Do you want to include videos in your advanced assessment? You've come to the right place!

Requirements:

  • Acceptable file types: mp3 (5mb max file size).
  • Can record directly into the assessment using Method 1 (max length is 10 minutes).

There are two methods for adding a video into an Advanced Assessment:

Method 1: Using the Simple Feature: this allows you to embed audio directly into the content of a question so that it appears along with the question. These are added using the Rich Text Toolbar, so they can appear in any question type.

Method 2: Using the Audio Player Feature: this will embed the audio into the item as stand-alone audio, not necessarily embedded into a specific question. These are added using the Audio Player Feature, which is found in the Features section. Please note - only audio files can be used with this option. If you want to record your own audio directly into the assessment, please use method 1.

Continue reading to see details regarding both methods!

Method 1: Using the Simple Feature.

  • Step 1: While composing the question in the Rich Text Toolbar, select the Simple Feature icon.
  • Step 2: Choose Audio from the left side.

  • Step 3.1: If uploading an existing audio recording, select Upload Audio. Then, select the gray + icon and find the video on your device. It may take a few moments to upload; when it is finished uploading, select OK.

  • Step 3.2: If recording new audio, select Record Audio, then, select the microphone icon to begin recording. When you are finished, select Finish. Once you are satisfied with your recording, select OK.
  • Step 4: Choose which style to present the audio in (optional), or preview your audio. When you are satisfied, select OK.

  • Step 5: Continue adding content to the question you are building. The audio will appear as a component in the question (the audio will appear in full when you save the question).

What does "playback limit" mean? If you only want the student to play the audio a certain amount of times, you can enter a number into the Playback Limit field.

Method 2: Using the Audio Player Feature

  • Step 1: Select the Features section and choose Audio Player.
  • Step 2: Upload the audio by selecting the + Add icon. Then, select the gray + icon, choose your audio file, and select OK. Note - if you want to record your own audio directly into the assessment, please see Method 1 above!

  • Step 3: Adjust the player type (options, see examples of the options above), give the audio a heading (optional), then select Save.

  • Step 5: Move the audio to the appropriate location in the item (optional). Since the audio isn't attached to a specific question, it can be moved around within the item by dragging and dropping with the move icon shown below.
