    Post Javascript Quiz

    I've seen a lot of JS quizzes around the web and I think that they're much more convenient to visitors than using other services such as those commercial quizmakers found in the web.

    I tried researching for simple ways to integrate a quiz using javascript in my blog but I can't seem to work it out and it's somehow frustrating me. I don't want to pay for commercial quizmakers because I know there are easier ways around.

    So what I'm looking for is a JS code for a quiz I'm trying to make. A multiple-choice type where quiztakers will be able to see 1 item in the blog post/page (containing a question and 4 choices) and a next button. When the quiztakers presses the next button, he will be taken to the 2nd item and so forth until, let's say 20. At the end of the quiz, there will be a button of finish and if he clicks on that button, he will be redirected to a page where he will see the correct answers and some explanation of the answers.

    I hope that makes sense. I just need a very simple script.

    Just to let you know, I'm an amateur blogger and hasn't really studied all these stuffs professionally. Anything that will help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    While this is not the most efficient way to do this, it is simple and easy to modify.
