Mentimeter: The Quiz Essentials

Mentimeter suggests using quizzes within larger presentations, which means their standalone quiz mode has a narrower focus for a specific purpose. 

  • 🌟 Best For:
    • Newbie Presenters: If you’re just dipping your toes into the world of interactive presentations, Mentimeter is super easy to learn.
    • Standalone Quizzes: Perfect for a quick competition or icebreaker that stands on its own.

Core Quiz Features

  • Limited Question Types: Quiz Competition features stick with formats for quizzes with only 2 types: select answer and type answer. Mentimeter lacks some of the more dynamic and flexible question types offered by competitors. If you’re craving those creative quiz types that really spark discussion, you might need to look elsewhere.

  • Customization: Adjust scoring settings (speed vs. accuracy), set time limits, add background music, and incorporate a leaderboard for competitive energy.

  • Visualization: Want to adjust colors and make it your own? You might need to consider the paid plan.

Team Participation

Menti quizzes track participation per device, making true team-based competition tricky. If you want teams to compete:

  • Grouping: Get ready for some ‘team huddle’ action, using a single phone or laptop to submit answers. Could be fun, but it might not be ideal for every team activity.

Pricing Challenges

Mentimeter offers a free plan to try things out. For the full toolkit, check out their paid options. Just a friendly reminder, those are billed yearly, so consider your long-term presentation needs. 

For individuals and teams:

  • Basic: $11.99/month (billed yearly)
  • Pro: $24.99/month (billed yearly)
  • Enterprise: Custom 

For teachers and students

  • Basic: $8.99/month (billed yearly)
  • Pro: $19.99/month (billed yearly)
  • Campus: Custom 

Overall: Mentimeter offers a no-frills quiz experience.  You won’t find fancy features here. It’s best for those needing a very basic quiz solution, either as part of a presentation or on its own. If you seek more flexibility and audience engagement tools, other platforms might be a better fit.
