Tips to Write a Better Quiz

Use these 10 tips to help you write better quiz questions in your webinar:

  1. Write questions that support your attendees objectives.
  2. Don’t try to trick your attendees! Keep your questions clear and simple.
  3. For Drag and Drop or Matching questions, don't include too many options in the answer bank. This could get overwhelming for learners. Instead, break a long list of answers into two (or more) separate sections.
  4. Don't rely on True/False questions. They don't test your attendee's knowledge as well as other question types because your learner has a 50/50 chance of answering—or
    guessing—it right.
  5. If you do use True/False questions, avoid using absolute words like "only," "never" and "always."
  6. Try to avoid using "All of the above" or "None of the above" in your Multiple Choice questions. These can often seem like trick questions or confuse attendees.
  7. Be consistent with answer lengths. Since our brains look for patterns and visual cues, this may make the correct answer too obvious.
  8. Make sure your choices for a Multiple Choice question are grammatically parallel. One differently-phrased choice can mislead attendees.
  9. Use serious distractors—the incorrect choices—for Multiple Choice questions. Distractors aren't the time to make a joke.
  10. Be creative! Attendees will appreciate seeing different question types than the usual ones.
