File Upload Interaction
The File Upload Interaction provides an interface in which Test-takers can upload a pre-written essay, completed artwork, or other form of submission. Usually, these items are scored manually by a human scorer.
This opens a new File Upload Interaction window. There is a question/prompt field at the top, and a Browse box with which to upload the desired submission.
2. Fill in the question field, where it says 'define prompt'.
Add an instruction for the test-taker to submit work, such as Upload document.
3. Select the file type expected.
This can be done in the Interaction Properties panel on the right by setting the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (MIME) type desired for the submission, if applicable.
If a MIME type is selected, this will allow the candidate to submit files of that particular type (.pdf, .doc, .jpg, etc.)
4. Click the blue Done button. Your File Upload Interaction is now complete.
After this step, you can preview your Interaction using the steps given in the Preview instructions.
