The resurgence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been accompanied by a rise in ethical issues. AI practitioners either face challenges in making ethical choices when designing AI-based systems or are not aware of such challenges in the first place. Increasing the level of awareness and understanding of the perceptions of those who develop AI systems is a critical step toward mitigating ethical issues in AI development. Motivated by these challenges, needs, and the lack of engaging approaches to address these, we developed an interactive, scenario-based ethical AI quiz. It allows AI practitioners, including software engineers who develop AI systems, to self-assess their awareness and perceptions about AI ethics. The experience of taking the quiz, and the feedback it provides, will help AI practitioners understand the gap areas, and improve their overall ethical practice in everyday development scenarios. To demonstrate these expected outcomes and the relevance of our tool, we also share a preliminary user study. The video demo can be found at
