My Scratch booklet can be found downloaded here – Programming with Scratch booklet v3 The instructions for the quiz are outlined in Activity 2 (page 8 onwards)

Enhancing your program:

  • Add more sprites (characters on the screen)
  • Add your own sounds (Hint: click the Sounds button in the top left of the screen, then the speaker icon at the bottom left of the screen)
  • Make the character move or dance when an answer is correct (Hint: look in Motion)
  • Add in a score (instructions on pg. 10 – 11 of the Scratch step by step instructions booklet)
  • Adjust the score to decrease when the user gets a question wrong (Hint: change the score by -1)
  • Get the character to include the user’s answer when they speak – e.g. “Well done. The answer was 10” (Hint: you’ll need to use a Join block from Operators)
  • Change the background when the score reaches ten (Hint: add an if, then block to check the score and perform an action if Score = 10)
  • Make the sprite ask a question again if the answer is incorrect
