The Mentimeter Quiz Competition is made for the participants to compete with one another in real time. Once the presenter has started the Quiz, you will be able to join!

How to join a Quiz competition

  1. Join the presentation as usual via

  2. An avatar will be assigned randomly to you

  3. Choose your own nickname or use the suggested name

  4. Answer the question (before the time runs out!)

  5. See if the answer was right or wrong

  6. Check your score

Step 4 depends on which type of question you’ve created: for Select Answer questions the participants choose from predefined options, while in Type Answer questions the participants enter free-text answers.

If the presentation has several quiz questions, the results from all questions will be accumulated to determine the final winner.

Why wasn't I assigned an avatar and asked to enter my name?

There can be two reasons for this. The first is that the presentation does not contain Quiz slides. The avatar, nickname and leaderboard features only work if you are using Quiz slides (not Question slides). If you want to use these features, the presenter needs to select the right slide types. Learn more about the difference between Quiz slides and Question slides.

The other reason is that you have already connected to this quiz before. Mentimeter remembers devices, so if you connect to a quiz again, you will automatically be assigned the same avatar and nickname as before.

If you want to be able to enter a new nickname, you can clear the browser cache your voting device, then connect to the quiz again.
