True or False

A True or False question is similar in format to a multiple choice question, except that there are only 2 options, True or False, for example.

A True/False question

True/False questions are quite popular because they are generally easy to write; one does not have to think of lots of plausible but incorrect answers as with an MCQ. However one has to be a little careful with them: a true/false question should contain only a single statement and be one that is either clearly true or false.

It is also arguable that they are unsuitable for summative assessment because the student would score 50% simply by answering at random.
