Create quizzes out of questions

In WOKcraft, a WOKer can make quizzes (Qz) with a subject containing 7 or more questions. Like  "Bruce Springsteen quiz" with questions about rock singer Bruce Springsteen. This quiz is placed in one of the Main Category and then into a subcategory. There are over 1000 subcategories (SC) in WOKcraft. For example, a Bruce Springsteen quiz would be placed in the Main Category MC: "Entertainment & Music" and subcategory (SC): Rock to name an example. When it comes to the app WikiMaster, all questions are sorted into tags which is the same as Wikipedia articles. Som in WOKwiki, the MC and SC are basically replaced with the tag=wikipedia article. 

Subcategories in Quiz King

In Quiz King, subcategories (SC) are not used. Only (MC). Any question that is within an MC and approved by SuperWOKer is among the randomly chosen to pop up in the round. A Question (Q) can be placed in a quiz in WOKcraft and be used for many quizzes. 

Keywords with tags create a quiz to Wikipedia

A tagged question is attached to a Wikipedia article. The tag "Albert Einstein" to a question will be used for WOKwiki app for questions linked to the Wikipedia article "Albert Einstein". Every time a WOKer add a tag to a question: The question will be added to the Wikipedia article related to the tag. Therefore; WOK will grow in usefulness every time you play Quiz King and add a Learning link or and a tag. The tags are also a good way of putting a question into a context and help WOKers to get knowledge organized. A tag has nothing to do with Main categories and Subcategories in WOKcraft. Tags help to create quiz based on subject. And the Main Categories (MC) and Subcategories (SC) help WOKers to create quiz into subjects without relation to Wikipedia.  

General Knowledge as the default category

If a question is made and not put into a category: The question is placed into the General Knowledge Main Category as default. Many questions would, therefore, be moved to any other MC by the WOKers. The MC Current Events contains things that effect in near time. Over time; questions will be moved from Current Events into other categories when the question loses its "current" value. 

Quiz King is more than a single Quiz app: Its part of WOKcraft, the social platform for quizzes. It is called WOK. Short for "World of Knowledge". WOK is probably already one of the largest databases of multiple choice questions in the world by 2015. Growing by the day. So all of us WOKers have to sort them. Into categories and with tags. When you take a quiz in the sister app WOKwiki: You will, for example, see the Main Category symbol when you review the questions.
