Create a True/False question

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.

With True/False questions, students choose true or false in response to a statement question. True/False questions are graded automatically. You can't change the points an individual student earned for an automatically graded question.

You can only randomize answers for Matching and Multiple Choice questions. If you want to randomize answers for True/False questions, use the Multiple Choice question type with True and False answer choices.
