Who says quizzes can’t be fun? As we enter another school year and you might be on the hunt for new and improved ways to keep your students engaged and excited, we’re sharing four interactive quiz types to help keep them on their toes!
Interactive Quiz Types to Energize Your Students or Audience
And of course, we have all of the tools you need to run these quizzes with ease. In fact, Swift Polling makes it easy to set up and launch your quizzes in just a few clicks. Before you know it, you can be energizing and exciting your students or any audience with quizzes they are actually excited to take.
One of the great things about music quizzes are all of the different directions you can take this interactive quiz type.
For example, your question could include song lyrics and the multiple choice responses could include the artist who sang that song. Alternatively, you can use song lyrics as a question and your students or audience need to choose the correct name of the song from the multiple choice responses.
Music quizzes are undoubtedly a fun icebreaker option in music classes. But you can also use general music trivia to quiz an audience in any format and break the ice between group members.
At the start of a school year, an interactive memory quiz is a fun way to see what your students have retained from the year before. This offers educators a lot of insight into the areas you need to cover again, or in greater detail, before digging into new content.
There are also plenty of directions to take this interactive quiz type beyond testing what your students recall from the previous year. One option is a short-term memory quiz where you ask your students to recall words or events that have just happened.
For example, you could show your students an apple, a toy car, a doll, a pencil, and a book and ask them to remember in which order you showed them these items. Then, 20 minutes later you could quiz your students to test their recall skills and if they remember the correct order of the items.
Pub quizzes are all the rage right now and it’s no surprise! They’re fun, fast, and help break the ice in audiences or groups of all sizes. While you might not be taking your elementary school students to a pub for this interactive quiz type, there’s no reason you can’t adapt this quiz style to work in a classroom setting.
All it takes is creating trivia style quizzes and sharing them with your students or audience. You can also go ahead and choose any topic or subject for this interactive quiz type. That way, if you’re trying to get your students engaged in a particular subject, you have a fun trick up your sleeve for doing so.
To make these quizzes more interactive and engaging, share the results in real-time with your students on the leaderboard. Your students can watch their name climb to the top of the leaderboard while sparking a friendly sense of competition between classmates. With Swift Polling, you can even choose from all kinds of trivia games customized to your audience and their interests, including team trivia showdowns and multi-day events, trivia showdowns, and multi-day events.

Music Video Quizzes
We love that music video quizzes can be created for groups of all ages. If you’re creating an interactive quiz type for high school students, the music videos you quiz them about will tend to be different than the ones you quiz a group of students in their 40s about.
If you are quizzing adult students about music videos, playing clips of music videos from the 1980s is a fun way to spark a sense of nostalgia and create discussions among audience members.
