Gauge Your Audience’s Knowledge With a True/False Quiz
A true/false question is essentially a trivia question with two answer options to choose from – true or false. This quiz type is perfect for live presentations because it’s fast and dynamic.
Use it as an icebreaker at the beginning of your presentation to engage your audience while getting to know them. It will help you understand how familiar they are with your topic and give you a chance to adapt your talk to their knowledge if needed.
You could also use a true/false quiz at the end of your presentation to discover how much information the audience retained.
Excite Your Audience With a Trivia Competition
A trivia quiz tests people’s grasp of a subject in a gamified way by asking knowledge questions and measuring how many correct answers they get. Use a trivia quiz to create a competition that engages that competitive spirit in your quiz participants.
Here are a few tips to consider when making your presentation quiz competition:
- If you want to grab your audience’s attention or boost engagement in training sessions, let them know that you’ll be ending the lesson with a challenging trivia contest.
- You could also start off the session with a trivia competition and spend the rest of the time going through the answers, keeping the suspense alive while sharing information and knowledge.
- Introduce a time element by defining the winner as the person who gets the most correct answers in the shortest amount of time to make the contest more exciting and make sure it doesn’t take too long. You could add a quiz timer or bring a stopwatch for extra pressure.
- Add a prize to the mix to give people an extra incentive to take part. It doesn’t have to be big, it could be a voucher, a free event ticket, or even a silly sticker set. As long as it gives the winner recognition and puts a smile on their face, it will do the job. Using an online stopwatch during the quiz for each question will also add a bit of suspense.
While people are answering the questions you can look at the results dashboard to see submissions and results. Here you can view the ratio between correct and incorrect answers as well as the timestamp. If you want, you can use this information for live commentary during the contest.

Use a Picture Quiz to End Your Lesson With a Bang
Adding visually stimulating content to your presentation can grab people’s attention and leave a lasting impression. A picture quiz uses engaging images to draw people in and illustrate the questions, answer options, and results. Conclude any topic of discussion with an image quiz to sum things up in a way that your quiz participants will enjoy and remember.
Spark Conversation With a Resonating Quiz
Sometimes it can be challenging to get an audience to shift from the comfortable position of being a passive listener to being an active participant. A good quiz can be a big step in the right direction.
All you need to do is ask 2-3 surprising trivia questions or challenging personality questions. After people answer them privately they will be more inclined to discuss the question topics in the group because they are already invested and involved.
Encourage Introspection With a Personality Quiz
While trivia is the classic choice for a quiz night or live presentations, a personality quiz can also enrich any class or lecture, and add depth as well as fun to your audience’s experience.
Unlike trivia quizzes, personality quizzes are less about knowledge and more about self-discovery. They don’t have incorrect or correct answers, they ask for your opinions or preferences and use them to tell you something about yourself.
Use a personality quiz in your presentation to connect with your audience. Let’s say you’re giving a lecture about learning styles, you could start it off with a “What type of learner are you?” quiz to put them in touch with themselves in the context of your topic.
You could also invite them to share their results and talk about the experience to encourage them to empathize and connect with each other. It’s a memorable and experiential way to introduce a topic that could otherwise seem distant or theoretical.

Now move on to your questions. Make sure that they are clear and easy to understand, and don’t forget to include a number of answer options for people to choose from. If you’re making a personality quiz you should also associate each answer option with the relevant result.

Introduce the competition dramatically to create a gameshow-like atmosphere. Of course, you could include a prize for the winner and runners-up to seal the deal.
4. How to Integrate a Quiz Into Your Presentation?
You can integrate a quiz in your presentation in three ways:
- Copy the title and cover image of your quiz into your presentation and configure them as a hyperlink to your quiz. This option is good if you’re solving the quiz with your audience in person, or if your audience members each have individual access to the presentation.
- Create a slide to introduce the quiz and send the quiz link to your audience members via chat or messaging app. This option is good for remote presentations, where each participant is supposed to take the quiz separately.
- Turn your quiz link into a QR code and add it to your quiz slide for your audience to scan. This one is best for in-person presentations or remote presentations that are screen shared.
5. How do I Host an Interactive Quiz?
Hosting an interactive quiz is easy, all you need is a bit of gusto and enthusiasm. The rest will take care of itself.
Write an exciting introduction that you can easily relay to your audience. Use it to prepare them for the experience without divulging too much information. After all, you want to keep them curious.
Depending on the quiz goals, you could also include a timer for each question. Add commentary during the quiz based on what you see on your dashboard. Things like “responses are starting to come in”, “I’m seeing some interesting results”, etc.
At the end of the quiz, you can share your dashboard showing the results on the presentation screen. Use the data as a conversation starter for the next section of your presentation, or as a way to announce the winner with flair. Just remember to make it fun, and interesting, and speak to your audience to keep them engaged.
