We love quiz lessons, but sometimes you need to check to see if your learners are paying attention with a quick exam. Or you want them to apply their new knowledge right away to reinforce retention. That’s where ungraded knowledge check blocks come in. See the instructions below for details.

Step 1: Add a Knowledge Check Block

  1. Open a Rise course, then edit an existing lesson or create a new one.

  2. Click All Blocks on the blocks shortcut bar or the insert block icon (+) that appears when you mouse-over a boundary between blocks.

  3. From the sidebar that appears, choose the Knowledge Check category in the block library and select one of the four block types.

Multiple Choice

You know it, you love it. If you don’t know the answer, you still select “C” every time, right? Multiple choice questions are quick and easy to build. 

Multiple Response

The more verbose sibling of multiple choice, this question type keeps learners on their toes and makes sure they’re absorbing your content by offering multiple correct answers. 

Fill in the Blank

Why did the __ cross the road? To fill in the blank, of course. You can define multiple correct responses and turn case sensitivity on or off.


Make a list of associated pairs, then Rise breaks them up and shuffles them. The result is a fun drag-and-drop assessment that has learners getting hands-on with terms and concepts you want them to retain.

Step 2: Add Question Text and Answer Choices

Once you’ve inserted your knowledge check block, it’s time to add your question text and answer choices!

  1. Hover over your knowledge check block and click the Edit button that appears. 

  2. The sidebar opens with the Content tab selected by default. Enter question text and add answer choices. If you need additional answers, add them below the default fields. 

  3. For multiple choice and multiple response questions, mark the correct answers. 

  4. If you’d like, use the Question Type menu to convert your knowledge check to a different format. Make sure your question and answer choices make sense in the new format. For example, when you switch from multiple choice to matching, your answer choices remain intact, but you’ll need to add matches for each choice.

  5. Click the camera icon to add images, videos, or web content.

Step 3: Add Feedback

If you’d like your learners to see feedback when they answer a question, follow these steps. 

  1. Use the Feedback drop-down list to select the type of feedback you want to display:

    Any Response (default) displays the same feedback no matter which answer the learner selects.

    Correct/Incorrect feedback lets you create custom responses for right and wrong responses.

    By Choice lets you enter different feedback for each answer choice in a multiple choice knowledge check.

  2. Enter your feedback text.

  3. When you’re done, click the X icon to close the sidebar.

Step 4: Customize the Block Settings

Hover over an existing block and click the Design icon that appears on the right-hand side to customize block settings. Note that background colors only affect the block background, not the background of the question.

Tip: Add a continue block after your knowledge check block when you want learners to complete it before moving on.
