Edit True/False Question Details
To build a True/False question, you will need to add the following details:
- Question title
- The number of points the question is worth (quiz totals are calculated based on combined total of questions)
- The question text (use the Rich Content Editor to include video, images, math equations, or flash activities)
- Text for the feedback bubbles at the end of the question
Select Correct Answer
Hover your cursor to the left of the correct answer to reveal a green "ghost" arrow. Click on the green arrow to the left of the correct answer. You will know which answer is the correct answer because both the arrow and the feedback bubble around that answer will turn green. In this example, the "true" answer is the correct answer.
