Want to create an engaging online Quiz? You've come to the right place! Just follow the steps below, and you'll have a new Quiz in no time!

Creating an online Quiz

The first thing you need to do is create an account. Don't have one yet? Please read this article.

Once you've done that, you'll see some options on your dashboard. For all accounts you have the possibility of creating Courses, plus three types of tests – Quizzes, Exams and Assessments. If you're not sure which format is the best option for you, please take a look at this article.

Why Quizzes?

Gamified quizzes are basically short questionnaires given with the objective of testing the knowledge people have about a topic, and helping them learn about it at the same time. Allowing multiple attempts can make the quizzes work like memory games. You remember you got a certain answer wrong the first time, so now you know you need to try a different answer. 

The scoring is calculated according to the time someone takes to answer the questions, and the number of questions answered correctly. The time for the following questions gets cut short if you keep getting the answers wrong. This way, the Quiz generates a leaderboard (ranking) and you can see who got the best score at the end. If you allow multiple plays, your players have the chance to improve their score and their position on the leaderboard at the same time.
