Updates to Multiple answer question option: Graphic hot spots

We've made the following enhancements to the new Multiple answer graphic hot spot question:

  • Teachers can now define the border style, width, and color of the hot spots. They can select different settings for the initial, unselected spots and the selected spots.
  • Added ability to name the hot spots, so student choices in assessment analytics give more meaningful data. Students don't see the names provided when completing the assessment.
  • Added accessibility messaging for all graphic questions: Graphic questions are not accessible for users who require keyboard-only access or screen readers.

In this release, we also:

  • Fixed an issue in Multiple answer graphic hot spot question where authors could create hot spots that were larger than the background image. 
  • Fixed an issue in the Base/Derivative course Changes screen where the Re-sync selected settings button would do nothing if a Derivative course activity defined badges but the Base course activity did not.
  • Fixed an issue in the Clipboard where checking the Gradable checkbox and then unchecking it would sometimes cause the assigned activity to still be gradable. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Quick-list title was not required in the Clipboard's Save Quick-list dialog box.
  • Fixed a styling issue in the Syllabus Editor's Add Activity dialog box. 
  • Fixed an issue in the rubric grader where users were allowed to enter negative numbers.
  • Fixed a style issue in the domain landing content on the student- and teacher-app home pages.
  • Fixed an issue where the printer-friendly view of Class Statistics would sometimes not color in the circle for the correct answer of a multiple-choice or multiple-answer questions.
  • Fixed an issue in the Duplicate agenda dialog box where you could press the Duplicate button without entering a Target date.


Updates in version 2022.1.13.116.

Additions, Removal, or Changes:

  • Question schema: Added several new attributes to support the styling of the border for graphic questions, including bordercolor, borderwidth, borderstyle, selectedcolor, selectedwidth, and selectedstyle.


  • CopyItems: Fixed an issue where copying an item’s resource (e.g., image) may not work.
