When you make your own quiz it can be more than just a bit of fun. It can also be a great way to get to know things about yourself or other people.
Many people have filled out a personality quiz or tried to take a quiz to test their knowledge of a particular subject just to see how they compare to others who may have taken the same quiz.
The great thing is that you can make your own quiz and have some fun with it.
Quizzes are used as a type of mind sport where people attempt to answer as many questions as possible correctly. They can also be used in aspects of education to measure growth in knowledge or skills.
The multiple-choice types of quizzes have grown in popularity all over the internet as there is no right or wrong answer.
The responses you give to these types of quizzes are tallied up and then the results can display some kind of trait or information about the person answering the quiz.
Before you begin to make your the quiz, you should choose your preferred format. Will you be creating a multiple-choice quiz or a defined answer quiz?
You should also have an awareness of what results you're trying to achieve. For example if you want to generate a range of possible outcomes based on the quiz results, then you'll need to be sure your scores add up the right way.
However if you're testing knowledge and want to understand the respondents grasp of the topic, then you'll need to find a range of questions that offer a fair cross-section of questions within the topic.
For the purpose of this article, let's use a relationship quiz.
Where possible, you want your questions to be more in-depth than a simple yes or no response. You also want to ask questions that will highlight some aspect of the respondent's knowledge or understanding in some way.
Our example quiz for this article is the relationship quiz. An example question you might use could be as follows:
Your second question might have more to do with how each person in the relationship interacts.
The questions give some scope as to the range of options available and allow you to gain some insight into the respondent's understanding of the subject matter.
When you've written all your questions, you'll need to allocate each answer a particular score. Most quizzes usually assign each response with a score of 1, 2, 3 or 4, depending on the answer.
In the case of our example quiz, a high score should try to indicate a romantic relationship while a lower score could indicate that the relationship might need a little more work to stay on track.
In your own quiz, work out your answers or specific traits and allocate each one a specific range of numbers. For example, you could award negative answers or ambiguous answers with a 1 and score positive or healthy answers with a 4.
If you've asked 10 questions and the maximum score available for any question is 4, then the total maximum score anyone can receive will be 40.
Allow some scope for people to get less than perfect responses and come up with a range of scoring options.
This is just a simple example using a relationship quiz to give you an idea of the basics.
Many quizzes use variations of the example questions, scoring system and results, so when you make your own quiz feel free to include anything you want to add.
We hope you enjoyed our tutorial on how to make your own quiz. Good luck with creating some of your own. We'd love to hear from you if you've created some of your own quizzes.
