DilogR customers have built some amazing scored assessments like How Productive are You?, How Good is your Follow-up Marketing?, and How Well Are You Recognizing your Employees? These assessments are more than just a simple scored quiz.
They allow you to create customized feedback based on individual answers as well as provide feedback based on the overall score or on different sections of the assessment. You can present this feedback to the quiz taker on the Thank You page and/or in a Custom PDF report that you email them after they complete the quiz.
We’ll cover the CREATE Module in Part 1 and the automatic Wizard steps as you go through the creation process.
This tutorial starts after you have created a new Project, as outlined in How to Create a Project (Basic).
Tip: It’s always best practices to have your quiz questions and answers prepared beforehand so you can work smoothly through the Wizard steps.
The CREATE Module
WIZARD STEP 1: Project Title
Once you have created an Advanced Scored Quiz, the first step is to name your Project Title.
The Project Title is for Admin purposes and is only visible to you. Make the name distinctive enough to where you can easily find it when you search through your list of quizzes.
You can also upload and align a logo here if you want. NOTE: The maximum height of the logo will be 100 pixels. Please keep that in mind when you are uploading your logo.
Do not forget to SAVE.
Tip: You can go back to the Headline/Subhead icon later to give your quiz a headline (title) and subhead and upload a logo if necessary.
WIZARD STEP 2: Project Template
Choose a template for your quiz from the options available. You can change the colors in a later step to match your brand.
Do not forget to SAVE.
WIZARD STEP 3: Create New Question
Once your template is selected, you will automatically be directed to Create New Question. DilogR offers several types of questions and answers – including images – to choose from:
- Multiple choice – select one
- Multiple choice – select all that apply
- Multiple choice – dropdown list
- Multiple choice – image answers
- One choice – image answers
- Short answer
- Long answer
- Date and/or time
- Question Rating
- Question Upload file
- Question Lead
Click on Add new question on the left, choose the type of question you want to use from the dropdown menu on the right, and enter your question into the text box. Use the HTML editor to format your question.
- Require an answer for this questionIf checked, this question must be answered before moving forward.
- Randomize answer choices for each respondentAnswers will appear in random order for each new participant.
- Display image under question text — this will make the image largerYou have the option of including a picture to go along with your question.
- Number of columns to display the answers?Your answers can be shown horizontally rather than the usual vertical placement.
You have the option of including a picture to go along with your question. Click on the Add image button to upload your image. By default, the image shown will be approximately 175 x 100 pixels and displayed to the left of the question.
If you choose the option: Display image under question text – this will make the image larger, then the image shown will be 725 x 425 pixels and the image will appear below the question and above the answers as shown in the image below.
- Add/delete answers by clicking on Add/Delete (+ -).
- If you are scoring your quiz, enter the point value of each answer under Points.
- Checking Allow “Other” as an answer option will allow your participants to add their own answer in your quiz.
Advanced (button on lower left)
DilogR’s Advanced Add Redirect feature allows you to choose where to send someone if they choose a particular answer. For example, if they answer Yes to the question asking if they eat bacon daily for breakfast, you can send them to a webinar project on how eating too much saturated fat can also raise your cholesterol levels!
Good to Know: When you branch to a new project type, the participant’s data — such as email, first, and last name — will be transferred over to the next project if you use a beginning lead capture form. However, the Contact Id is specific on every project so you will get duplicates in your database. You may opt to redirect the participant at the end of the quiz if this is a concern.
We’ve covered the automated wizard steps that you take when you create a new Advanced Quiz Project. Now we’ll cover the remaining icons: Preview, Grades, Recommendations, and Custom Code.
Choosing this icon provides the option of… previewing your quiz!
DilogR provides a nice feature called Preview Settings (you’ll find it at the bottom of the Preview screen). Since many of your questions might be required, testing can be cumbersome if you want to run through the quiz to see how it flows. Checking Preview your quiz… allows you to view each page of questions without being required to answer each one.
Here we come to the heart of DilogR where you can tally up the score of your total quiz as well as the quiz sections and provide recommendations based on those scores.
Let’s go through each of the three choices at the top: Grades by Total Score, Sections, and Grades by Section.
— Grades by Total Score
Once your questions are completed and points assigned to each answer, click on the Grades icon and you will see how many total points are in your project, in this case, 75 points. If you’re testing someone on their knowledge of a subject, this is where you can provide a scoring range depending on their answers. You can skip this section if it doesn’t apply to you.
In our example below, several segments have been created, ranging from Poor with a score of 0-29, to Very Good with a score of 70-75. If your quiz is based on passing or failing, this is where you would set up that score range.
Tip: Start with the highest level first. In this case, we created the segment Very Good, 70-75, and then moved down. Starting from the bottom will create an Invalid Interval error message.
Here you can separate your quiz into sections and create grades for each section, again an optional feature. For example, if certain quiz questions are related to heart issues, check the box next to those questions, give the section a title and click Save. You can then go on to separate your other questions into various sections.
— Grades by Sections
Here you can now assign grades to each of the sections you created in the previous step. Click on Create Grade next to each section title, name the section (usually the same name but can be something else) and then assign the points to it. Most of the time is will be between 0 and the max point range.
This segmenting of questions also allows you to pinpoint certain traits of a person based on their responses. For example, one of our most popular quizzes is The Mean Girl Quiz. (Really. <g>) This particular client broke down their questions into various “traits” and assigned scores to those traits. Then based on your answers, the quiz provides recommendations, which is what we’re covering in the next section.
If the Grades feature is the heart of DilogR, then Recommendations is definitely the soul of DilogR. Here is where your hard work comes together.
Let’s go through each of the three choices at the top: Intro, Individual Answers, and Grades.
This is just what it sounds like: a brief intro into what Recommendations has to offer — a way to provide custom content to your participants based on their individual answers and/or based on their score (for quizzes). After creating these recommendations, you can then choose where they can be viewed: the Thank You page, in an autoresponder email that you send to people immediately after completing your survey/quiz/video, or in a downloadable report that gets sent out as part of your autoresponder email.
— Individual Answers
Click on “Add Recommendation” to create a recommendation for any answer. You can create recommendations for all of the answers or just a few. It’s a very effective way to provide individualized recommendations based on answers, such as in a learning course. For example, if someone is taking a course, at the end of the course module you can show them what they chose and whether it was right or wrong.
— Recommendations for Grades
In the previous section above — Grades — you created different scoring ranges for total score and for individual sections. In this section you provide recommendations (or feedback) based on those scoring ranges.
Let’s use The Mean Girl Quiz as an example. Clicking on the Grades tab under Recommendations will bring up a list of the different sections or the total score you had set up. Next to each you will see an Actions option:
Here is where you can customize your quiz based on each individual’s responses. If someone scores the highest in Perfectionist, then this is what they will see on the Thank You page, via email, or in an attached PDF. Be sure to check the box next to Enable this Recommendation or it will not appear!
You also have the option of redirecting someone to an outside URL, such as to a landing page on your site. You may have several product/service offers and this is an excellent way to guide a very targeted market to those landing pages!
Another use case: If you are using DilogR as part of a learning course, you can use this feature to tell someone what to do if they passed or failed, as demonstrated in this recommendation for someone who didn’t pass.
This section of the Create module is generally for more advanced users. We won’t go into great detail in this training post but you are welcome to email [email protected] for more details.
Two of the most commonly used features of Custom Code are placing tracking codes and changing the CSS of your quiz.
CSS “gurus” can easily change the look of their quizzes by tweaking the CSS of their style sheets. Again, we won’t go into detail on this feature. Our support staff is happy to help with this: [email protected]
