True/False questions may be the simplest type of eLearning questions. They are widely used in testing and evaluating learning performance. Now let’s learn how to insert True/False questions in ActivePresenter.

Overview of True/False Question

True/False question is a factual-based question. It is a statement which is either correct or incorrect, therefore, it gives learners only two answer options: true or false. This type of elearning question comes in handy when you want to test learner’s knowledge about a specific idea or concept in a very short of time.

There are some variations of the True/False format. That is, you can change the True/False answers to Yes/No, Correct/Incorrect, or Right/Wrong.

Create a True/False Question

This section will show you full details about how to create a True/False question in ActivePresenter through 6 stages: Insert a True/False Question, Set Correct Answer, Change Answer Layout, Set Scores and Reporting, Add Events – Actions, and Add Feedback Messages. 

Let’s start right now!

Insert a True/False Question

To insert a True/False question, do either of the following:

  • In the Interactions tab > True/False
  • In the Home tab > Interactions > True/False

Then, you will see a new question slide in your project:

True-False Question Slide in ActivePresenter

As you can see, a True/False question slide has three parts, including the top text box (1) to add question title, the answer area (2) with two answer options, and the Submit button (3).

Keep in mind the following notes:

  • Each answer option comes with a radio button. Freely format this button if you like by selecting the answer area then accessing the Format tab. See Working with Check Boxes and Radio Buttons for more details.
  • You can neither remove nor add more answer options (a True/False question always has two answer options as discussed in the above section).
  • You’re free to create variations for True/ False answers. This means two answer options are not necessarily True – False. They could be Yes – No, Correct – Incorrect, or Right – Wrong. All you need to do is to edit the text. 
  • To change the tab order value, first select the question. Then, access the Properties pane > Interactivity > General. For next steps, see Using Tab Order.

Tip: After customizing the question, right-click the answer area and select Set as Default True/False Question if you want to reuse it. Then, this question will appear each time you insert a new True/False question.

Set Correct Answer

Double-click the radio button that corresponds to the correct answer option in order to specify the correct answer for that question. 

Change Answer Layout

ActivePresenter 7 offers two layouts for answers, namely None and Grid. Select the former to freely change the size and position of any answer option. Otherwise, go with the latter to arrange answer options vertically or horizontally.

Do as follows:

Step 1: Select the answer area

Step 2: In the Properties pane > Size & Properties > Group Layout. Click the Mode drop-down button and select the layout mode that you want. Then, you can customize its properties.

Group Layout of Question

See Group Layout of Questions for more details.

Set Scores and Reporting

To set scores and reporting for a True/False question, select the answer area of the question. Then, go to the Properties pane > Interactivity > Score & Reporting

Working with True/False Questions

This section provides a lot of useful options. Out of them, Shuffle Answers is a new feature which allows shuffling answer choices. For more details, see Creating Quizzes.

Add Events and Actions

ActivePresenter offers default events and actions for True/False questions. Generally, a True/False question has four default events for the Graded mode (On CorrectOn IncorrectOn Incomplete, and On Timeout) and three for the Survey mode (On CompleteOn Incomplete, and On Timeout)

If you’ve selected the Graded mode, here what you’ll see:

Events - Actions of True False Questions

You can remove, change, or make events and actions for True/False questions more advanced as you wish. To do that, first, select the answer area. Then, access the Properties pane > Interactivity > Events – Actions. See Working with Events – Actions to learn more.

Add Feedback Messages

ActivePresenter automatically adds default feedback messages for True/ False questions. These default feedback messages can be Correct FeedbackIncorrect Feedback, Try Again FeedbackIncomplete Feedback, and Timeout Feedback (for the Graded mode) or Complete FeedbackIncomplete Feedback, and Timeout Feedback (for the Survey mode). Bear in mind that you can delete, change, or add more if necessary. See Working with Feedback Messages to get more details.
