Today’s WordPress Wednesday topic is on the Top Four Quiz plugins for WordPress users. Have you ever been on the hunt for creating and managing a quiz or test for students or clients in your business? Instead of having to search for these kinds of plugins for a WordPress (self-hosted) site, I have provided a comprehensive list of the plugins below for you.
1. WatuPro Plugin
The WatuPro plugin will allow you to create multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank questions. Because you can use the default WordPress editor for this plugin, you can be creative as you like, even adding images and videos to your questions. It has a free lite version or you can get the “pro” or commercial version for $47.00.
- You can create questions that have one or more multiple choice answers.
- You can create different point levels for different questions in your test.
- You can also award certificates for a successful completion of the test or quiz.
Here are a couple of screenshots of the plugin in action.

2. mTouch Quiz Plugin
The mTouch Quiz plugin was developed to be run on mobile devices so the big difference with their format is the big buttons that you can tap onto, making it easy to slide from one question to the next. It’s a free plugin, but for upgrades, there is a fee involved.
Here is an additional list of features provided by the developer of the plugin:
- specify hints based on answer selection
- give a detailed explanation of the solution
- choose multiple correct answers
- specify when the correct answers are displayed
- specify if a question may be attempted only once or many times
- specify point values for each question
- include customized start and finish screens
You can also be creative with the setup of the questions as it too uses the WordPress default editor for creating your questions.

3. WP Survey & Quiz Tool
The WP Survey & Quiz Tool plugin not only provides quizzes and surveys, but it also allows you to set up polls too. It’s a free plugin.
Here’s a good size list of their features to consider:
- Unlimited number of quizzes.
- Unlimited number of sections for quizzes.
- Auto marking for quizzes with all multiple choice questions.
- Ability to limit quizzes to one submission per IP address.
- Ability to send customized notification emails.
- Ability to send notification emails to a single email address, multiple email addresses or a group of WordPress users.
- Ability to have notification emails only be sent if the user got a certain score.
- Ability to have quizzes taken by registered WordPress members only.
- Ability to have quizzes and surveys with or without contact forms.
- Ability to have custom contact forms.
- Ability to export and import quizzes.
- Ability to have PDF certifications.
Here’s a screenshot of how the WP Survey & Quiz Tool looks like in action.
Note: In order to insert a quiz into a post or a page, you must apply a shortcode. This is how it would look:
[wpsqt name=”Quiz Name” type=”quiz”]
For example, a quiz inserted into a page or post would look like this:
[wpsqt name=”Famous Inventors” type=”quiz”]
The WPQuiz plugin is a very simple and easy-to-use plugin that’s great for an easy quiz without all the “bells and whistles”. It’s a free plugin as well.
You can insert your quizzes into pages and posts using a shortcode.
The shortcode would be, for example: [wpquiz id=2]
Here’s a screenshot of the plugin in action.
If you have tested or used a quiz plugin yourself, please feel free to share the name of the plugin and the experience you had with working with it, whether it be a good or bad experience. You can leave your comment at the bottom of this blog post.
Until tomorrow (Day 9 of The Ultimate Blog Challenge)!
