Attachment Types and Requirements

Attachments add another dimension to assessments and questions.


Types of Attachments

  • Exam Level  Attachment: When you create or edit an assessment, you can attach one file on the Assessment Options page. This type of attachment is best used for a resource that the exam takers need to use repeatedly during the assessment (such as a case study, lab values/formulas, or terms/definitions). Exam Takers can access this attachment at any time by using the Exam Controls menu in Examplify.

  • Question Level Attachments and Inline Images: When you create or edit a question, you can attach one or more files. This type of attachment is best used for resources that exam takers need to use to answer a specific question. These attachments can be accessed only when the exam taker is viewing that question. You also can insert images within the question text and the answer choices.
