Hi Adam

Is there a way to change the colours on these rectangles (for the sake of confusion, didn't want to call them Blocks!) ... being on a white background, the light grey doesn't stand out too much. For example ...

Matching quiz

Whether a darker border is used around the rectangles, or even just the arrow tip in the selected colour used in the course, something to help identify these rectangles would be great.

This is quite timely!  Now I can dump the Storyline block I was using to provide this interaction.


Like above, stated by Mike, I'd love the option to modify the theme / coloring of the interaction elements.  I'd also love to see the ability to customize the interaction behavior.  For example setting an order for the "match" element that is constant - Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, etc.

I am trying to use the matching question to have the learner put something in order. On the right, I numbered 1 through 5, 1 being the top and 5 the bottom. They are supposed to drag items to their proper place, top to bottom.

Problem: The quiz is set to NOT shuffle answers, yet when I view the matching questions, both the choice & match columns are in a different order every time. 

How can I fix this? Or, better yet, can your dev team add an "sequence drag and drop" quiz question option???

I am new to Rise but what I want to know is why can't developers use the pre-built Quiz (it has a matching) as a lesson 2 at the end of a lesson 1 that was built using Blocks? Are you not suppose to mix a lesson built using Blocks with a pre-built Quiz or activity? Does this make a difference if you publish for LMS? Does it affect the tracking or scoring?

Hi LaVon,

Our team is still working on creating the stand-alone lessons as pieces you could connect to other blocks, so we'll let you know as soon as the Quiz one is ready. 

In the meantime, you can still use a Quiz (Labelled graphic, process interaction, etc.) as a singular lesson before or after a lesson compromised of blocks. Using those in the same course shouldn't cause any issues with tracking/scoring.

The matching type quiz question is perfect for what we are trying to do, but we're having an issue with score calculation. We want to include a matching exercise several courses. The problem is that the score calculation is based on the number of questions answered correctly, not the number of correct matches within the question. Since the entire quiz is technically 1 question, the learner has to match all items correctly or the quiz score calculates as 0%. Is there a way to either:

1. Score by the question, or,

2. Hide the score calculation, or, 

3. Create a matching question as a knowledge block instead of a quiz question?

Or any other idea you may have for accomplishing what we want to do...

Hi Andrea, 

Each question in a quiz is scored individually, without partial scoring. The total score is than based on the total number of questions, so if you had 5 questions each would be worth 20% of your score vs. 4 questions which would be 25% each. 

We are working on a matching question for the knowledge block, so we'll let you know as soon as that's ready!

We have been having the same issue with the extremely light borders. They are invisible on some screens we tested on, and as of now there doesn't appear to be a way of changing the colour of the outline of the shapes. 

I would also, be curious to know why the interaction is opposite to what it is in storyline, where the items on the left are stationary and you drag the choices from the right side to match. Now with Rise, items on the right are stationary while you drag items from the left to match. Feels counter intuitive especially for those long time users of the matching questions. With so much of our content still in storyline, there will be user confusion between the two same types of question requiring different engagement.

Hi Graeme, 

With Rise being a newer product than Storyline (and often times one with a different audience despite certain overlap), we try to take a look at interactions inside of Rise with fresh eyes as we build them.

When creating something like a matching quiz question, we considered what we’ve built in Storyline to help inform the process, but when we see an opportunity to improve upon something and possibly make it more intuitive or easy to use, we explore it.

That was the case with this drag and drop matching interaction—in our testing, dragging left to right felt like it had a slightly more natural feel than right to left. 

Hope that provides the insight you're looking for, and let me know if you need anything else!
