With FlexiQuiz, you can stop test-takers from submitting their responses for the whole quiz or moving to the next page without answering the mandatory question(s).
When creating or editing a question, you can select the 'required' option to mandate a response. Required can be applied to all question types, including fill-in-the-blanks, essay, file upload, and multiple choice. The 'required' setting is helpful if you need the test-taker to supply a particular piece of information, answer a specific question, or act as a reminder for any missed items.
This guide shows you how to set required questions and demonstrates the test-takers experience.
If the questions are going to be mandated before submitting the whole quiz, you can skip to step 8.
If you would like to ensure the question is answered before the test-taker moves to the next screen, the previous page option will need to be disabled.
Important! Once participants move to the next page, they will not be able to go backward.
If you select a time limit for the quiz, the test will still automatically submit when the time expires - even if the required questions are not answered.
This image shows the message that participants are shown if they have not provided a response to a required question. Don't forget that paid plan members can customize this message on the Configure/ Theme screen.
Top tip! If you have many questions, we would recommend that you number them so that it's easy for students to find the unanswered questions. This can be done with the Auto number questions option on the Configure/ General screen.
The FlexiQuiz system will highlight any required questions not answered within the test as shown in the image below.
