How does Quizgecko work?

Quizgecko's AI-powered question and answer generator works by first analyzing and extracting the key facts from any text. Then we use the same AI that powers ChatGPT to generate different types of questions and answers. You can learn more here.


What can I use it for?
Quizgecko is perfect for generating quizzes, exams and tests. Whether you are a teacher, student or business, you'll find that the platform is flexible enough for all purposes. You can export content, embed it, share quizzes with anyone to take online. Then get reports and stats on the results.


How do I create a quiz?
To create a quiz, first you need to either some text, a URL or upload a suitable file. Then simply hit generate. You can optionally pick the types of questions you want, the difficulty and the number of questions you want to generate.

What types of quiz questions can I create?
You can create multiple choice questions, true or false questions, short answer questions and fill in the blank style questions from any text. By clicking "Add" after you have generated the first set of questions, you can add additional questions to your quiz. We have a large set of sample quiz questions here, all of which were made with Quizgecko.


How much text do I need to add?
We recommend that you use a minimum of 500 words. More text will generally result in better questions. If you want to generate up to 12+ questions, then you'll generally need over a thousand words. We recommend that you break very long pieces of text into topical categories.


How can I improve the quality of my results?
Virtually any text will work, but using factual text content (as opposed to opinion, discussion or narrative) generally results in better questions. If you notice that the AI is frequently generating incorrect answers, then this is typically because the text is suboptimal.


How can I share my quiz?
To share a quiz, first you need to set it to public. Then you can copy the shareable URL and share it with your team, students or friends. Before sharing, you can optionally configure the quiz settings.

How can I export my quiz?
You can currently export your quiz either as simple text or as a CSV. The text export uses the Aiken format, which is compatible with many popular LMS platforms. To export, first generate a quiz or click "Edit" on an existing one. Then you'll see the "Export" button. Click that, and you'll be presented with a range of export options.

What text can I use to generate quiz questions?
Quizgecko is an AI Question generator for any text. You can use text from any source, e.g. articles, presentations or notes. Alternatively, input URLs and upload files (Pro), then we'll try to extract the text and make quiz questions from it. Please ensure you have the right to use the text first.

I need to import a QTI into Canvas / another LMS. How do I do that?

We have a beta QTI export function, that can be found in the Export dropdown menu. Please let us know if you encounter any issues.


Are the answers always correct?
If quality, accurate text is used, then it's rare for the AI to make factual errors. It's important to note, though, that like humans, the AI can make mistakes and 100% accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription at any time simply by clicking "Cancel Plan" in the billing section. Please check you are logged in first. If you cancel, you will continue to have access to your account until the end of your current billing period. If you cancel during your current billing period, you will not be charged for the next billing period.


Do you offer a free trial?
We don't offer free trials, but we do offer a free plan that allows you to generate up to 3 quizzes per month. This is normally enough to try out the service and see if it's right for you.

Do you have an API?
Yes, you can use our API to generate questions from text. Ideal for developers who want to implement question and answer generation into LMS platforms, e-learning platforms, or other applications. Learn more.

Do you have a Chrome extension?
Yes, we have a free Chrome extension that allows you to generate questions and answers directly from any web page. Install our Chrome Extension.

Can I generate a quiz from a YouTube video?
Yes! Simply copy and paste the YouTube URL, or use our Chrome extension to generate questions from the video transcript.

With the free account, how long do I have to wait to be able to generate questions again?

The limits on the free plan are currently calculated on a rolling 30 day basis, so if you wait a few days and then come back, you should be able to run another generation.

What language does Quizgecko work in?

You can generate questions in virtually any language. We are also gradually translating the website to various languages. Languages such as Spanish, French, German and Hindi, Korean and Chinese will be first.

Can I choose the number of questions I want to practice in a quiz, or am I required to take all the questions?

Currently, you are obligated to take all the questions in a quiz. However, there is a workaround available. You can create a copy of the quiz and remove some questions from it, allowing you to create a shorter version of a longer quiz. This way, you can customize the number of questions you want to practice
