The Imagetool is a feature that you can insert into your Advanced Assessment items. Features are like the "extras" you can add to your items. For more information on questions vs features, click here.

Imagetool allows users to upload their own image as a feature and allow students to interact with it. It is used in conjunction with another question type, as shown below.


  • This example is using a compass in conjunction with a Multiple Choice question.

How to Add the Imagetool to your Advanced Assessment

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: Rather than adding a line reader to an empty item, We recommend building the question first, then adding the Imagetool. If you haven't built the question yet, that's ok too, you can just add it later.

➡️ The example below shows how to add the Imagetool to an item that contains a multiple choice question. The Imagetool can be added to any item at any time.

Step 1 - Add the Feature

  • While in the item you wish to add the Imagetool to, select the + symbol to add a new feature.

  • Select the Features tab and choose the Imagetool.

Step 2: Upload the Image

  • To add your image, select the blue Edit button.

  • The link already uploaded is the default compass; it will be replaced once you add your own image.

  • Select Replace Image, choose and open the image from your device, then select OK.

❗ The steps above are shown from a Mac. The middle step will look different depending on the type of device you are using.

Step 3: Optional Settings

There are a few optional settings you can adjust:

➡️ Button, Button Icon, & Label

  • Button: If you want the image to first appear as a button the students have to click on, choose this option. The Button Icon and Label options are only relevant if you choose to have a button.

  • Button Icon: You can customize the button with your own image by selecting the blue Edit button. Otherwise, leave "Generic" in this field, and it will appear as a standard button (shown in the example below)

  • Label: The label is what will appear on the button (if you choose "Generic" as the icon).

➡️ Size (width and height)

  • You can adjust the size of the image by customizing the width and height here.

➡️ Show Rotate Icon

  • The rotate icon will allow students to rotate the image. If you would like to disable this, uncheck this box.

❗ For the Image Alternative Text setting: this setting is not used in Otus

Step 4: Save

  • Select Save.

Step 5: Move

  • If the image is not where you'd like it, you can move it to another location in the item by selecting the drag and drop icon on the right side. See the example below.
