These are the different types of questions available on Quizizz for Work -- 

These question types can be used while creating your interactive Quizzes and Lessons. Let's take a closer look at each of them. 

Multiple Choice 

Multiple Choice supports questions with two or more (up to five) answer options, where only one of these options is the correct answer. However, you can click on the 'More than one correct answer' option if your question has multiple correct answers. 

Fill in the Blank

Fill in the Blanks enables participants to manually type answers either in a single input field (with a character limit of 999) or in separate boxes per letter (with a character limit of 40). 

Single input field

Separate boxes per letter 

This question type supports alternative answer options as well. Participants can also 'show their work' by uploading images along with their answers for evaluation. 


These are questions with no correct answers. They can be used to conduct surveys and find out how your participants feel about a particular issue or topic. With Polls, you can allow participants to select either one or multiple options. 

Word Cloud 

Word Cloud is ideal for when you want to ask your participants an open-ended question and tap into their feedback instantly. This question type presents your participants' answers in the form of a word cloud, where the most frequently repeated answers are shown in the largest fonts. 

Participants can answer a Word cloud question with up to 20 characters. As the host of the quiz, you will be able to see responses both individually as well as in the word cloud format. This helps you visualize information quickly and easily, especially during live quizzes. 


By adding Slides to your quiz, you can create an interactive presentation, also known as a Lesson. Slides can contain text, images, videos, gifs, audio clips, video clips, and so much more. You can format the contents of your slides as you wish and even add interesting themes to it. 


Enable your participants to draw, identify, and mark up a blank canvas or an uploaded image using the Draw question. They have the option to choose between a highlighter, a pen, a color wheel, and an eraser. They will also be able to undo or redo their work.

Open-ended questions are perfectly suited for long responses from your participants. The character limit for this question type is 1000 and a message shows up on screen when the answer exceeds 800 characters. Participants can also upload images to show their work and submit it for evaluation. 

Video Response & Audio Response 

Enable your participants to record an audio or video clip as part of their response to your question. You can choose between 5s, 10s, 30s, 1m, and 2m as the time limit for their responses. 

When participants see this question, they will get a window that enables them to record and submit their audio/video responses. They have the option to play and re-record (retake) their responses multiple times to improve their submission. 

You can access their responses on the reports page. However, you cannot download them. You can manually grade answers submitted for this question type.

With this question type, you can assess participants on their higher-order thinking skills and gauge their understanding of a topic. Participants will see a series of shuffled options which they can then arrange in ascending or descending order, as per your question. 


Encourage your participants to match concepts and topics with this question type. They will see these options shuffled and will have to drag and drop the answer options to match each other. 

Drag and Drop 

With this question type, participants can fill in blanks in a sentence by dragging and dropping answer options.

To create a Drag and Drop question, type in your sentence in the question field. Click on 'Add correct answer' or type in two underscores ('__') to create a blank in the sentence where you can enter the correct answer option. 

Click on the 'Add incorrect option' button to add incorrect answer options that can act as distractors while your participants attempt the question.

Math Response 

With the Math Response question type, participants can use the equation editor to input their answers in the form of numericals, fractions, expressions, or a single equation. Here are the various options available to them on the editor. 

With Mathematical Equivalence enabled, a participant's response that is equivalent to your answer will also be marked as correct. For example, if you have entered 1.5 as the expected correct answer to your question, 1½ and 3/2 will also be recognized as correct responses in the reports.


The Labeling question type enables your participants to drag and drop text labels onto different parts of an image.

Begin by entering your question and selecting the image that needs to be labeled. Next, enter your label options and mark the correct one(s). Then, drag and drop the correct label options to their correct locations on the image.

You can add up to 10 label options and mark multiple options as correct. You can also add equations to the question and label options using the Equation Editor.

Graphing is an auto-graded question type that enables participants to answer a question by plotting solutions on a graph. You can choose between points, linear, quadratic, and exponential solutions.

The Categorize question type shows participants a set of options that they can organize into groups. For instance, they can sort tasks according to the teams that are responsible for carrying them out. 

This question type supports up to four groups or categories and up to 20 options in total. The options can include text, images, or equations. Participants can drag and drop the options into their respective groups. They can also use the number keys or the arrow keys to move the options around.
