    Designing an answer key (2003)

    I'm working on a "student booklet" to accompany a PowerPoint presentation. The booklet is divided into chapters, and each chapter has two or more "check on learning" sections where the student must answer a series of multiple-choice questions. Each question has only one correct answer. My next task will be to construct an answer key, and I'm looking for a way to automate the process...kind of like the way Word builds a table of contents.

    So far I've got the main body of the booklet laid out with an outline numbering scheme, which is working fabulously, thanks help from HansV! <img src=/S/salute.gif border=0 alt=salute width=15 height=20> The numbering uses the pattern "1.1.1.1.1" and looks like this:

    Heading 1: Chapter (e.g., "Chapter 5")
    Heading 2: Slide number (e.g., "Slide 1". The slide numbering restarts with each chapter.)
    Heading 3: Check on learning number (includes the chapter number

    Re: Designing an answer key (2003)

    By "Answer Key" I assume you want an index similar to:
    Question 5.1.1 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . C
    Question 5.1.2 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E
    Question 5.1.3 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A

    Or are you thinking of something else?

    Well -- not exactly the way indicated. However, you can get a key of sorts as I did in the attached (based on what Phil posted originally). Create a TC code in the correct answer paragraph (select text and key Alt+Shift+o, modify the text to read what you want it to be and indicate level 2 in the dialog). Then copy and paste the TOC code from the attached into your document and you'll have a key -- not exactly what you wanted, but it could work for you.

    Karen: Thanks for your very helpful response. That's about what we're looking for.

    What is a TC field?

    It is used to mark entries for a Table of Contents. Usually, a table of contents is created from the Heading styles, but it is also possible to use text marked with a TC field. You can look up TC in the Answer Wizard in the Word help.

    How do I do this? I've studied Karen's attached document, but I don't know how to find the code to copy. Thank you!

    <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> Oops! Sorry about not being more clear. If you use Alt+F9 you will see the TOC disappear and in it's place with be the TOC code between curved braces. Just select it and copy then paste into your document.
