Label Image (Fill in the Blank): AMP Enhanced Question Type

In the Label Image question type, students can select from a list of potential answers and drag them to the correct response box on an uploaded image.

Question Setup

Enter your question into the Question Setup field. Use the Rich Text Editor which appears when you click into the Question Setup field to apply formatting such as bold and italics, or to insert images or tables. Hover your mouse over the individual icons to view the tooltip explaining the function of each button.

Add an Image

Click Upload Image and browse to an image on your computer or shared drive, or add a direct link to the image in the Image Link field.

Add a Title, which displays when a student hovers their mouse over the image, and Alternate Text to show if the image can’t be displayed to the student.

Click Response Box to add responses to the image, and then drag and drop them to their correct positions. Each box has a number in its upper-right corner and an X in its lower-right corner. Click the X to remove that Response Box from the image.

Add answers in the Possible Responses fields that the student should drag to the correct Response Boxes on the image. Click Response to add more Possible Response fields.

Correct Answer Setup

The numbered dropdown menus in the Correct area correspond to the numbers in the upper-right corner of the Response Boxes on the image. Select from the menu the correct response for each Response Box. For example, from the first dropdown menu on the list select the correct response for Response Box #1, from the second menu select the correct response for Box #2, and so on. Enable Duplicate Responses if you want to reuse the responses. This means a response doesn’t disappear from the list of possible responses when a student drags it into a Response Box on the image.

Choose your Scoring Type for the question after you have entered the correct responses to each blank. Check Exact Match to require that the student respond to all blanks correctly. This option allocates 100% of the possible points for correctly responding to each blanks, and zero points the student responds to one or more blank incorrectly.

Check Partial Match to award points relative to the number of blanks the student responds to correctly. If the Scoring Type is set to Partial Match, the formula for scoring the question is:

{ (Value of points in the % field / # total blanks) * (# of correct responses)}  -    { (value in the Penalty Score field /# total blanks) * (# of incorrect responses)}


  • The Penalty divided by possible blanks = penalty per incorrect answer in percentage form.
  • The Penalty is in relation to the percentage field - it is a relative percentage, not a point value.
  • If you want the student to receive zero credit for half correct, enter 50 into penalty.
    For example, if a student gets 2 right and 1 wrong and you want the assign a score of 33%, set the penalty to 33 and the percentage points to 100.

Additional Setup Options

Set Response Box dimensions in the Additional Setup Options area. Set the width and height of the boxes, and add a pointer on a side of the boxes if desired. For example, select Right in the Pointer dropdown menu to add an arrow on the right side of the box, which you can position on the image to point at a specific area. Finally, select Wordwrap to allow the response box to expand vertically to fit the response into it.

To set the same dimensions for all Response Boxes, fill out the fields in the All Response row.

To customize each box individually, fill out fields in Response Box 1, Response Box 2, and so on. Click Custom to add more Response Box rows.

Enter Author Notes to explain why certain choices are incorrect, or why you chose to allocate a certain percentage of possible points to alternate answers. Author notes only display to those who have permission to access that question’s authoring view. This information does not currently display at any time to instructors or students in the course, or to anyone reviewing Managed Assessment results reports.
