Mine was, "Famous Last Words of Famous People", it wasn't my worst rating with a 5.88, but I didn't think it was as bad as all that. The ones that were rated lower, yes, they probably deserved it, I admit it.

Mine would have to be "North American roller coasters." I had a lot of fun researching that one but less than 10 people took it. I'm thinking it was rated in the low 5's

I have 2 that are in the very low 5's..."B*tch Quiz" and "Pick the Fake - R&B Album".

One of my first quizzes was about one of my favorite movies of all time, "Saturday Night Fever." I think it's a good quiz for fans of the film but it's one of my lowest rated quizzes. Can't win 'em all. :D

My lowest was one of the first quizzes I ever wrote. It was my "Home Depot Quiz' that my husband (a Home Depot employee) helped me write. I thought it was interesting, but I guess I made it too hard because I had one person complain that only the president of Home Depot would be able to get 100% on the quiz - lol! My "Collectors" quiz is also rated pretty low too.

My lowest rated quiz was "Sky Diving." It covers the terms & facts of this sport. While it is not easy, I do not think it is that bad.

my most disappointing quizzes are the ones i wrote when i was just beginning to write quizzes. They were titled Golf.... and they were decent quizzes, not stunning, but decent. I have golfed for 40 years, and I should have known better, but I wrote them. I got several whiney complains from people, most with golf as part of the ID, over minutia, often because they had some local rule outside the strict rules of golf and that meant the quiz was wrong.

5.47 - It was for Hockey Team Origins - it is difficult one but then you should know that before you take it - so why do people still rate them so low ----- because they don't get high scores, but that isn't any reason to rate them low.

All of my quizzes seem to be within 0.5 points average or so of each other. My lowest is a drug quiz based on brand names beginning with D. I admit it was very hard to make and to take, so I am sure why that is the low one. It was rated 6.45 or something like that.

My lowest is a Simpsons quiz. Taken 244 times, rated 5.8 and average score was 6.60. I am not sure if it is rated low because it is a bit harder then some of the easy Simpson quizzes, or just sucks. *shrug*

In case anyone is thinking of taking it, it is 10 questions on the simpsons, not the simpson quotes quizzes.

Hi everyone,
My highest rated quizzes have been "Fun with Lyrics" (I received a lot of positive feedback on this quiz) and "NY times Crossword Puzzle." I also think that sometimes specialized quizzes don't receive the respect they deserve, esp in the Arts category, but I am a bit biased there

I will have to try some of the quizzes you have all mentioned!

OOPS, my last posting was for the wrong question.

Anyway, my lowest rated quiz is Suz's Godfather Quiz, which, again I may be biased, I believe receives poor ratings because it is difficult,and designed to stump people, not because the content is bad. People seem to rate quizzes poorly if they don't do well, not on the true content quality. I find that really frustrating.

I'm lucky to get rated in the 6-7 range. I did get bombed (a 4!) on a Sports quiz by someone who scored low, which is why I quit writing quizzes in the Sports category. I put too much time, research, and effort into my quizzes to be treated so meanly.

I have 2 that 'By the Sea' I can understand this one, because your would have to be familiar with the UK coastline to have a chance really. The other one 'Kaspie Knowledge 2' I have no idea as it is along the same lines as the other's in the series and they were much higher rated However, it is all ok with me, as everyone is entitled to rate as they feel is right.

When you finish a quiz and it was much harder than you expected you scored poorly, you tend to feel frustrated and therefore it was not "fun"...we need more rating "really tough but well written" - "very obscure trivia!" - "reminded me I'm not as smart as I thougth I was" - "really tricky distractors" - and things like that

I have noticed that quizzes with high numbers of taker get sucked lower in ratings as taker numbers rise. I guess high taker numbers means more low-raters and more people who just automatically give every quiz a 5 or 6 as evidenced by their averages of either 5.00 or 6.00
