Via UW Learning & Scholarly Technologies, a new question type has been added to Catalyst’s online survey and quiz tool, WebQ.
WebQ, the Catalyst Web Tool developed for survey, quiz, and research use has a new multiple-choice question type: True/False. When you select this question type, WebQ generates a true/false answer pair. If you want, you can change the responses to a different type (for example: yes/no or male/female).
Instructions for adding a True/False question can be found in the Add multiple choice question page in the WebQ Help Center.
Via the UW Registrar’s Office, this 4-minute video tutorial takes you through the steps of creating a new gradebook, entering grades, and reviewing and submitting grades using Catalyst Tools’ GradeBook.
