We all know that variety is the spice of life, so why do most quizzes stick to the same multiple choice or open-ended format throughout?

There is so much you can do with a pop music quiz. Mix up the questions with a spicy variety of multiple choice text, image, sound and some open-ended questions as well.

Or you could branch out of the standard pop music quiz format entirely and indulge in some outside-the-box kinds of rounds.

How to make an open-ended quiz type for an interactive quiz on AhaSlides.
Music Quiz Questions

With any text, image or sound pop music quiz, you can choose to make the question open-ended instead of multiple choice.

Simply ask the question and list out what answers you will accept on the slide. Any answer that exactly matches any of these will get the points.

Quiz Type #5 - Word Cloud

using a word cloud to play an interactive game on AhaSlides
Pop Culture Trivia Questions

A word cloud is one of those out-the-box quiz types we talked about earlier. It works on the same principle as the British game show Pointless.

Simply give your quiz players a category and ask them for the most obscure answer from that category. Answers that are mentioned the least get the points and answers that are mentioned the most get nothing.

For example, you could create a word cloud slide and ask your players for any of Billboard's top 10 female artists of all time. The answers that appear largest are the ones that were put forward the most by your players. The smallest correct answer that appears is the one that takes home the points!

Note that word clouds are not categorised as quiz slides, so you'll have to make note of the scores yourself.
