1. Enter the question.

2. Enter choices matches, and add more if required. You can also add incorrect answer options, or so-called distractors, to confuse quiz takers and test their knowledge levels. That means your matching quiz with four questions can have more than four options to choose from.

3. Advanced:

  • Add feedback which is shown after the question is attempted.
  • Add tags to categorize questions.
  • Make the question mandatory for the users to attempt.
  • Enable grading if you'd like this particular question to impact the overall quiz score.

4. Add an image if you want. Once you're done, save. Your question is ready.

5. You can permanently remove a question using the Delete option.
