Quiz

Quizzes help you to engage better with your audience and increase the interactivity among users in an activity.

Quizzes are similar to Polls as they help boost the engagement of users in an activity, but while Quizzes are designed to test the knowledge of users in a fun way, where they get to select an answer and can see their immediate results, Polls are used to record the opinions and votes of users, there is no wrong or right answer with polls. To learn how to create a poll click here.

In this article, you will learn how to create Quizzes for activities, and how to edit and remove them.
