How to Capture Quiz Taker's Information

ProProfs Quiz Maker allows you to capture any information about the quiz-takers/learners. You can do this by asking questions such as name, email ID or your own custom questions, which a user must answer to start the quiz. These questions allow you to track who the learner is but do not count towards the score in the quiz. 


If you have an existing list of users, you can upload their details and create user accounts for them. To learn more, please watch our video tutorial on users and groups, or you can read the article: How do I assign individual username/password to quiz takers?.
