A true/false question presents a statement that students identify as either accurate or inaccurate.
True/false questions assist students in confirming their basic comprehension of topics and concepts. They can be especially beneficial when placed early in a chapter or used to preface other activity types. These questions may be made more challenging by writing examples that illustrate or contradict ideas from the text, which could then be justified as either true or false by individuals who haven’t read the corresponding material.
