How to Create an Auto-Submit Quiz in 3 Easy Steps!

Sometimes students and respondents face issues while submitting quizzes as the timer runs out. Creating an auto-submit quiz is the best solution for such challenges. If you want to make an auto-submit quiz that does not require extra time or labor, you have reached the right place.

In this blog, we will learn to create an auto-submit quiz with the best quiz maker, Quiz and Survey Master plugin. We would also go through some basics about timers in quizzes and how to use these basic features to create an outstanding quiz or examination. Teachers and educators especially benefited from this feature, so that online invigilation could be executed smoothly.

With the help of QSM features, we have created a sample quiz explaining the auto-submission feature. Check it out below:


What is an Auto-Submit Quiz? How is it Different from Other Quizzes?

An auto-submit quiz is a sort of online quiz that is automatically submitted when a specified condition is satisfied, such as a time restriction expiring or the user answering all of the questions. To put it another way, the user does not need to manually click a “Submit” button to complete the quiz; the submission process is automated based on predetermined criteria.

Unlike regular quizzes, where the user must manually click a “Submit” button to indicate that they have done answering all of the questions and want to submit their answers for evaluation, this one does not.

Auto-submit quizzes frequently have a time limit for completion. When the timer runs out, the quiz is automatically submitted. This adds a time constraint and can be used to replicate time-bound scenarios or to prevent cheating by limiting participants’ ability to search for answers. In a typical quiz, the user decides when to submit their answers by pressing a “Submit” button. The submission of an auto-submit quiz occurs automatically without user participation based on specified parameters.

Creating an Auto-Submit Quiz

To create an auto-submit quiz, we will be using the Quiz and Survey Master plugin. To use the QSM plugin, you need to install and set up the plugin on your WordPress website. You can download the QSM plugin from the Plugins Menu in WordPress.
