Professor: Creating a Multiple Choice Question with images representing the options (New Top Hat)

Sometimes a simple text-based answer isn't sufficient for the question you'd like to create and images would be much more effective. Not to worry, we've got you covered! Although the nitty-gritty procedural elements will vary depending on your computer, the overall premise remains the same!

The best way to create a multiple choice question in which you use images to represent the correct answers is to first open all of the images and compile them together in the same space. Some professors choose to do this in Word whereas others will simply arrange them on their computer's backdrop.

Once arranged the way you'd like you can simply take a screenshot of the compiled image so you now have one image that contains all of the images you require for this question. 
Next you'll want to alter your image to include the multiple choice identifiers. Please note, that depending on your computer, you may find it easier to edit the individual images before screenshotting the compilation. You may want to experiment a little with these steps to find the technique that works best for you. 
The last step is to simply attach the image to the question you're creating.
When presented, the image will appear as part of the question and you can simply click to enlarge it should you need!
