How to Bulk-Import Questions From Excel


With ProProfs Quiz Maker, you can prepare questions anytime, anywhere, without the need to remain online. Create questions on an Excel sheet and bulk-upload it using the ProProfs Import feature.

This feature supports “Offline Authoring” so that even those without a ProProfs account/Internet can create questions for you. ProProfs also supports importing questions from an existing ProProfs quiz.


In the Excel sheet, apart from adding questions and answers along with question types, you can also:


  • Assign marks or points for each question

  • Assign topics or categories to questions


Below is an overview of a sample Excel file with proper formatting to let you import questions for your quiz in bulk:
