Pictures as Answers on Quizzes

0 Kudos

Our young kiddos respond best to visuals! I would love to create many quizzes for my kindergarten friends but a lot of our answers need to be pictures. Such as a picture of a cat so that they can correctly decode the given word as the question and choose the picture of the word. It would allow them to have the same access as older students.

Kelvin has provided great guidance on how to embed images in multiple choice quiz questions and responses for both the old (classic) and new quiz tool, so we've archived this idea as it is already possible.
