The Quiz That Made $1.1 Million
How did an online eyewear business use a quiz to generate over $1.1million in 6 months? They created a short 9 question quiz: "What glasses frame matches your personality". This simple personality style quiz assigns a style of eyewear based upon your answers. "What is your favourite decade?" "Pick a celebrity icon" The answers were presented as image options, more Buzzfeed than business. Quiz takers were given the option to signup for the Zenni newsletter as well as their eyewear style and a link to those styles on the Zenni website. Backed with savvy search marketing the quiz generated over $1.1 million dollars in revenue.
Increase Memory and Learning by 50%
Robert Bjork a research psychologist specializing in memory and recall illustrates the power of quizzing students in the following experiment. Two groups of students: Group A is given a lesson 4 times. Group B is given the lesson once and then quizzed 3 times. In a final exam Group B outperforms Group A by 50%. Known as the 'testing effect' or 'test enhanced learning', the process of retrieving memories leads to dramatic improvements in long term memory retention.

How to make your Quiz a success
Low response rates and subsequent data bias are the biggest issues facing online surveys. We've reviewed the research and lean on our 10 year+ experience to help you improve survey response rates.
Test 1-6 days after the initial lesson
Meta analysis on the goldilocks zone for when to test shows too soon and the lesson is not fully processed by deep memory, too late and the material is forgotten. Test 1-6 days after your initial lesson.
Make it low stakes for students
There is an ever increasing body of research showing just how powerful testing is on improving long term memory and learning. It is important for educators to let students know the reasons behind frequent testing are in order to assist deep learning and not simply an evaluative process. For this reason prominent 'testing effect' researchers Roediger and Karpicke recommend tests be low stakes for students.
Provide quiz results after the test
You have two options when designing your quiz, let the student know if they've answered correctly or incorrectly immediately or let them know when the test is completed. While there still needs to be more research it appears delaying feedback until after the test is completed works best. The theory is that delayed results cue the students memory again which improves subsequent retrieval.
Personality quizzes dominate
77% of the most highly shared quizzes are personality quizzes. These are the 'What kind of 'x' are you?' quizzes and they work because they appeal to a sense to learn and share content about ourselves. B2C analysis of 100 quizzes that received 10,000 or more shares found virtually identical title structure 'Which' 'are' 'you'.
A great social share image
Our own research has shown the social media share image attached to your quiz is hugely important in creating viral uptake. This is the preview image displayed when your quiz takers share your quiz. Countless times we've seen double digit increases in click through rate simply by changing the social media share image.
Informal and short
Your quiz should use informal conversational style language. B2C analysis of the most shared quizzes found greater use of personal pronouns in the most viral quizzes. Questions like 'Which is your decade' with images of dress styles in various decades are visually engaging and easy to answer. We've found 6-10 questions total to be optimal.
