How do you insert a line graph into a quiz?
I do not see embedding content, only embed image. Is that the same?
DARLA, do you want to insert an image of a line graph into a quiz question/quiz answer, or do you want students to be able to submit their answers in the form of a line graph?
If the former, you can create the line graph, save it as an image, and insert the image into the quiz question/answer choice(s) by using the Insert Content into the Page editor. Follow the instructions here: How do I insert course images into the Rich Content Editor using the Content Selector?
Or, you can create the line graph in Microsoft Excel and embed the spreadsheet in the body of the quiz question by using the Using Google Docs for dynamic Canvas content guidance. This is from Microsoft's help page: Present your data in a scatter chart or a line chart
If you want students to upload a line graph as the solution to a question, you can make the question an essay question and ask them to upload a screenshot of their line graph.
Hope this helps!
Insert an image of a line graph into a quiz question with a closed circle on -1 and an open circle on 2. Word is so much easier!
DARLA, for ultimate ease, I'd create a freehand version of the line graph in Word, and then capture it as an image using a free image capture tool. You can then upload the resultant image to the quiz question--and The specified item was not found. provided a great workflow (above) on how to create the quiz question in the quiz itself and manage your quiz question banks accordingly.
...and if you decide you want to use the MS Word document instead of an image, or save the document as a PDF and incorporate that into the quiz question, follow these instructions to embed the document and have it display automatically: How do I set the auto-open for inline preview for files using the Rich Content Editor?
DARLA, how did you ultimately decide to insert your line graph into the quiz?
I have not yet had time to get back on and finish what I started. I'll let
you know next week when I will again have time to work on it.
Have you found a solution that works for you yet?
The question has been answered about how to get the images into Canvas. If the question is really about how to draw a line graph, there are graphing programs out there that will do this.
For Windows, I'm partial to Winplot, by the late Rick Parris. It's still freely available and does basically any graphing you would need up through calculus and differential equations. It's at http://math.exeter.edu/rparris/winplot.html (right click on the heading to save the file). It's a self-extracting zip, but there's just a single file inside of it.
There is a little learning curve, but if you're designing math quizzes/tests, it is a life-saver. When you go to draw an line, use the explicit equation f(x)=0. There's an option to limit the domain and what you want to do at each end (no mark, circle [open or closed], or arrow). You can control which axes to show, the fonts to use on the axes, whether to label them in terms of pi or not, whether or not to show a grid and should it be polar or rectangular (and which quadrants do you want to the grid to show in?)
The one downfall is that it doesn't export to PNG or JPG or GIF. It exports to vector formats. But there is the ability to copy the contents and then paste them into something. So I copy the graphics to the clipboard, switch to my favorite paint program, paste it, and then save from there as a PNG. Then I would follow the instructions provided by the others. I know, sounds like a pain, but if that's what your question was about, that's an alternative to consider.
