Watu Quiz

Watu Quiz | Kiboko Labs



Create exams, surveys, and quizzes and display the result immediately after the user completes the questionnaire. You can assign grades and point levels for every grade in the exam / quiz. Then assign points to every answer to a question and Watu will figure out the grade based on the total number of points collected.

Watu for WordPress is a light version of Watu PRO. Check it if you want to run fully featured exams with data exports, student logins, elaborate grading system, categories, reports, etc.

Very quick and easy to start: Watu pre-fills a simple demo quiz with 3 questions when you install it.

This plugin is mobile / touch – friendly. The quizzes will work on mobile devices and phones.

Please go to Watu Quizzes in your dashboard to start creating quizzes, exams or surveys.

Online Demo

Feel free to check the live demo here. It should answer most “pre-download” questions.
If you have more doubts just download the plugin and check out if it works for you. It’s free and takes a few seconds to install and activate.


When opening a support thread please provide URL (link) where we can see your problem.

A very common problem is not being able to submit the quiz, or the quiz does not displays at all. This is usually a fatal JavaScript error caused by other plugins or your them. If you are technical you can easily find the error yourself by checking the JavaScript error console in Chrome or Firefox. Disable the offending plugin and everything will start working normally.

Developers API

In order to allow other plugins to integrate better to Watu we have started working on developers API.
The following action calls are currently available:

= do_action(‘watu_exam_submitted’, $taking_id)
Called when exam is submitted, passes the attempt ID

= do_action(‘watu_exam_submitted_detailed’, $taking_id, $exam, $user_ID, $achieved, $g_id)
Same as above but passes also the full exam object, the user ID, points and grade ID

= do_action(‘watu_exam_saved’, $exam_id)
Called when you add or edit exam (after submitting the changes). Passes the changed exam ID.
