I have been trying without success to find a way to make images the answers for matching questions. HELP! I can't find anything on how to do this correctly. All the answers about images in test questions have not worked.
If you go to Edit the Test, In the test canvas window's upper right corner you'll find a Question Settings button. You'll need to make sure the box for "Add images, files and web links to answers" is checked. That should allow you to have the normal paperclip and add images icons, with which you may add whatever you need to the answer.
Hope this helps,
Actually, in my version, Q4 2016, checking this option makes no difference. The paperclip never shows. There is a workaround that I recently showed a course builder in our system.
- You get your question set up, then press enter about 3 or 4 times. I'll explain why in a moment.
- Then, insert the image that needs to go in answer 1, INTO THE QUESTION, and you put it in the question at the bottom after the returns.
- Then click HTML. Copy the html associated ONLY with the image.
- Finding the right code is made easier when it is after a bunch of <p></p>s.
- Go to answer 1 and click HTML and paste the code.
- Because there is a bug associated with images only in question answers (Article #: 000040977) press the space bar and the submit the HTML and submit the answer.
- Go back to your question, delete the image, and insert the image that goes into answer 2 and press on.
- Continue in this fashion with as many questions as you need.
My course builder was backed up against the wall and using this laborious method, she made a magnificent test that was 98% images. I'm sure it took her several days...
2 slight corrections (I was never good at proofing.)
- paperclip should have been insert image icon
- to get around the images only bug, here is correct order: 1) click HTML in answer, paste image HTML submit HTML 2) press space bar to create invisible text 3) submit to finalize answer
It confounds me that this isn't just done by using the text editor's built in insert image function. That would be far more intuitive since you are used to using that everywhere else. Adding images this way still requires you to type something into the text boxes, which seems to defeat the point of having images be the answer choices. I think I prefer just adding the image in the question text box, then cutting it out and pasting it in the answer box. That seems to work without needing you to turn on some odd question setting or including unnecessary text.
