With True/False questions, students choose true or false in response to a statement question.

True/False questions are graded automatically. If an assessment only has this type of question, the assessment scores are posted automatically for students to view.

When you create a new test, select the plus sign to open the menu. In an existing test, select the plus sign wherever you want to add a question. Select Add True/False question.

You'll use the same process when you create questions in tests and assignments.

The Test Content area opens where you create the question and select True or False as the correct answer. Questions have a default value of 10 points. Select the Points box to type a new value.

You can use the options in the editor to format the text.

To use your keyboard to jump to the editor toolbar, press ALT + F10. On a Mac, press Fn + ALT + F10. Use the arrow keys to select an option, such as a numbered list.

To help keep your test content organized, you can add files within individual questions. Make a selection from the editor's options or Insert Content menu, such as Insert from Cloud Storage.

The True/False question type only allows True or False answers. Use the Multiple Choice question type to use other binary answer sets such as Yes/No, Agree/Disagree, or another combination of answer choices.

ULTRA: Add, edit, and delete questions

After you add the first question, select the plus sign wherever you want to add another question, type text, or upload a file. You can add as many text blocks and files as you want.

Before students open the assessment, access the menu to select Edit or Delete. To change the points, select the score pill and type a new value.

You can edit the text of a True/False question, even after students have made submissions. After students open the assessment, you can't add new questions, delete a question, move the content, edit the values, or change which answers are correct.

Select Align with goal from the menu to align goals with individual assessment questions to help your institution measure achievement. After you make the assessment available, students can view information for the goals you align with assessments and questions so they know your expectations.

Edit files within questions

You can edit settings for the files you've added to questions. Select the file in the editor and then select the Edit Attachment icon in the row of editor options. You can add a Display name and Alternative text. Alternative text describes the image for people who use screen readers or visit web pages with images turned off.

You can also choose whether to insert the file as a link in the editor or to embed the file directly so it appears inline with other content you've added.
