    How to setup a quiz form with score and answers?

    Asked by smartbody on March 30, 2017 at 02:35 AM

    I have set up a quiz - but terribly. 

    What I wanted: 

    Quiz questions x 10

    SUBMIT

    Answer page: social share at the top - Can You Get All These Questions Right? 
    Answers and explanation below.

    What I have... 
    Quiz questions but I've had to put answers after questions on the next page - if I redirect to a new page, how do participants get their answers and score? 

    If I direct to Jotform page, I can't do any lead generation. 

    HELP!

    Thanks Ian- I have already turned the form into a quiz - but my issue is what happens at the end. 

    If I send to the Jotform thank you page, there is no lead generation - and I can't build a page with the widgets available on the forms. 

    If I redirect clients to an external page, how do they get their results? 

    Sigh, I feel like I am chasing myself in circles. So I put the answers on a new page after the question. But I'd like to see if there's another work around? 

    Cheers, Justine

    I am not what is the design of your form's process flow.

    Currently, here's my observation.

    1. First, you are using checkbox instead of radio buttons. Please note that your user can choose multiple answers using the checkbox field. 

     

    2. Your answers are displayed after each question, is this correct? Because your user can easily hit the "Back" button and change their answers?

     

    Here's how I will make a quiz form that might help you:

    1. First, if you want to only allow 1 answer for each question, I suggest that you change the checkbox field to a radio button field instead. 

     

    2. If you do not want to display each correct answer every after question, then remove them in your form. We will setup a "Thank You" page where the score and the correct answers are displayed.

    3. Now we will assign calculation values on the checkbox/radio button field. You can do that by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    Below is an example where my questions are answerable by true or false, I will then assign a value of "1" for the correct answer, to give 1 point, while 0 for the incorrect answer. 

    4. Now we will use the Form Calculation widget to calculate the score. You can learn more about this on this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget

    Here you can see that I use a formula to sum up all the values in questions 1 to 5. You can use the math operations here and use the "Add Field" button get the values of the other fields. 

     

    6. If you do not wish to display the score to your user without submitting the form, then simply hide it:

     

    7. Now in the "Thank You" page, you can use the calculated score to display the score of the user. You can also simply add there your user's answer and the correct answer to the question. Here's how I made mine:

     

    To learn more about the "Thank You" page, you can check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/211-Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

     

    You can test my form here: https://form.jotformpro.com/70883638533970. Fill it out and see how it looks like. Here's a sample of it:

    You now have a way to calculate the score and present it to your users in a customize way. 

    I hope that helps.
