QSM Drop Down

Drop Down is one of the most used Question Type in QSM Quizzes and Surveys.

It consists of a drop-down list that drops open and lets the user select any one relevant answer to the said question.

Drop Down question type is easy to configure and can be used a variety of surveys. Below is just one example of how this can be done.


To try this Question Type, head on to the Quizzes/Surveys section on the sidebar. Once in, create a new quiz/survey by clicking on the “Add New” button.

Type any name for the quiz as you wish, I’m going to name it as “Drop Down” and press “Create.” This creates a new post with your given name. Hover the cursor on the newly created post and press “Edit”.

This opens up a window with multiple Tabs. With the first being, Questions Tab. Click “Create New Page” and then “Create New Question”.

Choose the Question Type as “Drop Down” from the drop-down list. Type your question in the below textbox.


After writing the question make sure you provide relevant answers and tick the correct answer checkbox. You also can allot some points to make the Quiz more interesting.

Try the advanced features like “Correct Answer Info” where the user gets to see the detailed explanation of the correct answer after they finish the quiz.


You can also provide a hint to the user regarding the possible answer via. the “Hint” textbox.  Force the user to provide the answer without which they cannot proceed with the quiz by selecting “Yes” from the “Required?” dropdown.

Categorize the question according to the class of question being asked. You can limit the user response to the question by changing the default value to your preferred value. After making the essential changes hit the save button.


If you have entered the correct answer info then you need to make a little change in the configuration, head to the “Text” tab and add the %CORRECT_ANSWER_INFO%  code into the %QUESTIONS_ANSWERS% text box as seen above and hit the Save Changes button.


Feel free to check out various customizations options by visiting all the tabs. Do visit the QSM documentation for more information on the plugin.
