Quiz Maker for Anonymous Testing

Sat 15th Jun 2019< Back to Blogs and Tutorials

When giving online Tests and Quizzes, one important feature that is a must have, is the ability to create anonymous quizzes online. With ClassMarker, you can choose to NOT record names and email addresses of those taking the Tests, however you can still record the answers given.

Giving nameless quizzes is the best way to get honest answers and feedback. These types of quizzes and questionnaires could include employee surveys to gain insight on the work place, including how the managerial staff are, co-workers, the work place in general. If your employees were to add a name to a questionnaire like this, more than likely you are going to get restricted answers because they will hold back on what they really want to say. Employees would be answering 'everything is great' to all questions and this would not help at all with the feedback you are seeking, in order to make the workplace a better place for all.

Surveys that ask for personal information such as age, income, education status and so on - if users are required to give their names, these results could end up being very inaccurate because with questions as such, people tend to give lower or higher responses to these types of questions, depending on what the survey is for. If they do not need to add their name, their answers are more apt to be exact.

Health questionnaires, quizzes on topics that may be uncomfortable for some users, some student Tests and exams - these are other examples of Tests and Quizzes that would greatly benefit from being able to create these without asking for user's names and email addresses. You can still collect the data you require while protecting an individuals privacy on surveys.
