What Is the Multiple Choice Knowledge Check?

Knowledge checks are multiple-choice questions that periodically assess learner comprehension. Knowledge checks allow you to ask learners a question and explain why their answer was correct or not. Knowledge checks aren't graded and therefore do not count against a learner's final score.

How to Create a Multiple Choice Knowledge Check

Navigate to the lesson builder, then open the Add Element menu. Hover over Knowledge Check, then select Multiple Choice from the list.

Next, fill out each of the fields as directed. Add a prompt, the question you want learners to answer. Then add the correct answer and the reason it's correct. Finally, add incorrect answers to test how well your learners understand the subject matter they've studied up to this point. Theoretically, you can add as many incorrect choices as you wish, but 1 to 3 will probably get the job done.

๐Ÿ’ก Tip: You can use knowledge checks to create true or false questions.

When each part of the knowledge check has been added the color of the fields will change from red to blue-gray, signifying completion.

Learner Experience

When learners encounter a knowledge check, they'll see a question (that is, the knowledge you want them to have) and several answers from which to choose. After selecting an answer, the Check Answer button will be activated. Clicking this will immediately assess the learner's work.

If the learner answers incorrectly, the element will show a red X and the learner will be encouraged to try again. Clicking Try Again will reset the element and randomize the answers.

Once learners answer the quiz correctly, the Try Again button will be disabled, and learners will not be able to retry the question unless the lesson is restarted or reassigned.

๐Ÿ’ก Note: Knowledge checks are required and cannot be made optional at this time. Moreover, it's not sufficient that learners merely answer the knowledge check. They must solve it by clicking 'Check Answer' to verify their choices. Should a learner attempt to complete a lesson without checking their knowledge, they'll be met with a notice like this one:


Two reports aggregate knowledge check data. Admins and users with content permissions can download these reports on the Insights tab under More Reports.

This screenshot shows the location of two knowledge check reports; they're located about half way down the More Reports page on the Insights tab.
  • Knowledge Check Attempts shows the number of knowledge check attempts recorded in your account in the last 90 days. Attempts are categorized by learner, lesson, and question subject.

  • Knowledge Check Correctness shows the percentage of correct attempts per knowledge check question.
