Selecting "Import assessment content as New Quizzes" for a quiz with an image in the description results in a deleted quiz, a deleted assignment, and one additional assignment with an "online_quiz" submission type, but no linked quiz.

Expected Behavior

The import should create a New Quiz.


Migrate the quiz to New Quizzes using the migrate feature, then migrate it to a different course.

Steps to Reproduce


Prerequisites: A course with New Quizzes Feature Enabled and one classic quiz

  1. Add an image to the quiz description

  2. Export the Quiz as a QTI file

  3. Import the QTI file and select "Import assessment content as New Quizzes" option
