Article author
  • Updated

Audio and Video Responses are types of questions that enable your students to answer using audio or video to a question that they read from their screens. 

Audio Question enables you to record your question within the New Quiz Editor. This question type enables your students to listen to the question and answer accordingly. 

The Audio and Video Responses question types are available on the Quizizz Individual (Super), and School and District Plans.

To create Audio Questions on Quizizz, follow these steps:

  1. Click on 'New Question' to add a question 
  2. Click on the 'Audio' tab


    Note: You need to allow Quizizz to access your microphone. This is a one-time requirement

  3. Record your audio by clicking on the 'mic', or upload a .mp3 file from your device
    The maximum length of an audio question is 120 seconds.


  4. Replay the audio for clarity; you can re-record multiple times if required
  5. Click on 'Save' to complete the question

To enable Audio and Video responses on Quizizz, follow these steps:

  1. Click on 'New Question' and click on 'Audio/ Video' 
  2. Type a question into the question editor. You can also access the equation editor
  3. Select the response type for either audio or video (between 5 - 120 seconds)
  4.  Click on 'Save' to complete the question
  5. Once the quiz is shared (either as live or as a homework assignment), students' responses will be recorded under reports

  6. Every audio/video response type is awarded 100% scores as default as this is an ungraded type of question. 
    You cannot download their audio or video responses from Quizizz reports.
  • Note:
    Audio and Video response questions can be re-scored using the manual rescore tool that is available on the Quizizz Individual (Super) and School and District Plans. 

    Live games cannot be manually re-scored.  

Here's how your students will see the Audio and Video responses question type:

  1. Students will need to grant access to their device's microphone and camera. This is a one-time requirement

  2. They can record either audio or video (depending on the type of submission asked in the question) by clicking the record button. If the recording is not permitted on their device, they can skip the question. Skipping an audio/video response will not affect their grading. 
  3. Retakes and replays are enabled for your students to improve their recording
  4. Once the recording is complete, they will click on 'submit' to finish answering the question
