How to create quizzes on Facebook on a computer

Before showing you how to create quizzes on facebook, it is my concern to inform you that on the Web there are several solutions suitable for the purpose, but the reliable ones are few. The solution that I will show you shortly turns out to be among the most reliable, but there are many others (available both in the form of online services and apps) that could hide malware and various risks for your privacy. Therefore, always pay attention to the apps you use and only rely on those deemed most reliable.

That said, to create a quiz on Facebook you can resort to using a tool called Quizzes for Pages, which allows you to create quizzes and tests in a few simple steps. Its use is recommended by PC, although, as we will see further on, it is also possible to use it from mobile.

The tool in question allows you to create a quiz for free, albeit with limits, for example, the possibility of allowing participation in the quiz only in one defined number of people and to be able to examine a maximum of 40 answers given by users.

To eliminate these limits, you need to take out a subscription, starting from € 7 / month. With the premium version you will therefore unlock some very interesting features, including the ability to create an unlimited number of quizzes, to have more participants (depending on the subscription chosen) and much more.

Regardless of how you intend to proceed, first go to the Quizzes for Pages main page and, if necessary, enter your Facebook account credentials to log in. Then, once inside the Facebook page dedicated to the tool, click on the button Use the app, in such a way as to direct you to the official website.

On the next screen, click on the item Log in with Facebook and wait for the procedure to complete, choosing the account with which to access the platform. At this point, you are finally ready to create your quiz!

In the first screen, dedicated to the initial configuration, you can set the title of the quiz, his language and some phrases welcome / thank you, by filling in the appropriate sections.

  • Introduction: section that appears to the user before the start of the quiz.
  • Thank you text: appears after the user has finished the test.
  • Quiz text closed: appears when the quiz is closed or no longer available.
  • Footer text: appears at the bottom of the page and usually contains warnings.

For each of these sections you can configure at your choice different parameters concerning the text. For example, you can choose the dimension and the color some text or whether to insert some link, from the emoticon or of Images. Once you’ve finished editing the intro section of the test, click the button Next: Add Questions to continue with the insertion of the questions.

Within the next screen you can set all the questions of your interest, also adjusting some additional parameters. First, then type the question into the section Question and choose whether to import an image or a video using the buttons on the side on the right. Also, by clicking on the button “TO” you will be able to adjust some settings related to text formatting.

In the presence of the section Question type, you can choose the type of response that the user will have to provide.

  • Multiple choices: the user can select the correct answer from some proposed solutions.
  • Checkboxes: the user can select all the answers he deems correct.
  • Text box: the user must enter an open answer, writing the solution in the appropriate section.

Depending on the solution you have adopted, enter the options (i.e. the various solutions proposed) or specify the correct answer directly. Finally, you will notice two additional options.

  • Required questions: to be ticked if the participant cannot continue with the quiz without having given the answer.
  • Shuffle options order: to be ticked if you want the order of the proposed solutions to vary in each quiz.

Once you’re done editing, click the button Save, then click the button + Add Question, if you want to add more questions, otherwise on the button Next: Preview to continue.

Within the next screen you will be shown a preview of the quiz and you can change some parameters. Inside the section Layout, you can choose whether to show the title of the quiz (by enabling / removing the appropriate tick next to the item Quiz title) and, by clicking on the colored box next to the check, you can choose the color of the screen.
