What Is the Difference Between Quizzes and Forms?

  • Quizzes allow you to add an extra layer of correct answers to each question in the form, and a number of points to be kept in a tally as your users fill in their answers.  Several answers can be included in each question and Microsoft Forms will use these as the basis for scoring. 
  • In comparison, Forms do not allow score keeping but request either Choice, Text, Rating Date inputs using a date picker or a ranking.
