Quiz Preview

The quiz has different areas that can be enabled or disabled. Here is a preview of the eLearning template.

Visual Quiz Editor

The quiz section has 21 predefined phishing mails that can be individually enabled/disabled and customized using the QUIZ editor:

The editor allows you to customize the mails without dealing with the html source code. You can define:

  • (1) If you want to enable disable the Quiz, If it is a phishing mail or a regular mail & what the mail date/author and reply-to address should look like
  • (2) If the quiz should show any attachments (the symbol gets created automatically) and if the attachment type is considered dangerous by your policy.
  • (3) Hints/Solutions: Define some hints and solutions for the user
  • (4) Use your mouse to move the hints/solutions to the location on the Quiz page you desire.

All other elements (like images, text etc) from the main page can be edited in the same way as all other templates.

Quiz Editing in the Source Code

All settings can also be altered in the source code directly in case you don't want to use the visual editor:

  • Edit vertical distance between different display boxes: To edit vertical space change CSS value in file main.css (line 179).
  • Enable / disable the auto slide of phishing tips & lengths of pause: Activate the autoslide by uncommenting in index.html: /*autoplay: true,*/
  • Set the length of pause between auto slide in quiz-config.js: Example: autoStepTimeout: 2000
  • Location of quiz pages: The quiz pages are located under /mails/q1.html, /mails/q2.html, etc.
  • Default language: You can set the default language in the header of the index.html page. By default it is set to English (en). If you want a different language (e.g. German, then switch it to the according country code (e.g. "de –> "getParams.lang = getParams.lang ? getParams.lang : 'de';")
  • Define which quiz pages are displayed: Within quiz-config.js you can define which and how many quiz pages are loaded. Example load only page q0 & q1: var QuizConfig = { files: [ 'q0','q1']

  • Define the mail hints: The hint field size adjusts to its content. The position has to be defined within the "style" variable in each mail html file. Example:

    Some hint text

Lucy Interactive Awareness

The interactive awareness content is currently translated into 10 languages.

In the quiz the user will be presented different mails and web sites over five rounds. They will contain highlighted items. We ask the user to study the content carefully. When the user hovers over highlighted area he can either click "unsafe" if it seems as an indicator of a phishing email or he can click "safe" if the item appears to impose no risk. The user has 3 lives per round and 1 minute to examine each content. A correct answer gives the user one point. He looses one life with an incorrect answer. Feedback will appear automatically after he selected the answer. All answers are also reported back to LUCY. The quiz can only be customized within the source code.

Example Configuration "Set a different time for the users to answer the questions"

There is the file static/js/config.js: {"nQuestions":11,"nAnswers":0,"nCorrAnswers":0,"nTime":0,"nPage":-1,"sPrefix":"q","nPages":7,"nQuestPages":5,"naPages":[-1], "nPageTime":61,"nCurrLimit":0,"nLives":3} The current setting is "nPageTime = 61". If you want it to be 2 minutes you need to set the value "nPageTime" to 121.

Here are a few screenshots:
