You'll find the Leaderboard option in the Extra Options tab in the Quiz options section. You can choose to show the leaderboard at the beginning or end of the questionnaire.

Choose how many seconds you want to give for each question, whether to display the timer and which question to skip to when the timer has finished.

See more details in this guide.

3 Show quiz score as a percentage

The score a respondent obtains is by default shown as a fraction, e.g.: 3/5. Show quiz score as a percentage so that the score will be shown as a percentage, e.g.: 60%. Find this in Quiz options in the Extra options tab.

Tip: If you want to show your quiz scores in a gauge and use the Outcomes feature, we recommend choosing the basic outcomes screen. Read the full Outcomes guide here.

If you don't want to display the View correct answers, you can change it from Labels and messages.

Respondents can then go back over the quiz and they'll see which answers were correct and incorrect, and the question explanation you've entered will show under the answer options.

6 View question results

After a respondent has answered a question, they can see a percentage of the number of times each response was selected. To use this feature, make sure you create an API key in the 'Account' menu.

7 Question pool

This feature is available in all paying plans.

Use a question pool to group your questions together and specify how many questions from the pool should be shown to each respondent. The questions will be randomly selected. If you have a quiz of 10 questions, a selection of 5 questions could be shown to each respondent and you should get a better response rate with a shorter quiz. 

To group your questions into a question pool, click the Question grouping & Question pool option. You'll find it in the Question logic section in the Extra Options tab.

You could put all your questions into one question pool or have some questions fixed and others in the question pool. There are a few steps to follow, so it's worth reading the full guide here!

8 Randomize questions

Randomize questions means that all of your questions will be shuffled in a random order every time someone opens the questionnaire. This can be useful for a quiz when you don't want respondents to look at each others' answers, as everyone will behave their questions in a different order.

You can choose to have some questions in a random order, and some questions, such as demographic data questions, fixed to show at the beginning of the survey.

Learn how to randomize your set of questions here.

9 Outcomes screen at end of quiz

This feature is available for Professional and Enterprise plans only.

End your quiz on a high note by showing respondents a final screen based on their answers or score.

For example, you could make three different screens for Expert, Intermediate, and Beginner. All correct answer options will be linked with the Expert screen and other answers you can link with the other screens. Whichever answer was chosen most frequently will determine which screen the respondent will see as the final screen.

Here's how your final outcome screen could look:
