Types of Questionnaires, Quizzes or Surveys


Our promotion quiz has considerably evolved over the past months. The new version is much more than a multiple-choice form. We have now included a number of new features so that the forms created with our apps raise expectations, and are both amusing and challenging for participants.

What new options will you find when setting up the questionnaire, quiz or survey?

  • You can now sort answers by type (A, B, C, D, etc.). This will enable you to show different messages to participants depending on the type of answers have selected.
  • Rate answers and show scores to a single participant and/or to all users.
  • Each participant will be presented with a set of randomly-chosen questions. This way, different questions will be asked to each user.

You will find all these options in section 9 of the settings form of a Cool Promo or a Cool Promo White Label.

1. Opinion polls

This is a very simple template, you just need to come up with some questions about your products or services, or about whatever the subject matter you would like to gather user opinion about. You can select the option to include text answers only, so participants can answer freely all the questions you may want to ask.

Text answer

If you want, you can suggest standard answers. This way, survey respondents will just have to choose the answer that best fits with their opinion.

Or you can include stars rating from 1 to 10.

2. Quiz with or without points for right answers

In this quiz participants have to give the right answers in order to win. They usually have to choose one or more answers from the options available for each question.

In this quiz, participants have to give the right answers in order to winYou can give points to users for right answers and display the overall score obtained by each participant, or else, publish all the results so everyone can see them. Not all questions need to be weighted equally, as there may be questions which are more difficult than others or which may be more important to win the final prize of the competition.

Moreover, you can display a different message to those participants who have successfully answered the questions facing those who have not. The participants who have answered everything right will see the “Personalised message for those participants that correctly answered the question” after participating, while the other participants will see the “Standard message to all participants“. Both messages can be created in the “Promotion design” section.


3. Quiz in stages

Publishing one or more questions everyday or often until the competition finishes is a good way to keep participants engaged and maintain regular interaction with your followers. In this case, users will have to provide the right answers but they won’t be able to answer them all at once. Instead, users will have to access the quiz regularly to check for new questions.

4. Questions for which the most original answer gets the point

This free-text answer can also be useful to ask open questions that challenge participants’ creativity. The voting option can be enabled for this type of contests, so users can vote for the most original answers. In this case, we will activate the option ‘Make participant answers visible’ in order for everyone to see them.

5. Random quiz

For some campaigns, it can be useful to come up with a test or quiz with random questions. This way, we can select a set of questions and decide how many of them will be asked to each participant. The Cool Promo or Cool Promo White Label application will randomly select the number of questions you wish. This will allow you to create a different participation quiz for each participant in the competition.

6. Personality test

Are you a big fan of BuzzFeed quizzes and would like to create one for your followers? This is now possible thanks to the option to group the answers by type. This way, the participants who select mainly type A answers will get a message, those who select type B another one, and so on and so forth.

To design a personality test with Cool Tabs, you just need to choose a type for each of the answers you include in the quiz.

Once you have created your questionnaire and have decided which answers are type A, B, etc., you just need to create a different message for each answer type. This can be done from the ‘Promotion design’ section, in the field ‘Choose the type of message you want to show users after participation’. Then, choose the option ‘Custom message for each answer type in the questionnaire’ and write a message for each answer type in your personality test.

7. Quiz with instant solutions

This quiz is very typical for the type of questionnaires with a similar topic to “Choose whether the following statements are true or not”, where users choose whether they think it is true or false and immediately they are told if they have answered correctly or not and why. You can see an example of this type of questionnaire here: Truth or myth?

Trtuh or myth?


8. Quiz with a time limit to answer questions

This is even more difficult! If you feel that answering all the questions correctly is not difficult enough, you can also set a time limit to complete the questionnaire. The participants can choose to close the window and try to complete the quiz later, but, once the time limit for answering the questions has expired, it will be useless for them to try to answer the quiz, as this will no longer be possible.
You can set a time-limit to complete the quiz in section ‘Promotion periods and winners’ (You must set the time limit in seconds).

There are the different questionnaire templates you can create with Cool Tabs, but you don’t need to select just one of them, you can pick up the features you like from all of them and then, create your own quiz. Also, if you decide to include it on your website or blog, we provide you two different widgets: One showing the cover of your questionnaire and another that allows you to display the entry form directly. You will only have to indicate the size of the widget, copy the code provided by Cool Tabs and paste it into your website.

You will find these two widgets in the section called ‘Content info’, in ‘Embed widget’.
