This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WpCues Basic Quiz


The plugin tries to approach creating quiz, grading it and issuing certificate,badges and assign levels in the best possible and
efficient manner.


  • Create quiz with multimedia rich content.
  • Add mathematical formulas and symbols easily. You can use latex or mathml. The math symbols will be displayed with the help of mathjax.
  • Categorize your quizzes and questions in custom categories.
  • Randomize Questions and answers

  • Award partial marking in question having multiple correct answer

  • Email notification to user / admin / editor (quiz creator) when someone takes quiz /attains new level /get issued new badge.

PDF Certificates

  • To show pdf certificates, you need mpdf library . You can download it from official mpdf repository.
  • Place it inside ‘lib’ subfolder inside public folder and you are ready to publish stylish pdf certificate to your users.
  • The reason that I have not included that library by default is because of it’s size (53 MB) as it can cause some unforseen problem while plugin activation hampering basic usage.

How are grades calculated?

WpCues Quiz computes the grade either on basis of total points collected or percentage correct answer scored by the visitor. Then it finds the grade. For example: If you have 2 questions and the correct answers in them give 5 points each, the visitor will collect either 0, or 5 or 10 points at the end. You may decide to define grades “Failed” for 0 to 4 points and “Passed” for those who collected more than 4 points. In reality you are going to have more questions and answers and some answers may be partly correct which gives you full flexibility in assigning points and managing the grades.
You can also issue certificate on the basis of grade attained by the user.

How do I show the quiz to the visitors of my blog?

You need to create a post and embed the quiz short code. The quiz short code is shown in a column on Quiz table. Also you can directly insert from add/edit quiz form by clicking ‘Insert into post’ button.
You can place as many as exam shortcode as you want in a post /page or anywhere (even in widget in sidebar).

How to translate the plugin interface in my language

You can use the standard WordPress way of translating plugins (via Poedit and .po / .mo files).
If using Poedit, your file names should start with “watu-“. For example: watu-de_DE.po / They should be placed in wp-content/languages/plugins folder.
