Berlin - Activities | True/false answer

"True/False" activities allow students to choose various answer options. 

This type of activity is divided in two areas:

A. Wording area. It includes a sample text by default, but other components can be added as images, audios, and videos.

B.  Answer options. Each answer option has a text and two buttons: True and False.

Setup process

  • Step 1. Set up activity properties
  • Step 2. Set up the wording
  • Step 3. Set up answer options
  • Step 4. Advanced layout design for answer options
  • Step 5. Advanced layout design: how to add columns

Step 1. Set up activity properties

After adding the activity, go to the "Properties" tab and configure them:

PROPERTY

DESCRIPTION

Title

Activity title.

Mastery

Score required to mark activities as complete and get a positive feedback. Getting a 100% score is required by default.
In order to calculate the score of true/false activities, we use the following formula: number of correct statements / total number of statements.
For example, if an activity has 4 statements and students answer 3 statements correctly: 3/4= 0,75 = 75%.

Randomize

This property allows reordering answer options each time we generate a "Quiz" or a "Reinforcement activity".

AttemptsNumber of attempts available for students to find the right option. Once a student finds the right answer, attempts will expire automatically. If you want unlimited attempts, write "0" attempts. (It will only be finished after overcoming the activity).
CompetencesThis property allows choosing what skills or academic goals are achieved after completing this activity. This option is useful when the platform used to publish a unit keeps record of these data.

Step 2. Set up the wording

1.  Write the text for the question wording (see here).

2. Optionally, you can add more components within the wording. Make sure you select the wording (you will easily find it within the breadcrumb trail) before going to the "Add" tab and include the components you need.

Step 3. Set up answer options

3. Write the text for the answer options.

4. Optionally, the text included in the option can be replaced by an image. Select the option, go to the "Add" tab and add an "Image". Then you can delete the text and leave only the image.

5.  If needed, you can add more answer options. Select an option, go to the "Add" tab, "Insert after", and select "Option".

6. Select each "Option", go to the "Properties" tab, and choose True or False within the "Correct" field.

Step 4. Advanced layout design for answer options

Optionally, we can format answer options to locate them in screens and columns. Options consist of specific properties:

PROPERTY

DESCRIPTION

Correct

This field is used to give a True or False value to each option.

Size

The answer option works like a column, so it occupies 12 spaces in the screen by default (that is, 100% of available space). We can modify the number of spaces occupied by answer options (1-12) to create different layouts: 2 columns (6 spaces each), 3 columns (4 spaces each), etc.

Offset

This option allows creating a breaking space on the left of the option (1-12 spaces).

It's the last column

This property allows marking an option as the last one within a row. This means that the second column will be placed below the first column, and the third column will appear as the last one within the row. This example shows that more options could have been included in the first row, but we have decided to insert them in the next row.

Step 5. Advanced layout design: how to add columns

Normally wordings and answer options are enough to configure activities correctly, but sometimes we want to add especial elements (images, audios, etc.) and create more complex layout designs. So, we will be able to add "Columns".
Columns can be inserted anywhere: after wordings, after answer options, etc.


Within a column, we can add different elements: images audios, videos, texts or answer options. Within the "Properties" tab, we can configure properties like "Size", "Offset" and "It's the last column" (as mentioned in Step 2).

For example, we could add an audio inside a column.
