FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are all questions in a video one quiz?

Not necessarily. All questions grouped together at one time in a video are one quiz. If you add quiz questions to multiple timecodes in your video, that video will have multiple quizzes. Each quiz is identified by the video it is in and the timecode where it shows up.

Is there a way to pull a report that shows everyone who took the quiz and how they scored?

Right now there isn't a way to pull a report listing all viewers who took a quiz and their scores. Viewer level quiz information is only viewable on the User Profile.

How do I poll viewers if I have to specify a correct answer?

If you are using quizzes for a poll, don't specify an answer and turn "Show review screen" off under Submit Options. This way viewers can take the poll, but will not be presented any results.

Can I ask other types of questions, like text inputs or multi-select?

The quiz feature only supports radio button single answer questions right now.
