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.
To create a True/False Question:
- Browse to https://academy.pega.com.
- In the upper-right corner, click Log in, and enter your Pega Community credentials.
- Edit the topic to which you want to add the True/False Question.
- In the Sections area, click .
- From the list of content types, click .
Use the True/False Question editor to provide a statement, and define if the statement is true or false.
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.
Use the Media section to insert an image or video above the 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
