No matter if it's a part of a presentation, as a short break, or to improve learning, sometimes you want to inject a bit of energy into your session. The Mentimeter Quiz competition lets participants compete against each other to bring out a competitive spirit and create a fun experience!

You can have several quiz questions and define correct answers to aggregate the total score and reveal a final winner at the end! 🎉

Have a look at this short video to understand how the Quiz Competition works, or read more below:

How to create a Quiz competition

1. Select the Quiz question of your choice

There are two different types of Quiz questions:

Select Answer Quiz

Here, you give the participants predefined options to choose from – just like in a Multiple Choice Question.

Type Answer Quiz

In this Quiz, participants need to type the answer themselves instead of choosing from a list.

2. Select the correct answer

After you have typed in your question and answer options, you will need to select a correct answer. If you have selected the Select Answer question type, click the box next to an option to mark it as correct.

For the type answer question type, you can add both a correct answer under “Correct answer to display” as well as optional correct answers if there is other acceptable answers.

3. Select scoring setting

Under the "Extras" section in your "Content" tab, you can check or uncheck the box "Faster correct answers get more points" to decide the scoring setting you prefer for your Quiz:

  • Faster answers get more points; Participants try to answer as fast as they can and are rewarded between 1000 and 500 points for a correct answer, depending on when they submit their response 🐇

  • All correct answers get 1000 points; This will give all correct answers 1000 points; for situations where you want to promote accuracy rather than speed! 🐢

For both of the above settings, wrong or no answer gives zero points.

4. Select time to answer

Change the time to answer if you want – either to give the audience some more time to think, or to add an extra stress element to make sure they stay on their toes...

5. Choose how you want the quiz timer to start

When moving to the next quiz question, the countdown on the quiz timer can either start automatically (as soon as you switch slides) or manually (on your command by pressing Enter). You can change these settings in the “Settings” menu under the heading “Interactions”.

6. Add music to your Quiz

If you want some happy tunes during your Quiz, you can select among the different music tracks available to add sound to the slides.

7. Add a leaderboard

Lastly, add a leaderboard to show the scoring. It can be added anywhere in the Quiz – between questions to further encourage the competitiveness and in the end to reveal the overall winner!

The Leaderboards show the top 10 participants, if you want to know the results for all participants you can export the results to Excel if you have any of our paid plans.

That's it, now you are ready to present the Quiz!
