‘Quiz timer’ or ‘question timer’ – what’s the difference?

Quiz timer: This sets a limit on the total time users have to complete the Riddle.

Here’s how scoring works:

  • Quiz: 0 points for each unanswered question. For example, User A answers three questions correctly, gets two wrong, and does not answer one. They would receive 3 pts (3 + 0 + 0).
  • Tap & find: 0 points for each item that is not found. Imagine User A finds all 3 clues on Q1, all 2 clues Q2, 1 clue on Q3 before time runs out. They would receive 6 pts (3 + 2 + 1).
  • Personality test: if the time runs out, your audience members will not receive a result. Instead, they will be prompted to try again. Why? Personality test results are based on a user’s overall responses – answering only some questions will not be accurate.

Question timer: Instead of a total time for the quiz, you can set a limit on the time users have for each question.

In this example, your audience will have 8 seconds to answer each question. The timer warning will flash at 3 seconds – so they have time to make a guess before time runs out.

Individual question timer: You can also set different times for each question.

For example, you can start easy, then get difficult (Q1: 10 seconds, Q2: 8 seconds, etc.).

IMPT: You can use either or both timers – depending on your quiz objectives. However, question timers can never be longer than a quiz timer.
