How to Make a Great True/False Quiz on our Free Quiz Maker?

 

The true or false quiz is one of my favorite formats on Quizterra. In this article I will give my thoughts on:

What is True-False quiz?

Generally True/False is a type of quiz where a user has to agree or disagree on the fact or statement that you offer him. Most of the True/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 the titles you can use as templates:

And here is a ready example of such quiz. You can take it right on this page, then go down below and I’ll give a step-by-step guide on how did I create it in the quiz maker.

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.

Flip cards is an amazing mobile format. In the quiz builder, you have a lot of options to customize the design, you can even change “True” and “False” answers to something else. For example – “Truth” and “Lies” instead of “True” and “False”.

Also, you can put the same content into the Personality Quiz Builder.

I recommend you studying this type of quizzes aswell, there we have 8 types of different answers that you can use. To create a True/False quiz in the Personality Quiz Builder you can use:

This is how this looks. I’ve made a quiz with 3 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.

Where and how do I use true-false quiz on my niche websites

If you have a niche website or a blog, you have dozens of ways to include True/False quiz into your content. Let me share 3 main purposes that I make this kind of quizzes for.

  1. Increase the page dwell time of my articles.

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/False quiz that will check how attentive were people while reading. If user gives a wrong answer to the quiz questions – in the commentary I can give the link to the part of article where this topic was explained – check the example below.

  1. Create a separate content unit and promote it.

Quizzes are one of the most shareable types of content among all, so if you make a good one and promote it, you have a guaranteed boost in social signals (likes/shares/pins) and backlinks from other sites. So, since I gather email list, push notification audience, facebook/twitter/pinterest followers for each of my niche sites, from time to time I return them to the site with a cool quiz.

The best way here is to pick a trendy topic. This is what we are trying to do on Quizterra – check Google Trends and search for the 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 his photo generated in the App. The topic was really trendy and even though we were a bit late, the quiz got crazy amount of shares and brought a lot of cheap traffic.

Try the same on your site!

  1. Increase pages/session metrics.

Just as a Trivia, the main idea of True/False quiz is to check the users’ knowledge on a topic. If the user fails to give correct answers to all questions, you can offer him to read another article on your site to learn more or offer to buy a course. Quiz is a great marketing tool and a lot of companies use it as a landing page. The owner of a niche website or a blog can do the same, using a quiz as an engaging tool, revealing the lack of knowledge on the topic and then offering a solution.

Try to promote another article of your site by adding buttons or links to the result page of your quiz.

Now it’s time to create our quiz step-by-step. Click the button and let’s do the quiz together!

How to create a great True-False quiz on Quizterra

Now let me show how to make a True-False quiz in the quiz builder. Let me remind me which quiz are we doing:

  1. Log in to the personal area and find the True/False quiz. Click “Create” button.

Now we must pass 6 simple steps to create our masterpiece. First – let’s fill the Introduction step. Later we will be able to remove preview window and the quiz will start from the first question.

  1. I have filled quiz title, description and uploaded a Gif from giphy.com. It should look great!

Let me give a quick tutorial on how to take a gif from Giphy:

  1. Find the right give by a relevant keyword of what you want to find
  2. Open it
  3. Click “Media”
  4. Take one of the links and put it in the upload window of the quiz builder.

Remember, that should have .gif dimension.

  1. The next step is “Questions and Answers”, where we write down all the questions that our users will need to answer. Remember, how did questions look in the quiz above? After the user clicks the button, the card flips and shows the comment.

So this is how I set up a question:

true false question

I wrote a question, then chose the “True” answer as correct and wrote the small explanation of the correct answer.

To make my quiz look truly awesome, I add images or GIFs to all questions and explanations.

  1. On the “Results” step we are doing the same thing as with other types of quizzes. To make a result personal, we choose the number of correct answers required to see this result.

For example, the first result will show to users that score 0 to 3 correct answers.

Fill title and description add image or GIF to each result.

  1. If you have a premium account on Quizterra, I strongly recommend adding a button to each result. If you do not have anything to promote (like a course from Clickbank, Amazon goods or your own product) put the link to a different article on your site.

Button and lead form are great marketing tools to bring traffic to a specific page of the site, sell a digital product or collect the audience.

  1. On step 4 you can choose a design template that fits your website. We constantly work on new design templates and strive to make the most functional online quiz maker among all. Preview your quiz in every design and choose the template that you like more!

  1. Finally, the Publication step.

If you don’t want your quiz to be published on Quizterra – switch off the first toggle.

To receive the embed code to put the quiz on your site – click “Get embed code”.

You’ll see the code below, but before using it, take a look at other options that we have.

  1. Display Intro. You can start the quiz from the Introduction window (step 1) or straight from the first question. You can try both variants on your site and choose which one is better for your users.
  2. Display social links. Social links are shown in the introduction and result steps. You can switch off our buttons and use your own.
  3. Author, date and view count. Remove this if you don’t want this information to be shown.
  4. Remove branding. If you have a premium account, the quiz will be shown on your site without any links to Quizterra.
  5. Protect from copying. Another amazing feature that is available for premium users. You probably know that almost all web content is getting stolen. Doorways and satellite sites will just steal your articles and use them without any references. But, if you attach the quiz created on Quizterra to your domains, it will not be displayed on any other site that takes your source code.

Edit Your Quiz Anytime

If you wish to edit something, change a design template, add or remove questions, you can do this anytime. Just go back to your personal area and click on the wheel. You can move to any step, changes are getting saved instantly.
