New Thrive Quiz Builder Feature: Right/Wrong Quiz Type

After the release of our Thrive Quiz Builder plugin, we got a lot of enthusiastic feedback along with some interesting suggestions for how we could improve it.

In the latest version of the plugin, you'll find the first new feature that we added, based on user suggestions. We call it the "right/wrong" quiz type. Check out the video to find out how this quiz type works.​

When Thrive Quiz Builder was launched right/wrong answer was the only feature that I was missing so I asked for it. And now my dream came true. Thank you.

Quiz pop ups would be great new feature Shane!

I’d love to create pop ups like http://tribeworkshop.com and such

This is so awesome.
Thanks a lot, i’ll be a new customer soon.

Looking at the responses I see a great way to segment, prequalify leads on my contact me page

    Yes, that’s one of the greatest advantages of using Thrive Quiz Builder!

Awesome, Shane. My clients and I were just reviewing our quiz yesterday and agreed we needed to change it. As ever, your timing is uncanny; this is exactly what we need. Thanks!

    Glad we managed to swoop in with a solution just in time. :)

Is the ability to allow users to leave written answers to open ended question on the development list?

I could see this software being able to handle the Ask Survey Funnel methods.

However, without open ended questions and answers it’s going to be harder to really get what your customer thinks, believes, likes etc.

    Hi Matt,

    No, this is not a planned feature. We are currently not planning to turn TQB into a surveying tool, because that would take away from the marketing and conversion focus that the product was built for. The main purpose of TQB is to be highly engaging and then lead people to a targeted conversion goal.

    Adding survey features would slow down the process and make it a product for a different market and different purpose.

    If I’m not mistaken, there are already countless free survey tools and apps that can do what you’re looking for.

    Matt, I really, really appreciate TQB as I think it is #1 for building quizzes, hands down. Your point, however, about creating opened ended questions to handle the Ask Survey Funnel Method is greatly appreciated. Did you ever find any survey software that could handle that?

Thrive Quiz Builder keeps getting better and better – as do all your products :)

Perfect! I’ve been looking for this option. In the future can it be set up to show all their answers at once after the quiz has been completed? I think it would be a better experience versus quickly flashing it on screen after each selection? Just a thought…

    Thanks for the suggestion, Fred! We’ll add this to our list of feature requests.

Connecting active campaign tag to each answer (not just result) would be really valuable.

    Shane Melaugh Reply

    That’s complicated, but potentially useful, yes. We’ve got a feature for this in development right now.

You do an excellent job of creating and editing your videos. How about a blog post on the process and tools you use to record and edit and any tips you use? thanks

Really nice feature!

Naomi K Reply

Cool! Love these new features.

Brilliant, love it. Any chance you could add something to the start of the quiz to suggest it’s loading. I sometimes find the delay before the quiz starts puts people off taking the quiz! I’ve experimented with putting a small piece of text saying ‘quiz loading’ but this shows on the results screen too and so doesn’t work.

    Shane Melaugh Reply

    Thanks for the suggestion, Julian. That’s a good point and something I’m adding to the feature requests list.

Nice addition. I’d like to be able to tag an Infusionsoft contact record based on what answers the user picked. This is the main feature missing for us.

    Shane Melaugh Reply

    Hello Arlene,

    We’re working on a feature like this. Unfortunately, Infusionsoft is making it very difficult for us because they don’t provide any kind of test or sandbox account and getting an infusionsoft account just to test our integration is prohibitively expensive.

    We’re trying to work this out with them, so we can bring better features for Infusionsoft users, but for the moment, our hands are tied.

Great new feature, thanks for overdelivering!

Great new feature.
But I still have one that I’m desparately looking for: I would like to give feedback, being not only the right answer, but also an explanation on both the right and the wrong answers, imeediately after they entered their answer. So depending on their choise they get some feedback. Only one type of feedback would also be a major addition too ;-).

    Shane Melaugh Reply

    Thank you for the feedback, Saskia.

    We’re currently not planning to implement such a feature. It would add quite a lot of load to the setup of a quiz and it would also mean that we have to pause the quiz and require another user input to move to the next question. This would be a big change to the plugin and I don’t think it would benefit many people. So, for the time being, I can’t promise you an addition like this.

Love your plugins but have a question regarding quiz builder. I want to build a test online for people to take a test to see if they know their stuff in my industry. I want them to answer without looking up the answers online. So, maybe this is a feature request. Is there a way to timeout a question if there is no answer for a particular time period. Say 30 seconds or 1 minute?

Stan G Reply

One tactical suggestion and one technical question: The best kind of quiz is one where you learn from each of your mistakes. Being shown the correct answer isn’t enough. On its own, it can make some visitors feel stupid. I’d like to be able to display – along with the correct answer – a hyperlink that directs the visitor to a specific resource page when he enters an incorrect answer (ie. each wrong answer can generate its own ‘teaching’ hyperlink at the same time it generates the correct answer. Technical question: Because this plugin, as well as many of your others, displays dynamic data and images, are there any http header types that should not be included in gzip and browser caching code when I optimize my site’s page loading speed (for instance, is it advisable NOT to provide Expiry times for javascript because of the dynamic nature of the data presented)?
