Test Your Knowledge: A Guide to Quiztastic
Quiztastic, by Play Fish, is not really a game per se. Instead, it is a means by which to use Facebook to create, share, and take quizzes online. The game supports both personality quizzes and knowledge testing quizzes and allows players to share the results. This guide will help you create a quiz or find your favorite quizzes to test your knowledge.
Play Menu – When you choose the “Play” option from the starting screen, you are brought to a screen where you can choose a quiz to take. This screen shows you one featured quiz, the most recent 5 quizzes to be created, and the five top rated quizzes. It also provides an option for you to choose a random quiz or browse quizzes.
The “Browse” menu shows you every quiz ever created. You can filter the menu by language and by category of the quiz. You can also order the menu by most popular (based on number of people who have taken the quiz), best rated, most recently created, and featured.
Taking a Quiz –
When you are taking a quiz, the quiz will give you a question and four possible answers. Depending on the quiz, you will have a 5 second, 15 second, or 60 second time limit to answer each question. You will be told if you are right or wrong immediately upon answering. Quiz questions may include pictures as part of the quiz. At all times, the quiz will display how many questions the quiz is comprised of and how many you have answered.
When you complete the quiz, you are given results with how many you answered correctly and how much time you took. Also, your results are compared to other people who have taken the quiz. If you scored well, your QI (Quiz Intelligence) rating will increase by one. If you scored poorly, it will decrease by one. Also, for completing a quiz, your reputation will increase by one.
Quiz Types –
You can create three different quiz types. You can create a knowledge quiz by choosing the “Quiz” option, a personality quiz by choosing the “Personality Quiz” option or a friend specific knowledge quiz by choosing the “Friend Quiz” option.
When you choose to create a quiz, you will be required to name your quiz. You are encouraged to choose a descriptive name and you may include a picture and a description with the name. Also, when you choose the name, you choose whether the quiz is available worldwide, to only your Facebook friends, or to only select friends.
After you have chosen a name, you must choose a studio and host for your quiz. There are five options: Tony, Tina, Vince, Emma, and Mrs. Perkins. This will affect the visual display of your quiz but will not affect difficulty or content.
Next you must enter the questions for your quiz. You are required to enter at least 5 questions and may enter many more. With each question, you may also include a picture. First you enter a question, then you enter four answers, and the first answer must be the correct answer. For personality quizzes, you need at least two answers and may have up to four and must indicate which result an answer indicates.
After you have written your questions and answers, you must choose settings for your quiz. This is where you choose the time limit for each question, the quiz category, and the language of the quiz.
On Air –
This option lets you publish your quiz. You must agree to a standard user agreement before publication.
Personality quizzes have an additional step after “Studio” and before “Questions”. In this section, you must provide at least possible results and may provide more. These results will be the possible results indicated by the answers to your questions.
Many of the sections, including “Name”, “Results”, and “Questions” allow you to upload a picture. You can upload a picture directly from your computer or from your Facebook account.
