To start creating a quiz on your WordPress site, please download a plugin Quiz And Survey Master Next and activate it on your WordPress dashboard (you can download the plugin from the link above, or you can install it via the menu Plugins »Add New, and search for your Quiz Survey Master and then install & activate).

Click the button Add New and a popup screen will appear where you can enter the name of the new quiz, for example, type “Quiz One” and Click the button Create to continue.
The new quiz is already included in the list of all quizzes and click the Edit button just below the quiz name when you scroll over your quiz name you should be able to see that the button is “Edit”.
How to Make an Inquiry
After you click Edit as above, you will see a page with many menus. And click the Add Question button, you will be directed to Question Type, You will see a wide choice of question types, for example I will create a question for multiple choice, so I will fill the Question Type with Multiple Choice.
Type a question in the column the editor has provided and fill in all possible answers by pressing the button Add New Answer. You can determine the right or correct answer by ticking Correct Answer and even assign a number of points to the people who get the right answers.
You can also write a message that will be displayed if the user gets the correct answer in the column Correct Answer Info. You can also fill in the instructions for the user in the fields Hint. Click the button Save Question if you have finished creating Questions and answers at the very bottom.
Add as many questions as you want using the exact same process as above.
To publish a quiz, please click the Quizess / Survey menu to see a list of quizzes that you have created. To the right of your quiz name are a few URLs and shortcodes that you can use to publish the quiz. You can choose the one that is the easiest for you, for example, you want to use a shortcode.
Please copy shortcode and paste it in a new post or article post that you have created to display the quiz. After that you can click Publish and see the results.
One of the final steps is to see the results of visitors who have already answered your quiz. When someone submits a quiz form, they are told how many questions they got right and wrong answers, and their name is then placed on the Leaderboard if they score high enough.
To display this Leaderboard, you can put it in the sidebar via Appearance »Widget» Quiz And Survery Leaderboard in the sidebar area of your WordPress site.
To see the overall results, you can look through your WordPress back end or dashboard in the menu Quizess / Survery »Result.
Another great area to analyze the effectiveness of your quiz is on the Statistics page. Click Quizzes / Survery »Stats and select what you want to see then click filter.
Statistics are useful for finding out if the quiz is of interest to your site visitors. For example, this plugin offers a number on how many quizzes were taken in the last few days or weeks. If the trend is going down, you may need to change your quiz. And if it has an upward trend, then the quiz is considered successful and interesting for your site visitors.
The above is a step by step how to create a quiz or survey on your WordPress site, which you can try. Hopefully this article was useful and helped you in creating quizzes and surveys. Good luck 🙂
