Introducing… Collections (aka: how to make a quiz on Represent)

2016-07-13_12-42-16Yesterday we launched a collection of questions that allowed users to compare themselves with the views and policies of the, now, UK prime minister Theresa May.

We’ve done a few comparison quizzes like this before, for the London Mayoral elections and for the EU Referendum.

Crafting these first quizzes was was a little time consuming as we made them by hand. But in doing so we learnt which aspects were repeatable. From there we were able to create a simpler version that any member of Represent (as well as ourselves) could put together with a few clicks. We call this feature ‘Collections‘.

Collections bring together a number of Represent’s features and technologies and allow you to quickly select existing questions on Represent to create a quiz.

Once someone has completed the quiz they are shown how they compare to it’s creator, to those they are following and their Facebook friends who are also members of Represent*.
