I looked in the guides here and they are pretty useless. The only thing I can find is how a student would upload a file to answer a question. Looks straight forward enough but doesn't work at least in preview mode for the instructor.
I have want to make a quiz with an Excel file the students are to finish the then upload. I was able to attach the file in the quiz question OK. I then went to preview it. In preview I was able to download the file, open it with Excel, finish the file, and saved it to my computer. When I upload the file, nothing happens. Does Preview not work for this? All my other quizzes are multiple choice, match or essay type questions and I can preview those without difficult.. When setting up the quiz for a file upload it there some trick? I looked over all of the settings and nothing seems to be out of place.
In my own testing, if you "Preview" a quiz and then try to use the file upload as if you were a student, it doesn't work. However, if you use "Student View", then it should work for you. How do I view a course as a test student using Student View?
I hope this will be of help to you, Jow. Please let Community members know if you have any other questions about this. Be well, and stay safe.
Hi again, email@example.com...
So, I was helping another Community member with a question about file uploads, and I happened to stumble on this Guide: How do I create a File Upload quiz question?. I would encourage you to look at the information at the top of this Guide in the blue box. Specifically, there is this:
You can Preview a quiz before publishing to verify what students see when taking a quiz. However, file upload quiz questions cannot be tested from the Preview screen. To test a file upload quiz question, the quiz must be published and viewed in Student View.
So, this confirms my response that I posted for you earlier today. I hope this helps!
