How Do I Create a File Upload Quiz Question?

You can create a question for students that requires a file upload and can be used for PDFs, images, audio files, video files, etc. This question type requires manual grading and accepts one file per question.


Add Question


With the Questions tab [1] selected inside a new quiz, click the Add Question button [2].


Set Name, Type, and Points


Quiz questions are not automatically numbered for instructors. To add a custom name to your quiz question, enter the name in the question text field [1]. Custom names can help you identify quiz questions more easily. Regardless of the question name, students always see quiz questions in the order they are added to the quiz .

Click the drop-down menu and select the File Upload question type [2].

Enter number of points the question is worth (quiz totals are calculated based on combined total of questions) [3].


Edit File Upload Question Details


To complete the question, you will need to enter the following details:

  1. The question text (use the Rich Content Editorto include video, images, math equations, or flash activities)
  2. Text to provide general feedback to provide once the answer is submitted. You will need to click the Comments drop-down arrow to reveal the General answer comments section, and click the Update button once you are done filling out these comments.
