Differences Between Poll, Trivia, and Prediction Overlays

Explore the difference between the multiple-choice question overlays on Maestro.

Poll, Trivia, and Prediction overlays all involve multiple-choice questions you can create, but each serves a slightly different purpose.

Here is a breakdown of each of these different overlays:

  • Poll: an open question that has no correct answer
  • Trivia: a question that necessitates a correct answer, which you have to create when you create the object. When a user answers a trivia question, they will immediately know whether or not they have answered correctly.
  • Prediction: a question that starts in an open state. This means that the user can select any answer. A prediction does not have a correct answer when it is in an "open" state, but once it is closed, users can no longer submit responses. The final state occurs when you select "completed" on the prediction. You will then select the correct option which the users can then see.
