How do I create a File response item?

  1. Enter a title.
  2. Enter your question.
  3. Add a (media)file if desired.
    A Resource means you can add a PDF that will appear as a separate pop-up window during the test.

  6. Select Summative to use this item in a summative test.
    See Default setting for items for more information about the other settings you find under Tag.
