How do I add images to Test/Quiz questions in Sakai?

Go to Resources

Select the Resources tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Create a folder for your images

To the right of the site's root folder, from the Actions drop-down menu, select Create folders.

This displays the Create Folders page.

In the Create Folders page, enter the name of the folder (e.g. "Images") and then select Create Folders Now.

Upload all images for your test or quiz to Resources

Click the Actions button across from the new folder and select Upload Files.

Drag and drop or select the button to browse your computer for the image files.

Once you've selected your files for upload, select Continue at the bottom of the page.

Optional: Modify image folder permissions

If you do not want the images to be visible before the test is available to students, you can hide the test folder but you must make sure that the images are visible.

Select Actions across from the folder of test/quiz images and choose Edit Details.

Scroll down the page to the Availability and Access section and select the Hide this folder but allow access to its contents option. Then, select the Update button at the bottom of the page.

Go to Tests & Quizzes

These steps are for adding an image to a preexisting test/quiz question. For directions on creating new assessments and questions, please see our guides on creating an assessment and creating a new question.

Navigate to the Tests & Quizzes tool in your Sakai course.

Add images to test/quiz questions

Click on the Working Copies: not released to students tab, locate the test/quiz to which want to add images to questions, and select Edit from the Select Action dropdown menu.

Select Edit across from a question on your Test/Quiz.

Scroll down to the Question Text section and select Show All Rich-Text Editors.

Select the Image Icon to add an image to the question text.

In the Image Properties pop-up, select the Browse Server button. In the new window, locate and select the uploaded image you wish to add. Then select OK at the bottom of the window.

After selecting the image, you can choose from the options to add alternative text, set the alignment, and adjust the dimensions of the image. Once finished, select OK.

After adding your image, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Save.
