In this course, Patrick Crispen teaches the ins and outs of Blackboard 9 so that educators and trainers can get up to speed in the system quickly—even if they've never used Blackboard before. The course explores customizing a course site, managing users, and adding and organizing content, including multimedia. It also shows how to perform student assessments in the Grade Center, as well as how to communicate with students and encourage participation and collaboration.
So we're back in our Test Canvas. We've already added a multiple choice question. By the way don't be worried that the question answers don't line up here. When we get in and view this as a student you'll see that the question and answers do line up. In this case, we're now going to create a true/false question. These are actually very simple to do. Let's scroll down and choose True/False. By the way there is a type of true/ false question here called Either/Or that's like Yes/No, Agree/Disagree, but in this case we're just going to do True/False.
And the question title here is going to be Bloom. We're going to ask question about Bloom's taxonomy. And in the exercise files, I've already written a question on Bloom's taxonomy using the Anderson and Krathwohl rewrite of it, so I'm just going to copy and paste that. Again the question text is not that important in this example. We just want to show you that what you do here is you type in your question text. Again remember cutting and pasting from Microsoft Word is a bad idea.
Go through an intermediate step first just to make sure you don't have any extra formatting. Finally it's going to ask okay the answers, are they're going to show up vertical or horizontal? My recommendation is they should always be vertical. If you put them horizontal,l the students will see the word True on one side and False on the other. Students just aren't used to seeing that. They're still use to remembering on a piece of paper, there is one answer per line. Two answers per line just confuse the students, so vertical is a much better way.
And then, I get to choose is the answer true or false? And it turns out that executing and implementing are not analyzing. They're actually examples of application or apply, so I'm going say this as False. I can give feedback to the students who got it right. I can say "Correct." I can scroll down and say for the students who didn't, "No, it is an example of apply, " and then click on Submit.
Now our question appears at the bottom of the test, question number 2. But I want to you to notice something. We've got that up and down arrow again, so I can if I want to click my mouse, and I can drag question 2 and it becomes question 1. So I can reorder this at any point in time. And what if I find out there's a typo or I don't like it? Well, remember I've got this button with the two downward-facing chevrons and I can always edit anything that I've created in the Blackboard course.
So to create a true/false question access your Test Canvas, click on Create Question, scroll all the way down to the bottom and choose True/False.
