A good quiz has a mix of question types, and we have some insights on the best kinds of questions to ask in order to get people to take and finish your quiz. This article aims to go through the options for questions you can ask in your quiz and the best practices for how to create each type of question.
Before we start, here are a few question logicstics.
You want to have 6-10 questions for your quiz in most cases (some exceptions for longer needs)
You want to have 3-6 answer choices per question (some exceptons again)
Text Question With Image Answers
This is the best format for quiz questions because images are so much easier to digest than text. All 100 of the most viewed quizzes ever created on the interact platform have at least one question of this type.
To make things easier for you, we have a built-in integration with Pixabay that will help you find and add images without having to leave the interact quiz builder and go somewhere else.
You can also upload your own images or add from a URL if you have your own images.
I recommend setting up this type of question with six answer choices because it will format nicely on both mobile screens and desktop devices.
Image Question With Text Answers
This type of question works well when you're doing stuff like "Can You Identify This Image?" or if you have a question that pertains to a certain topic but doesn't necessarily work well with each answer being represented by an image.
A general rule with quiz questions is that you never want to force the use of images if it just doesn't make sense for what you're doing, but an image question can fit in well if you just can't make image answers work correctly.
One thing to be aware of with image questions is that they can get a bit long if you are using lots of answer choices so keep that in mind.
Image Question With Image Answers
If you want to go for all the images you can make a question that looks like this where the question is an image and the answer choices are all images.
Beware that this will definitely scroll on mobile devices like the picture on the right and it will likely also scroll on desktops that are smaller.
I don't really recommend using this type of question unless there's a good reason too, because it's got so many images that it will load slower.
Text Question With Text Answers
This is the fallback or go-to depending on how you look at it. Setting up an all-text question loses out on the image engagement stuff, but it also makes for a faster and more serious quiz experience.
You should use this type of question if yo need your quiz to be really quick, and I've often seen it used on quizzes that primarily get traffic from Facebook or Instagram ads.
It's still imoportant not to make the questions too long though, no more than 6 answer choices per question if at all possible.
"Select All That Apply" Questions
Some questions just don't have only one answer. You can set up questions where people can select more than one answer and you can choose how many answers they can select.
This can be super useful for more complicated logistical quizzes as well since you'll have more opportunities for setting up the quiz scoring system.
"Correct Answer" Questions
*Only Available on Assessments*
In an assessment type quiz built with interact you can ask questions where there is one correct answer (or multiple correct answers if you combine this type of question with the select multiple option).
This will allow you to make trivia quizzes, pub quizzes, etc. where you are testing people on their knowledge of a subject.
Show Feedback Screens Between Each Question
On a quiz where each question has a correct answer you can have these intermediate screens where each question gets an explanation.
