Quizzes and Assessments are helpful tools in Kajabi

They can be used to increase student engagement and help course creators gauge student performance and better understand an audience’s needs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Quizzes can be included as part of a course to test your student’s knowledge
  • Students can be asked to complete assessments to check their understanding of a subject before moving to the next section of a course
  • Assessments can also be used on a website or landing page to gain feedback from potential customers to better understand their needs and interests

What Is the Difference Between a Kajabi Quiz and Assessment?

A Kajabi quiz is designed to include specific questions (often in a multiple-choice format) to test a student’s knowledge. 

Quizzes will relate to a certain subject or section of a course and are included within the product. The quiz feature in Kajabi allows learners to upload files and photographs if needed as part of their answer for you to review. 

You can also use the information to make improvements to your course

For instance, if the majority of your students are getting a specific question wrong, it could mean that the answer is not clear in your content.

Assessments will often include more wide-ranging questions when used as part of a course. 

They are also used to help understand what customers want to learn and their general knowledge regarding a topic. 

Assessments can enable you to tailor the content you share and offer relevant products.

What Are the Benefits of Using Assessments and Quizzes in Kajabi?

Personalize Offers

Customers will give you a lot of information when they complete surveys, quizzes, and assessments. Using this information, you can tailor the offers you provide. 

Creating personalized offers means targeting potential customers with the things that really interest them, giving you a higher chance of making a sale.

Marketing Data

The details provided in assessments can be a great marketing tool. 

You can use the information to understand which products your audience enjoyed and which they may have been less enthusiastic about. 

Potentially, the information provided could be used in your marketing strategy and SEO.

Gain Feedback on Quizzes

When a customer completes a quiz in Kajabi, it will be within their course. 

The information they provide in the quiz will show you what they have understood and learned. 

You can use this information to alter the content you provide if required, and also provide them with feedback as part of their learning journey.

Receive Files

Where required, both quizzes and assessments on Kajabi have the option of allowing users to upload files. 

Receiving files can be an excellent tool for assignments, more long-form answers, providing photos, or any other files.

What is an Assessment in Kajabi?

Assessments are another useful tool for gauging a student’s knowledge as they progress through a course, but they can also be used on a website or landing page to obtain general feedback from site visitors with ‘open’ questions that allow for a range of answers.

When used as part of a course product, answers and a pass mark can be automatically set. After submitting their answers, a student will immediately receive the results.

Once a potential customer completes an assessment when used on a landing page or website, Kajabi will automatically prompt the visitor to subscribe to your email list.
