We’re proud to introduce our quiz leaderboard feature for Riddle’s online quiz maker. A quiz leaderboard generator was one of the most popular requests from our community – so we’re happy to deliver!
(Updated: check out our newest quiz leaderboard – included in our Wordpress plug-in.)
Now, quizzes are proven to be awesome at engagement. They provoke, challenge, and entertain each quiz taker – and gives them a result they can share with friends.
Using a quiz leaderboard extends that – and lets each person compare their rankings with every other quiz taker.
Our quiz leaderboard works with our lead generation technology:
- Create a quiz
- Add a lead generation form
- Embed a quiz leaderboard on your site
- Each quiz taker who fills in the form will be added to the quiz leaderboard
Super flexible – you can customize our quiz leaderboard extensively so that every quiz taker gets a unique message:
- “You scored better than XX% of quiz takers – congratulations!”
- “You missed the top 10 by YY%. Try again to crack the top 10!”
Why add a quiz leaderboard for your quiz?
- More engagement: As humans, we’re a competitive bunch – and we love to see how we rank/compare with everybody else. Adding a quiz leaderboard will trigger the same behavior from the video games of yesterday – people playing and replaying your quiz to get the highest score.
- More virality: This public ranking of quiz takers translates into more virality. Imagine Bob from Boston took your quiz – and scored in the top 3% of all test takers. He’d be pretty chuffed – and would be far more likely to share his results (and your quiz link) with his friend.
- More flexibility: A quiz leaderboard also gives you added capabilities for additional contests and giveaways. You could challenge your audience – and say that only the top 10 finishers will receive a price. (Here’s more info <LINK> how you use Riddle’s quiz maker for quiz contests.)
How to create a quiz leaderboard?
Currently you have two ways to add a quiz leaderboard:
- Wordpress sites: You can use our plugin to easily create and use your leaderboard… no coding required. <LINK to blog post>
- All other sites: With just a little bit of coding knowledge, you can easily modify our sample PHP code and embed your leaderboard on any type of site. (Read more)

Have ideas for new quiz leaderboard features?
Now – this is just our first version of our quiz leaderboard generator. It only tracks and displays scores for a particular quiz.
But we’d love to hear what other features we should add for future versions. We’re already thinking:
- Cumulative ranking – tracking scores across multiple quizzes (perfect for a weekly quiz league, for example)
- Time taken metric – we’ll let you display how fast each quiz taker was in completing your quiz. You could you use this as a tie-breaker – if two people get 100%, the fastest person is ranked higher.
What else should we create?
