Based on a recent question about knowledge checks, I started wondering what kind of action Knowledge Checks were. The compendium doesn't seem to state it for monster knowledge checks (but, e.g. detect magic checks are a standard action). Are they Free, Minor, or Standard actions?

No action is required

From the Rules Compendium pg 130.

Action: No action.

A character either knows or doesn't know the information.
