[ratings]

**Updated 6/22/2016: We added a few more plugins that we think you will really like. You have to pay for the ones we added, but once you check them out, we think you will think the paid features will be well worth the cost ;)**

 

Back in the days I started blogging; there weren’t many options when it came to quiz plugins, but nowadays we got a lot of better ones. I’m going to share best free WordPress quiz plugins over here with their individual details and links from where you can grab their zipped packages. Just go through this collection guide and you’ll definitely improve your idea to implement quizzes on your website and have a plugin to handle all functional requirements of the same.

Quizzes are the best way to engage a reader and it delivers a lot of good results. It can even help a reader to stay on your blog for some more time that is itself being counted among Analytics data reflecting how better your website is.

On the other hand, it helps readers to grab some extra information with a fun layout and also offers a challenge to them. Don’t take any hope that it will work in case of every ready but I’m certain that it will bring some good effects.

Recommended FREE WordPress Quiz Plugins

Let us begin with the list now and I’d recommend you to create a checklist of requirements you wish to have from a plugin related to quizzes. Once you have that, then all you need to do is to match it up with below-mentioned options. As the title suggest, all options I’m about to list here are available for free, and you can grab them from official WordPress plugin directory.

Quiz Cat – WordPress Quiz Builder

Quiz Cat - WordPress Quiz Builder — WordPress PluginsThe first plugin on our list of the best quiz plugins for WordPress comes from Fatcatapps, a development company that churns out some pretty cool products. One of these includes Quiz Cat, a powerful WordPress plugin that allows bloggers to easily create BuzzFeed-style quizzes.  Take one look a this plugin and right away you’ll see it stands out from most.

While most quiz plugins have similar features and share triggers, Quiz Cat differentiates itself on style and design.  This plugin comes with well-designed quiz landing pages, allowing users to tweak the headlines and subheadlines, images, and “Start Quiz” buttons. This is vital, because if the quiz isn’t well-designed from the start, what will compel users to take it? The actual quiz itself is also nice, lending a hand to minimal yet beautiful design. It really is a sleek plugin that you’ll just have to try for yourself.

Wp-Pro-Quiz

Wp Pro Quiz WordPress Plugin

Here comes our second solution that had been number one choice of thousands of users (not many because very few webmasters are using such things in their webpages). It offers lots of quizzes related features like single choice, multiple choice, sorting, free choice, Cloze function, matrix sorting function, time limit, random answer and proper assessment. All these features are bundled among the simple to use package that is really cool.

If you wish to offer and receive email notifications, then it is possible, and the plugin also keeps the record of every statistic. You can even offer hints to users and put questions in different categories. So it really got a long list of features. Try it out.

And in this day and age, we know user experience is everything. The look of this plugin alone allowed a popular niche website to get insanely powerful backlinks from some of the biggest news blogs in the world, and boost one of their informational page‘s SERP rankings from #5 to #2.

You can quickly start with surveys, polls and off course quizzes. Users can easily enter the answer and can track results. On the Dashboard area, you can track results and every other statistic available within. Another best feature is that results and related data can be exported and emailed in CSV file format.

    Thanks for the post! Two questions:

    1. Do any of the quizzes you mention include a lead-capture section? i.e. take a quiz, enter your contact information for results

    2. Do any of the quizzes act like buzzfeed style “what walking dead character are you most similar to?”

      Great question, as long as your website is responsive then the quiz on the page should adapt to the screen size.

    Awesome post!
    I need your kind help in this problem: SS quiz is not working – generating neither quiz nor questions.
    MOST IMPORTANT: all the quizzes are added on server side (by ADMIN), can they be added from client side (by other users-teachers)???

      Thanks for noticing and including QuizMaster (https://wordpress.org/plugins/quizmaster/) which is also actively supported and updated, whereas WP Pro Quiz (which QuizMaster is based on) is not at the moment (or in the past nearly 2-years).

    Hi, thank you for this awesome list! I’ve already checked 2 free, but the viral one seems promising. If you could, what plugin would best fit in the http://www.academia.club ( in English: http://www.iqacademy.club )? I’d need a plugin that can count a range of points (say, 1 to 6) for each question, then processed at the answer. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I can’t find a plugin that allows the site-owner to create a quiz, drop a shortcode for that quiz on a content page, saves the results AND doesn’t embed the answers somehow on the quiz page. Quiz and Survey Master is great, as is some of these others, but the ones that don’t need massive customization all put the answers in JSON in the source! To easy for cheaters!

    Newly released in early 2017 is QuizMaster, a rebuild of WP Pro Quiz. Unlike WP Pro Quiz which hasn’t been updated in well over a year and has no active support, QuizMaster is being actively developed and is more developer-friendly with fully customizable templates and range of hooks (actions and filters). It’s an extension-based system similar to WooCommerce, with about 5 free extensions already available for feature support such as Grading. Download at https://wordpress.org/plugins/quizmaster/
