Whatever your aim, creating a quiz in PowerPoint is easy with this short tutorial. You'll learn how to create a simple quiz with multiple answer choices. You can create more quizzes using VBA programming within PowerPoint or the Custom Shows feature, but if you want to make it simple and create a quiz that requires no extra programming skills, design slides with questions and links to right and wrong answers.
Instructions in this article apply to PowerPoint 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010; and PowerPoint for Microsoft 365.
Enhance Your Presentation With a Quiz
There are so many ways a quiz can enhance your PowerPoint presentation. Here are a few ways to use quizzes to teach, inform, and engage your audience:
- Use a quiz created in PowerPoint after a business presentation as an excuse to give away gifts to those who provide the right answers.
- Create a basic quiz in PowerPoint for children in elementary school.
- Create a quiz as an ice-breaker at a party or an orientation program.
Design Your First Quiz
Before you create a quiz in PowerPoint, put together a list of questions. To make your quiz the best it can be, research and compile questions that bring out the best in your audience. Choose questions to have only one correct answer. Five questions in a presentation is a good number to start with.
In a quiz, each question requires a minimum of three slides — the question slide, a slide with the correct answer, and a slide for each incorrect answer. In this tutorial, a picture is used for each question to add visual content and relevance to the quiz.
Begin Your First Slide
To get started on your quiz, open PowerPoint and create a new blank presentation. Insert a new slide using the Title Only layout, type your question in the Title placeholder, and insert a picture in your slide.
Add two text boxes for a True and False quiz. Or add three or more textboxes for a Multiple Choice quiz. One text box contains the right answer and the other text boxes contain wrong answers. Make sure that you do not provide a second answer that is correct or even partially correct to avoid confusion.
For a more exciting look, consider using WordArt , instead of regular text boxes for your multiple choice answers.
Create a Correct Answer Slide
Create a new slide for the correct answer. Be sure to provide a text box or some sort of navigation that leads viewers to the next question slide. You'll add a hyperlink to go to the next question slide after all your quiz slides are finished.
Create a Wrong Answer Slide
Create another slide that tells your audience that they've selected a wrong answer. Provide a text box or navigation element that leads viewers back to the question slide and give them a second chance to get the right answer to the question.
Add Hyperlinks to Slides
After you've created all of the question and answer slides, it's time to create hyperlinks between those slides.
On the question slides, select the text box that contains the correct answer. Press Ctrl + K (Windows) or Cmd + K (Mac) on your keyboard to open the Insert Hyperlink dialog box. Select Place in This Document and choose the slide that contains the correct answer.
After you've linked to the slide with the right answer, select the text boxes for the wrong answers and create links to the slides that contain the wrong answers.
On the answer slides, add hyperlinks so that your audience advances to the next question if they answered correctly or are redirected back to the question if they chose the wrong answer.

How to Make a Quiz in PowerPoint?
How to Create a Quiz Right in PowerPoint (Method 1)
While PowerPoint might not be the first tool that comes to mind when thinking about quiz creation, it can be surprisingly versatile. If you have no other tools at hand, we’ll walk you through the process of leveraging PowerPoint’s features for creating a quiz. If you would like to explore PowerPoint features on your Mac, feel free to learn how to install Windows on it.
How to Create a Multiple-Choice Question in PowerPoint
A multiple-choice quiz is the fundamental question type. It offers participants distinct choices, making the answers quantifiable and easy to evaluate. Follow these 5 steps if you want to make a quiz in PowerPoint Presentation:
Step 1: Create the front page of the quiz
Open a new slide in your presentation and type the title of your assessment. Ours will be called “Mt. Everest Quiz.” You can also add some additional textual data like we did.
Add an image that will be in line with your topic. To do this, click the Insert tab and choose Pictures . Or you can do this by simply clicking on the picture icon in the center of your slide.
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.
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.
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! ”
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
To learn how to get started with iSpring QuizMaker, watch this short video tutorial:
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.
On the contrary, the enhanced Mt. Everest Quiz grades learners’ results and shows their score, both during the assessment and at the end.
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%.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To dive deeper into the process of creating assessments, read our post about how to make online quizzes .
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.
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.

Quiz Ideas for your Presentation
02.21.20 • #powerpoint #quiz #trivia #ideas.
It's no secret that people love participating in quizzes. That's why they are so perfect for engaging your audience when you're doing a presentation. In this article, you'll learn what kind of quizzes there are and why you should use them. Also, we prepared a list of 50 creative questions about all kinds of topics that you can use for your next presentation or quiz night!
Types of Quizzes and Quiz Ideas
There are many types of quizzes. However, the main distinction is between trivia and personality quizzes. The names are pretty much self-explanatory. In the Trivia Quiz , there are questions about knowledge and facts. In a presentation, they can be used for checking what your audience already knows about the topic you are about to present. But they are also perfect for testing your attendees knowledge after your presentation, making sure they remember what you just talked about. You can also just throw trivia question into the main part of your presentation, just as a little playful element. With Personality Quizzes on the other hand, there is no right or wrong. You're asking about a personality trait, hobby, or whatever else you'd like to know about your audience. Those are perfect as ice breakers in the beginning, and for connecting with your audience instantly. They can be as serious or as fun as you want them to be. The last category here is the Yes-/No-Quiz or True-/False-Quiz . You can either ask personality or trivia questions with this category. When formulating them, be sure that they can be answered with either Yes/True or No/False, and add a "Not certain" option if necessary.
How to integrate a Quiz in your Presentation
Quizzes at presentations are great, but how do you incorporate them best? You can of course just put the question on the slide and then let your audience raise their hands at the answer they like best. But that has many flaws, like no anonymity, people influencing each others votes, and no possibility to record the results. We recommend using a PowerPoint Plugin like SlideLizard , which makes poll creation and conduction as easy as it can be. You type in your questions (or choose one of the templates) and some possible answers, your attendees connect with a link on their smartphone and vote for their preferred answer. You can show the results to your audience immediately afterwards. Simply download the tool for free , install it and open up PowerPoint. In this video, you'll learn how to create your quiz polls.

Table of Contents
Create the front page of the quiz
Open a new slide and type in the title of your online quiz. You can also add some additional information if you want to add about it. Choose the color, size, and font of the text as per your choice.
Then add the background image according to the topic of your quiz. For adding a background image, click on the ‘Insert tab’ and then click on ‘Pictures’. There is also a shortcut to this. Press the right mouse button, and then click on the ‘format background’ button.
On the right side of your screen, the ‘format background’ setting will open. From there you can select:
- Solid fill
- Gradient fill
- Pattern fill
Create the question and answer slide
To make a quiz in PowerPoint, go to the next slide and put a question in the title box. You can also use unfinished statements, phrases, or mathematical equations instead of questions. Include an image that will effectively show your ideas and aid visual communication.
Include a response option in your question. Click the ‘text box’ button on the ‘Insert’ tab. Start with the top selection and work your way down the list.
In most multiple-choice questions, there is one correct option (also known as the key) and three incorrect options (also called distractors).

Create the correct answer slide
After making a quiz in PowerPoint, add a second slide stating that the learner has picked the correct answer. Enter a congratulatory message in the title box: Correct!/ That’s right!/Well done! etc.
Add a sentence to the ‘content box’ that encourages students to continue the quiz, such as “Go to the next question!” or “Continue the Quiz!” Let’s get this quiz party started!
Add this slide after every quiz. This will motivate your learners to go and complete the quiz.
Create the wrong answer slide
Use the same steps to make the incorrect response slip, which will appear when test-takers make a mistake. Add a new slide and put the appropriate text in the title box, such as “Oops, that’s wrong…”
But this time, allow your students to return to the question and attempt it again. To make your learners more informed, give feedback on every correct and incorrect answer. So, that they know what they did wrong and where they were right.
Level of teaching – Memory, Understanding & Reflective Level
Add navigation to your quiz
Once you make a quiz on Powerpoint, add navigation to it. Connect the correct and incorrect responses to the appropriate feedback slides.
To do so, first, click the answer text box, then go to the Insert tab and click on ‘Link’ from the ‘Insert’ menu. A dialog box will pop up. Choose ‘Place in This Document’ from the open window, then select the necessary “That’s correct” or “That’s wrong” slide.

How to Create a Classroom Quiz Competition in PowerPoint
Looking for a fun and engaging way to get your students to reproduce the material they are learning? Turn your formative assessment quiz into a classroom quiz competition!
By using ClassPoint, which is integrated into Microsoft PowerPoint, you can create an interactive classroom quiz right inside your presentation. And while there are a multitude of ClassPoint functions and questions that can transform presentations into interactive lessons, ClassPoint’s Competition Mode is the only one that will rank and score your students. With these scoring and ranking abilities, students will be more motivated than ever during class.

Create a Classroom Quiz in PowerPoint
Creating your classroom quiz in PowerPoint only takes a few steps, thank goodness! There is no need to worry about learning a whole new tool. You can stay in PowerPoint and create an interactive classroom quiz with ClassPoint.
Step 1: Create Your Quiz
The first step in creating this interactive quiz is to make your content of course. Add your questions and answer options as text onto your PowerPoint slides. Remember, one question per slide!
Step 2: Add Interactivity
Now, to make your classroom quiz interactive, head on over to the ClassPoint tab on your PowerPoint ribbon. From there, click on the Multiple Choice activity icon. This will add a button to your slide, and the Side Question Panel will open. Now that the button is on the slide, when you present you can begin receiving responses from your students.
Step 3: Customize Your Question & Set As Competition Mode
Before receiving responses from students, ensure you are providing them with the correct options. This can be done in the Side Question Panel. Start by setting the correct number of choices for them to choose from. From there select the correct answer , or answers if there are multiple, to your question.
Step 4: Set As Competition Mode
Now, what you have done so far, is just a plain Multiple Choice question. To really upgrade this presentation and this quiz let’s make it a competition! This will add the scoring and ranking element to your questions.
To do this, just check the box next to Competition Mode on the side question panel. Now, you will a trophy icon on the Multiple Choice button on your slide indicating that this question is a competition mode question.
Step 5: Set Play Options
Further down on the Side Question Panel, you will see the Play Options. These options determine the behavior of the interactive button during the presentation. For a classroom quiz competition, to add a little pressure for the students, we recommend turning on all these Play Options.
This way the question will automatically open when you get to that slide, the results window will be automatically minimized so that students are not influenced by each other’s submissions, and the question will automatically close after a certain time period.
For more information on these play options, you can read a short explainer , or watch the video above to see them in action!
Step 6: Repeat for All Slides
Repeat steps 2-5 for all the questions in your classroom quiz. When your whole quiz is set, it is time to run it and begin receiving responses from students!
Run your Classroom Quiz Competition
Running your classroom quiz could not be easier, especially if you set the Play Options mentioned above.
First , while still on the title slide, you need your students to join your class! Once joined they can participate by answering your questions. To have students join, you can open the My Class Dialog by clicking on the class code in the top right-hand corner.
From here, students can either scan the QR code or go to classpoint.app and type in the class code and their name. That is the easiest, but there are also other ways to get your student to join even faster .
Second , let’s begin the quiz! Now that your students are joined, when a question is opened, they can submit their answers from their device. Remember the faster they submit the correct answer, the higher they will be on the leaderboard!
Once all the submissions are in, or if you set a timer after the timer runs out this will be done automatically, close the submissions, and let’s view the results!
Now that one question is complete, you can view the results. This is where the fun comes in.
Begin by showing your students the correct answer. You will probably hear lots of yays or nays depending on how your students did! Once they know what the correct answer is they might have a good idea of where they will be placed on the leaderboard.
To view this infamous leaderboard, just click the Leaderboard button at the bottom of the Response Window. Your students are now scored, ranked, and listed here.
In addition, you can also view a table version of these results. This is most beneficial after all the questions have been completed so that you can easily see the performance of each student. Plus, good news! You can export these results as a CSV to immediately add to a grade book, or continue a month-long leaderboard like our CCT, Filipe from Portugal does with his students.
