How to create online test?

Do you want to create an online test or quiz? It is super easy. You create a test just the same way as a survey. The difference is that for a test you need to additionally add points for answer choices and a metric to sum up test results.

As you build your test please remember to :

  • Add points to each answer choice.
  • Create a metric that will sum up all or selected answer choices for your test.

Points will be visible in the summary report and individual reports (separate reports for each respondent).

Question types that can be used for automatic score calculation :

  • Choice.
  • Matrix.
  • NPS.
  • Numeric or slider.

In order to create an online test :


  1. Press + ADD SURVEY button to create a new test or edit an existing one. To do it select a test and then press [E] Design button.
  2. Turn on Points mode.
  3. Add points for each answer choice (e.g. -1, 0, 1, 2).points mode
