This page provides resources to help you set up your own Pew Research Center Political Typology, Religious Typology or Religious Knowledge group quiz to share with your students or community. If you have additional questions that are not answered on this page, please contact us.
The Center’s group typology quizzes allow you to collect the responses of a selected group of people (such as students in a class or members of a community) and compare them with the results of the general public. Sharing a group quiz is simple – just copy and paste the unique link you receive via email after you create a new group quiz. When at least five people have taken your group quiz, you will be able to see the group results and compare them with those of the rest of the country.
To create a group quiz, register for a Pew Research Center account. From your account page you will be able to create and manage group quizzes.

How do I administer the quiz to the group?

What does Pew Research Center do with the results?
Pew Research Center provides the results to you and your group members as a service to your community. Only a person who has the results page link (URL) will be able to see the results. We will not publish on your group results.
