How do I create a Yes/No Question?

Yes/no questions are asked because they provide a simple and straightforward way to gather information or assess understanding. These types of questions are typically designed to elicit a clear and concise response that can be easily analyzed or interpreted.

For instance, an educator can ask: Does water in the atmosphere exist in all three states of matter? This question is useful for evaluating learners' understanding of the three states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) and how they relate to the water cycle. A yes/no question is appropriate here because the answer is straightforward - either water in the atmosphere exists in all three states of matter or it does not.

Steps to create a Yes/No Question

Go to the assessments for which you want to create sectional test questions.
Click add Questions to create a question under that section and select Yes/No question type.
Create a question by typing in the question prompt and type in the answer choices. Also select the correct answer.
Optionally, provide an explanation for the correct answer. This can help students understand why it is the correct answer.
Tag the question to the domain it belongs to, if necessary. This can help with tracking and organizing questions.
Finally, click on "create question" to create the yes/no question type.
