Quiz Maker

An intuitive quiz maker for assessing employees, engaging customers, and generating leads.


How to Make a Quiz

1. Create Your Own Quiz

Open your Quiz dashboard, click ‘New Quiz‘ and give your project a title.

You can also duplicate an existing quiz in your dashboard. To do this, click an existing quiz and select ‘Copy‘.


2. Add Quiz Questions

Open the ‘Form‘ tab in the left sidebar, click ‘New question’ and then select a question type from the library.

Alternatively, you can type your question into our AI prediction tool and we’ll choose the best question type for you.

3. Apply Points to Answers

If you’ve used Single-Select question types, you can apply numerical points to individual answers. If you’ve used Multi-Select question types you instead choose which answers are correct and how many points are rewarded.

Click the answer option you want to assign points to, and enter a value into the points field.


4. Add Pages

Split your quiz across multiple pages if you have a lot of questions or cover several sub-topics.

Add more pages by clicking the ⋮ icon, selecting ‘Add page’ and then choosing either a question or exit page.

5. Customize Your Quiz Design

Customize your theme color and background image of your quiz using the ‘Theme‘ tab.

You can change fonts, add images and videos and even add your logo to quizzes to ensure they align with your brand guidelines.


6. Preview and Test

Before sharing your online quiz with respondents, you need to proof your questions and test the functionality.

Use the ‘Preview‘ button in the top bar of the quiz maker to complete a test version of your quiz.

Features for Quiz Makers

KwikSurveys’ quiz maker allows you to insert both closed and open question types into your project. These include text fields, multiple choice and drop-down lists.

You can choose whether to show a respondent their scores upon completion of your quiz, or hide them for your own analysis. This could take the form of a list of incorrect and correct answers, their page scores or just their overall score.

You’re also able to create custom score messages to be displayed on the score page based on a quiz taker’s score. For example, if you’ve created a personality quiz, you can give a respondent their personality type based on the points they’ve scored.

In cases where your quiz is being used for online testing, you’re able to set a time limit for respondents to answer all questions within.

Their response is submitted at the point they reached if they run out of time.

Add a password to your quiz in the settings menu of the quiz maker to restrict access.

Once you’ve created a quiz, you’ll want to ensure that it’s going to work on all devices.

With KwikSurveys, you don’t have to worry about that. All your projects will work flawlessly whether a respondent is using a desktop, tablet, phone or kiosk.

You can preview how your project will appear on phones and tablets by selecting ‘Preview/ Test‘ in the quiz maker, then clicking either phone or tablet view.

Remove all KwikSurveys branding from your online quiz with the white labelling feature. This is only available with the Business Plan.

Responses are collected in real time, so as soon as a quiz taker hits submit you’re able to view results. You’ll have access to the individual responses from each quiz taker and a collated report with charts and graphs for each question (unless it was open ended).

Your results can then be shared in two ways:

  • Export your results as a PDF or spreadsheet.
  • Share the digital version of your report with a URL link.
You can easily switch your digital report between public and private if you want to make any changes or simply revoke access.

If you want to dig a bit deeper into the trends and patterns in your data, you can use the filtering and comparison tools in the results section.

Filters allow you to view the results for a segment of your audience based on a factor (e.g. question choice or demographic).

Comparisons allow you to compare the results of two different segments against each other (e.g. what male respondents picked as opposed to female respondents).

8 Tips for Creating an Online Quiz

1. Know your goal

Before you start writing questions and answers, you need to define your goals. Whether it’s for lead generation or candidate assessment, your questions should be written to meet your goals.

2. Research your topic

To ensure your quiz is accurate and relevant, you’ll need to know a good deal about your topic. If respondents spot a mistake, they’re likely to disengage and leave.

3. Understand your audience

There are certain elements of a quiz that need to be tailored to your target audience, e.g. formality, language and difficulty. Make it difficult enough to engage people but simple enough to be understood.

4. Easy questions first

To keep respondents engaged, you want to give them a sense of achievement early on. If you ask questions they can’t answer at the start they’re likely to give up and leave your quiz early.

5. Keep it short

Don’t ask questions for the sake of it. The average quiz should take around two and a half minutes to complete, but this will vary depending on your goals. Only include questions relevant to your topic.

6. Make your title clickable

Much like any piece of content, you have to draw people in with a title that appeals to them. This is especially important for fun quizzes, as you’re competing with every other quiz creator out there.

7. Provide feedback

People don’t take quizzes for the fun of answering questions, but rather to receive some information or feedback. By giving this feedback at the end of your quiz, respondents will feel rewarded for their time.

8. Test your quiz

Testing your online quiz will allow you to identify any mistakes you’ve made in the creation. Whether the issue is with the context of a question or that you’ve forgotten to apply points to a few answers.
