It's best to add images to quiz questions that already have a stem and answer choices. Whether you've built your own pooled or non-pooled quiz, or you're working with one we've supplied, you can add images to quiz questions by editing them one at a time.

Go to the LaunchPad question editor.

If you're on the LaunchPad home page, click the title of the quiz and Edit Questions. Or, if you're already editing a quiz, go to Questions.


Open the question editor.

If you're editing questions within a pooled quiz, you'll first need to click Show Questions to expand all questions within the pool. Otherwise, hover your cursor over the question to which you wish to add an image and click Edit.


Open the Advanced Formatting html editor.

To the left of the question stem, click the Advanced Formatting icon, which looks like a sheet of paper and a pen.


Position your cursor on the first empty line after the question stem.

The advanced formatting text editor will appear as a pop-up. If the question stem is selected, click your cursor at the end of the stem and hit Enter on your keyboard so that your cursor appears on the next line.


Click Insert/Edit Image icon.


Click Browse.

In the Insert/Edit Image pop-pop, click the Browse button.


Select a file from the list or click Upload File.

If you want to add an image you've previously uploaded into the question editor, select the file from the Course Files list. Otherwise, click Upload File to continue to browse. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will continue to browse, thus will click Upload File.


Click Choose File.

Click Choose File to browse for the image on your hard drive or flash drive.


Select the image file.

Select the image file from wherever you have it saved.


Click OK.

The file name should appear to the right of the Choose File button. When you've confirmed that it's there, click OK.


Click Insert.

You should now see a preview of the image in the Preview Window of the Insert/Edit Image pop-up. Click Insert.


Click OK.

You will now see the image beneath your question stem in the Advanced Formatting html editor. From here, you can add another hard return or adjust the size of the image. When you're done making changes, click OK.


Click Save.
