Captivate provides a Knowledge Check slide that you can use to enforce learning activity for learners. These knowledge check slides are useful when you want your learners not to be graded but to test what they learned by attempting some questions. 

Features of knowledge check slides

  • Knowledge check slide imbibes similar features of question slide without any results, reporting structure and interaction ids. 
  • Knowledge check slides do not participate in reviews. 
  • Random questions are not applicable to this knowledge check slide. 
  • Master slide and controls usage is similar to question slide. 
  • Knowledge check slides can be used to impart the learning on specific topics. 
Unlike question slide, if the learner passes over the knowledge check slide and returns to it, the knowledge check slide resets.
