Images (multiple choice questions)

Last revised by Henry Knipe on 14 Feb 2024

Images are an optional part of multiple multiple choice questions (MCQ) but necessary to the image interpretation type questions. 

Adding an existing image that is part of a case to a MCQ is easy and there are two ways you can do this.

  1. pin it

  2. download it

If you are not planning to make any changes to the image, then use the pin feature. This will take care of all attributions etc... If you want to add an arrow or crop the image etc... then download it and upload it to the question. It will be stored independently from the case.

Attribution should be included for every image. Once you have uploaded/add the image you will be shown how the attribution will appear and prompted to add the rID or other attribution as needed.

Often a bespoke image works best for a question, rather than simply adding one from an existing case. It is essential, however, that images are formatted in a consistent style. See External links below for downloadable templates.

When you have created your image, export it as a JPG and upload it to the multiple-choice question. 

If you want to use the image for multiple similar questions, then you can create the first question, save it, and then duplicate it using the "duplicate question" option in the top-right cog menu.
