Why do you need to make your own quiz?
If you want to make a quiz online, it isn't just about letting your friends discover which Disney princess they are. Online quizzes are used to calculate IQ's, test aptitudes, help diagnose illnesses, and even match applicants to jobs. The scope is almost universal, so you need a WordPress quiz maker that is flexible enough to handle any project!
What features do you need from a WordPress quiz plugin?
There are so many possible applications so this is a question you must answer for yourself. Take a look at just a few of the most notewothy Formidable features used for building quizzes and surveys:
Calculate the quiz score
Calculations are essential to most quizzes and surveys. Formidable's separate values allow you to assign a value to the options in your form. Field calculations can then be used to add up those values and display a total. Display this total directly, or use it as a trigger to show custom messages based on the score.
Separate values can be applied to dropdown fields, radio buttons and checkboxes. Number fields can also be used in your form. Use the values submitted in your number fields in the final score calculation.
Alternatively, the Formidable Quiz Maker plugin can handle the answer key and scoring for you. This way, no separate values or in-form calculations are required.
Display a custom quiz results page
Formidable has a range of clever shortcodes that allow you to display the data submitted via your quiz.
Views expand the possibilities further. In a View, use conditional statements to customize the content shown based on the quiz score. Those who score below 20 can see different content than those with scores between 20 and 40.
Show different message for each group of scores. The limits and content are 100% customizable!
Graph quiz results or show statistics
Individual quiz results are only half of the story. You can also show field totals and statistics from all fields or just those that are especially relevant.
Do you want to show average values across all form submissions? Or perhaps a running total of the number of people who have completed the quiz?
Another option is to graph the data from your form in an eye-catching way. Graphs are a visually appealing way to display your data, and are simple to use. The built-in graphing tools have a variety of options for displaying your data.
Email the results
Displaying a score on-screen is just the beginning. Want to email a copy of the score to the site admin and your user? Emailing the score isn't just vanity - it's an opportunity!
Use this opportunity to begin building a relationship and promoting your services. You can tailor these messages to the user's specific interests because you have the user's data.
To completely customize your the email, remove the [default-message] shortcode. Now add your custom message using conditional statements to customize the content depending on the user's quiz score. For more details about custom email messages, take a look at our knowledge base. Emails can be crafted to match your branding, and beautifully customized!
