Is there a mobile guide for how a student would answer the different types of quiz questions such as Essay style where they needed to upload a file or an image?

Hey there, @michellemeazell!

Unfortunately, this is a lesson we only have currently for Canvas web and not the mobile apps. I will add a task for our team to look at creating a lesson like this for the Student apps. Definitely makes sense.
