You can create a self-grading or self-marking Quiz in Microsoft Forms that shows results after you submit the answers. In this post, we will show you how to get this done. Microsoft Forms is a powerful tool, and it is the only major competitor to Google Forms. It is so powerful that folks can use it to create and share quizzes with others via the web. When it comes down to grading the quiz you’ve created, Microsoft Forms has made this super simple.
We like quizzes because they can be used to test the efficiency of students, and employees at a company, and even for fun purposes. With all of this in mind, it is clear one must take full advantage of the auto-grading feature in Microsoft Forms.

Can Microsoft Forms be used for quizzes?
As far as we can tell, the answer to that question is yes. It is definitely possible to use Microsoft Forms to create quizzes of different varieties. When creating a quiz, be sure to take advantage of the many options to give it some flavor.
What is the difference between a form and a quiz in Microsoft Forms?
The difference is simple, really. A form usually consists of several text areas for users to add relevant information, while a quiz comes with correct answers for the user to choose from and can be scored.
Which is better Microsoft Forms or Google Forms?
From our point of view, both tools are impressive, but they differ in several ways. For example, Google Forms hasn’t changed much, and as such, it looks boring. Microsoft Forms, on the other hand, looks modern.
