WORD ORIGIN

1867, "brief examination of a student on some subject," perhaps from quiz (v.), or from apparently unrelated slang word quiz "odd person" (1782, source of quizzical). According to OED, the anecdote that credits this word to a bet by the Dublin theater-manager Daly or Daley that he could coin a word is regarded by authorities as "doubtful" and the first record of it appears to be in 1836 (in Smart's "Walker Remodelled"; the story is omitted in the edition of 1840).
