True/False Question

Updated on January 17, 2022

A True/False Question provides a way to quickly test knowledge and inspire critical thinking without the perceived efforts of other more complex question formats.

A True/False Question interactive content type consists of a statement that the student must decide is true or false. Alternatively, you can change the answers to Yes/No or Agree/Disagree.

Use true or false questions for:

  • Opening a lesson with a rhetorical true or false question — This provides an opportunity for students to reflect on their current understanding and biases while stimulating awareness and thoughts about the topic.
  • Quick student self-assessment — This helps students reflect on what they have learned and inform their decision to rewind videos, re-read topics, or even revisit other materials.
Attention: In the text section that precedes the H5P interaction section, add the following lead-in instruction: Check your knowledge with the following interaction:

Title

True/False question titles should reflect the category or purpose of the question. For example, for a True/False question that asks the user to identify the largest city in Australia, use the title: Largest city in Australia.

Media (Optional)

Use the Media section to insert an image or video above the question.

Question

Enter a question in the form of a statement that the user must decide is true or false. For example, Canberra is the largest city in Australia.

Note: The Question editor provides a limited number of Rich-Text editing tools such as bold and italicized text, and text justification.

Correct answer

Choose if the statement is true or false. For example, the statement Canberra is the largest city in Australia is not true, so you would select False as the correct answer.

Behavioral settings

Use the True/False Question behavioral settings to define settings such as if the student can retry the question, and provide feedback that helps reinforce the correct and incorrect answers.

Note: The behavioral settings for a True/False question are the same when used as a knowledge check or as a module quiz or mission test question.
"Behavioral settings"

Feedback on correct answer

Enter a short explanation that helps reinforce the correct answer. For example, the statement Canberra is the largest city in Australia is false. To help reinforce the correct answer (False) the feedback could be: Correct. Sydney is the largest city in Australia.

Note: The label for Behavioral settings will change to what you enter as the feedback for the correct answer.

Feedback on wrong answer

Enter a short explanation of why the answer is wrong. For example, to explain why the statement Canberra is the largest city in Australia is false, the feedback could be: Incorrect. Canberra is the capital city; however, Sydney is the largest city in Australia.

Attention: Feedback on correct and wrong answers is required
