    Quiz form?

    Asked by lvujcic on December 20, 2011 at 06:13 AM

    Hy,

    I need help with creating quiz form. I have 5 different questions, each with 3 or more answers. I undestand that I need to use radio button with submit button (when there is only one potential answer), or check box with submit (when there are more possible answers).

    Principe is that when someone choose answer and click submit button, new window appers with Correct/Incorrect message, explanation of that particularry answer and Next button which will lead to next question. I don't know how to do that with "Conditions"! Can somebody please help me with this?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, what you want to achieve is way too complex for Jotform's built-in tools. I hate to say this, but I think Jotform may not be enough to satisfy your requirements. Still, who knows, my colleagues or perhaps, other Jotform users, might be able to find a viable solution.

    Thanks.

    Ok. Can I then create quiz without submit button, with question with 3 potential answers and when you choose one of them, you got message (Correct/Incorrect - explanation) in the same window? After you got your explanation you can click button next for other question? Is this feasible?

    How good is your php lvujcic? 

    Do you have access to a php enabled web server? 

    You can create a custom thankyou page with php on it that will 'mark' your form upon submittal. 

    You can read this User Guide Entry on how to retreive the POST variables of your form.

     

    I can help you with some of the php code.

    Do you have access to a webserver that could host a php 'thankyou' page for you?

    This 'thankyou' page will be used to 'mark' the form and display the results. 

    If you do have access to a webserver,

    1) Build your form on JotForm (using radio buttons for the quiz questions is fine)

    2) design how you want your 'results' page to look (making it obvious where the questions responses and test score should go) and upload it to your webserver. Call this page something.php

    3) I will provide you some php that you can add to your results/thankyou page to get the quiz functionality.
