Fascinating. I was deliberately leaving out two answers I thought were obviously wrong. They weren't.

maybe not force them to be answered in order

I was considering not forcing them to be answered in order, but I figured that would make it a bit too easy. For instance, simply entering one particular last name would answer three already.

Upon reflection, I realized that probably it would be better not to force them to be answered in order, so I changed the quiz accordingly. Note, however, that I'm no longer giving the political party.

It is too easy not to have to name these in order. The year makes it that much more easy as well.

I'm fine with the entry system but you could cut down on the time quite a bit, I only had a fair idea of some of the more one-sided US president elections and I'm still left with 2:14 on the clock. Good idea for a quiz though.

Okay, I've made the quiz back into my original format, which requires the answers to be entered in order, gives the year in the answer, gives the political party as a hint, and allows 4 minutes. From the responses I've gotten, this is probably the best format in terms of difficulty.

I understand the difficulty issue, but having to answer in order was a bit aggravating—I had a pretty good idea of who they were, but which one had 61.1% and which one had 60.8%? I would cut back the time, instead, because as it stands you wind up typing (or, let's be honest, copy/pasting) Roosevelt over and over until you find the right slot. (And yes, I realize I'm necroposting.)

Yeah there is no reason for these to be in order, no average sporcler should know these in order, but they could know them not in order. The forcing answers in order makes it a guess and check quiz.

If you want to force it to make it something more than a "name all the Presidents" quiz, keep it that way. I was like adhair, I knew some of the bigger landslides, but didn't know the percentages. It made it a fun challenge to get through it (got my last clue in with 3 seconds on the timer). Good quiz!
