For educators, true or false questions are a breeze to develop and incorporate into courses. This simplicity saves valuable preparation time, so you can spend less time coming up with questions and more on crafting detailed feedback.

Limit statement quantity

Stick to three to five statements per question to prevent overwhelming or confusing learners.
