ULTRA: Create a True/False question

Doesn't seem familiar? Jump to the "Original" help about creating True/False questions.

To create True/False questions, use the Multiple Choice question type. You have the flexibility to use True/False, Yes/No, Agree/Disagree, or another combination of answer choices.

You can edit the text of any question or answer, even after students have made submissions. After submissions exist, you can't add new questions, delete any question, edit the values, or change the correct answers.

More on creating Multiple Choice questions

Multiple Choice and True/False questions are graded automatically. If a test only has these types of questions, the test scores are posted automatically for students to view.
