Quiz

A quiz format containing slider and multiple choice type questions

Updated 7 months ago to v5.0.0 by Flourish team

How to use this template

This template is for making quizzes, letting users answer slider and multiple choice questions. It's also possible to compare user input with a dataset of comparative answers.

Data requirements

This template consists of 3 sheets.

  • Questions, in this sheet you can list your questions
  • Feedback, in this sheet you can optionally add feedback after each question
  • End result, in this sheet you can write the end result you see after finishing the quiz.

The Questions and Feedback sheets are connected to each other. So the Feedback sheet contains answers that are linked to questions in the Questions sheet. The End result sheet is entirely optional and can be used to show a message at the end of the quiz.

Tips

  • You can change and translate all the text in this visualisation via the settings panel
  • You can specify the default comparison in the settings panel

Template data

There are two different formats in which you can supply data to this template. Which one will be more convenient for you likely depends on the source of your data, as described below.

Array of objects with arbitrary keys, and a bindings object

This format is most likely useful when you have data from an external source, such as CSV data loaded from d3-dsv. You should supply this attached to the opts.data, which might look like:

    {
        questions: [
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ],
        scores: [
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ],
        results: [
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }

... but with the keys being the column headers from your source data instead. To tell the API how these values from each column should be associated with the keys that the template is expecting, you must also supply an object attached to opts.bindings. (The meanings of the keys in the bindings object are documented below.) The minimal bindings you can supply for this template are as shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/quiz",
    version: "5",
    bindings: {
        questions: {
            text: "QuestionsHeader1",
            input_type: "QuestionsHeader3"
        },
        scores: {
            question: "ScoresHeader1",
            range: "ScoresHeader2"
        },
        results: {
            range: "ResultsHeader1"
        }
    },
    data: {
        questions: [
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ],
        scores: [
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ],
        results: [
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

All possible bindings that you can supply are shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/quiz",
    version: "5",
    bindings: {
        questions: {
            text: "QuestionsHeader1",
            explanation: "QuestionsHeader2",
            input_type: "QuestionsHeader3",
            answers: ["QuestionsHeader4", "QuestionsHeader5", ...],
            suffix: "QuestionsHeader6",
            choices: "QuestionsHeader7"
        },
        scores: {
            question: "ScoresHeader1",
            range: "ScoresHeader2",
            explanation: "ScoresHeader3",
            media: "ScoresHeader4"
        },
        results: {
            range: "ResultsHeader1",
            text: "ResultsHeader2",
            media: "ResultsHeader3"
        }
    },
    data: {
        questions: [
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "QuestionsHeader1": ..., "QuestionsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ],
        scores: [
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ScoresHeader1": ..., "ScoresHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ],
        results: [
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "ResultsHeader1": ..., "ResultsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

(As before, the keys containing "Header" would be replaced by column names from your data source.)

Array of objects with template-defined keys

There is an alternative format you can use, which is likely to be easier to use if your data is not from a spreadsheet source. With this alternative format you supply your data to the template as an array of objects, attached to opts.data, where the keys must be those used by the template, as documented below. In this case there is no need to supply a bindings object, since the key names are already those expected by the template. The required properties in the data object are as follows (scroll down for a description of what each property is):

{
template: "@flourish/quiz",
version: "5",
data: {
    questions: [
        {
            text: ...,
            input_type: ...,
            answers: [...]
        },
        ...
    ],
    scores: [
        {
            question: ...,
            range: ...
        },
        ...
    ],
    results: [
        {
            range: ...
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

And the full list of all possible properties is as follows:

{
template: "@flourish/quiz",
version: "5",
data: {
    questions: [
        {
            text: ...,
            explanation: ...,
            input_type: ...,
            answers: [...],
            suffix: ...,
            choices: ...
        },
        ...
    ],
    scores: [
        {
            question: ...,
            range: ...,
            explanation: ...,
            media: ...
        },
        ...
    ],
    results: [
        {
            range: ...,
            text: ...,
            media: ...
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

Meanings of the template data keys:

  • questions.text: Question text
  • questions.explanation: A short text explanation accompanying the question
  • questions.input_type: Type of answer input, choose between "slider" or "multiple choice"
  • questions.answers: The correct answer to the question. The score will be decided by the difference between this answer and your input. It's possible to select multiple columns with answers, this will create a dropdown list above the quiz where you can select which answer to compare to.
  • questions.suffix: Add a suffix after the value, eg. "%" or "people" (only for "slider" input type)
  • questions.choices: Options to show in multiple choice questions. Divide using // (eg. Cat // Dog // Sheep // Badger)

For slider answers, you can use numbers or number ranges, values could be "0-10" or "4" or "*" to select all answers. You can also add multiple rows with score ranges per question, the more specific scores will take priority (eg. it will choose "4" over "0-10" over "*")
  • scores.explanation: Text to show after answering question
  • scores.media: Picture to show after answering question
  • results.range: A range of points you're targeting. You can use numbers or number ranges, values could be "0-10" or "4" or "*" to select all answers. You can also add multiple rows with score ranges per question, the more specific scores will take priority (eg. it will choose "4" over "0-10" over "*")
