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

A True/False question is a statement which is either correct or incorrect. It gives learners only two choices for an answer: true or false. With these in mind, it’s so easy to create this type of eLearning question.

Generally, True/False questions are factual-based ones. They come in handy when you want to test learner’s knowledge about a specific idea or concept in a short of time.

Working with True/False Question

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

Create a True/False Question

The next parts show you full details about how to create a True/False question.

Insert a True/False Question

In ActivePresenter 7, the True/False button is meant for creating True/False questions. When clicking this button, the app adds a True/False question as a new question slide.

To insert this question type, do either of the following:

  • In the Interactions tab > True/False Working with True/False Question.
  • In the Home tab > Interactions > True/False.

Then, you see a new question slide like this.

Working with True/False Question

A True/False question has three parts. The top text box is where to add question title. The middle part contains two answer choices. The third part has feedback messages and a Submit button.

Mind the following:

  • Each answer choice comes with a radio button. Freely format this button if you like.
  • You can’t remove or add answers to the True/False question. This question type includes only two answer choices.
  • You’re free to edit the text for answers. As mentioned above, these answers could be True/False, Yes/No, etc.

Note: 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 it and select Set as Default True/False Question. After that, this question appears each time you insert a new True/False question.

Set Correct Answer

To set the correct answer, double-click the radio button that corresponds to the correct answer choice. It’s as simple as that!

Change Answer Layout

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

Do as follows:

Step 1: Select the question.

Step 2: In the Properties pane > Size & Properties > Group Layout. Click the Mode drop-down button and select Grid. Then, customize properties the way you want.

See Group Layout of Questions for more details.

Set Scores and Reporting

To set scores and reporting for a True/False question, select the question first. Then, go to the Properties pane > Interactivity > Score & Reporting. This shows you the Score & Reporting section like this.

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 also offers default events and actions for True/False questions. But you can change them or make them more advanced as you wish.

To do that, first, select the whole question. Then, access the Properties pane > Interactivity > Events – Actions. Here is what you see.

Working with True/False Question

Generally, a True/False question has four events: On Correct, On Incorrect, On Incomplete, and On Timeout. See Working with Events – Actions to learn more.

Add Feedback Messages

As said earlier, the app automatically adds five default feedback messages to the question. But you can add more feedback messages if necessary. Use them to quickly give learners your evaluation. See Working with Feedback Messages to get more details.

Now you’ve learnt how to use True/False questions in ActivePresenter. Hope that this helps you a lot.
