Book Quizzes

  • Book quizzes help students to enhance understanding of reading material. Book quizzes can be purchased one-by-one for $1 or in our custom-curated bundles for valuable discounts.
  • A book quiz purchase includes one quiz for each chapter of the book, as well as custom email reports following the completion of each quiz.
  • Students who have purchased book quizzes will be given unlimited access to take and retake quizzes at their leisure.
  • Each book quiz will include 5 questions from a random pool of available questions. While a quiz designer might choose to include ten, twenty or even more questions in each individual chapter quiz, the student will be presented with five questions per attempt. This ensures a higher level of value for students who wish to come back to any given chapter quiz for the sake of review.

Quiz Question Types

  • Single Answer: Students can select a single answer
  • Multiple answer: Students can select more than one of the possible answers
  • Sorting: Students must arrange the answers in the correct order. Good for testing order of events in a chapter.
  • Free Answer: Students write their answer into a blank. There may be more than one correct answer accepted.
  • Cloze Answer: A typical fill in-the-blank question.
  • Matrix Sort: Students must match items together.

Both questions and answers can be filled out with either text, or any type of image, video, or audio file.
