When you do this, a popup window displaying all of the plugin’s pre-made templates, including those for building booking forms and mortgage calculators, appears.

Since we’re beginning from scratch in this manual, select “Blank Form.”

After doing that, put a title and an optional description in the “Form Name” area. You can use anything you like with this information since it is only provided for your reference.

Then, just press the “Create” button.

This will launch the Formidable Forms editor and display the template.

A live preview is on the right, and a menu with all the fields you may drag and drop into your quiz is on the left.

Quizzes can be made for a variety of objectives, such as gathering consumer feedback, conducting market research for your WordPress blog, evaluating reader knowledge, and more.

Depending on the type of quiz you’re making, you might need a variety of fields. We’ll provide you an example of how to make a straightforward quiz that checks the visitor’s knowledge. Different types of questions, such as multiple choice ones, will be developed.

Simply drag a field from the left-hand menu and drop it onto the live preview to add it to your quiz. Start by including a “Text” field.

Start by including a Text field

Then click in the live editor to choose your new “Text” field.

Then you can proceed and type your inquiry into the “Field Label.”

The next step is to construct a multiple-choice question.

Add a “Dropdown” field to the form by dragging it there.

Repeatedly click the “Dropdown” field in the preview to the right and then enter your query in the “Field Label” box.

Now enter the potential responses into the “Dropdown Options” field.

Dropdown Options

Simply click the “Add Option” button to add more options to your multiple-choice question. These procedures can be repeated if you want to add more quiz questions.

The correct answers and how to display the user’s score should be configured once you are satisfied with how the quiz looks.

Choose “Actions & Notifications” from the “Settings” page to accomplish this. You can now choose “Scored quiz.”

You can now choose Scored quiz

You can notice that this action already has some default options if you scroll to the new “Scored Quiz” section. It will be more challenging for people to cheat if the questions and answers are randomly generated by Formidable Forms.

These features are deactivated by default, but you may enable them by clicking on the ‘Randomize questions’ and ‘Randomize options’ toggles. Formidable Forms gives one point for each accurate response. 

If advanced scoring is enabled, you can deduct points for incorrect responses. If you want to subtract points from your score, you can click to turn on the “Allow negative scoring” button. Advanced scoring will be covered shortly.

Allow negative scoring

Now that the correct responses have been set, Formidable Forms may automatically grade visitors.

Choose “Customize Quiz Scoring” from the menu to accomplish this.

Simply click the toggle next to each question to add the correct answer.

Just enter the right response in the space for text questions. The dropdown menu also allows you to decide whether this text should be included in full, partially, or not at all in the user’s response.

By selecting “Add Correct Answers” for multiple choice questions, a menu will all avail able answers will be displayed.

Now you can check the box next to each accurate response.

Each right response is worth one point by default. Simply enter a different number in the “Max score” box to grant more points.

In some cases, you might wish to give each response to a multiple choice question a distinct score.

To accomplish this, choose “Advanced scoring,” and then enter the scores for each response.

Once you’ve entered all the accurate information, click “Done” to save your changes.

After that, you can specify the action that Formidable Forms will carry out each time a quiz submission is made. To view the available options, only click the following dropdown: What are your preferred next steps?

click the following dropdown

If you select “Show the score,” Formidable Forms will show the visitor’s score in a normal message.

An illustration of this can be found in the picture below.

select Show the score

Formidable Forms will display the user’s score in addition to their responses if you choose to “Show user’s answers.”

By prompting users to analyze their responses and consider which questions they could have answered incorrectly, this can help reinforce learning.


The option to “Show correct responses” allows users to view the questions they answered correctly.

If somebody answered a question incorrectly, Formidable Forms will display the correct response. Students can use this to learn from their errors.

However, giving learner the chance to retake the test is a bad idea since it could encourage cheating.

Score 2

As a final option , you can choose “use default success settings”, which displays the following message : your response were successfully submitted.

Normally, you should modify this message to include the user’s rating. 

To accomplish this, select “General” and edit the message under the “On Submit” section.

select General and edit the message under the On Submit section

Simply add the [219] key to display the user’s score. 

You can personalize messages for each user by using a “key,” which is a dynamic value.

For instance, you could type “your response was successfully sent”.

You received a [219]. 

Their score will be immediately substituted for the [219].

score will be immediately substituted

You can add more keys to your message to make it more unique.

Simply select the “Keys” tab in the tiny popup to view the various keys.

To save your changes, use the “Update” button after that. 

Your first quiz has now been successfully generated.

Step:3 Making Your Test Available on Your WordPress Site

Now that your quiz is ready, you can add it to any post, page, or part of your WordPress theme that supports widgets. Although we’ll add the quiz to a page in our example, the procedures are the same for adding the quiz to other places on your WordPress site.

Go to Pages » Add New in your WordPress admin area to get started. Click the “+” button to add a new block once you’re in the content editor.

Add the block to your post after searching for “Formidable Forms” in the popup that appears.

After that, just select a form from the dropdown menu.

And then, select any quiz you’ve already developed, and WordPress will do the rest for you.

Now you can add any more content to the page, such as custom permalinks, categories, tags, and other information.

Publish or update the page when you’re ready. Users can now begin answering questions on your WordPress quiz.
