Can I randomize/shuffle questions and answers?

Want to randomize or shuffle the order of your questions and answers?

We’ve made it easy – now, you can give each quiz taker a new experience every time they take your quiz or personality test.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the ‘Customize’ step
  2. Click on the ‘Quiz options’ or ‘Personality test options’ section
randomize quiz question order

Choose to shuffle the order of:

  • questions (from 1, 2, 3, 4 to 4, 1, 3, 2…)
  • answers (change a, b, c to c, a, b…)
  • or both

Why randomize your quiz questions?

This was a great feature idea – born from chats with our quiz maker community. We had everyone from teachers to sports teams asking us for ways to make it harder to ‘game’ a quiz – by memorizing the right answer order.

Even career coaches or therapists got in on the action – they tend to use our flexible personality tests to help guide prospective clients.

Sure, there are no ‘right or wrong’ answers with a personality test. But they also wanted people to give their true responses, and not try to figure out which answers would result in the ‘best’ result type.

Don’t forget – add a quiz timer

If the shuffle or randomize feature strikes a chord around your use case, we also recommend our quiz timer.

You can put a time limit on the quiz experience:

  • Overall quiz: e.g. “You have 60 seconds to answer all the questions.”
  • Per question: “You have 10 seconds to answer each question.”

A quiz timer is another way to make it harder to Google the right answer on a quiz, or to prevent people from overthinking their personality test responses.

Seeing a quiz timer counting down is a powerful way to get people to stop thinking – and get clicking!
