Question bank in Rise?


I very much love Rise and would like to recommend it for my organization. The only (major) obstacle is that it seems impossible to develop a series of question banks in Rise. That for me, is a deal breaker.

Still, this should be pretty easy to incorporate. Could you please tell me if that is in the pipe works? I cannot think of a more needed feature.

Many thanks,

Had a look at this yesterday and it appears to be working as expected. The only problem I see is that the best functionality in a Storyline quiz is the settings to only show incorrect questions when users gets it wrong. We want our users to either get 80 or 100% correct in quizzes and they are sent on a vicious loop if they must pass the quiz and end up getting all questions again. Is this incorrect question functionality going to be part of the question bank/quiz feature?

I need some help please as I'm missing something here.  I've looked at all the links above and followed the instructions to create a question bank of 14 questions.  I've gone to my course and inserted a lesson and selected the quiz option but this doesn't seem to have changed and there are no options to select from a question bank.  I also need to know what the setting options are for the bank (i.e. how many questions does it know to draw), but getting it working first would be helpful.  What am I missing?

Hi Andrew, 

After creating your question bank, create a new Quiz in your destination Rise course.

Edit the new Quiz and delete both questions that are created by default.


Choose Draw From Question Bank.

Navigate to the question bank and select it.

On the page that opens, click the Draw selection settings drop-down.

Choose either Random questions or Specific questions.

If you chose Random questions, specify the Number of questions in draw.

If you chose Specific questions, select the required questions by clicking the check boxes on the right. 

Finally, click on INSERT in the bottom right-hand corner. Note that the insert button label text will change for Random or Specific questions.

If you chose Random questions, the insert button label will be INSERT DRAW.

If you chose Specific questions, the insert button label will be INSERT N QUESTIONS.

After clicking INSERT, the quiz will be populated based on your selections.

Amazing thank you so much.

Just tested and it works (almost) perfectly.  :-)

One question I have is that I wonder if I'm able to have random questions in the draw but have one particular question always appear regardless.  On first try this doesn't seem to be an option and you can definitely do this in Storyline.  Thanks again.
