ABOUT THE QUIZ
This quiz was created using Adobe Captivate. There are three file choices: as an .htm file, an Adobe Acrobat Document or as a Shockwave File Object. I recommend using the .htm file. It can be viewed in Google Chrome, IE or Firefox. If you use the other files then you need the latest and up to date Adobe Acrobat Reader and Flash Player to view the interactive quiz. If you choose the latter files then it is possible to view it with a swiff player. General features of the quiz are:
• Choices are automatically marked
• Overall results are displayed at the end
• Responses can be reviewed at the end.
• 1 point allocated for each correct answer
• 80% or more of total points is a total pass
• answers reviewed at end.
The quiz can be displayed for a whole class activity or it could be uploaded online for individual student use. It is also possible to print the text and questions.
This resource builds on the Housing Vocabulary 1 Quiz.

TIPS ON OPENING THIS FILE
Double check the TPT instructions on how to unzip in case there's a small detail that has been missed. This site also has useful tips on opening a zipped .swf file at http://www.wikihow.com/Open-SWF-Files
Other things to check is whether your flash player is up-to-date in your browser and whether it works in a different browser. I've tested them in the following browsers.
In IE, check these instructions at https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-issues-windows-10-ie.html.
In Chrome, try this extension http://flashplayer.fullstacks.net/ and choose the file from your computer in order to view it online. Make sure you adjust the width and height you prefer.
In IE, download this free SWIFF player at http://www.globfx.com/downloads/swfplayer/. It works very nicely with the IE swf file as a stand-alone option.
In Firefox, check the information on this page to make sure Flash is working at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-flash-plugin-view-videos-animations-games.
