  • Name - This field is used to identify the quiz both in the Back-End and in the Front-End.
  • Slug - If this field is left blank, the plugin will generate a readable slug automatically. Can be used inside shortcodes to display quizzes.
  • Parent Quizzes - You can make this quiz a "child" of another quiz. Useful for organization, as you can display all the questions related to a quiz (learn more).

  • Description - This field may display on the Front-End, depending on your theme.
  • Correct answers percent to pass the quiz - The numbers represent the percentage of questions that must be correct to be considered a success. For instance, if the quiz has 10 questions and this value is 60, that means the viewer has to score at least 6 to pass. (because 60% percent of 10 is 6).
  • Max number of attempts to pass the quiz - After the user tries to solve the quiz this many times, he/she will not be able to see the quiz anymore.

    Leaving a "0" means users can try the quiz infinite times.

  • Questions number in the quiz - Choose how many questions the quiz will display. If the quiz holds more questions that this value, they will be showed randomly. Leaving a "0" means all questions assigned to this quiz will be available.
  • Quiz timer - Select the time allotted for completing the quiz. Time format: HH:MM. To disable the timer, set 00:00. Note: this option was introduced in version 1.1.5.

    How It Looks Like On the Front-End

    The user is able to see how much time is left on the Front-end:
