Christmas Quiz Questions and Answers
SmartSurvey’s advanced features can help you create your very own quiz. This easy to follow guide will walk you through each of the features so you can create your own Christmas conundrum.
We built this survey with a pinch of different question types, a dash of skip logic and added a sprinkle of images for Christmas decoration. We used a Christmas theme to wrap up the whole parcel – you can select your own from our Theme Library.
Start Creating Your Christmas Quiz
- Login and click on ‘Create a Survey’.
- Create a new survey, give it a Survey Title and click Start.
- Select a Christmas Theme by clicking the drop down box and choosing ‘Seasonal’.
This will display a range of templates for popular UK holidays such as Valentine’s Day and Christmas. There are even a few party themes in there. Remember, if you want a fully branded experience or have a specific design requirement then you can create your own custom theme.
- Add your Christmas quiz questions and answers. You can write or copy and paste these into the questions and answer boxes. In the example that we put together, we used mainly multiple choice questions but you will have a range of options depending on the type of plan you are signed up to. If you would like to use multiple choice questions in your quiz, add a new question and select multiple choice in the question type drop down.
Using Skip Logic in your Quiz
Skip logic (also referred to as conditional branching or routing) is used to create a planned route for respondents through a survey. The feature is used to make the questions asked in the survey and the pages that respondents are directed to more relevant. In the case of our Christmas Quiz, we have applied logic to each question so that if you answer the question correctly you are taken to the correct answer page. However, if you get the answer wrong you are taken to an incorrect answer page.
How to Set Up Skip Logic
- Click on ‘Skip Logic’ on the right-hand side of your question. (Don’t forget that Skip Logic cannot be set up on the last page of your survey.)
- Click ‘Add New Rule’. From the drop down box in ‘Condition’, select ‘choice is not’ and then in the choice drop down box, select the correct answer.
- Now you can select an ‘Action’ to Jump to page.
- Select the page that you wish the respondent to be taken to and where on that page they will start.
- Click ‘Save’.
Using Scoring in your Quiz
For selected questions in our quiz, we have set it up so that respondents can only select one of the options and provide one answer. We have set up scoring for each question by adding a 1 next to the correct response, this will add a value to the answer. By adding a score of 1 to all correct answers, we will be able to generate a final score and place it in the last survey slide, letting respondents know how they did in the quiz.
To set up scoring, please follow the steps below (you will need a paid subscription).
- On My Surveys page, select Settings next to your survey.
2. Select Features from the survey settings menu.
3. Select the checkbox next to Enable Scoring.
4. Click Save Changes and open the Design section of the survey.
5. Select Edit Question on a question that requires scoring.
6. You can now enter your scoring values in the Score fields. Click Save Question to confirm any changes.
7. You can view the scores of a respondent, by accessing the Responses section within the survey results section.
8. Within this section, you will be able to view the Question Score, Page Score and Total Score for each respondent.
Showing the final score
If you are applying scoring to answer choices, you might want to display these to the respondent at the end of the survey. We have done this in our Christmas quiz so respondents can see how well they did in the survey.
To do this, you will need to click on ‘Settings’, and then ‘Finish’.
In the thank you text window, you can edit the message around the brackets to suit the final message for your survey. It’s always good practice to thank the respondent for taking part and explain how the data will be used.
To make sure that all questions in the quiz are answered and there is no respondent bias, we ticked the following boxes in the question ‘Answer Choices’;
- Require an answer to this question
- Randomise, Sort or Flip Answer Choices
Remember, at the end of your survey, you can add an Auto Redirect to take the respondent to a new web page. To do this, click on ‘Finish’ in Survey Settings and add the URL of the web page you wish to redirect respondents to and after how long.
