pleased to hear how it goes.
