Questions Tab – Overview

Questions Tab is used to create and modify the different pages of your quiz or survey as well as the questions on each page. By default when you click on Create New Quiz/Survey button in the dashboard you are presented with a Questions page where you can add questions and list down their answers and other details.

With QSM you can have as many pages in your quiz or survey as you need. If you want all questions to be on the same page, then you can create just one page and add all the questions in a Single Page.

Answer Type

In the Answer Type drop-down, you are presented with two text format options for formatting answers and one option for adding image answers.

The first is Text Answers i.e allowing only plain text that contains no formatting, only line breaks, and spacing. Therefore no text formatting (such as font sizes and colors, bolding, or italics) can be used.

Second is the Rich Answers where you can use the styled text that allows for the addition of formattings, such as font sizes and colors, bolding, italics, etc…

The third is the Image Answers where you can add answers in the form of images from WordPress Media. You can add any number of images as answers and set individual text captions for Easy Identification.

After you’ve made the changes don’t forget to hit the Save Question button to save the changes.


In Quiz and Survey Master Plugin, you can categorize each question you’ve made. For example, you are making a quiz containing questions about General Knowledge, so you can create a Category named General Knowledge and the Question will be added to that category.

Likewise, you can add multiple questions to the same category or a single question to multiple categories. So, whenever you want to import/reuse a question in another quiz it will be easier for you to find questions with that category and you can use them whenever needed.
