New Question Type for WebQ Surveys and Quizzes

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.
