In this tutorial, we’re going to take you step-by-step on how to create a quiz in WordPress

Are you wondering how to create a quiz in WordPress? Look no further, we'll show you how to add a quiz to your blog, step-by-step.


Quizzes are a powerful tool, especially if you’ve just started a blog. Whether you use them for fun or you want to collect valuable information from your readers, quizzes are a great way to boost engagement. They can even make you go viral and skyrocket traffic to your website.


Not only do quizzes help boost engagement, but they can help you get more traffic from social media.


BuzzFeed is an excellent example of how viral quizzes work. They generate tons of traffic and social shares from their popular quizzes.


Here are some more reasons why you should add quizzes to your blog:

Adding quizzes to your blog makes visitors stay longer on your site, which lowers the bounce rate. A low bounce rate is not only good for your blog’s engagement, but it’s also good for your blog’s SEO.

Quizzes can help you grow your email list. You can direct them to your newsletter page or add a signup form in the quiz itself.

It can help improve your conversions. For example, you can create a quiz that educates users about a product you want them to buy.

A simple WordPress quiz can open all sorts of opportunities for your blog so it’s best to take advantage of it. 

Creative Quiz Ideas You Can Use

Depending on what your goals are, you can choose from a variety of quiz types. Some of the popular quiz types are:

Personality quiz

Trivia quiz

Yes or no quiz

Multiple choice quiz

True or false quiz

BuzzFeed style quiz

Let’s go over a few of them now:

Trivia Quiz

Trivia quizzes can be used to test users’ knowledge about a specific topic. This quiz type is popular because quiz takers try to get as many correct answers as possible and sometimes compete with each other in the comment section.


You can create a fun trivia quiz about a topic like Star Wars:

Or, you can make it more educational. For example, if you’re running an online course, you can use quizzes to test your students about what they’ve learned. 


How to Create a Quiz in WordPress

The first step to creating a quiz is to use the right quiz builder tool.


Though there are many WordPress plugins that can help you create a quiz, we highly recommend Formidable Forms.


Formidable forms survey plugin for WordPress

Formidable Forms is an advanced WordPress form plugin that has a simple drag and drop functionality. This makes it easy to create all kinds of forms for your WordPress blog.

Once you’ve installed the plugin, you’ll then need to install the Quiz Maker addon. To install the addon, go to Formidable » Add-Ons and then click on Install under the Quiz Maker section.

If you choose to show a message, you can customize what the message says at the bottom of the page. And if you want to display users’ scores as soon as they submit the quiz, you can add the short code in the success message.

Simply click on the 3 dots in the corner and choose the Quiz Score field ID, like in the example below:
