Kprime(ETH) Question types A four option multiple true-false question type for moodle, as introduced by Krebs (1997). Kprime questions consist of an item stem and four corresponding statements or options. ETH Zürich 18
MTF (ETH) Question types Multi True false in one stem (question). Brief: The MC question type as it exists in Moodle is not very ideal, since you can only configure questions which are not very well designed regarding best practices of MC questions. Teachers can have more than one true/false question in same stem. this saves creating new questions for each stem. especially when it comes to an essay followed by many questions. ETH Zürich 6
