Knowledge check vs quiz design

I am creating a new template at our company and I want to do a bit of research into what other people are doing for the quiz designs.

On our current template we have an assessment or quiz at the end of the course that is very formal in design. It is made up of multiple slides that have no audio, all the pages look very similar and they are mainly multiple-choice or single-choice questions. The user gets two attempts and then is given a pass or fail. This mainly tests 'remembering' but sometimes 'understand' on Bloom's taxonomy.

For our knowledge checks which we have dotted throughout the scenes, they are far more interesting. They often have audio, they are very colorful and contain a lot of pictures. They use more complex interactions such as the drag and drop feature for example. These tend to test all the way up to analyze or higher on Bloom's taxonomy.

For our new template, I want to make the end quiz just as interesting as the knowledge checks because I think it will be more engaging for the learner and it will look better.

Do you think this will work?

Is this what other people are doing in your templates or do you keep the quiz at the end very formal?

Hey Jack! David Tait is spot on. Also, your post is perfectly timed. David Anderson just posted an e-learning challenge on this exact topic. It's a great place to see what others are doing in the community. At the end of the week, David will update the page with a Recap link so you can see all the examples together. I hope that helps!
