The true or false quiz is one of my favorite formats on Quizterra. In this article, I will answer the following commonly asked questions:
Generally, a true or false quiz is a type of quiz where a user has to agree or disagree on the fact or statement that you provide. Most of the true or false quizzes that I’ve seen consist of facts, so the user has to determine if these facts are true or false.
Here are some examples of titles you can use as templates:
And here is an example of such a quiz. You can take the quiz right on this page, then scroll down, where I’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how I created it using the quiz maker.
As you can see, this is a special type of quiz that was created especially for true or false questions. The questions are displayed on the flip cards, so when a user clicks the button, the card flips, and the user can see the commentary on the question. When the questions end, the user sees their personalized results page with a calculation of their score.
Flip card is an amazing mobile format. In the quiz builder, you have lots of options to customize the design. You can even change the words “True” and “False” for the answers to something else. For example: “Truth” and “Lies” instead of “True” and “False”.
As you can see, this is a special type of quizzes, created especially for True/False questions. Questions are displayed on the flip cards. When user clicks the button, the card flips, and the user can see the commentary to the question. When questions end, user sees the personalized result page with a calculation of the correct answers.
Also, you can put the same content into the Personality Quiz Builder.
I recommend that you also study this type of quiz, as we have eight different types of answers that you can use. To create a true or false quiz in the Personality Quiz Builder, you can use:
This is how it looks. I’ve made a quiz with three questions to show you all three options.
So, if you like the idea of animated flip cards, use the True/False quiz maker. If you prefer the more “standard” appearance, choose the Personality quiz maker.
If you have a niche website or a blog, you have dozens of ways to include the true or false quiz into your content. Let me share three main reasons I make this type of quiz.
If I make an article about “How to set up Google Analytics” or “How to record a video for YouTube”, I can finish it with a great true or false quiz that will check how attentive people were while reading. If the user gives a wrong answer to one of the quiz questions, I can provide a link to the part of the article where this topic was explained in the commentary. Check out the example below.
Quizzes are one of the most shareable types of content, so if you make a good one and promote it, you’ll have a guaranteed boost in social signals (likes/shares/pins) and backlinks from other sites. So, since I’m gathering an email list, pushing notifications to my audience and gaining Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest followers for each of my niche sites, from time to time, I will get them to return to the site with a cool quiz.
The best strategy here is to pick a trendy topic. This is exactly what we are trying to do on Quizterra. We check Google Trends and search for topics of current interest.
Here are some examples:
One of the most successful quizzes of this year was about the FaceApp, where we asked users to guess the celebrity by the photo generated in the app. The topic was really trendy, and even though we were a bit late, the quiz got a crazy amount of shares and brought a lot of cheap traffic to the website.
Try the same on your site!
Just as with trivia quizzes, the main idea of a true or false quiz is to check the user’s knowledge of a topic. If the user fails to give correct answers to all the questions, you can direct them to read another article on your site to learn more or offer them the opportunity to buy a course. Quizzes are a great marketing tool and a lot of companies use them as a landing page. The owner of a niche website or a blog can do the same, using a quiz as an engagement tool to reveal the user’s lack of knowledge on the topic and then offer them a solution.
Try to promote another article on your site by adding buttons or links to the results page of your quiz.

Make a True/False Quiz

Now we must complete six simple steps to create our masterpiece. First, let’s complete the Introduction step. Later, we will be able to remove the preview window and the quiz will start from the first question.
Let me give you a quick tutorial on how to take a GIF from Giphy:
Remember that it should have the “.gif” extension at the end of it.
So, this is how I set up a question:
I wrote a question, then chose the “True” answer as correct and wrote a small explanation of the correct answer.
To make my quiz look truly awesome, I added images or GIFs to all of the questions and explanations.
For example, the first result will be shown to users who score 0 to 3 correct answers.
Fill in the title and description, then add an image or GIF to each result.
Button and lead form are great marketing tools to bring traffic to a specific page of your site, sell a digital product or collect audience information.
