Insert file in questions

This is available for Authors.

In Inspera Assessment, all question types can contain inserted files. When a file is inserted into a question, it becomes available to the candidate for downloading through a link.

If all file types are selected, then the Author can upload any file type. If it is not listed in our internal supported types, it will be downloaded with a .dta extension, which the user can then manually modify.

Information: There are security concerns when using SEB and inserted files, such as candidates gaining access to browse the internet when using files such as Excel and Microsoft. It is not recommended that you insert files without testing them. We recommend the method of inserting the files as a PDF panel, main illustration, additional resource, video, or audio clip, depending on the file format.

To learn more about the security concerns associated with SEB and certain file types, visit the Help Center article SEB Options for Computer Labs.
