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 and Survey Master – Quiz Plugin for WordPress
Quiz and Survey Master plugin covers every feature offered by other quiz plugins on this list along with the best customization tool for quiz text. It is extremely easy to setup, and even a rookie won’t find any issues. You’re allowed to customize the font style and certain design elements to give a unique look.

There are several quiz plugins for WordPress but OpinionStage is one that stands out on functionality, scalability and ease of use. The plugin has been developed keeping in minds of modern businesses and marketers. It allows them to easily create Personality and Trivia quizzes to be deployed on a WordPress powered website. If you try this plugin once you would notice the distinctive advantages it has over other plugins. From design to result measurement and analytics it takes care of all needs.
While the basic architecture and functionality of most quiz plugins are similar OpinionStage stands out thanks to its ease of use. The plugin comes with an all-encompassing dashboard that offers users complete creative and technical control over the quiz that is being created. There are ready-to-use templates within the dashboard that can be customized and branded to meet niche needs of any business.

The cutting-edge CMS integration feature allows you to embed the quiz in their WordPress website without any hassle.
To create and manage quiz on your WordPress website there is no other plugin as user-friendly and versatile as OpinionStage.
Quiz Cat – WordPress Quiz Builder
The third 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.
Watu is the first plugin here which supports touch devices. You can arrange not just simple questions but also run a whole examination online. You can keep a record of each and every reader’s performance in those exams and can even display them online. Other than all basic features it also supports shortcodes allowing you to add any additional functionality easily.
Recommended PAID WordPress Quiz Plugins
Free WordPress quiz plugins are great, sure. But if you are looking to really level your game up, then check out some of our favorite paid plugins. There are a few reasons you should pay for the upgrade rather than go for a free plugin.
WordPress Viral Quiz – BuzzFeed Quiz Builder
This plugin takes viral content to an entirely different level than you have likely ever seen. Unless you are living under a rock, you have probably heard of BuzzFeed, or seen some type of their quizzes go viral on Facebook. The short of it: this plugin allows you to create interesting and unique content that users will likely want to share with their friends. And share they will. This plugin is packed with features that not only make creating beautiful-looking quizzes incredibly easy, but also comes standard with features that encourage users to share their results, which eventually leads to more shares, impressions, and visitors to your site. This is one of the best viral content generators we have seen at this price.
WordPress Form Builder – Survey & Quiz – FSQM Pro
This drag and drop WordPress plugin is surprisingly powerful for its price point. Drag and drop design builders allow you to create a great-looking quiz or survey in seconds. Choose from over 100 fonts, more than 35 form elements, 860+ HD icons, and 30+ themes. You won’t find that type of design in a free plugin. Other notable features include powerful analytics, registered user management, and custom redirection. This plugin comes packed with robust features and everything you can possibly think of, right out of the box. Whether you are looking to make a quiz to go viral, or simply gather feedback from your readers, this plugin is worth every penny.
Here comes our next 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.
WordPress Simple Survey
This is our responsive solution if it was the first requirement, so you can think of it working on almost any possible mobile screen size out there in the market. It doesn’t load the quizzes or any other related section (you’ve implemented on the website) separately; rather everything is loaded quickly and once. It does affect the user experience.
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.
Another package that can help you covers quizzes right on your website. You can start with a single one or even start a whole bunch of exam for readers to participate. Different icons are supported while overall design and feel are pretty simple. As a webmaster, you can either offer readers multiple choice options or single ones.
Questions can be ordered according to a pattern or in a random fashion. You can even limit the number of times a reader is allowed to answer a question. It had been downloaded thousands of times and mostly rated five stars.
It covers all basic features along with bringing social sharing options, saving user scores and no limit whatsoever. Its control panel at the back is really easy to handle and cool in design. You can even restrict readers to submit questions without inputting any answer and many other similar functionalities. In short, it can offer great user experience and will also minimize work you’ve to do in running and managing question-answer seminars over your WordPress driven blog or website.
This is the only plugin that is ready with localization so you can expect it to get automatically translated as per language of user’s location. Other than this unique feature, all question-answer related features are being couched within and using them is really easy. Multimedia files are also allowed to be inserted.
This plugin comes standard with tons of features that many of the free alternatives cannot lay claim to. Social sharing, export to CSV, submit score via email to owner, and interface customization are some of the features that typically compel users to pay for. As you can see, this is no free plugin, but a tool that blog owners can leverage to truly step their quiz game up.
Over to You
So, the final call is yours, and I hope the collection I got here was helpful and also saved some time. I’d like to ask you for a little favor in return (only if you’ve some more free time). I’ve covered a lot of useful guides and tutorials over our blog. Just check out our blog page and I bet you’ll find a lot of interesting and helpful things. Sayonara.

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?”
Brian HPosted at 14:53h, 04 June
I will speak to Pawan with regards to your question and report back here, as he reviewed these plugins.
Olav TörnblomPosted at 12:52h, 08 June

Anil SainiPosted at 07:43h, 21 June
which one is fully responsive plugin?
Brian HPosted at 11:55h, 25 September
Great question, as long as your website is responsive then the quiz on the page should adapt to the screen size.
Jack MonroePosted at 22:04h, 02 September
Really great list, however some of them are outdated and doesn’t compatible with the latest WordPress versions.
I’m using WordPress Survey & Poll that is perfectly fits to my needs with the survey builder option: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-survey-and-poll

emaxgamesPosted at 07:03h, 14 October
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 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).

Nice list, and very helpful for everyone looking for good quiz plugins for WordPress. Did you consider our free WordPress plugin for quizzes when creating this list?

If you have tried H5P or get the chance to give it a try please share any feedback you may have.
Academia QIPosted at 02:32h, 30 March
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!
Academia QIPosted at 02:32h, 30 March
Sorry, the link is: http://www.academiaqi.club Will look forward to the quiz samples I have

We love that one too. All around great plugin!
RumanaPosted at 04:30h, 11 June
I love all of these
Paul McCannPosted at 18:18h, 27 June
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!
Editorial StaffPosted at 18:05h, 29 June
Thanks for the feedback on the list. I’ll do some searching around to see if I can find anything like that. If I can, I’ll update the list with my findings
JeremyPosted at 14:09h, 21 July

EileenPosted at 20:26h, 17 July
Hello, I am looking for a WP plugin for a Personality Quiz: 81 questions, 10 point slider option, calculates the score and sends a report to the Quiz taker. Any suggestions? Thanks
Joel MilnePosted at 03:33h, 20 August
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.
