ARCHIVED: In the Oncourse Original Test and Survey tool, how can I add an image to a question?
Note: The Original Test and Survey tool is no longer available; see About the retirement of Original Test and Survey.
When you are adding or editing a question in an assessment, you can insert an image using the appropriate HTML tags.
To insert an image in an assessment, you will need to link it to a URL. If the image is not already available online, upload it to Resources; see Working with files in Resources and Finding the URL of a Resources item.
Note: Consider the size of the image you plan to use. Images larger than 500x500 pixels may not appear in a useful format in your assessment. Do any necessary resizing before uploading the image to Resources.
Inserting images into an assessment
If you are creating a new assessment, from the Main Menu in the
Original Test and Survey tool, click
New Test or
Survey to get started. For more about the process, see ARCHIVED: Steps involved in creating a new test or survey in the Original Test and Survey tool and ARCHIVED: Developing questions for a test or survey in the Original Test and Survey tool.
If you have already created your test or survey, from the Main Menu in
the Original Test and Survey tool, select the assessment you want from
the drop-down list and click
GO. From the Test Menu, click
Questions Menu and then
In the Question Editor:
- Use the drop-down menu and the blue plus sign icon to generate a
new question; alternatively, highlight an existing question and click
the pencil icon to edit it.
- Enter your question into the question text box. To insert the
image into the question, follow the example below:
<image src="URL" alt="alt text" />
URLwith the URL for your image, including the
alt textwith a description of the image suitable to your purpose in the assessment. (The alternative text is used by screen readers for people with visual disabilities as well as browsers with images disabled; in some browsers, alt text may also appear when a user mouses over the image. For more, see How do I include graphical images on a web page?)
You can also insert an image into a multiple choice or matching answer using the same format.
