Use ChatGPT to Convert Any Written Content into a Trivia Quiz

We’ll let you in on a little secret: a prompt you can use in ChatGPT to convert any written content into a trivia quiz. Don’t skip this opportunity to transform your existing content into an exciting quiz experience. 

When to use a Knowledge or Trivia Quiz 

Use a knowledge or trivia quiz when all the questions in your quiz have a correct answer. With Interact, there are two ways to display the correct answer: 

  • Show correct answers after quiz-takers answer each question.
  • Show a results sheet with a complete list of correct answers at the end of the quiz.

Let’s look at what wouldn’t work in a knowledge-style or trivia quiz. Consider the question, “What stage of business are you in?” for example. This question does not have a wrong answer. If your quiz-taker selected “Just getting started,” it would be pretty awkward if you told them they answered incorrectly. 

Below is a great example of a knowledge test from the American Red Cross that teaches people about preparedness for home fires.

Quiz-takers learn a lot during this quiz because it lets them know the right answer right after they select their answer choice. 

Are you ready to make your knowledge test or trivia quiz? Let’s open ChatGPT and check out the prompt we use.

First, put the prompt in the system section, and then ask ChatGPT to read the text and identify the main topic.

This is where you should place your website, a link to your article, or your PDF. 

Now, because we know we want to make a knowledge quiz, the rest of the prompt details the correct format. As you can see below, we included which answer should be correct in the format.

It even explains why an answer is correct. 

After submitting the prompt, your quiz will come fully built out in the assistant section.

Based on the article we pasted in the prompt, ChatGPT suggested the title, “How much do you know about building a lead-generation quiz?”

We asked for six questions in the prompt, which we got. It also shows the correct answer and gives an explanation. 

ChatGPT will also give you three different outcomes with score ranges to categorize or segment people into one of your outcomes.  

Let’s take a look at next steps!

We will also add this fun trivia quiz to our website as a popup: 

This way, before somebody digs into the course, they can test their knowledge and gain confidence in how much they might already know. If they score low on this trivia quiz, the popup can point them to specific course sections that would be most helpful.

We can also recommend our AI service, knowing they’ve never created a lead-generation quiz. If these quiz-takers were to start with an AI version of the quiz, they could customize it more easily. All the best practices of using a quiz are already included in the basic quiz they’re getting from AI. 

It’s okay if your quiz-takers score low on these quizzes—you still give them the correct answers. The entire time they’re taking your quiz, they’re learning more about the topic.

Before publishing the quiz, feel free to add an image to the quiz result pages:
