How to create a true false question

Jul 01, 2021

I am fairly new to Articulate Storyline and am finding it difficult to create a simple true/false question. I created a multiple choice question and the incorrect and correct feedback displays correctly but for the true/false question, I cannot get the correct and incorrect feedback to display. I have tried playing with the variables and triggers without any success.

Also, I've seen some articles that show a True/False Freeform question but I don't see that. I only see a pick one question type. Where is the True/False question type?

I appreciate any feedback you can offer!

Hi, Evette, and welcome to E-Learning Heroes! ✨

Thank you for reaching out!

When you add a True/False question (New Slide > Graded Question > True/False), everything happens automatically for you, so you shouldn't have to add variables or triggers.

You should see the Feedback layers on your Slide View:

If you are not seeing them, I would check the Question Tools settings and make sure Feedback is set to By Question, which should automatically create those layers for you:

Let me know if you are seeing something different.

Hello, I've been using Storyline forever, but we just recently switched to Storyline 360.  I really can't find True/False.  When I go to New Slide > Graded Question, first I see the 3 Affinity Multiple Choice options. If I click on Affinity to turn it off, I see all of the other templates with each of their 3 Multiple Choice options. How do I get a True/false?

When I invoke New Slide > Graded Question, I see this:

A couple of gotchyas:

  • Light and Dark (under Themes in the upper-left) are buttons which will change the view in the Built in Graded Questions space. Be sure both are de-selected.
  • Newest is the default for Sort by in the upper-right. If you're seeing Affinity, change your Sort by from Alphabetical to Newest and deselect Dark under Theme.
