How to Make a Quiz in PowerPoint

powerpoint online quiz

Table of Contents

powerpoint online quiz

Step 2. Create the question and the correct and incorrect answer slide

To make a question slide, move on to the next slide and type the question in the text box. Instead of questions, you can also use incomplete sentences, phrases, or mathematical equations. Add a picture that will illustrate your ideas well and serve visual communication.

Creating the question slide in PowerPoint

Add reply options to your question. Go to the Insert tab and click the Text Box button. Type in the first option, then continue to add the rest of them in a presentation.

Multiple-choice questions typically contain one correct answer (also called the key) and three wrong answers (also called distractors). However, you are free to add as many options as you like.

Creating the answer slide in PowerPoint

Compose the next question-and-answer slides in the same way.

Step 3: Create the correct answer slide

Add an additional correct answer slide after your first question slide saying that the learner has chosen the right answer. Enter a congratulatory message, such as “Correct answer!,” “Right answer!,” “That’s right!,” “Correct!,” or “Well done!” In the Content box , add a phrase that will encourage students to continue, like “ Go to the next question!,” “Continue!,” or “Let’s move on! ”

Creating the right answer slide in PowerPoint

Step 4: Create the wrong answer slide

Add the next slide for the wrong answer, which will be displayed when test takers make an incorrect choice. Add another PowerPoint slide and type in the relevant text in the Title Box , like Oops, that’s incorrect… But this time give your learners a chance to go back to the quiz question slide and try again. So, this is what our incorrect answer slide will look like:

Creating the wrong answer slide in PowerPoint

To make knowledge checks even more effective for learners, give feedback on each incorrect answer. Helpful information presented on your feedback slide can explain certain questions and answers in more detail.

Creating the feedback slide in PowerPoint

Continue adding the correct and the incorrect answer slides after each question slide.

Step 5: Add navigation to your quiz

Now it’s time to link the correct and incorrect answer slides to the relevant feedback slides. To do this, click on the Answer Text Box , then go to the Insert tab and tap on Hyperlink . In the open window, choose Place in This Document and select the necessary “ That’s correct ” or “ That’s incorrect ” PowerPoint slide.

Adding navigation to the quiz in PowerPoint

To allow continued navigation from a feedback slide, add a hyperlink to the “ Continue ” text. Once again, you’ll need to repeat the actions for every single slide, because feedback slides should lead to a new quiz question every time.

Adding navigation to the quiz in PowerPoint 2

To let your audience return to the question presentation slide, open the slide for incorrect answers and click on the “ Try again ” text. Add a hyperlink to the question where the learner made a mistake. This time, go to the Insert tab and click Actions . In the opened drop-down menu, select Hyperlink to → Last Slide Viewed . You can see the final result in the slide show mode.

Adding navigation to the quiz in PowerPoint 3

Now our short quiz in PowerPoint is ready.

How to Create an Interactive Quiz in PowerPoint

As you can see, PowerPoint doesn’t provide purpose-built features for quizzes — it can take a while to create quiz question slides, feedback slides for every single answer, and link slides with each other manually. Here are some more things that are missing from PowerPoint:

  • It falls short when it comes to creating complex types of interactive quiz questions like drag-and-drop, matching, multiple responses, surveys, and sequence questions. 
  • It lacks the functionality to track a learner’s progress, such as their completion status or the number of points they’ve scored.
  • Monitoring who takes your quiz, their success rate, and analyzing their learning progress isn’t feasible.
  • Distributing a PowerPoint quiz also has limitations; it’s not directly shareable on your website, a social media blog, or through email, particularly to individuals who don’t have access to PowerPoint.

Therefore, when you need to build a reliable and interactive quiz that keeps the audience engaged, it’s better to use special authoring tools . Below, we’ll explain and show you how much easier and faster it is to create quizzes with iSpring QuizMaker.

How to Create a Quiz Extremely Fast with iSpring QuizMaker (Method 2)

We decided to improve our Mt. Everest Quiz with iSpring QuizMaker , a simple authoring tool, and this is what we got:

Mountain Everest quiz

With iSpring QuizMaker, creating a quiz becomes an easy task. The tool provides you with 14 question templates. Read these articles to learn more about some of them:

  • How to Create a Multiple-Choice Quiz
  • How to Create a True or False Quiz
  • How to Make a Matching Quiz in Minutes
  • How to Create a Hotspot Question for an Online Quiz
  • How to Make a Drag-and-Drop Quiz in 7 Steps
  • How to Create a Likert Scale Survey
  • How to Create a Fill-in-the-Blank Quiz that Works
  • How to Create a Drop-Down Quiz in 7 Steps

Such a comprehensive variety helps gamify the learning process, engage learners and enhance their experience.

In many situations, knowledge cannot be tested with basic multiple-choice quizzes only. For example, tests on historical topics require an understanding of how events evolved over time. That’s why we included a sequence question in our renewed quiz.

Sequence question in iSpring Suite

Sometimes more than one key answer should be chosen. These multiple response questions cannot be created with a PowerPoint presentation only. But we didn’t discard the idea, and used iSpring QuizMaker for this purpose.

How to Create a Quiz with a Score in PowerPoint

There are no tests without assessment; that’s why it’s essential that your quizzes evaluate students’ results. As we’ve already mentioned, PPT doesn’t have such features. That’s why we only added a neutral last slide that did not indicate whether the assessment had been passed or failed.

Quiz final slide in PowerPoint

On the contrary, the enhanced Mt. Everest Quiz grades learners’ results and shows their score, both during the assessment and at the end.

Quiz final slide in iSpring Suite

To make your questions gradable, all you need to do is to choose the By passing score under Scoring Type in the Properties dialogue box of iSpring QuizMaker and set the passing score you need. By default, the passing score is 80%.

Quiz scoring in iSpring SUite

In iSpring QuizMaker, passing result slides are created by default, so there’s no need to add them manually. You can change the slide message according to your personal taste or needs, and add a graphic image or photo, audio or video.

Customizing the final slide in iSpring Suite

Once you finish, you can choose publishing options. For example, you can publish your interactive quiz to HTML5. This format will ensure that your learners have the best browsing experience, no matter what device they use.

Publishing a quiz in iSpring Suite

Note: To collect quiz results, you don’t even need an LMS that automatically tracks learner progress. If you don’t use a learning platform, simply choose whether to get results via email or have them sent to your server in the iSpring QuizMaker Properties window.

How to Make Quizzes Cheat Proof

Effective eLearning and eTesting are all about the details. iSpring QuizMaker provides authors with additional capabilities, but remains completely easy to use. Let us share a couple of tips on how to squeeze more out of it.

Additional capabilities of iSpring Suite

For example, you can set the options like assigning scores and penalties for individual questions or shuffling answer options to keep students on their toes. You can also set the number of attempts allowed and limit the time to take the test in order to prevent learners from cheating or searching for the answer choices online.

Feedback and branching in iSpring Suite

Note: iSpring QuizMaker also provides you with extended editing options, so you can get creative and change the design of all the slides or experiment with typing fonts.

Download a PowerPoint Quiz Template

While making a quiz in PPT is an option, its functionality is limited, and it can be very difficult to create. With this classic software, you can only add multiple-choice quizzes to your PowerPoint slide deck. Download the Mt. Everest Quiz source file to repeat the same steps mentioned earlier and practice creating quizzes in PowerPoint. 

To author an interactive assessment that really tests students’ knowledge and engages your audience, more innovative software is required. Try iSpring QuizMaker for free and start creating engaging interactive quizzes in PPT right now.

ClassPoint is free and the Basic plan includes 5 different kinds of interactive quiz types — Multiple Choice , Short Answer , Word Cloud , Slide Drawing and Image Upload , while the Pro plan includes more quiz types including Fill in the Blanks , Audio Record and Video Upload . We will show you all of them in this article, including use cases for each quiz type!

Turn Your PowerPoint Slide Into An Interactive Multiple Choice Question

To follow along, first download ClassPoint , and continue reading! 🔽 Let’s get started!

1: Add Button to Turn your Slide into an Interactive Quiz Question

To turn any PowerPoint slide into interactive Multiple Choice questions first add the question as text on your slide .

Then, click on the Inknoe ClassPoint tab on your PowerPoint ribbon up top. To make your Multiple Choice question interactive, click on the Multiple Choice icon, and a button will appear on your slide.

The question settings will open on the right where you can set the number of options along with the  correct answer(s) . You can also set the Play Options of your choice, and that’s it! You have now successfully turned your slide into an interactive quiz question.

2: Run the Interactive Quiz in PowerPoint Slideshow

Now that you have created your interactive Multiple Choice quiz in PowerPoint, let’s run it with your students!

When you begin your presentation in Slideshow mode, you will notice a  class code  appears on the top right-hand corner. This is the code your audience will use to join your class. You can use a random class code generated for each session, or you can create your own saved class with its unique class code .

Students can join your class on any device at www.classpoint.app by typing in the class code and their name, or scan the QR code provided on screen. Once they have joined your class, they will see your slides on their devices, and are ready to answer any interactive quiz questions!

When you are ready to run your question, click on the question button to begin receiving responses from your students. Students will be prompted to submit their responses. You will be able to see the real-time responses on your screen. Tips: If you want to keep the responses hidden until everyone has submitted, hide them with the eye icon, or minimize the window.

When all of your students have answered your question, you can “ Close Submissions “, and view the colorful bar graph displaying your audience responses! Click the toggle to reveal the correct answer , and click on any of the answer choices to show which students submitted it. You can also award stars to your students who answered the questions correctly!

Tip: Create a saved class so your students can join with the same name and class code every time.

3: Review Activity Submissions After Class

How to Make a Quiz for Your Online Classes Using PowerPoint

How to Make a Quiz for Your Online Classes Using PowerPoint | Quick Tips & Tutorial for your presentations

Sometimes it is not easy to get your students involved when giving a presentation. One of the best ways to capture their attention is creating interactive quizzes and questions, so they will interact with the slides. This way, the learning process will turn into something fun and amazing for children.  If you want to learn how to make some interactive quizzes for your pupils using PowerPoint presentations , read this tutorial. It’s an easy task, and it will only take you a few minutes! 

Creating the Main Page of the Quiz

Creating the “right answer” slide, creating the “wrong answer” slide, linking slides.

  • Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  • You can create or select the slide to which you want to add the interactive quiz.
  • Now type the title and the subtitle of your question using text boxes.
  • You may want to add some images or illustrations to the slide. As you are working with children, you could add some adorable images of animals, for example. If you have issues with how to add, crop or mask images , you can read this tutorial. For our example, we have included three different illustrations that represent the answer options.
  • The next step is adding button-like shapes to your different answers. At a later stage, you’ll need to link those buttons to other slides.
  • We decided to use circles here. In Insert, select Shapes → Basic Shapes → Oval.
  • Click and drag the cursor to add the shape. Remember to press Shift while dragging to create a perfect circular shape.
  • To make the look of the shape coherent with the rest of the slides, it is a good idea to use the colors of the theme. To change the color inside the shape, click on Shape Fill and select one.
  • Likewise, if you want another border color, click on Shape Outline and find a new one.
  • To give the circles the aspects of buttons, you can add some effects to the shape (e.g. shadow, reflection, glow, soft edges...). Select Shape Effects and explore all the possibilities.
  • You’ll need to add some more buttons, as the quiz has more than one option. To do so, click on the shape. Hold Ctrl and Shift and drag the new circle. These two buttons will keep the circles aligned. Pay attention to the guiding lines. Thanks to them you can make sure that everything is in place.
  • Now we need to add a letter per button, to name them and to make clear that there are three options. Simply click on each shape and write!
  • If you don’t like the font, the size or color, you can change them using the Font options.

To surprise your audience, it is necessary to add two new slides. We are going to call the first one the “right answer” slide. This is the one telling that you have given the correct response. The second one is called the “wrong answer” slide, and means that the student has failed answering correctly. Let’s focus on the first one. 

  • When you are in the question slide, select Insert. Click on the New Slide down arrow and the program will display a drop-down menu that shows the different sort of designs of the template. Choose one.
  • When designing and formatting the slide, remember to use the fonts and colors of the theme.
  • Giving encouraging messages here is key. Add a check mark symbol and a text reading “Well done!”, “Yes!”, “Correct” or “You’ve made it.”

Now it is time to add the “wrong answer” slide. You’ll need to repeat a process that is very similar to the previous one. 

  • Once again, add a new slide: Insert → New slide → drop-down menu. Choose your preferred layout and format as needed.
  • Here we will add a symbol like “X” to let children know that the answer is incorrect. Add a message that supports the symbol, such as: “Try again”, “Oops!”.
  • As the student answered incorrectly, we need to make sure that he or she goes to the question once again and gives a correct response. Thus, create a button to redirect the child to the “question slide.” You can try adding a message such as “Try again.”
  • Simply add a shape (as in the section above) and format as needed.

Adding links and hyperlinks can be a little bit confusing, although you can learn about it thanks to our tutorial How to Insert a Hyperlink in PowerPoint . For this section, you’ll need to link the “question” slide to the “correct answer” and “wrong answer” slides. Don’t worry, you’ll see how to do it step by step. 

  • It’s time to add a link to each button in the question slide.
  • Here, the two first options are wrong, so they must lead you to the “wrong answer” slide.
  • Click a couple of times and select the text of the first button.
  • Click Insert. Then go to the Link menu and click on Link. A popup will appear.
  • You can add a link from different sources: an existing page, the presentation you are creating, a new document or an e-mail address.
  • Double click on Place in This Document.
  • Select the “wrong answer” slide and click OK. You’ll see the slide preview so you don’t get confused.
  • As option B is incorrect, you’ll need to repeat the same steps for that option.
  • Option C is the target answer. Thus, it’s time to link it to the “correct answer” slide.
  • Once again, select the text in the C option button.
  • Click Insert. Then go to the Link menu and click on Link. A popup window appears.
  • Select Place in This Document.
  • Choose the “correct answer slide” and then click OK.
  • You have linked the three options with the “wrong” or “correct answer” slide, congratulations! You are almost there. The last thing to do is to create a link to direct the student from the “wrong answer” to the “question” slide once again.
  • Go to the “wrong answer” slide and spot the “Try again” button.
  • Select it, click Insert → Link → Insert link →. Place in This Document.
  • Choose the “question” slide.
  • Your quiz rocks!

The Benefits of Making a Quiz in PowerPoint

Quizzes are a great way to engage and entertain your audience while also providing valuable insights into their comprehension of a topic. By using PowerPoint to create your quiz, you can take advantage of the software's robust features and design capabilities, all while keeping your audience focused and entertained.

One of the biggest benefits of creating a quiz in PowerPoint is the ability to easily customize the design and layout. With a variety of templates and themes available, you can create a visually appealing quiz that matches your brand or topic. Additionally, PowerPoint allows you to add multimedia elements such as images, videos, and audio to enhance the quiz experience for your audience.

Another advantage of using PowerPoint for quizzes is the ability to track and analyze results. PowerPoint offers built-in tools for tracking quiz scores and analyzing responses, allowing you to gain valuable insights into your audience's understanding of the topic. This information can be used to improve future presentations and quizzes, ensuring that your audience is getting the most out of your content.

Understanding the Different Types of Quizzes

Before diving into the steps of creating a quiz in PowerPoint, it's essential to understand the different types of quizzes you can make. Some popular styles include:

  • Multiple-choice quizzes
  • True/False quizzes
  • Fill-in-the-blank quizzes
  • Matching quizzes
  • Short answer quizzes

Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, and you should choose the one that best fits your goal and audience's interests.

It's important to note that some types of quizzes may be more suitable for certain subjects or topics. For example, multiple-choice quizzes may work well for testing knowledge of facts and definitions, while short answer quizzes may be better for assessing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Additionally, the length and complexity of the quiz should also be considered, as some types may be more time-consuming to create and grade than others.

Steps to Create a Quiz in PowerPoint

Let's walk through the steps to create a quiz in PowerPoint:

  • Launch PowerPoint and open a new presentation.
  • Click on "Insert" in the menu bar and select "New Slide."
  • Choose the type of slide layout you need for the quiz question (e.g., multiple-choice).
  • Add the quiz question and answer choices to the slide.
  • Repeat steps 2-4 for all the questions in the quiz.
  • Customize the design of the quiz using PowerPoint's formatting features.
  • Add interactive elements such as audio and video to make the quiz more engaging.
  • Save and distribute the quiz to your audience.

With these simple steps, you can create a professional and effective quiz that'll engage and entertain your audience while also providing valuable insights into their comprehension of a topic.

It's important to keep in mind that when creating a quiz in PowerPoint, you should aim to make it challenging but not too difficult. You want your audience to feel challenged and engaged, but not frustrated or discouraged. Additionally, it's a good idea to include feedback for each question, so your audience can learn from their mistakes and improve their understanding of the topic.

Another tip is to use images and graphics to enhance the visual appeal of your quiz. This can help to break up the text and make the quiz more visually interesting. You can also use animations and transitions to add some fun and excitement to the quiz, but be careful not to overdo it and distract from the content.

How to Add Questions and Answers to Your Quiz

The most critical component of any quiz is the questions and answers. Here is how to add them to your PowerPoint quiz:

Adding Quiz Questions

  • Open a new slide in your PowerPoint presentation.
  • Choose the type of question you want to ask and select an appropriate layout.
  • Add the question to the slide.

Adding Answer Choices

  • Select "Insert" from the PowerPoint menu bar.
  • Click "Shapes" and select the shape that suits the type of answer you want, e.g. for multiple choice quiz you can choose a circle or square shape.
  • Type each answer choice in the textbox(s) inside the shape(s).
  • Add a hyperlink to each shape to hyperlink it with the respective question when clicked.

It is important to note that when creating quiz questions, you should ensure that they are clear and concise. Avoid using complex language or asking multiple questions in one. Additionally, when adding answer choices, make sure they are all plausible options and avoid using answers that are obviously incorrect. This will ensure that your quiz is effective in testing the knowledge of your audience.

Creating Interactive Elements for Your Quiz

Adding interactive elements to your quiz can enhance its excitement and entertainment value. Think about how you could incorporate audio, video, animations, and other interactive elements to your PowerPoint quiz. Here are some ways to create interactive elements:

  • Add animations to emphasize correct answers.
  • Incorporate sound effects for right and wrong answers.
  • Embed videos to help illustrate a point or expand on a question.
  • Use transitions to create an irritating or dramatic effect leading to the correct answer.

Another way to create interactive elements for your quiz is to include interactive images. You can use images that require the user to click on certain areas to reveal the answer or provide additional information. This can add an extra layer of engagement to your quiz and make it more visually appealing. Additionally, you can also include interactive charts or graphs that allow users to manipulate the data and see the results in real-time. This can be a great way to test their knowledge and understanding of the material.

Customizing the Design of Your Quiz

PowerPoint offers a wide variety of formatting tools to help create a quiz that's visually exciting and engaging. Here are some design hacks to customize your visuals:

  • Use the right color palette to grab attention and enhance memory recall.
  • Apply different themes and fonts for your quiz slides to match the branding of the subject matter.
  • Use images strategically to convey your message more effectively.

Another way to customize the design of your quiz is to use animations and transitions. Adding animations to your quiz can make it more interactive and engaging for your audience. You can use animations to highlight important information, create visual interest, and keep your audience focused on the content. Additionally, using transitions between slides can help create a seamless flow and make your quiz feel more polished and professional.

Adding Audio and Video to Your Quiz

To add audio or video to your PowerPoint quiz, follow these simple steps:

  • Select the slide where you want to add the multimedia file.
  • Click on "Insert" on the PowerPoint menu bar and select "Audio" or "Video."
  • Select the file from your computer and click "Insert."
  • Resize and reposition the file as needed to match your desired layout.
  • Adjust the multimedia settings to customize its playback settings.

Tips for Creating Engaging Quiz Content

Here are some tips to make your quiz content engaging:

  • Keep the questions short and simple.
  • Choose a topic that resonates with your audience.
  • Have a mix of easy and difficult questions to keep your audience interested.
  • Use humor or pop culture references to lighten the mood and make the quiz more relatable.

Sharing and Distributing Your PowerPoint Quiz

Here are some tips to help you share and distribute your quiz:

  • Save your PowerPoint presentation as a PDF or PowerPoint Show for easy distribution.
  • Share the quiz on your website, social media platforms, or via email.
  • Consider making a separate results slide so that your audience can see their score and review the correct answers.

Testing, Tracking, and Analyzing Results of Your Quiz

Tracking and analyzing the results of your PowerPoint quiz is essential to assessing the effectiveness of your content and improving future quizzes. Here are some ways to keep track of your audience's engagement and performance:

  • Use PowerPoint's built-in presentation mode and note-take to write down what works in real-time.
  • Include a form at the end of the quiz asking for feedback to help you improve your future quizzes.
  • Record screen-caps of participant's results to analyze usage growth.

Troubleshooting Common Issues When Making a PowerPoint Quiz

Creating quizzes in PowerPoint can be fun, but it can also present some challenges. Here are some common issues to look out for when making your quiz and how to solve them:

  • Ensure all hyperlinks are working correctly.
  • Test your multimedia files before sharing the quiz to ensure their proper integration.
  • Ensure consistency in the presentation design and formatting.
  • Proofread the quiz two or more times for typos, grammatical inaccuracies, and misspellings.

Alternatives to Using PowerPoint for Creating Quizzes

  • Online quiz makers like Kahoot, Quizlet, and Google Forms.
  • Specialized quiz-making software like Articulate Storyline and Adobe Captivate.
  • Manually coding an HTML quiz from scratch.
