Qualtrics Survey System

Using Qualtrics for Quizzes

As a survey system, Qualtrics is also capable of creating quizzes. If you have an assignment that involves an online quiz, this may be a good way to go about it.

return to topCreating a Quiz

Creating a quiz is essentially creating a survey and then applying grading options such as identifying the correct answers and assigning points.

  1. Create a survey

  2. Add desired questions

  3. On the Edit Survey tab, from the Advanced Options menu, select Scoring...
    The Scoring page appears.

  4. OPTIONAL: To display quiz results to respondents, select the desired summary option(s)
    NOTES:
    An option is selected when a checkmark appears.
    You may select both options.
    These options provide feedback to respondents, telling them whether they answered correctly, and if not, which answer was correct. (See a description of these options.)

    (See a sample of quiz results.)

return to topQuiz Summaries for Respondents

You can select one or the other of the options for quiz summaries, or you can select both. Here is a description of what you will see based on your selection(s):

Show End of Survey Summary (only)
When a respondent clicks SUBMIT at the end of the quiz, after answering the last question, the summary page returned shows points earned on the quiz out of total points possible for the quiz and the percentage correct. For each question, it indicates either correctly selected answers (green checkmark) or incorrectly selected answers (red X) with the correct answer in light green text. (View a sample of this summary.)
RECOMMENDED OPTION

Show Summary After Every Question (only)
If your quiz has multiple pages, when a respondent clicks SUBMIT at the bottom of each page, a summary of the questions on that page appears. For each question, it indicates either correctly selected answers (green checkmark) or incorrectly selected answers (red X) with the correct answer in light green text. This summary appears after each page is completed. (View a sample of this summary.)
RECOMMENDATION: Use this option with one-page quizzes only. Providing a summary after each page in a multiple page quiz may be disruptive to quiz takers.

Selecting Both Options
Question summaries appear after each page. After the question summaries of the final quiz page, a final page with the End of Survey Summary appears, providing a quiz summary and all question summaries.
NOT RECOMMENDED

Shown here are sample quiz summaries:
