What are the different types of quizzes?

We have written a short and sweet blogpost about best practices when creating a quiz! But let’s dive into the most popular types of interactive content on Riddle and their usecases!

Quizzes and their usecase

Quizzes ask questions with right or wrong answers – and give each user a score based on how well they did. Of course, there are lots of ways you can take this concept – let’s dive into some of the most popular variants and use cases.

  • Trivia or IQ quiz: The classic ‘how much do you know?’ quiz, these types of quizzes can be used for almost any subject, and feature multiple choice and free text entry questions (often with a quiz timer).
  • True/false quiz: This is a close cousin to the trivia contest, but with just two answer choices (you guess it – true/false). The simplicity of the concept is irresistible to users – plus lends itself to rapid-fire quizzes, with more (but shorter) questions.
  • Order it quiz: Sometimes, you want to challenge your audience with sequence-type questions. It could be something like ‘Arrange the Star Wars movies by release date’. An order it quiz is an interesting alternative to the classic multiple choice quiz format – we highly recommend adding it to your quiz tool kit.
  • Tap and find quiz: Sure, asking quiz questions with answer buttons are great – but there are times where the answers are IN the image. Try a tap and find quiz when you want to have your quiz takers tap and find the correct answers (hence the name) in each question image. Far more interactive than a classic quiz, you’ll get higher engagement rates – as users tend to love the unusual format
  • Timed quiz: Adding a quiz timer is perfect if you’re creating a quiz contest or promotion. Timers add a game show element of adrenaline – plus giving users 10 seconds or so per question limits the temptation to Google the answer. You’ll get a more accurate sense of what each quiz taker actually knows.
  • Quiz generator: One last option – you could create a quiz generator to continually show a new set of questions to every quiz taker. Standard quizzes include a fixed set of questions – but a quiz generator quiz randomly shows new questions to each quiz taker.

Personality quizzes and their usecase

You can use personality quizzes for a wide range of usecases and in many different ways!

Personality quizzes for marketers

You can use a personality quiz to give product recommendations:
We’ve seen many brands and businesses use personality tests for this – after they answer your questions, you can recommend the product(s) that best match their needs. This quiz type works especially well when you give each user a targeted discount (“Save 25% on product X”) with our call to action buttons.

Personality quizzes for therapists and coaches

You can also benefit from using a personality quiz:
More and more counsellors are moving their practices online, and using personality tests to find their potential clients. Quizzes like “Are you really suffering from anxiety?” or “Why is my partner driving me crazy?” are great at catching people’s attention.
Not every quiz taker will be a client – but smart therapists use personality tests to filter out people who don’t need their services, and only send follow up emails to the best matches.

Another popular option, personality tests are ideal for health-related questions:
They can work almost like a symptom checker (e.g. “Am I depressed?” or “How healthy am I… really?”.
Health quizzes are a good example where it’s okay to ignore our ‘6-10 question’ best practice. People who engage with your quiz will be keenly interested to discover their health result – so you can ask up to 25-35 questions with no drop-off in completion rates.

Personality quizzes for Publishers

Changing gear a bit, never underestimate the power of a personality test for light, fun entertainment. This is how Buzzfeed made their mark asking things like “What Friends character are you?”. We love their work, but their software is 100% consumer-focused, so Buzzfeed isn’t designed for marketers.

Personality quizzes for schools and universities

And lastly, another interesting vertical, personality tests have helped schools guide and assess their students:
For example, Aston University used their ‘What master’s course is right for you?’ quiz to suggest the right program tailored for each quiz taker’s individual interests.
