  • Am I able to change the name of the answers? Instead of using True or False, can I use Yes or No?

  • You can not change the wording in "True or False" module, however you can just use the first two answer options in the "Quiz module" and name them Yes or No. The live Kahoot will only show these.

  • Hi there, is there a way to remove the "Find and insert media" option in the middle of the quiz slides, if we just want to use a text-based question and make it fill up the space at the top half of the slide?  I noticed that if I don't add an image, that area is still empty, making for a bit of an awkward slide where the question is at the very top and the answers at at the very bottom with an empty space in between.  Thanks so much!

  • No, it's a standard default feature of Kahoot!.
    It's what makes Kahoot engaging and fun, and makes the learning stick better.
    What's the context for your Kahoot! use-case? Why don't you want to show any media to the participants?

  • Thank you so much for the quick reply!  We are creating a Kahoot quiz game for a student-led class activity to review some of the lecture content.  There isn't any specific media we'd need to include based on the questions so I was wondering if we can remove the media section.  If not, that's totally fine, I'll think of something to put there!

  • A workaround could be just to type: "Question" in the top bar, and then upload your own media file with text (this can be done in PowerPoint and exported to JPG), as shown here.

  • Thank you for the suggestion, we will try this if we don't have a good media file to include!  And thank you again for your quick and helpful responses :)

  • How to change a Kahoot quiz from a "my drafts" to "my Kahoots" ? Every time I click save it tries to upsell me on my subscription. Very frustrated.

  • hpeastling20 To save your game as a playable kahoot in My kahoots, you either have to remove all the features marked with a star (not included in your plan) or upgrade to a plan that offers all the features used in your game. Here's an article on saving your kahoots: How to save a kahoot.

  • Hi Learning_India

    1. What is the max length for a question? Answer: Quiz Questions can be up to 120 characters

    2. What is the max length for a descriptive answer? Answer: Quiz Answers can be up to 75 characters or an image

    3. is it mandatory to keep 4 options for answers? can it not be 2,3 options? Answer: This depends on your subscription but at least 2 answers are required (6 max), and at least one must be correct. The answers you leave blank, won't be displayed

    4. is there a way for the participants to see the question from their end along with the time countdown, other than seeing from the host's panel? Answer: Yes this is possible. When you host your live game, you can edit the settings by clicking the settings icon in the down-right corner and from here you can choose to "show questions & answers" on players devices

    Check out this cool help article which can explain even more cool things you can adjust: https://support.kahoot.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002308428-Kahoot-question-types

  • Is there any way to increase the number of answer options past 6? I have a poll but I need 10 answer options.

  • Hi sallydeering

    Currently, our Poll feature only offers up to 6 answer options.

    A way to come around this might be to use the new Scale feature (if available in your licenses). You can add your poll options in a Slide and then convert that slide to an image you add to the Kahoot. The participants can choose on the Scale, which option they prefer the most (See image example).
    This can only be done if it's not a multiple-choice poll.

     

    I hope this is useful?
