How to Create Private Quizzes


ProProfs Quiz Maker gives you complete control over the accessibility of your quizzes. It provides three levels of quiz privacy. 


1. Limiting access to those with the quiz link
2. Securing the quiz with a password
3. Assigning the quiz to a select group of users 

You can share the quiz using a link. It is the default setting. Only learners who receive the invite via the link can take your quiz. 

Alternatively, you can set the level of privacy according to your preference.


Here’s a look at the cover page of a password-protected private quiz:

Private quizzes are prevented from appearing publicly on the web as they do not list on Google and other search engines. Furthermore, private quizzes help in minimizing cheating by stopping unauthorized access.


By default, each quiz you create with ProProfs is private. However, you can set the level of privacy according to your preference.


Creating a private quiz is ideal for the following:


1. Exams

2. Recruitment tests

3. Internal staff training

4. Quizzes on sale

 How to Provide Quiz Access Via Individual Logins


ProProfs Quiz Maker allows you to create secure and private quizzes by setting up login ids and passwords for your learners via the classroom. This way, only selected users can access the quizzes.

Step 1: In your Quiz Maker account,


  • Navigate to "Settings" > "Security."
  • Select "Private access for selected users & groups."
  • Click "Manage Users" to set up the usernames and passwords for users & groups.


Open Secutiry Settings and enable Quiz Security to Private Access for selected Users & Groups


You will be redirected to your classroom, where you can add new learners and create usernames and passwords for them or change the usernames and passwords for the existing users.


Step 2: To change a user's username or password, click on their first or last name.


Select a User to manage their details


Step 3: You can add/edit the ID or username, password, and other details.

Now, when the user logs into the classroom using the credentials, they can find the quizzes assigned to them.
